A Girlie Weekend


What a fabulous weekend spent with my two sisters in Wellington.  These photos were taken on Sunday from Oriental Parade.  It was a beautiful day.  I so love being in Wellington when there are blue skies and all is well.  The scenery is gorgeous.  We had morning tea on the boat after shoe shopping.  For Me!!  I can never find shoes because of my big feet but we found 3 pair in one shop and bought them all!!.

That's my two younger sisters.  They don't like having their photos taken.
 We went to Fabricabrac where there are stalls with fabric, fabric and fabric, braids and embellishments, and buttons...Yes my friend Ruth and her beautiful buttons.  I bought myself an early birthday present or two

Painted glass.. awesome for a brooch

Bakelite, Celluloid, another Head for my Head collection and four gorgeous little lustred black glass buttons.
yeah I know I'm sad but I love buttons!  On the way home I called into my button friend to collect some card and she gave me these gorgeous buttons.... I love the colours

They are an excellent addition to my collection of Moonglow glass buttons
