A Lady and her Tramp


This is a very, very, belated post - these pictures were taken the week of Valentine's Day! The gent and I decided to make the most of the beautiful weather and see an open-air concert at the Myer Music Bowl.

I finished this skirt after a few months of procrastination (I made the mistake of finishing each seam with bias tape, which took FOREVER). The fabric is vintage - it was released in a kit for home sewers when the movie originally came out. The end project is a lovely, twirly circle skirt.

So swirly! Whoosh!

We of course had to stop by the pet store. These puppies looked like baby Tramps! So beardy!

In the end it was a lovely, peaceful day out - perfect for a low key celebration of loooove (tee hee). It's always nice to do things like this, to give us the energy to carry on with the mundane stuff (work and uni and housework, oh my). We are trying to take it in turns to plan a mega-date once a month. Hopefully this weekend we will make it to the zoo, if I am well again (bedridden with a cold at the moment - it is the only way I can fnd the time to blog!) What do you do to keep the spark in a relationship when 'real life' starts to take over, dear readers?

Joining the Club

I want to enter the ranks of awesome necktie wearers like this snazzy portrait subject!

Am I on my way?
