An Orchid to brighten my days

Hello everybody! Thought I'd take a break from painting to share a few things that have been making me happy and also an outfit shoot. First of all, introducing... my beautiful, beautiful Moth Orchid!


I've had it for a month now and hope to get one more out of it. Such joy!



My gorgeous hubby surprised me with these back issues of Frankie!
He bought them from ebay for me to enjoy over the Christmas break.
I'm being very disciplined though and savoring them so they last me as long as possible.

This skirt is one of my latest Op shop Vintage finds. The tag says vintage but I can't get over how current the style is. It reminds me of all the Cue skirts I'm always coveting. And half price day brought it down to $2.50! What a buy!!



Shoes- Op shop buy from when I was 16!



Top is a made in China cheapy that I found in an Oppie.



These earrings were a gift from b that we found in a vintage store in Leura. I love them!



The vintage butterfly slide was a gift from my Aunty. One of those I'll never part with.

Hope you are all well and not too traumatized by today's Mondayness
~Love E xo

E,

I love this outfit! You look amazing by the way (in general and in this outfit!).

I love these orchids too.. I had one but the day tom bought it for me the stem broke on the way home ... sadly it didn't last long at all. I've never had flowers since. Lonely leaves in a pot.

The drawing looks spectacular in the front display too!
