Not so still life with Tea Towel




Today we struck out together - destination, park. Sure there were slides and swings and diggers that really dig with levers and stuff (technical terms) ... but all that is so passe when fine tuning your rock jumping skills. The playground is surrounded by a circle of boulders ... so we did the jumping circuit enough times to feel like schumacher. Still it gave her new tunic a good test run ... nice charcoal drill with a linen applique ... irish linen no less ... from a vintage tea towel. Dunc reckons it looks dead scando. Intoxicating autumn sunshiney days. Ace.

My daughter (3) saw your post on the screen and said "That's a beautiful top".

So cute!

Ok, I just want to be two again and get away with wearing funky tunics and Schumacher-ing around in rock circles.

Oh Gemma, that brings back memories of when my Kate was a tiny tot and spent hours rock climbing on those same rocks. Cute top.

Hi Jen... it's weird Dunc speak for very scandinavian-like ... not like murdered ABBA, which now that I read it back, it could be taken as!

JasperBoy said...

Of course! If it was a dead ABBA tunic Edie would have had her picture taken front profile, side profile, front profile style....
