Here & Now ~ Lazy Days, Vintage Love & Pizza

vintage clothes

making pizzas at a family celebration

I fell in love with this old grandstand

Loving // All the photo opportunities there are in my everyday. I just need to make the time and look up.
Eating //  Too much! I am still thinking about the banana bread and mascarpone with strawberries and coconut that I had for breakfast while in Adelaide recently with my mum. It is definitely time to go back to work and get some order back in the eating regime!
Drinking //  I have a little thing for rose at the moment and I got my hands on a Bird in Hand D&B Pour Les Amour rose lovely
Feeling // Rather soggy. It is very humid here, not something that happens often and I will only put up with it if there is rain accompanying the sogginess! We've had a little...fingers crossed for more.
Making //  Photo books on Snapfish. I have many photos and while we have a digital screen and photo screen savers, it is still nice to hold them. I have made a book with a selection of pictures from 2015 and another with photos of my dad to help the grandchildren remember,and cherish those special memories.
Thinking // About a family holiday. I have the travel bug since our family adventure last year. Where to next I wonder...N.Z., Canada, Italy, Switzerland, maybe Austria again???
Dreaming // Of finding some cool vintage clothing. I have been watching Dawn O'Porter in This Old Thing, Friday nights on ABC2. I love her clothes, as well as some of the finds she has made in vintage and second hand clothing shops

I'm joining in 'Here & Now' with Sarah at Say! Little Hen. Pop over and see her 'Here & Now' post if you have time...such beautiful photos :)

Murder in the City and 100 not out!

I. Love. Phryne. Fisher!

I have loved her since the late 1990's when I read the first Phryne Fisher novel and I have lived for those Friday nights when Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries were on T.V

The chance to spend a weekend with my mum and visit the  Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries Costume Exhibition at Ayres House was not to be missed...

my favourite costume...dip anyone? Yes it's bathers!

Oh the hats, the sequins, the feathers, the coats! I love this period of clothing

If you could choose, what period would you like to play dress-up in?

Thanks for dropping by. By the way, this is my 100th post here at 'Kate Writes'

I love it when everything takes on a slower pace, when there is time to play, time to create, time to just be. I treasure the summer holidays...

I hope there is some 'adagio' in your week too.
