Another refash - for winter

I got the pot of dye out for this one!
Threw the doily in, sewed the doily above the pocket,
some random buttons, and now very wearable.
Here is the garment before, bought this at the Oppy
brand new, but beige, I'm not quiet ready for beige yet!
I was attracted to the long, drapey shape and the pockets.

Nothing like a refash to tweak the mojo!
I took a rather ill-fitting strapless dress that I bought at the markets and turned it
into a little swing top for Little P.
I love the fabric, think that's why I bought said dress.
Weekend is almost upon us - hope you have some lovely things
planned at your place.

When opportunity knocks ....

My Oppy threw this Georg Jensen stainless steel 'Bloom Bowl' at me today.
I spied it from across the room, sitting with all the other bowls, my heart leapt,
"I know that shape" ...... as soon as I held it I knew it was the real thing.
I'm not a fan of stainless steel, cept when it has Georg Jensen engraved on it.
I don't know what it is about Danish Design, there's just something about
the forms, the timelessness of each piece and the way they just
'hold their own' in a space.
And I know it's rude to talk about money,
but I paid $8.00.
