Cyan – 1 block colour with accessories 8 ways

Cyan – 1 block colour with scarves 8 ways

I decided that I would put together an outfit using a block colour of black, as everyone is wearing black these days.

My mum has started wearing scarves and she is looking great in them, today for our mother’s day luncheon she had the most beautiful scarf that was black with magnificent autumn leaves tied at her neck, and I thought it was just a striking colour scheme and I thought this week I would include a black column with different scarves to create different outfits.

Cyan 8 ways

These multi coloured scarves are just beautiful and can be worn all through the year to create different looks with each one, however I thought that as it is starting to get a little cooler, the core pieces for this capsule are a black jumper and long pants (trousers) with cyan shoes and bag and put together with the different scarves to create 8 different outfits.

If you were going out to different functions mixing with different people, you would get away with all of the above.

Thankyou for a Beautiful Mother’s day

I spent a lovely mother’s day today with my Mum, my daughter in law, her mother, her future sister in law and her mother and it was a lovely day.

Granma and I caught the train from Mandurah into the city and walked to the Duxton to have high tea, we were nearly an hour early but it was lovely to just sit in the foyer and talk.

Our reservation was for lunch time and it was just lovely. I had a separate tier of food as I don’t eat cheese, but the selections for everybody were just divine.

I had texts from both of my boys, except 1 of them sent me a text first wishing me a happy birthday and then remembering it was mother’s day, I was lucky and got another one, stating “Mother’s Day“.

I also got a beautiful bunch of pink roses from my lovely daughter in law.

Thankyou ladies for a lovely day.

Today’s funny Sunday 13th May 2013

An Australian is having breakfast, in Paris, one morning (coffee, croissants, bread, butter and jam) when a Frenchman, chewing bubble-gum, sits down next to him.    The Australian ignores the Frenchman who, nevertheless, starts a conversation.

Frenchman: “You  Australian  folk eat the whole bread??”

Australian   (in a bad mood): “Of course.”

Frenchman: (after blowing a huge bubble) “We don’t.  In France, we only eat what’s inside.  The crusts we collect in a container, recycle it, transform them into croissants and sell them to  Australia.”   The Frenchman has a smirk on his face.

The Australian listens in silence.

The Frenchman persists: “Do you eat jam  with the bread??”

Australian    “Of Course.”

Frenchman: (cracking his bubble-gum between his teeth and chuckling).

“We don’t.  In France we eat fresh fruit for breakfast, then we put all the peels, seeds, and leftovers in containers, recycle them, transform them into jam, and sell the jam to Australia .”

After a moment of silence, The Australian then asks: “Do you have sex in France?

Frenchman: “Why of course we do”, he says with a big smirk.

Australian “And what do you do with the condoms once you’ve used them?”

Frenchman: “We throw them away, of course.”

Australian: “We don’t.  In Australia, we put them in a container, recycle them, melt them down into bubble-gum, and sell them to France.”
