Hello ladies...whilst sitting here doing some ebay stuff!! thought I may as well also do another blog. I am getting to be a bit of a BLOGAHOLIC!!

As promised, i took my gorgeous 86 yo mum out shopping yesterday to CHADSTONE shopping centre....for interstate or overseas ladies...THIS IS JUST a MASSIVE shopping place...& it keeps growing and growing...BUT I LOVE IT..

The LATEST NEW section has GORGEOUS shops..."PROVINCIAL HOME LIVING".(which i have mentioned before..friends of mine now have about 15 of these stores across victoria...and the FRENCH devotee would LOVE LOVE IT..i need to take some photos to show you all)...AND their prices are JUST soo reasonable...IT is a DIVINE SHOP!!

there is also a lovely "SIMON JOHNSON" store..."WHEEL & BARROW" ETC ETC..

Mum bought a lot of lovely things...clothes..some etc...
I boght just a few cute little bits & bobs from the Manchester/homewares store of Morgan & FINCH..I have to admit I DO LOVE THIS SHOP...their displays are well as their stock.

I went a BIT psycho re EASTER goodies.. AND SOME TIN BUTTERFLIES which can just stick onto things...not sure what shall do with them...but loved them...per photos..
i have also been playing around with the different sized eggs i bought...and shall probably list this lot on ebay....(per the photo with pink basket/raffia etc..)..

I also purchased the latest issue of ROMANTIC HOMES mag...which IS ONE OF THE BEST i have seen...GORGEOUS photos/ideas..

OHH!! and I also bought this LOVELY girlie necklace from Portmans...I was actually wearing my NEW grey dress (from TARGET)....the one photographed ... which i think is a great SHIFT dress...has little fully lined...lovely soft material...and WAS PRETTY can be worn in winter with a little top underneath...a scarf etc...I think I may buy another when you find something you love..looks 2 thereof!!...and i thought this lovely necklace complimented it very nicely??

OH well!! my next door neighbour has invited me in for dinner tonight (seeing as it is just little OLD ME & sooty home alone)...SO i bought her the MOST beautiful oil with the sticky things sticking scent thingey...

I bought one for myself last week from our local BLUE ILLUSIONS store...and the whole house smells divine..
It is a Christopher Vine ONE...and the box it came in is soo DIVINE just to keep as a display in itself...(per photos)...
anyway..better get back to trying to list on ebay...I have been a bit slack lately..
and as are ALL out of sequence re story line!!
and is going to be another 40 degree day on all ladies/men in country Victoria...please take care!! AGAIN!!

Hi Andrea,
All your Easter goodies look lovely, and what a coincidence I have been looking at a necklace almost identical to that one, and just trying to decide if I will buy it or not.. Enjoy your dinner!
