"Everything you see I owe to spaghetti"
Sophia Loren said that. Not me - I should be so lucky!
(so lucky, lucky, lucky - get it?
I am on fire this arvo! Ha-ha!)
Ok, so I know the only thing Sophia and I have in common is our love for pasta (truth be told, there's lamb shanks in that pot - not spaghetti!), but I thought I'd include this pic so that you can see our newly painted kitchen cabinetry. It looks so much better now that all that horrible orangey-oak is covered up with (more than!) a few coats of Murobond Dark Night, don't you think? And once those hideous apricot tiles are replaced with some of these babies
Anyway back to more important things.
It's only day three of me poncing about in a frock, and already, between us, we've raised $920.50 for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation!
What can I say? You guys rock! Your support and generosity has blown me away and I thank you very much.
Special thanks today to these lovely girls: librarygirl, Bron, Sally (check out her sharpies), mmmc and the PipSTAR xxx
Maybe you could sponsor me too?
It would be wonderful if you could...Do it here. Please.
Today I am wearing a gorgeous frock from the 50's.
It is in beautiful vintage condition - if you'd like to buy it just send me a note - as before, I'll spot for postage.
The vintage net petticoat I am wearing underneath is also for sale. It is white and in perfect condition. It will make whatever you're wearing puff out very nicely. Indeed. If it's froth, or flounce, or boof you're after, this is the petticoat for you! I'd like $20 for it because I know they're hard to come by, and twenty bucks is a bargain really. *petticoat sold*
(all money I raise from selling my frocks will also be donated to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund)
One more little thing (and I hope you don't mind me asking), would you please pop a link to my Frocktober posts on your blogs? Or facebook, or whatever it is you hip young things do? I would be extremely grateful if you could. Together we might be able to raise even more than $1000! I hope you'll give it some thought...
I'll leave it with you x
