It was the weirdest thing. I was on the lookout for some butter-soft grey linen to make a shirt exactly like this. We’d taken a friend who is unable to drive to the doctor and while waiting for his blood tests, the boy and I hit the op shop.
I found the exact shirt I had been planning to sew. It fits perfectly.
So strange. And wonderful!
That morning I had opened my letterbox to find these fabulous sunshine yellow Saltwater sandals from my sister.
It’s been a rough month or so and a blast of sunshine happiness was just what was needed. She didn’t even know the half of what we’ve had going on either. Sisters. They just know.
I have never worn yellow but I am loving the pops of colour.
I have realised the reason the op shop was groaning at the seams with great finds was the KonMari method, which is currently sweeping social media. Marie Kondo and her method have been around for years but I think she might have hired a new social media savvy PR agent, everyone’s decluttering. Which makes for some great op shop finds at the moment. We came with a bag of joy. Thank you Marie!
