Say yes to Siesta!

I had a rather laid back week.The loving hubby celebrated his 29th birthday this week. We had a lovely dinner at an Indian restaurant by the foreshore.So that was nice and all googly romantic.The rest of the week I was able to finally put my feet up and relax. I got to indulge in a few afternoon naps too, how lucky of me, haven't done that in ages. Now I understand why they have siestas in those really hot countries.The weather here has been playing summer quite early.I think it wouldn't be too bad an idea if we incorporated that in Perth , considering we now have daylight savings, something I cannot comprehend (do note that our shops close at 5.00 pm on the dot) so what exactly is the point of daylight savings? It's still pretty bright around 9 in the evening. I think having a siesta in the afternoons during summer would be great then we can have the shopping hours stretched till the night. At least that way I can do my shopping while it 's still bright.Why can't we be normal like all those other normal places :) . Oh yes if you haven't heard Australia has found itself a new prime minister.A Mr Kevin Rudd, no more bushy eyebrows, lets hope he comes up with a siesta reform for Perth (wishful thinking Adla!) haha I'm sure the majority would be just as happy if industrial relation laws are scrapped and a zillion other issues reformed.Ok enough politic talk,I've taken pictures of the things I bought at the fair and am flaunting them here for the rest of you girls to want them too. Being naughty I know! My best buy were these vintage hand dyed laces. This lady had a bridal boutique once upon a time and she had remnants of these beautiful laces that she dyed in the prettiest pastels.I've bought enough to sell some on my etsy shop. So if you are interested head down over and grab yourself some before it disappears.I also got a pretty soldered pendant with a vintage picture of a little girl on both sides, created by the girls at Artistic Journey. And always happy to be adding more music sheets and postcards to Vintage Delights collection , all found at the antique section of the fair.

Much blogging love,

Knowing the weather in Perth, I think the siesta idea is a wonderful one. Dont think we could get away with it here in Melbourne though! love those laces too...

Lori said...

oh my! those laces are just to die for lovely and the charms are very sweet!!!

Wanda @ Just Vintage said...

Those laces are beautiful!

I love daylight savings time, myself. Don't like dark time so much and anything we can do to lengthen the day is fine with me. We use the extra daylight to work or play outside when it's not so brutally hot. Maybe you'll get used to it quickly. I like the siesta idea, too. :-)

Hi Adla,
Wow...great shopping girlfriend.
Those laces are sooo pretty.

Enjoy your siestas as I plan to enjoy one in my hammock this very afternoon in readiness for a late night party tonight.

Have a great weekend,
