Day 4 Frocktober – A lovely day for a stroll……

Dear Diary,

Miss D and I decided to take a stroll today, all be it at the back of the farm, so we jumped in the car and took off to my favourite place where it is so peaceful and stress free.

and a little upcycled number called KELLY (which Miss D is rocking) made from a ladies lace top and a mans business shirt, we set off to check how the crops are growing, and I must say, they are looking great!

So much better than the miserable year we all had last year, the weather has really been on our side, so hopefully that makes for some very happy farmers out here by the end of harvest!

It’s so beautiful out here, I am so grateful of our decision to come back home to the country after some tough years away.

It is so peaceful and I love watching all the seasons fly by, from this time of year – watching the crops grow (sometimes you can even hear them grow, it is so quiet), to the bustle of harvest and all of the hard working harvesters out there when the weather is warm and balmy.  My favourite time of year would have to be seeding time though, the smell of freshly turned earth and the intense colours of bright blue sky, green trees and rich brown fertile land.  I swear, my eyes have been turned on since coming home and I see things so much more brightly and these walks intensify it more when you have time to breath it all in (that is until the flies get too bad and you breath them in too, only a small hazard which is really quite insignificant to me in the scale of things)

Better get home and get some dinner on, the older kids can come next time, get them off their butts and enjoying the sunshine.  Now to get this gate closed so the sheep don’t have a “field day” in here…..

Don’t forget about donating while we are feeling relaxed and calm to remember that while we are living quite a blessed life, there are others suffering and we can all do something, no matter how small, to make others lives easier.

Norma Jean

While wearing this little number, there is no cubic zirconia in sight, it is Diamonds all the way!!

I created this one with Marilyn in mind, a one shoulder full lace swing dress which can be worn with or without the plaited fabric belt.

I will be rocking this one at the Art Exhibition in my town on Friday night as my two Dowerin Field day Ag Art award dresses, the 2012 and 2013 entries will be featured there.

This one is in one of my favourite colours but yours could be any colour you wish.

It features the same colour lace as the satin lining for a colour block effect, a brooch on the shoulder and a rhinestone belt clasp on the plaited belt.

Available in your colour choice

Seeing it in these photos with this backdrop kind of reminds me of a Grecian mermaid coming ashore to grace us with her beauty…….

Anyway, I would love to know what you think of NORMA JEAN and also would love to make you one….what colour you would choose??
