Due to rain — and boy were we glad for it, the water tank situation was seeming a little precarious — bridge construction has been on hold. We don’t want anyone slipping into that ditch (there may be trolls). Sorry. I know you were hanging out to see what we’d been up to. I was excited to show you. Next Sunday…
In the meantime I’m drying lavender to make lavender bags. There seem to be lots of moths here and they’ve been chewing my cardies something chronic. Mind you, I have noticed that, in a 1990s revival, clothing with holes is all the rage so perhaps I am just once again hurtling toward the cutting edge (pun intended) of fashion.
As those of us over 20 know, everything old becomes new again. Now that denim waistcoats and white linen shirts are back in, I remembered some such items that had been hanging in the back of the wardrobe for years. Too nice to throw out, but until now a bit passé. Note to self: hold onto those ugg boots for another year or so.
I dragged them out, washed them and noticed with satisfaction that they are both old Max Clothing gear from the days when their stuff was still made in New Zealand. The waistcoat was an op shop find in the mid 1990s, the linen shirt from the Onehunga Dress Smart when it first opened in [date redacted as I simply cannot be that old].
In case you’re interested here are some instructions for how to make your very own holes in your jeans. In 10 steps, with pictures. Use scissors. Make holes. Really? Really?! No doubt pretty soon someone will create instructions for putting your very own undies on.
Thought… I could be selling moths to Paris Hilton so she can create custom holes in her woolies. Rare NZ moths with organic credentials. Haha!
