Show & tell

I have a few more spoils to show and tell from my last chazzing expedition. I bought the beautiful Italian silk grey Paisley scarf to make a couple of drawstring bags from.

The way you can tell a really good quality silk scarf is if the edges are hand-finshed, like you can see in this photo.

I pounced on the Liberty shawl, which was just a fiver, and is officially the start of my Christmas shopping - that's one person ticked off the list so far.

And the black, wool a-line skirt is a very simple, pleasing shape - just a wraparound skirt which fastens with two buttons at the waist. And it's the perfect partner to my new GAP grid jumper.

In line with this season's love for all things pink, this is quite the versatile number, as it looks just as good worn back-to-front with the buttons going down the back. Still in two minds as to whether to change the buttons - I do like the covered buttons, but can't help thinking that little gold buttons would change the look of this top quite nicely. What do you reckon?

And so I worked up an appetite for lunch, opting for some Homity Pie which has inspired me to attempt this recipe at home.
