We’re having a (tea) party!

May 1, 2013

First of all, happy May Day! Although we are having the bank holiday next Monday, the 1st of May is the day of celebrating the arrival of Summer and in old Celtic times and the festival of Beltane. Sadly I won’t be dancing around the Maypole, instead I am at home recovering from yesterday’s surgery. Onward to the niceties…

Last Saturday me and some friends from work gathered at Chloe’s to celebrate Irene and Bex’s birthdays. Everyone contributed with something to eat, Laura prepared some activities and Tom brought the game Twister! We played treasure hunt, pass the parcel and Twister in the end. The parcel had animal masks in them, that we all happily wore. It was like a children’s party but who cares? We had a laugh and everyone loved it. The star of the party was baby Riley, brought in by his Mum Fiona, who at 9 months of age is a real gentleman. I swear I’ve never seen a baby as well behaved as little Riley Roo! I wish I could show you the photos of us. An all around good time was had, with a lot of food thrown in! Needless to say I didn’t eat anything else all day as I had to be rolled back home.

And what did I wear to the party? Details: Angora Sweater – South (via Ebay), Necklace – Anna Dello Russo for H&M, kindly purchased for me by my friend Fábio, Belt – H&M (also worn here), Tutu Skirt – Ebay (also worn here), Tights – Calzedonia (very old), Shoes – Irregular Choice (very old)

This is the jumper I am planning on applying some jewels to, in the same way I did here. Now that I’ve worn it without them, I’m not sure I want to add the jewels anymore. What do you think?

Hope you are having a good week.

    I love these photos, you all look so happy and the masks are cute, cute, cute.
    Irregular Choice never disappoints, those you’re wearing are beautiful! (You know I actually thought you had got some new tattoos?!)

      Nah, everyone always think they’re tattoos but it’s the tights! They’re really cute, don’t know if they’ll be around for a lot longer though, I’ve had them for so many years!

      Absolutely! Just because you are grown up it doesn’t mean you can’t have silly fun every now and then!

      The gator is the star of the show! I’d love to wear it more often, it’s such a quirky piece of jewelry!

    such a funny party, and you look so cute and gorgeous, love that tutu skirt and pretty angora sweater, and all that bijouterie (that necklace is awesome!). I don’t know if this little sweater would be better with some applied jewels, not sure about it!

    Hi Sara!

    thanks so much for your well wishes
    Gee you were young for pre cancerous cells?
    I’m sure i will be fine, i just don’t trust the doctors i’m dealing with, they treat us like farm animals i tell you sometimes – But i have to trust them and phone for my pap results in the future, cause there will be a few coming in the months ahead – Hope you are well

    love and hugs
