Day 263/365


Ken Done seascape bag, Ken Done dress, Viva La Wombat scarf donated by Lyndel, Fluevogs.

When Lovely Lyndel sent in this Viva La Wombat scarf, I was amazed at just how much it reminded me of Ken Done's very own fish-scape dress (worn Day 196/365). There's something about the way they have both illustrated crabs...

Needless to say, I'm absolutely *chuffed* at Lyndel's donation, as I think it's a quintessential example of 1980s Australiana (see here for the other Viva La Wombat piece I've shown). So this is me taking the vintage scarf 'out for a spin' through the streets and laneways of the Inner West this morning. Excitingly too, this is only my first post for today. Stay tuned for another in the early evening as my Inspiration Friday will by then be at fever pitch!

Lyndel: What can say Lyndel - you're a *dream* of an op-shopper! You know you should start you're own blog about that. Oh hold on! ...

Anon: Sweet? I think may mean I look like a primary school art teacher. I can handle that :-)
