I thought it high time i let you all see my pirate ship where myself and Maryanne reside, but seeing as i'm less of a sea pirate and more of a bicycle pirate currently, my pirate ship resembles a caravan. I love my caravan so so much, every morning i wake up and feel ridiculously happy as i look around my little home. There is tie dye everywhere, a little too much some may say but i think you can NEVER have too much tie dye. I have always been fond of putting feathers in my hair and lately i have been experimenting more and more with my head pieces. I wear them out all the time and often get strangle looks, but as i am used to being called Indian or Gypsy or hippy or pirate it does not really bother me. Also i came across these AMAZING crochet shorts the other day i love them so so so much but i think they are going to be a bit hard to wear out to any public place that is not a beach which is unfortunate. My Technicolour dream coat in the last two pics is also one of my all time favourite items in the world..I think i would be naked if it were not for op shops/thrift stores they are the most magical treasure chests filled with old worn love.
Every the summer i was 17 and living at home i would make a daisy chain crown with the daisys out the front of my house, by the end of the day they were wilted but it didn't matter. Daisys are my absoulute favouite flowers. I tried to find some good fake ones that wouldn't wilt so i could wear them at night but alas the fake flower shops do not favour the white leafed yellow centred variety so this is the best i could find. I just got back from an amazing adventure with sir stompface, it was full of disgises, kittens, cheese and swedish vampires and along the way i also picked up this amazing dress for $10 it makes me feel so 90's i love it!
Yesterday on one of my op shop adventures, i managed to get my hands on this delicious white blazer for $3, it fills my heart with happiness and leaves my wallet with money in it. Later that night whilst cruising with Velvet Jr i saw pretty much the same blazer in sports girl for about a million more dollars and that made me even happier so Happy in fact that i celebrated by listening to the incredible string band. Hooray for op shops and old people who had fashion sense and then lost all their sense and gave their amazing items to the good Sammy's.
It has been a while since a post with a beautiful bicycle specimen involved, to all you bicycle lovers, I'm sorry. This has been due to a few reasons. Firstly Maryanne has been a bit sick and been in and out of surgery, and my beloved Jack well one morning i woke up and he was gone, later that day i received a text from my friend saying she had seen jack on my parents front lawn ready for roadside pickup. My dad explained that jack had died and i just needed to realised that he wasn't going to get better this time. So after just having had my heart ripped out for the second time in 5 months i decided on a new course of action, there was no way that i would put down the sword and leave pirating the streets to other incompetent individuals, no i needed a new comrade and i knew just where to find him...well not exactly where but after some scouting i found out where Mr Velvet, who had conveniently decided to leave the country last december, had stowed Velvet Jr. So a pirating i went and now Velvet Jr is safely in my possession and i can go back to terrorising the streets with my new biker gang The Northwood Bandits. No one will be safe from water and flour bombs NO ONE.
But for now we are off on a midnight mission for licorice.
Status update: mission accomplished, licorice in my stomach...delicious
Saturday was a magical day, in the morning Maryanne and I went on an adventure to find some learn to speak spanish tapes and then we went to get Stompface from the train station and bring her back to out pirate ship. Then we had a picnic in the park and got rather happy. More pics here Estranged best friends club.
I then rediscoverd the joy of flares, yes i pulled out my old one from the bottom of my draws and thought, its about time i put you on my legs, i was stoked they still fit, seeing as they are a size 6, so much joy! I pretty much was the happiest i've been in a pair of jeans in a long long time, they made me feel so free.
Later that day we ventured over to James William Terrys humble abode, yes he lives in a shed
for some fun, then headed out with him to a 21st that me and Stompface were not envited to but JT was telling them i was his sister, so they welcomed us with open arms. The night took us to some crazy places, discovering french teddys, spitting off bridges to try and hit cars, reanacting janet jackson pictures, arguing with bouncers but finally gettng into the clun when the manager saw that at least 15 people wouldnt come in if they didnt let me in, dancing wildly to passion pit, making mi goreng back at JT's at 4 in the morning....Its a wonderfull life.
