photostory friday and a day at the races


because we didn't go camping this january, i was determined to do MANY of the things i couldn't usually do [when we're camping] and top of that list was A DAY AT THE RACES!!!

wellington cup day is more about the fashion than the horses
(although i'm sure the horse owners would disagree!)

i had my dress (bought and worn to mr scrappy's 50th) but needed a fascinator - and i was lucky to find one straight away - it matched my shoes (just in case you were wondering)

as you can see, mr scrappy is unfamiliar with the concept of fascinators.....
