Tiki Time!

Last night we went round to our friends Martin and Carla's place for Martin's tiki themed birthday party. I've stolen all these pictures from Carla. Here is what I wore:

Dress: the one I got for modelling in the CherryBomb fashion show which is now actually about four inches too big for me - I'm going to have to make some adjustments!
Cardigan: new tiki design from Collectif, birthday gift from my friend Kathy
Handbag: Christmas gift from Paul
Shoes and Belt: New Look

Here is Carla with Martin's birthday cake which she decorated. The tikis and cocktail bar weren't just for the party, their whole flat is decorated that way, it's marvellous.

My friend Natalie brought round her ukulele and saw. I was supposed to bring my theremin too, but alas Paul's mum had used up all the 9V batteries!

Here I am torturing everyone with my first go at playing the saw! I love it, and am planning on getting my own. Prepare your ears for caterwauling!

Here is Nat showing us how music should actually sound, and birthday boy Martin having a go at accompanying her on the saw.


  1. So envious - your friend has a ship bar! Love the tiki cardigan :)

  2. Thanks :) Kathy just got them in at Rockers.

    You're not as envious as I am... the boat bar is my vintage 'one that got away'! Before Martin and Carla got one, I saw a house clearance guy take one from a house on my street into his van with a load of rubbish furniture. I didn't have any cash on me, so I couldn't offer him anything for it. It haunts me to this day!
