Day 15 - Pirate

I've dressed as a pirate a few times before, and worn something different each time. It's fairly easy to dress as a pirate, pretty much any outfit can be accessorised with an eye patch, pirate hat or head scarf and a sword, to make a convincing pirate. This time I have used a long tiered skirt, tie-dyed flared sleeve top, velvet belt I made, and a black head scarf. Previously I wore black 3/4 length pants, a black and white striped top, a black jacket, fingerless gloves and a red/blue/gold sailorish head scarf, with black boots and stripey socks. The other time I wore the gypsy skirt and head scarf, with a brown top, and a scarf tied around my waist as a belt.

As an extra added bonus for today's post, I have decided to join in with My Place And Yours, over at Punky & Me. The theme for today is On the Shelf, and as soon as I saw that, I thought of my Ode to Tea shelf.

I apologise for the poor quality of this photo, I only had my iPod to take the photo because Hubby has the camera. I seem to have collected quite a few tea related items, in the process of planning two tea parties, and this shelf is where I display some of the larger items. Can you ever have too many teapots? I don't think so.

If you're coming over from the MPAY linky, why don't you check out my Month of Costumes so far. I love getting feedback :)

Thanks so much for joining in! I love your cake stand - did you make it yourself? I smashed mine in the last move & need to make another.

For Halloween you should put some spooky things on your "ode to tea" shelves; then they can be an "oddity!". (Can you hear the symbols crashing lol?)

You definitely can't have too many Teapots. That is a lovely little collection.

Your sooo right, there are NEVER enough teapots, or tea cups! My prize teapot is a double spouter!
I have never seen another, it has a very unfortunate crack down the handle, but its great!
I will have to get a pic!
LOVE LOVE LOVE all the costumes so far! You have been so creative can't see what else you come up with!
