BC ♥ Saturdays Club The First Mission
Fri 25th, Mar, 2011
OK ladies, you said you wanted in to the BC ♥ Saturdays Club?
so here ya go.
Last week on Saturday Mr BC and I went out in the rain and had fun on a wet Saturday morning on the beaches and it got me thinking about Saturdays and how much I love them and how it was about time I started doing a bit more of stuff like this before life passes me right on by.
so I thought righto I’ll have a little club all to myself, I’ll let Mr BC in and maybe lg and I’ll do little things every Saturday that I love to do and I’ll take my camera and I’ll photograph what catches my eye…no pressure…walking in the rain, a long coffee with the paper, a sit on the beach with a book, a stroll in the park, a huge decadent lump of chocolate cake…plus I’ll blog stuff I find online that I just lurve..
..and when I blogged that thought last weekend it seems that there are rather a few of you who too would like to be part of this club..rather a few of you who wanna make the most of the best day of week and get some doing-it-for-you groove going on (and if you would like to sign-up you can add your name to the list here …just comment on the post and I will add you to the list..list going live tomorrow…)
So welcome to the place where there is fun in embracing all the things we love…vintage china, newspapers ruffles, coffee, old things, treasure hunting, pots of tea, old linen…here we’ll share a bond for living the good life in white ruffles and taking time out on Saturdays just for you, albeit 15 mins or all afternoon, to hunt out the good stuff and celebrate life, no matter what it’s like, wherever you are.
and to appreciate the power of Saturdays and the red ruffle t-bar
The BC Saturday Club embraces the value of down-time & finding the good in life…whether that’s discovering a tatty old coffee shop all the locals go to on the wrong side of town, a fancy deli or just sitting in the shade with a beer reading a book…
In the I ♥ Saturdays Club it is a requirement that you love all of the things listed below
and that you call yourself a BC’er
ruffles, Frenchy things & bathtub lounging
long socks & vintage china,
ballet flats, clay tags, and old bottles,
reading in old adirondacks
taking photos, fancy deli’s, & summer days
doing the school run in pj’s
Italian coffee, new friends & chandeliers,
treasure hunting & cosy winter things,
flower markets & tea dresses
home boutiques, reading on the beach, flea markets,
hammocks with quilts & making things,
vintage china & white paint
beach scenes, pots of tea, driftwood
home-cooking & sofa sinking
wedges with ruffles
roses with nautical stripes,
wooden floors & old sash windows…
I have some great things in the pipeline for this Club but for today your first
BC ♥ Saturdays mission
should you choose to accept it
is this :
(and it is preferable that there will be a ruffle about your person
it would be great if it was a ruffled t-shirt
go out to a coffee shop
alone or with the one you love
& buy yourself your favourite beverage
take a newspaper
and take a seat
open your paper
sit a bit
relax a bit
read a bit
dream a bit
people watch a bit
imagine a bit
deep breathe a bit
but most of all
just sit and stop
and be a bit
and if you can’t do that, if you haven’t got the money for a cup of coffee in a shop…make your own, take it outside, look up at the sky & do all of the above, if you can’t be alone, then take your kiddos, give them a treat and try anyway and if you are unable to find the time or have any other excuse, and believe me I know them, find a way, baby.
ok, you in?
ready to rock the BC ♥ Saturday’s Club?
I am tellin’ you I am mega busy with sport tomorrow but BC ♥ Saturday Club is taking place in the arvo for me & I will be loving it, I have already earmarked where I am going…nothin’ fancy but boy am I excited and looking forward to it..
and yes I will be wearing a white ruffly t-shirt
even though it makes my arms look big
I’ll be checking in here with what I find on my day tomorrow…I am hoping for nice coffee, good newspapers, vintage things and fab photos!
OK, I’m signing off from Australia
it’s Friday night, the Adirondacks are calling and the Peroni is popped
and I’ll be wanting to know what you’ve been up to and see what you’ve been doing wherever you are on Saturdays…so get snapping and stop by here in the next few days and lemme know…I want photos, evidence and reports!
and don’t forget, whatever you do
…life looks better in wellies
