Very emnbarrassing for me, but I hope this gives you a giggle. Picture this - pub on a Thursday afternoon, still full from lunch, mother walks in with children needing a toilet stop, toilet stop complete, rushing, rushing, make way through pub. Full. Of. Men. Are you dying yet? Racing out the door 5 paces ahead of my children when my 10 year old says, "Wait, Mum, Mum, there's a problem!"
Yes, that's right. Dress caught in pantihose! I skiddadled faster than Hairy Mclary.
Moral of the story....always throw out your holey pantihose. Firstly, because they are holey and secondly, because they will look ghastly when your dress is caught up in them.
So, in the name of my embarrassment, think of this often and smile. Bloody hell, it's all I can do!

These little pieces are from the box of stencils on yesterdays post. They are a recent vintage find and are ever so endearing. That fox is, well, foxy to say the least!
Over the next 19 days of habit forming blogging, I may just post the odd photo, something I'm working on, a covetable piece or two or hopefully something of inspiration. These days when I look around at blogs, I love nothing better than finding a simple image from somebodies private world. Usually, it's just enough to put a little spring in my step, put my shoulders back and generally feel grateful.
Note: Spell check is telling me covetable is not a word and the big fat dictionary is too far away. I think it is a word. If it isn't, it's a new word for today. Ok.

These magnificent images are from Small Magazine.
It's so exciting when another issue hits the computer. The pages are so jammed with such gorgeousness which I find so inspiring. Be sure to have a look at the short film "City Mice" - cute.
And the more I look at this particular shoot, the more I wish we had a little bit of Liberty of London in our Target stores. Check out those gorgeous pillows the little ones are lying on. Oh, and check that quilt out!
i'm coming back to credit those photos.

Blogger - what are you doing? I haven't even told my story yet!
These little 1/2 inch hexagons I've been working on since Easter, after seeing something similiar at MO by Brigette Giblin. They are such an addictive little habit, especially given that I was never, ever going to do hexagons, ever. But I am hooked.

Much to my delight, there were many Sophie Digard pieces worn by both Fanny and Toots Brawne.
Not to mention the ruffles and feathers and English countryside and wit and Bluebell walks and Georgian homes and Daffodil gardens and desperation and divine fabric stitched exquisitely and passion and intimacy and wonderful music and pure, pure love.
This is a "must own" movie. And you can get your very own Sophie Digard here.

With no plans, we just happened upon Luna Park tonight - just to walk through, no rides, just walking.
