Hello Blogland and bloggy buddies. After a brief unplanned hiatus I Am Back.
I had to take a little break here after rushing off to hospital to have my appendix out a couple of weeks ago. And I would just like to say, to everyone who told me it was so routine, that I'd be up and about after a few days - what a load of bollocks. I felt awful and it took more than a few days to get back on my feet.
Anyway, I'm much recovered now and ready for my close up.
I bought this gorgeous dress online last week to cheer myself up, as I wasn't in any state to even think about sewing. You can nab it here
My shoes were opshopped.
As you can see my pink hair is fading and in need of a going-over post haste.
Eeep Petticoat Alert!
Whilst catching up with everyone's blogs today I discovered the lovely Melanie of The Folly Bird has bestowed the Liebster Blog award upon me. Thank you Melanie!!
And now I have some questions from Melanie to answer...
1) What was the last book you read? Did you enjoy it?
The last book I read was The Truth, by Terry Pratchett. I re-read it for about the 10th time as I couldn't concentrate on anything new lately. I did indeed enjoy it, again. I'm also still plowing my way through the bloody Faberge Egg book (see top left of blog page)
2) Andy Warhol claimed "In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes". Have you had your fifteen minutes?
I like to think of this blog as my 15 minutes.
3) Is there a past fashion trend, (let's say pre-1962) that you find absurd?
Yes. Yes there is. Those ridiculous ruffle neck ruff things. How could they possibly ever have been a trend?? I guarantee they will never ever come back into fashion.
4) Are they any vintage fashion 'icons' that you really just don't like?
No one comes to mind immediately, so I'm going to have to say no. Unless you count anyone who wore the above neck ruffle things. Not A Fan.
5) What is the most embarrassing thing that has happened to you?
There have been many mornings I've woken up from a night of alcoholic excess and thought, Ohhh...crap. Oh, why did I say/do that? Fortunately I can honestly say those days are behind me now. And no, I'm not going to mention anything specifically.
6) Have you met any famous people?
John Marsden came to my high school once. He asked what I had scribbled all over my pink glasses case. (I believe they were lyrics to a Veruca Salt song) And I met a couple of members from Marilyn Manson backstage once, but I can't remember who exactly they were (no autographs either, darn it all to heck).
7) What was the last thing you purchased?
This gorgeous green dress from ASOS, which should arrive on Monday :)
8) What's in your handbag/purse right now?
Three red lipsticks, several doctor's certificates, bloody myki bloody cards, my wallet, keys and bundles of tissues.
9) What is your favourite television programme?
Currently, Frasier. I've been working my way through it while recovering on the couch over the past couple of weeks.
10) Is there something that most people can do, that you simply can't?
I absolutely cannot walk up or down stairs/steps without looking where I'm going. How do people in films and on tv manage to go trotting at top speed up (or down) steps without looking at their feet? I feel like I'm about to fall if I don't look where I'm going. I'm sure most other people are capable of conquering stairs without checking their feet every step of the way.
I feel famous now! I will be back in the next couple of days with some sewing projects I have almost finished. And to end on a high note, or just in case you forgot, here is my lovely blue dress again.
