If you could deal with your reflection, I'm sure you'd see into my eyes



Yes, indeed, it's drunken shenanigans!
No tree in sight for a change, just the local graffit wall.....


Nix, G and I decided to pop on down to a local bar for a few drinkies last night...after having had a few drinkies at home....
Of course we had to prance about like fools!
I really dig Nix' frock, and that handbag of hers is a favourite!



I wore:
Frock-made by moi out of an old caftan
Jacket-late 60's, opshopped
Cardi-opshopped
Tights-retail
Shoes-Trade Me
Handbag-50's, was G's Mama's. I painted it and decorated it....sacrilege?!
Hairbow-a vintage velvet bow tie


Obligatory drunken lavatory posing....


I can home yesterday to a surprise parcel of joy from Tamera !
A darling vintage silk bow tie, a fabularse pair of earrings that the sweetie had converted to pierced for me, one of her incredible cards, and....


She made me this insanely gloriarse enormous Mrs Slocombe brooch!!!
SQUEE!
Thank you, darling!!


In other news, G and I spent today ('twas a public holiday) clearing out our garden shed, which has been full of who-knows-what crap for years....
I found a small stash of old Siouxsie posters!
I'm quite excited about that.
I think I'll get them laminated, as they're pretty old and torn, but still enjoyable.


I also found this old Incredibly Strange Film Festival poster!
This festival used to tour the country yearly, with all sorts of old cult films.
Thanks to this festival I discovered the talents of Russ Meyer, one of my favourite film directors ever!
We've re-organised, created a pile of stuff to go to the opshops, stuff to sell, and total rubbish!
A long time mission finally accomplished.
I feel virtuous.
Better have a glass of wine.
Happy Friday, lovelies!

edie pop said...

What a great bag!! You did an amazing artwork! I was looking for something similar to paint, so I don't think that it's a sacrilege, especially if working on something vintage make us love it even more! The make up and the hair are astonishing and so the drunken/coloured photo session!!
Tamera's brooch is one of the most creative that I've ever seen, beautiful!!Squeee to all your Siouxsie poster and your love for Russ Meyer deserve a double squeal!!!
Have a wonderful weekend my Pussycat!!

The Grande Dame said...

What a fabulous brooch! Perfect! I love your purple legs too.

Annie said...

Love a bit of drunken shenanigans! You both look fab, and like you're having a blast.

I am so impressed with what you've done with your bag. You've really inspired me to do something with a boring cream one I was thinking of donating.

And how utterly brilliant is that Mrs Slocombe brooch? Wonderful!
Have a great weekend! xxx

OMG the Mrs Slocombe brooch!!! it´s brilliant! xxx

pastcaring said...

Hurray for drunken shenanigans in fuck-off purple tights! I agree that Nix's dress and handbag are wonderful, and the print on your used-to-be-a-kaftan is gloriarse. And a gorgeous purple coat as well - matchy-match Queen!
Tamera knows you well - earrings, a big bow, and Mrs S fretting about her pussy, puurrfect!
Well done for getting your shed shit organised, definitely do something with the old posters, they are fab.
Wine for the virtuous is a universal law, I believe. Enjoy! xxxxxxxx

Louise Mc said...

Those photos look great, like they've been taken on film. I love purple soooo much, looks great on you. Have a great Friday. Xx

Miss Simmonds Says said...

SQUEEEEEE. Not sure what I love the most - the vandalised handbag is amazing. I want one. I love the brooch, it's bloody amazing! I want one. I love all the posters, they're all fantastic! Preserve them all. Mostly I love you, you look gorgeous xxx

thorne garnet said...

Forget the shenanigans, it's the purse and brooch that got me going. You made that purse way better, vintage isn't museum. The Siouxsie posters are bringing back lots of memories, love that band.

Krista said...

Yah for drunken displays of affection!you both look good and liquored up and me wants to play too! I love your purple shadow too, sultry! Oh my goodness the brooch from Tamera is exquisitly tacky and will look so good on your glourious chest!

I am digging all the old posters you found especially that film one, how cool is that! I love rediscovering things I forgot I had! Enjoy the weekend love!
Xxoo

Amber of Butane Anvil said...

Utterly delightful and great fun as ever, Helga! And what a wonderful discovery in the shed, hooray!

Krista said...

And how could I not comment on the magic bag you made holy crap mama I think you need to share with us how you did that. I lurve it!

Vix said...

No-one does drunken goings-on as well as you do, we're always to pissed to even think of getting the camera.
Your make up is fabulous and I'd happily slap both your lairy arses. The handbag is a work of art and as for Tamera's creations, I'm speechless. that brooch is possibly the best thing I've seen ever!
How cool is your Siouxsie stuff? Very!
Love! Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Lucy Nation said...

Wow, vintage Siouxsie posters. They will look great framed. My favourite is the blue 'Autumn 1985' one. There's nothing like a bit of drunken posing. The grafitti wall is the perfect backdrop. You and Jo look fab and I would love to join you on a night out!

Btw, love the Miss Slocombe brooch xxx

Devil made in Heaven said...

Those posters are a great find! :) I've been cleaning out all the boxes from our moving and really surprised what I find, but not such cool posters. The photo's of you girls are funny. Brings a smile on my face. :D Wished I could come with you sometime. Must be real fun.
I love both your bags. Nix's handbag is sweet and I love what you did to yours.
xxxx have a lovely day!
