Imagine I am speaking in an OUTRAGEOUS French accent...

'Allo, my little dumplings of delight!
You are treated to a second post today because it is wafer thin and I am feeling very generous!
This is what I wore to work this very morning, and I feel ever so feminine and smothered in creamy deliciousness......

Discretely involved is:
Frock-vintage, someones homemade, opshopped
Cardi-vintage, church fair
Boots-Trade Me
Most Incredible Hair Ornament-the very talented Jem
Handbag-"So obviously Rex!" NZ vintage brand, Retropolitan garage sale
Necklace-Turkey, bought for me by my darling G in Goreme.
* I freakin' love that hair ornament, Jem, would it be terribly rude to imply politely that I would love another??!!!

We have purchased this little pretty off Trade Me, and we are rather pleased with ourselves, as it was a pretty good price. We would like to have a collection of these beauties, but so far have been hampered by price and/or quality.

Whilst I was picking it up, I spied this pretty modern "retro" lamp,and scored it for a tenner.
Not sure where we will put it, but I couldn't pass it up. I don't mind that it is new, as we will most likely end up using it outside for parties etc, I suspect.

Ooo, I wish to expose to you the interior of my handbag, which is somewhat less impressive than the exterior!! I know not what went on in here!
So, my lucious little eclairs doused in chocolate orange sauce and oozing with cream beaten by virgin nuns wearing pantalets of the finest broderie anglaise, I must away to prepare for the evening ahead, and to enjoy more vino, which in no way has anything to do with my speaking in an outrageous French accent.....
"I want to make love to you all!"
Until tomorrow.....

Dear Helga,
I'll get onto Father Kitschmas....I have to check out if you've been naughty or nice this year first ;)
Any preferences in couleurs...bleu, jaune, vert?
I'm chuffed to bits that you like it & I think it looks spectacular on you!
Lot's of love,

Dear Helga, you look wonderful with Jem's hairpiece and I love the colour and print of that dress.

I read the post in a French accent. Wafer thin always makes me laugh in French. The eclairs and vino sound perfect xx

Miss Claire said...

Ahh Helga, you make me giggle!!! I can tell you have perhaps already guzzled some vino?? Jems hair piece is gorgeous on you!! What a talented lass!

Great hair decoration and, indeed, outfit! Thanks for the picture of the handbag lining, some of my vintage buys have had me wondering 'what was going on in there?'xxx Comtesse xxx

Dear Nettie!
Thanks for your wonderful blog! Every time I have a look at it, I get a portion of happiness and colour from you, which is great, particularly at this cold and dark time of the year for us.
