Although my sewing/dressing room, aka The Boudoir, isn't fully finished, I thought I might show you a few glimpses...
Above is most of my shoes...the draws hold boots, the boxes hold quite a few pairs of shoes...recently colour co-ordinated as much as possible!
Aside from those strewn in front, there are a few boots under the clothes as well...I do love my footwear!
And as I buy 99% of it secondhand, I can afford to have heaps of shoes!
I just need better storage for them, which will happen one of these days!
Left are two newish frocks, the 80's blue one was from Fossil Vintage in Melbourne and the 50's orange patio frock (with ric rac!) is from Small Earth Vintage. Both need teeny adjustments before wearing...
These drawers, which are screaming for a decorative overhaul, hold my tights...all except the bottom two...there are two more boxes of shoes, some of my basket collection, my scarves and on the right is my laundry bag, which I got in Oaxaca!
I had been rummaging in these 60's formica draws looking for a suitable hat, but decided on a flower from the open case, which holds all my hair decorations!
The majority of my coats are here, the cape on the left was made by my sisters mother-in-law in the 70's/80's ((I've just added that fur collar, and am yet to wear it), and stretchy belts are in that splendid rubbish tin!
The basket holds a few odd things, like my hairdryer....
A messy corner of slips, some bags, hats.
On the chair, centre, are garments for alteration and some fabric for future projects.
Ha, that's a picture of Richard from Rammstein under my sewing machine.
I quite fancy him, he has a really nice arse!
There is to be another shelf added here, and both will need painting.
(this used to be where our chimney was, before the earthquakes!)
The baskets hold soft bags.
A wall of frocks!
More bags, my jewellery nook, left, and a wee black velvet 30's cape is hanging on the hot water cylinder cupboard knob.
I've had that cape since 1987; I bought it in Sydney when I was heavily into Goth!
I am feeling much, much better thank you!
Due in part to your well wishes....and to passing it on to my poor G!
