I've got the 21st century breathing down my neck



O, hello Spring!
Actually, these pix are a little old....ah, the glory of being able to take one's coat off, albeit briefly....




I'm wearing:
Frock-made it myself using a splendid curtain from lovely Sue
Cardi-opshopped
Belt-80's, madness, opshopped
Hat-60's, Trade Me
Tights-retail
Shoes-Trade Me
Earrings-darling Edie
Necklace-60's heaven, sweetheart Tamera
Sunglasses-Catch a Thief
Handbag-a Rex, from G
Coat-Camberwell Markets




I am dreaming of barbeques, picnics, cats frolicking, lying about in the grass (on something, as I am allergic) with a good book and a bottle of wine....
Some leaves on the trees would also be lovely!


O, look!
A few bonus pix from our recording session (Flange) yesterday!
'Twas another gloriarse Spring day, seemed a shame to spend it indoors....couldn't be helped!

I'm trying to figure out if I can think of anyone who uses color as brilliantly as you!! Spring?!! I'm so myopic that I forget there's other weather in the world!!

I know I rarely stop by but I'm always glad when I do. XXOO

Val Sparkle said...

Well, you look like a summer's day in that first outfit! Lovely print for the dress, and so many bright colors.

That first hint of spring is always so magical and optimistic. Here I'm looking forward to cooler weather and an easing of hot flashes!

CityScape Skybaby said...

There's always such a beautiful light in your photos Helga, you never seem to have those dull grey skies over there. I love how the sun is making your red hair and all the colours in your outfit glow. We've had most of our lounging about on the grass and sand days here I think, but I'm not ready for autumn yet. Love seeing you being a rock star in the studio too! xx
