I'm in the mood for dancin', romancin'.....ooo, I'm giving it all tonight



Spring makes me as bouncy as a new born lamb. 
And just as scatty, no doubt!
It's so lovely to open up all the windows and let the fresh air in.
The house and the mind!

Ha ha, the feet shots are the best. I'm feeling the same enthusiasm for our approaching autumn. Season changes can be most invigorating x

Roll on Spring and gin for you and tequila and lime for me and frocks and colour. I'm obsessing about sewing at the moment but I'm not that good at it. Oh and my twin girls look over your blog and told me the other day I almost looked as good as the pretty lady on the computer( that's YOU!) and they also said that they wished you were their aunty! Aunty Helga! Nice! Happy to send the rascals over for a holiday.

Carol said...

Happy Spring!!! We're getting into Autumn here - it is kinda funny though when you were talking about your "Winter" - tee hee!

But you're right - there is nothing better than opening up windows and breathing in the beautiful fresh air into your home and yourself!

(I love the little decoration on the bottom of your lovely dress!)

You're so talented-I was admiring the trim detail on the frock before I knew you made it, and was thinking, "They just don't make things with that sort of attention anymore!"

Okay, I laughed pretty hard at the purse between your legs photo. Maybe that can be a future caption contest for the blog.

Beth Waltz said...

That intense blue suits you, your hair and your attitude! And, aha, a Helgaesque bow on the boldly striped frock (to keep it ladylike) and pom-poms on the toes to call attention to your legs (in case the tights don't do the job). You are indeed a Pretty Lady!

Sheila said...

Those shoes are fabulous! I love the pom-poms! Happy to hear spring is on the way!

Connie said...

G & T season. Bring it on. You are definitely putting the Sprung in Spring. Gorgeous Dress. Gorgeous You!

Melanie said...

I'm so glad it's spring somewhere in the world, I mean Gin and Tonic Season. Hee. I love the shot of your handbag bookended by your legs. Thanks for this whack of colour!

missfairchildscharmschool said...

I can always count on you to be ray of sunshine. So many beautiful colours on a beautiful gal. Cheers me up.

Sue said...

I can imagine you bouncing about! Is that before the gin or after? Totally love your outfit and your posing, you are the best Helga! At everything!!!

beate grigutsch said...

haha - great pics!
love the dress, so summery. a bit strange to see all the spring-y action at yours - here we are def heading into autumn.....
xxxxx

Fiona said...

Fabularse frockage, you are so clever and I lurve the fabric. Can't imagine you need a G&T to be in the mood for dancin' and if autumn is the season for them I'm curious to know what you drink in the other three. Blimey, what a rather amazing cactus that is... just behind your left ear.

mondoagogo said...

You look like a deckchair! A very splendid deckchair with dazzling legs and fabulous shoes :D

Curtise said...

Opening up the windows, the mind, and the legs, darling - everywhere is getting a healthy gust of fresh air this Spring then! Woo hoo, looking fabulously frisky, love the frock, like a 1950s daisy-trimmed deck chair (which is A Good Thing, in case you're wondering), and of course your wondrous legs are things of beauty.
G&T? Yes please, make mine a double! Love yooooou! xxxx

LandGirl1980 said...

ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAWAAAAR indeed! I effing love that photo of you!!!

PinkCheetahVintage said...

Really cute pics! Love the cardi with that dress!

Krista Gassib said...

Now I wanna roll on the grass with you:). This dress you made is crazy good and bold with color, it's grand just like you dammit! I think I'd love it if we lived close by each other, I could have you over for craft and Cosmo night and you could have me over to teach me to cook Thai and throw down gin and tonics and then of course we dance.
Love you gorgeous girlxxxxxxxxxxxxxxoooooo

Vix said...

The only good thing about the departure of Summer here means I get to see you flouncing around with bare legs clutching a cocktail, warms my cockles, it does.
Loving the me-made frock and the legs akimbo shot. Those shoes were a right old find.
Love you! xxxxxx

diaryofapennypincher said...

That electric blue looks fantastic on you! How talented you are to make the dress too, and yes, the legs and handbag shot needs it's own caption comp!

Autumn said...

Absolutely scrumptious, darling.

Shawna McComber said...

The fresh air of spring is so lovely! I love that too, when you can open the windows and let in all that fresh air.

I love your frock and the RAWR pose! The colours and stripes are very fresh just like spring.
xoxo

freckleface said...

Look at you, you gorgeous filly. How very marvellous indeed. I love it when you ROWRRRR! Spring has obviously made you feel rather frisky darling! Pompom shoes and legs akimbo. Long may it continue I say. Now, I've probably said it before, but since I'm probably only inches away from early onset you'll have to forgive me: that wonderful me-made dress takes me back to early childhood. I definitely had something made out of that fabric, and every time I see it I am transported back. So does this mean the official photographer is back? These definitely look like A team material. Xxxxxxxxxx

peaches mcginty said...

Yes! a good frolic in the grass in fabulous attire is a must in spring, especially when you are as magnificent! which you most definitely are! apparently it's Autumn here, it's not! I'm uncomfortably moist hahaha! x x x

ArgentGal said...

ROWRRRRRRRR indeed! Great outfit. So bright and cheerful. Personally, I'm looking forward to the arrival of fall here. I like the warm and cozy.

Ivy Black said...

HA! I love it when you get springy! Anything can happen. Frolicking, rollicking, colours, legs shoes and general magnificence. Fecking love it.
xxxxxxx

colormebrazen said...

I would wear the ever-loving &(*$% out of that frock. It might be my favorite of yours to date - so damn circusy! And we all know how I feel about circusy.

Forest City Fashionista said...

Your "ROWWWRRRR" shot just gave me the most delightful laugh!! Yes, it is obviously spring over there - your sassy stripes say it is so. We are charging full speed ahead into fall, sigh.

Catherine said...

loverly dress you made! ad all that blue..oooh just like the spring sky!

Trees said...

I'm in love with that candy striped frock!!
