A little bit of light is a good thing

Training is over and I'm pooped (tired), I may not know what is going on exactly but I sound like I do, score!


I fear my posing phase is getting out of hand
I'm on my own taking selfies trying to get sun rays on my face, really?
 Colour was needed yesterday, I seemed to have zoned into Black for a little to long

Today looks like this
I think it looks like this a lot
grey, miserable and drizzly rain


My house is looking way too dark at the moment, so after googling 'How to create light in a dark space'
I realised I wasn't going to invest in wall to ceiling windows, re-decorate or put spotlights everywhere
so I did this
I put glass stuff where there was light
 and I put a lamp on


and I found (in my towel pile) my vintage elbow length gloves 
I got these years ago at a vintage fair
a vendor was selling a showgirl feather head-dress and a diamante bra
I floated over and asked him how much
he told me it wouldn't fit and that was that
bugger
I'm still on the lookout though, I will wear the head-dress and the bra as tassles


Glove modelling is notoriously difficult
I had to have a lie down after this exhausting physical activity


Cookie regally resting
must stop using alliteration

It's the weekend, which means drinks tonight and knitting
I'm so right now!!!

If you ever watched Will and Grace
here's Jack and Karen
possibly one of the greatest double acts ever



if that doesn't work

and Xanadu Olivia Newton John and ELO




and if that doesn't work
P.S. thank you to Louise at Polka Dots and Freckle Spots for the tech advice x x
It's the weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!
have a glorious one
 see you all soon

  1. You are a gorgeous glove model. I'm impressed that you actually own opera gloves. Stupid vendor. Bah! I once asked the price of a painting and was told by the vendor that I couldn't afford it. The nerve! How does he know that I'm not an eccentric heiress that likes to dress down so as not to attract gold diggers? I actually couldn't afford it but that's not the point. And...is Karen the best role model or what???? Love every little bit of you!

  2. What a beautiful face you have my dear and those glasses more than suit it, just gorgeous! Give me color on dull day, heck everyday and what a cool idea with the glass pieces in the window. My blue therapy light is a must have in winter. I sat in during a taping of Will and Grace when it was still on the air, it was a blast, we got special vip treatment:)

  6. Hope you gave the vendor a lovely smile and a one finger salute for being rude, no need is there, to be rude that is, there is always a need to salute rude people!! You are very talented at glove modelling reminded me of Mad Donna singing Vogue!! Enjoy your weekend and don't drink while you knit or you may well drop a stitch or three!!

  7. Looking fabulous! Loving the blue floral dress. There's something so ladylike about long gloves- I want some. I hope you told that vendor where to shove it for being so rude! And, you're welcome for the tech advice. Glad it helped! xx

    1. Thanks Louise, the tech advice was excellent as I am an tech idiot! definitely get some long gloves, very fancy they are! I walked away from the vendor, I was more annoyed I didn't get to try the head dress on! x x

  8. Oh thanks for a little blast of Jack and Karen, they were brilliant. I dance like Karen after a few drinks. Just so you know...
    God, the greyness has been crappy, hasn't it? Your pretty frock with the lace panel top layered over it is just the ticket to brighten things up. And your cool posing face is fabulous!
    Gorgeous Gloves of Glory! I like a little 'lliteration too. You've modelled them to perfection, most elegant. Bloody cheeky seller, you would look wonderful as a showgirl.
    Cutie pie Cookie, AND Xanadu? You spoil us! Hope the drunk knitting was a success! xxxxx
