Here's my new hair all pinked up. I'm not sure, I wish I could be more enthusiastic. I've a suspicion it looks a bit like a wig. What do you think?
ooh and I finally added this fur collar to my mint green 60s crimpeline Eastex coat. Much better!

Oh dear, I'm ok but feeling a little flat, I haven't got any art done, but I have made over the office (ex 50s semi box room) and I did frame this little scrap. Though I accidentally glued the glass on the wrong side of the frame! I couldn't get it off again - here it is - lifesize
I've recently discovered a strange artist called Joseph Cornell, luckily Edie Pop and Ivy Black are both fans too.

Most recently the thing in my life I've been enjoying the most is my time at Hughenden Manor
It was the home of Victorian Prime Minister and our only PM with a direct Jewish background - Benjamin Disraeli. oh and his enigmatic wife Mary Anne.
Dizzy wasn't just a normal politician, he was a dandy, an acclaimed novel writer, ladies man, favourite of Queen Victorian and political reformer.
His wife Mary Anne was 12 years older and a wealthy widow. Disraeli pretty much married her for her money but unlike many Victorian melodramas the two had a very happy and loving marriage.

Back to clothes etc. I found this lovely boxy 90s M&S handbag for £3.99
I love the design, the fake crocodile material and those little spherical metal feet expensive bags have

Here's something that's definitely 90s
and it's been stuck in my head for ages
