Byron's portrait at Hughenden Manor
I've been making things too. Well, making is a bit of an exaggeration. Adjusting is more apt.
Morrissey earrings! bit clumsy but still fun
Brooch made last week and worn to Hyper Japan on Saturday
Look away Vix and Helga! I bought this teddy bear at the Salvation Army Christmas bazaar, but as you can see, he didn't have any eyes, those brown bits might be his eyes, but anyway, he looks a lot better with these buttons
Last night after the earrings, crucifix and bear, I couldn't stop and finally adjusted this skirt
probably needs hemming, I may or may not be bothered to do that
Last week I got a parcel of love from Vix
this utterly divine vintage cotton slip has been repaired and adjusted over and over. It's a proper Frankendress (thanks to The Folly Bird for that one) and it's too small. I'm fine with getting Vix to adjust it for me as it's too small on the bust but fits perfectly everywhere else.

Beautiful Hindu card
Fab polka dot shorts and houndstooth maxi!
80s slip, worn under my lacey dress on Saturday
Thanks Vix, you're a star!
My friend Lucy dropped round today, she'd text me and asked if I wanted some green mary janes. Obviously I text back instantly saying YESSSS!
She also kindly gave me
This fantastic vintage neckercheif
Reading and watching material - I'm a big fan of Daphne DuMaurier
ooh I've been doing some conservation work at Hughenden Manor (only voluntary, sadly)
Here's a statue I cleaned
It's getting very dark and atmospheric in the manor, often it's difficult to see objects very well by 2:30 in the afternoon (we keep lights low for conservation and authenticity purposes).
I'll be back later on this week! Hopefully with some outfit posts!
