I've been dye happy this week!
I 've been dying a bunch of old clothes. Mostly green, because that's the colour I already had.
Pashmina scarf, two petticoats, bloomers and another petticoat
Best of all
This previously "flesh tone" bra is now a vivid green with ribbon roses added by me. Now it's totally amazing and surprisingly supportive
I also picked up this old hair comb with a rose missing... so I added a Virgin Mary.
I'm going to make some more. Edie pointed out that it looks quite a lot like a collection by D&G
This Saturday Mike and I went to London... I got my hair cut. More on that tomorrow. I took photos and then accidentally deleted them!
The main reason for our visit was the latest exhibition at The Wellcome Collection called
I'd been dying (ha!!) to go for ages and it was worth the wait, there were some truly fascinating pieces there
Not everything was as macabre as it looked. This wonderful sculpture from Japan had a positive message about reincarnation and the continuation of life. The snake looks gentle and benign. Read more here
Sunday I scanned a few more postcards including those I showed you a brief glance of. The full collection can be found at my tumblr blog My Darling Little Sunbeam
Here's a few of the weird, wonderful, beautiful and boring I found recently
Transvestite Clown and friend
embossed new year 1907 postcard
Tyrol singers (For Mary Lou and Freckleface!)
Plucking babyhead flowers
Just a quick look at a couple of beauty discoveries I made... neither cheap but well worth it
D R Harris is a wonderful chemist in London which still has a traditional interior. I love their own brand of skincare and perfume and their Milk Of Cucumbers and Roses is truly divine. I've also got the face wash.
I love these kinds of Chemists, you never know what old fashioned but forgotten gems of the beauty world you might find.
The nail polish is from Limited Collection at M&S, it cost £3.50 and they have a great selection of colours.
OK, I'll be back tomorrow with another tribute post! Not telling who yet. Actually you probably won't know who it is - again!
