The Adventures Of Atomic Mildred

 
Atomic Mildred is out bird watching
 
 
 
Atomic Mildred loves spotting birds, though she likes spotting naked men more.
 
 
Staring wistfully into the apple blossom, dreaming of warmer weather, singing "Coucou to herself"
 
 
 
 
Atomic Mildred is wearing
Felt wool cape - Daisy Boutique
Jumper -  Primark
80s Mustard Maxi Skirt from French Connection - Charity shop
Socks - Primark
Boots - Ebay
 
 In Atomic Mildred's Bag:
60s gloves - charity shop
Opera glasses - Charity shop
Drs Bag - Church fayre
 
Atomic Mildred doesn't leave home without "The Home Book" 1937
edited by the esteemed Mrs D D Cottington-Taylor (Director of Good Housekeeping Institute, Certificate Household and Social Science, Kings College London, First Class Diplomas in Cookery, High Class Cookery, Laundrywork and Housewifery
 
Ideal for bug hunting in the garden is utterly adorable "The Little Naturalist In The Garden" by The Rev. Theodore Wood.
 
This week I was very lucky to receive a parcel from the beautiful Curtise
Wonderful Cartes Visites, angelic pins, mad 50s/60s brooch, 1920s saucy postcard, naughty Jack Russell. And.... The most amazing tack-a-rama Virgin and Child clock with flashing LED.
 
Isn't she fabulous?
 
This week in the chazzas, I bought
Pressed flower brooch £1.95, wonky pansy cross stitch 95p, kinky white lace topped stockings 95p, large sample of Roger et Gallet's Eau De Cologne 50p and insect fabric 95p
 
I also snapped up this large sample of Yardley's April Violet in a local independent chemist. This perfume is now 100 years old and smells of Parma Violet sweets!
 
Atomic Mildred will be back on Friday for a pre holiday mood board!

Well, I can only say that Atomic Mildred now is my favourite character, I love her more than a Wes Anderson's creature, is the heroin of a book I want to read and the figure of a painting I want to hang on my walls. You ...Mildred looks gorgeous in mermaid hair and mustard skirt, the suitcase is full of marvellous objects and books and all your finds and Curtise's presents are just perfect for this wonderful story.
I want to come for a bug hunt in your garden!
Love xxxxxxxxxx

Atomic Mildred also likes to be groped by frisky trollops, I heard!!!
Fecking LOVE your hair, and your outfit and accessories are SUBLIME!!!! SQUEEEEEE! Atomic Mildred is invited for drinkies.......but be careful, I may steal some of her delightful goodies! (In more ways than one!)
My Mama used to love April Violets! Gives me a headache, though, dammit. Most perfumes do.
The Mary clock is to DIE for fabularse! Yay, Curtise!

I'm loving Atomic Mildred's hair. And her name. And I want something mustard! I said that about someone's mustard cardy the other day.

Great scores. And violets.

I love Atomic Mildred! And your blog post.

1.Absolutely LOVE the hair!! Atomic indeed.

2. I'm intrigued by the Home Book - perhaps Mildred want to share some wisdom from it?

3. What super presents from Curtise! Lucky lady. I love vintage portrait photographs (and collect them).

4. Great charity shop finds, as usual. I wish we could charity shop together, so you can help me find treasures.

Atomic Mildred....I can't wait to hear what what naughtiness you get up to next!

Your hair is a gorgeous color, you should always stand next to apple blossoms....stunning!

freckleface said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Atomic Mildred is beautiful! I wonder if she spotted any naked men. I bet Atomic Mildred never tells. But her big brown eyes speak volumes. That blue hair is an even more fantastic adventure than I was anticipating. I totally love it. It even beats the peach hair.

I have Devon Violets and Penhaligons Violetta perfume. Anything violet flavoured is good in my book. xxxxxxx

Oh Mildred, you are indeed Atomic!
Did she spot any tits while bird watching with her opera glasses? Feel free to insert (ahem) your own cock joke here - I couldn't possibly, I am far too ladylike...
Clare - the Hair! The turquoise hair is fabulous! The photos of you by the apple blossom looking doe-eyed and secretly lust-filled, scanning the horizon for naked men, are truly beautiful. Atomic Mildred's cape and the mustardy goodness of the skirt are wonderful. And her reading material is very interesting, I am happy to know Mrs D D Cottington-Taylor is suitably qualified to offer advice on The Home.
Glad you like the tack-o-rama clock et al! Nice chazza finds too, wonky pansies and perfume are excellent.
I hope Atomic Mildred will be a regular guest on your blog, Clare, she is quite the character! xxxxxxx

Great post - I just love how you have detailed your outfit and the contents of your amazing bag. What a fab gift parcel from Curtise - the Madonna clock with LED is the sort of thing I love too. Your hair is gorgeous, the colour really suits you!!

Melanie said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I am apoplectic over your nuclear-blue hair. Atomic Mildred needs her own adventure series. Wait, didn't they make a movie about her called Naked-man Spotting? I think she had an addiction to, oh yes, now I remember, to April Violet.
I really, really like the blue hair and Atomic Mildred, especially with those SHOES! Naughty. And there's that fabulous Dr's bag. Curtise is a dream.
I can't wait to see more adventures from Atomic Mildred!!

Vintage Bird Girl said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Your hair your hair your hair!!!!!!! I LURVE it! Looks amazing on you. Loving the cape action too, & of course the sight of little brown boots makes me happy! Xx

Move over George and Mildred, Atomic Mildred's my new hero!
I frickin' love your hair, you look magnificent. So beautiful. The outfit and bag are sublime and I'm glad those binoculars came in handy. Did you spot any naked men?
Curtise's parcel is just fantastic and you didn't do half bad yourself, either.
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

OUTSTANDING.
Is there an I-Spy book of Nakey Men?

Vintage Coconut said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Hello pretty Mildred!
Love that bag of yours, why didn't you show us the naked men? *lol* Saving for another blog post I presume??? ;)
Your hair is WONDROUS

I use Yardley lavender powder I picked it up at WINNERS because it came in a vintage looking tin.

Forest City Fashionista said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Atomic Mildred has the MOST FABULOUS hair!! The colour is absolutely divoon (to borrow one of those Aussies' words)on you (keep it, keep it!). Mildred should have her own little TV spot in which she talks about what birds she's spotted, and spouts a bit of advice from the Home Book.

Curtise does send the most wonderful parcels of joy, doesn't she?

Lucys Lounge said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Beautiful turquoise hair Clare, I was looking at a TopShop ad/film thing on the internet the other day, for festival style, and thinking they've just took all the adventure and romance out of that whole idea by making it just trendy, I much prefer the quirkiness and originality of this post, still beautiful and stylish but not being just one big cliche that sucks the interesting out of everything. xx

BellaBean Vintage said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I'm still in a state of delirium over your utterly incredible turquoise hair!!!! It's YOU, YOU, YOU!!!!!! It makes your eyes look absolutely HUGE and beautiful. I had a lovely listen to Josette and Django while having a perve at your beautiful op shop finds and the parcel of exquisite joy from Curtise - those brooches! The clock! GAH!!!! Amazing!! Now I'm in the mood for a spot of bird-watching and cherry blossoms. Oh the joy of this post! xoxoxoxoxo
