I've been in another world of late.
Through the looking glass.
In my Victorian night gown...
Yeah. I really do wear this around the house. I've got quite the collection growing. I buy a lot at thrift stores. Old fashioned things. Pretty lacy things. Things that they just don't make like they used to. Perhaps one of these days I will have to share the vintage nightie collection I've amassed.
Thrifting is one of the finer things in life don't you think?
This week I picked up some new nighties, some new curtains, some tins to store my makeup in and a religious statue.
These are REALLY old fashioned looking, don't you think? I kind of love them though. The top bit is the only new part. $2.99 per valance.
I am not a religious type, but Mother Mary is so Goddess-like. I really think the Mother icon is something so sacred, so I appreciate Mary as a representation of that. She now sits on top of my t.v.! HAHA!
My sense of decor has really only gotten curiouser and curiouser. I keep acquiring odd things. Or building them.
Like this new little lady.
She told me her name was Orlagh, and she got beheaded by her brother Brian's enemies.
She's got a special request of all you creative folk. Since her own head was lost many years ago, she needs a new one. She's quite open to any idea. Any peculiar, curious little suggestion. What sort of thing should she use as her head?
And in the non-bizarre arena, I got a new fireplace! The old one was just too big, and let's face it, looked better in the living room.
Not that I am in need of any heat. The temperatures have skyrocketed. Next week it's supposed to be in the high 60s, low 70s. Which after a winter of -10 weather, is welcomed as can be.
Look it's leaving! When I went through the woods for my antlers last week, it was up to my hips -_- <- I love that face haha. Anyhow, it's now only up to my ankles in the forest. In the well trodden places there's no snow at all!
At night I am enjoying sitting and listening to soft music with my woodland chandelier lit up and the breezes flowing through the window. So peaceful. Link to make one for yourself is here on Vanessa's blog.
So that's what's new here. Peace. Sweet things. Loveliness and strangeness.
Happy day loves,
