I'm going through a bit of an experimental phase at the moment and there are a couple of things that I keep playing with.  Still not 100% sure if they're working for me but thought you might enjoy the attempts :-)

Pattern Mixing

My first attempt was fairly mild, keeping the colours the same and working with one very subtle pattern.  I've gone a step further this time!  Different colours!  Obvious patterns! And no, OK, I haven't accesorized and yes, I did actually wear my trainers.  Oh come on, I'm pregnant and had miles to walk to the shops ;-))) 

But, with some nice shoes and jewellry, I think it could be really nice!




Silk headscarves, while very often beautiful, don't stay in my hair without gallons of product.  So, I put on my cotton, tie-died scarf that I bought in Japan yeeeeaaaaarrrs ago.  Stayed in all day.  I have one in purple too. 


What do you think?  Tell me about your current experiments!!

Project re-style 2: stamps (part 2)

My new morning project (read here): rejects from a stamp collection and frames from a charity shop.  The framing proved MUCH more difficult than I thought, so I cheated and split the project into 2 phases. 


I blew up (photocopied, people, photocopied) my collection of edible and poisionous mushroom stamps from the DDR (1980 - aren't they cool???), and made an amateur attempt at paper cutting them out:



That act was inspired by this book.  Phenomenal. Have a look at Hino Aoyama or Peter Callesen, and watch my attempts melt into insignificance :-)


Ta ra, what do you think?

Getting Bigger...

... or did my t-shirt shrink in the wash?  I seriously asked myself that this morning.  Well, it's one or the other. 

I'm in a bit of a disorganized rush today and it's not because I have too much to do.  Not to worry, my fuzzy hairdo (photo 2) is perfectly reflecting my state of mind so everything's matching.

I know what you're thinking though.  My tights are too dark.  They're the only Mummy tights I have (you know the ones with the ginormous bellies) and it's fe-reeezing (11°C!!!). Once again, dear readers, another little luxury getting in the way of a tremendous blog shot (read here).




I hope you like my brooch, bag and red shoes as much as I do... and that you're having a clear-minded, focussed kind of a day :-)

Project re-style 2: stamps (part 1)

My new morning project (read here): rejects from a stamp collection and frames from a charity shop.  The framing is proving a little more difficult than I thought, so am (cheating) splitting this up into 2 phases.  What do you think so far?

I've also got some random getting dressed moments from this week:




I think I look tired; but I suppose that's what pregnancy does to you.
Have a fab weekend everyone.
