Thanks Angie!

I was on Luck Pony today and saw this stand at the Design Indaba. I called Graeme up and placed orders for "coming back home presents", which is a firm tradition in this house.
Happy to say, a lot of those items are now mine. Thanks Angie-face!

Party dress time

I went digging through charity shops today to find something special & unique for my special friend Annette for her special birthday.
I got something really different and old and pretty and practical. She is going to love it. Then I saw this perfect little vintage tennis dress and it is mine.
It cost R40, it's old, it smells like moth balls, but I love it more than anything else in my wardrobe right now.
It also makes my legs look pretty damn hot. Just saying. It's a good thing I shaved this morning cause now I have to go get ready for her party, in my tennis/party dress.

Oh yes.

You! (yes, you).. get your ass here and dance with me. Right now.

Break the lock if it don't fit.

I am I am I am.

"I took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart. I am. I am. I am."

"Is there no way out of the mind?"

"If neurotic is wanting two mutually exclusive things at one and the same time, then I'm neurotic as hell. I'll be flying back and forth between one mutually exclusive thing and another for the rest of my days."

♥ Theodore

Ok so this is the best illustrator alive. Theo. He also happens to be a really awesome guy. So awesome that I proposed marriage to him a few years ago. No really. I did. He turned me down, but I still think I have a chance. Probably not though.

Here is some of his work non the less.

I can Pin-Up.

My darling Claire sent me a little package. It contained very sexy seamed hosiery (that I think her mom got from the UK) I put them on and put on my black stilettos and felt like a real Pin-Up girl. Bettie Page... eat your socks (or your stockings)

I want your house.

Some images from "love made me do it"

Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman

He offered an oft-quoted response when asked in Playboy magazine about the temptations of other women: "I have steak at home. Why go out for hamburger?"

(they were married 50 years)
