yes, i took a quick peek into the abyss, i couldn’t resist before digging into the nightshift. you know how blogging makes me all happy and stuff. well, i clicked on a random day and just two links pulled onto just the ride i needed to recharge. this universe never disappointsl!
so this just a non sequitur from a free fall. hope you have fun where ever you’re headed!
it’s funny how this trail of breadcrumbs was all about flappers.
anyway, duty calls. i’m starting to see the light, sort of. the details never seem to end, i can’t wait to say, fini!
ok enough talk, work!
what can i say? it would be a bleak world if it weren’t for the beauty of blogland. of course real life lovely too, but there’s something about being just a click away from the most creative and inspiring people that boggles the mind! par example, just looking thru your comments from the last post led me to all amazing these sites. it’s like a mosaic, if i did the same thing every single day, i’d have gorgeous montages of ideas and images that just never cease to amaze!
unfortunately as i was saving it all yesterday, my computer froze and i had to shut down without having saved all the links. soooooo you know me, a bit of a sorry @$$ who’s not sure of all the links and photos and i don’t have the time to go thru them all again! if you’d be so kind as to let me know which unmarked image is yours i’ll be glad to sync and link it!
well, i can’t stay and play very long so i’m just going to post the images and links and hope you find these fascinating as i did. have a fabulous jour!
happy monday everyone ~ i hope you’re winding down a little and doing just what you want!
i wanted to introduce those of you who don’t know her to one of my readers, amy friend. she sent me a link to her work today and i just fell in love. in this series she shoots her grandmother’s old nightgowns. if you’re like me, you’re a sucker for those old beauties. i was mesmerized by the way she brings them back to life. they’re almost like sea creatures.
below are some of her interior shots. amazing what good light and french doors can do…oh and the right photographer!
well, i confess, i just wanted to stop in and say hey and feel creative even just for a minute. i’m actually working on the tedious technical grooming of all my email contacts combined with the creation of a special newsletter that needs to get done pronto. it’s a big one and i want to finish it and get it sent (hopefully to you guys), which by the by, if i don’t have your email address and you want to get the news, email me at email@example.com or leave a comment and mention it, i can get it from there.
ps if you do host a giveaway, i’ll put it in the newsletter so let me know!
ok back to it! have a fab nuit!
pss it’s a couple days later, amy is such a doll and we added these to the boutique, take a look if you get a chance:
hi everyone! i hope you’re having a splendid afternoon! i’ve been watching taped tcm films while i’m working, can you tell? two from the 30s and the flapper fashions are to die for! not sure about the story line, i’m barely paying attention but it’s set in budapest and a she’s queen for a day who gets to be wild and free!
imdb.com/one heavenly night (1931)
i’m home tonight working on a newsletter, logo and pr stuff for the launch…i can’t believe how much work has gone into ‘it’ but the tunnel is definitely lit and i’ll be blabbing about it soon. in fact if anyone wants to host a giveaway on their site, let me know, i need all the help i can get. and i promise to stop being annoyingly clandestine as soon as i can!
so since i’m home alone i can indulge in the ridiculous and take stills with my new iphone! (the most fabulous indulgence ever)! i thought i’d share a scene from the movie that just ended, born to dance (1936). this film was beyond surreal in that it had songs like ‘you’d be so easy to love’ and ‘i’ve got you under my skin’, but also a couple of buddy epsen numbers that border on disturbing! still, i can’t turn off an old film if i haven’t seen it (or even if i have), and it was worth it. as you can see, the fabulous broadway star has a dream apartment. but you really don’t know how it’s laid out till she takes this enormous glass teardrop and lobs it into the mirror surrounding the mantle!
it was actually aimed at him
mmmm mmmm mmm, i do love the 30s sets! even those built to be destroyed!
anyway i just wanted to say hi and thank you for checking in. i really appreciate your friendship and love knowing you’re there for me. me too you!
have a great sat nuit!
happy friday everyone~
it’s only 9:30 and i don’t have to go anywhere or do anything. what a pleasure! tonight i’m going to do a little surfing and enjoy myself. hope you’re doing the same. have a great weekend, whatever you’re up to!
i’ve always loved that song, i’m sure you do too, it’s part of our cultural psyche or something. turns out it’s also a ginger rogers movie. amazon.com/Ginger-Rogers
(it was ginger rogers month on tcm and i recorded a ton of stuff i’ve never seen). ginger has to be one of my all time faves as a quadruple threat as far as someone who can sing, dance, play the drama queen or even better, comedic roles. plus she’s just utterly timeless in her gorgeousness and in terms of pure style! i took the shot below with my phone’s camera just to remember one of the fabulous sets. it’s a silly movie but everything from the clothes and hair and shots of grand old ny really get me!
i’ve got the place all to myself for the next 10 days so first it’s time to chill with my tcm! have a great saturday night!
hey everyone! thank you so much for the birthday wishes yesterday, it was all that and even more, especially with you in it :)
today i’m playing catch up and just popping in for a sec to recalibrate. i stumbled across this incredible site just now and thought it was too good not to pass along to those who have the time and inclination to get lost (like i did)!
now back to my deadline that never seems to end!
