OK, sorry not to have posted last week but I was not at home. Traveled over to Edinburgh to see Mum as she was a bit poorly. Also the last couple of weeks have been a bit crazy with some major changes going on and no internet! As a consequence I have done no sewing (again). This is a bit of a recurring theme on this blog but yesterday one of the massive changes was that I finally got the studio back to myself. Today I have been hard at it sorting things out, shifting furniture and generally changing things round so that I can finally have a space to work in that is clean, (reasonably) clutter-free and my own again. It feels great.
I have tons of vintage notions.
So with nothing hot from my machine to show you I am kind of at a loss what to post. I was going to write about the recent interesting "Wardrobe Architect" series on the Coletterie blog but although I was pinning like mad on my Pinterest Board which you can see here, I still don't have a clue what to sew or wear. Wardrobe Architect is a great series, it has really made me think about what I like and my personal style. The big problem, no pun intended, is that all the styles I like are for skinny boho 70's groupies and vintage glamour pusses and I am none of the above. So what do you do when your person can't match up to your personal style? I need to regroup I think.
So with nothing to show you I will leave you of some pics I took at the Necropolis in Glasgow.
In a Julia Margaret Cameron Stylee! (Hurrah for Photoshop)
I used to work in the hospital close by and go there for a wander at lunchtimes.
It is a beautiful Victorian cemetery, opened in 1833, and filled with loads of statues and forgotten graves designed by the likes of Alexander "Greek" Thompson and Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
Cheer up love. Bah, and I thought "I" was a bit of a Goth!
If you are ever in Glasgow it is well worth a visit and you can get stunning views across the city from up on the hill where the Necropolis stands. I have a bit of a thing for graveyards (and Photoshop, can't you tell). They are always so peaceful. Great places to take a book and real havens for wildlife. You sometimes used to get deer in the Necropolis and loads of beautiful bunnies.
Anyway, have a great week people. Happy June!
