The Pretty Things Are Going to Hell

By Desiree68 @pullyoursocksup
No don't look at the hair, I had no idea the wind had blown the bejesus out of it.
But I must say it was a welcome cool breeze, so I wore the delicious 1970s nylon frock Mrs D of Hello the Mushroom sent me last week.
A perfect fit.
And gosh, a bit of tan-action going on there with all the swimming we've been doing this summer.
The Pretty Things are Going to Hell Summertime also means mosquitoes come a'flocking and I end up a'scratching, resulting in delightful join-the-dots scabs and scars.
Hmmmmm.

The Pretty Things are Going to Hell Frock - gifted by Mrs D of Hello the Mushroom Crochet bangle - art gallery bargain Anklets - gifted by reader, Tra-la-la All other jewelry - thrifted Bag - craft market VW Melissa wedges - Melissa sale Well that was a few days ago.
Today I found this gorgeous print in the Salvos for $10, it's called The Ice Cream Vendor, by Huldah Cherry Jeffe (1901-2001).
I did a wee search on Huldah and many of her beautiful paintings depict exquisite red-cheeked Parisian lassies with huge sparkly eyes and bright red lips.
So charming.
The Pretty Things are Going to Hell I even love the crumbling frame.
I have a "thing" for imperfections, they convey warmth and a life well-lived.
The Pretty Things are Going to Hell The latest treasure joined my wall of portraits of women.
I've been collecting pictures of interesting female faces for about a decade now, I ran out of wall space long ago, yet I can't give it up.
I'm not interested in landscapes.
I love faces or paintings of furnished rooms: evidence of humanity.

I bought the Vogue single from Nelly of Vintage Wishes.

I picked up both the apron and gingham tablecloth for a couple of bucks from Vinnies.

Not a scrap.
Only time to slide on this glorious 1960s slip I snapped up for a song from The Slipperie's Boxing Day sale.
It has embroidered flowers on the bodice and frill **faints**.

Yes I did scream with joy when I unwrapped it.
