I See London, I See France ...

By Desiree68 @pullyoursocksup
After a week of rattling and peddling, I fancied a change.  
I decided the change would be Manic Panic's Ultra Violet laid over my existing Hot Hot Pink.
The darker, textured look feels rather nice.
We'll see about the drugs ... but your kindness is so incredibly infectious,  you will never, ever really know how you've carried me through each day.
Thank you.

I See London, I See France ... 1940s slip and bolero - Etsy Bath mat bag - gift from Vintage Bird Girl Granny beads - op shop Cat ears headband and rosary - retail Shoes - Dolls Kill sale This pic was taken last Friday after a doctor's appointment, the day after I changed my hair color.
A lovely lady wearing a purple hijab and brooches and using a purple phone obliged me by taking the photo.  My hair was the exact color of her veil and we were both really chuffed to meet one another. I See London, I See France ...
I See London, I See France ... 1970s frock - gift from Mrs D of Hello the Mushroom Necklaces and earrings - op shops Tiara - borrowed from The Stylist
I See London, I See France ... School holidays mean The Stylist is available for snapper duties.  I do love her pics, she has an eye for unusual angles and framing.
She's also the sweetest girl I've ever known.

The lippie is Lime Crime's Red Velvet.
I See London, I See France ... I've grabbed my lucid moments by the short and curlies, by baking and sewing.
This t-shirt has always been a favourite, even though it is a rather weird shape for me.  I bought it a few years ago from an op shop for $4.
A wee while ago I spilled coffee down the front and Camden Town and Embankment have never looked the same.
I thought about turning it into a cushion cover, but quite honestly, after my experiences of extensive Tube travel on grotty pre-WWII rolling stock during the 1980s, I could think of nothing more amusing than planting one of my favorite graphics against my arse.
I See London, I See France ... The t-shirt got the chop and I've been eeking out the precious print to make big pants.
I See London, I See France ... Kentish Town has a wee crochet flower to disguise the coffee stain.
I See London, I See France ... Dead-set the most comfortable knickers I have ever worn, they take less then half an hour to whip up and they haven't fallen apart in the wash.  Bonus.
I See London, I See France ... Oh come on, I had to wear my knickers on the outside didn't I?
They're way to mental to hide away everyday.
