Going back to NYC tonight . LA has been great . I think I might like to live here.

So much space and so much quieter .

And great flea markets. What more could a girl want.

winter blues

I have found my old leather biker  jacket resonantly in  the bottom of a slightly dusty box -We were both very happy to see each other again after all these years . I have no idea where and when I got it  . But its a perfect fit ,arms slightly bent,good chunky angry looking zips

I have also adopted a pair of dungarees . Which (apparently )have an anti ageing effect on me . They are a bit comedy too as they seem to twist a little  . (However it does open up the debate for appropriate clothing for over 35 year olds . But hey)

Then the dress I swapped a few weeks ago ,for my reading glasses ,has become a favourite too in that Little House on the Prarie kind of way .Channeling 1970’s mom .

Burning up

I seem to spend most of my time sorting ,shifting and piling .

Is this a fashion side-effect ? Stuff ?

With a fear of ending up as a crazy old person in a house full of stuff . I am getting rid.

Setting fire to loads and loads of unwanted tear-sheets and stuff .(not no1 photo -are you mad?!)

Keeping warm 3 nights running .

It feels good to let go .

blackberry crumble

I thought Id share this with this weeks Blackberry users . I think we could all do with these instructions .

The realisation that our computers don’t have brains after all  . Oh .

In fact , why not get back to carrying all this around instead ? ( note men only )

And look -how happy we can be with just six buttons to press .(hey women – we can press the buttons !)

The Joys of simplicity .

I had a really nice hour or so in the National Portrait Gallery last week .

I am trading in my ‘mom’ car for something a little more fun & enjoyable ,old, and high maintence( like me?)

I met a lovely retired couple yesterday who after giving me 600 biscuits and endlesss cups of tea showed me their prized possesion .I gave it a little drive and with the roof off it was brilliant if not a little shakey . So I went home and looked at the extra photos I took and put the kids to bed ,ate dinner ,chatted to friends about it and then basically forgot to bid and with 5 mins to go -nothing happend and I lost out .

So maybe it wasnt meant to be

The search continues ….

The term souvenir brings to mind the mass-produced kitsch that is the main commodity of souvenir and gift shops in many tourist traps around the world. But a souvenir can be any object that can be collected or purchased and transported home by the traveler. The object itself has no real significance other than the psychological connection the possessor has with the object as a symbol of past experience. Without the owner’s input, the object’s meaning is invisible and cannot be articulated .* wikipedia

My taste levels are seriously worrying me at the moment!

Here it is, looking remarkably similar to Elie Tahari advertising campaign.

It has finally been uravelled after about 23 years in mums garage .

Its way too big for my office (big shame) but it can fit in the Lounge .

Its a whopping 12ftX16ft . Ancient 1970s party stains and all .Its booked in for a clean .

Mum is convinced it was silk( noway) but I still reckon its Art Deco ..

Remember it ?
