To Clip Or Not To Clip

I usually will pass on a clip on earring at the op shop, as I find they are not very comfortable but these two were too good to pass up!

The diamante and pearls were a perfect for a glamorous 
Marie Antoinette party I attended.

 I fell head over heels for these little beauties!

Free Vintage Patterns

I feel like I hit the jackpot with my new discovery of

Wendy has collected all the free knitting, crochet and sewing patterns on the net and made a lovely one stop site!

She has them categorised by decade and by type for easy searching.

The 1930's was my first stop and look what I found!!

The fabulous illustrations alone are worth a look.

She said it best... Gilda Radner

“I wanted a perfect ending. 
Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. 

Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next.
Delicious Ambiguity.” 

- Gilda Radner

John Galliano Interview

John Galliano speaks about the scandal that left his fashion career in shambles. 

John is my favourite fashion designer and its hard not to feel for him. I hope in time he will return to fashion in a more healthy manner to do what he does best.

She said it best... Mother Teresa

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.”
-Mother Teresa
