Trains and Teacups

After much waiting, here is the little video I made for Worn that I wrote about a few months ago.
You can also view it and other lovely Worn videos at

I made a book, based on a short story I wrote a few months ago. I'm quite charmed by it, and made a little flip book video, which you can see at the bottom of this post. x.x.x

lover please

I'm still fumbling around trying to figure out my new camera (Canon Rebel XTi if anyone has any fun tips to give me). I took these today post school, visit to the paper place, and putting up posters for a monthly mending show. I got a little side-tracked going into one shop to poster, and ended up buying a lovely vintage  dress. I just can't resist florals. I also can't seem to resist Philistine, the shop I bought where I bought my new dress and coincidentally the button front tunic in these photos. 
Lets all have a lovely weekend x.x.

Clogs and long-lost '90s dresses

All I want to wear this spring are 90s floral dresses, particularly in black and white. I'm afraid this will encourage me to go to more 90s parties though, which always makes me do the silliest things.
(see photo at bottom for my last 90s costume, Kelly Kapowski inspired)

You always break the kindest hearts

This Valentines has be wrought with a little confusion, glittery card making parties, aching, breakfast confessions, honesty, a man with a decision to make, and white see-through blouses. I hosted a Valentines making craft night for a Worn party, which led to silly choices, spice girls and fur dress ups. I ended up where I wanted to be, which was lovely, but complicated. The next morning (afternoon) was breakfast with my dearest friend Andrew, which is always full of laughter, gossip and love stories. Later tonight I get to wear read and sing it all out at Hearbreak Karaoke. Happy Valentines Lovelies xo

we didn't realize the forecast had been revised

I invested in a new camera (yay), but was then struck by the bitter cold and forced to stay indoors. These are some photos I took of objects around my apartment.
Music box that plays Moon River, because I once told Lindsay that if she knew a boy loved me and he asked her how to tell me it would be by playing that song outside my window.
My other new camera who I can't wait to start using (correctly with a new flash).
A viewfinder that shows old pictures of Paris.
A jewellery box my Grandpa made me when I was younger. He is my hero.
A leaf hair comb that I must fix soon.
I just liked this because it felt like I was in a tent, but really that's just my mattress behind me. I had to move it out of my bedroom for the day so a water  meter could be installed. I think I reversed it and the frame when I put it back, and my entire bed feels like it's new (refreshingly so).

 Some hairpins that I haven't used yet because I haven't found the right outfit to accompany them. suggestions?

just a way to steal tomorrow

 I found this adorable dress today while thrifting on a snowy, snowy day. I realized I have a lot of florals, and a lot of dresses, but the pattern and colors were too perfect to resist. I planned on wearing this to the Moondoggies concert, but it was cancelled due to the snow.  I also got my hair cut,  in one of those 'change your hair- change your mindset' whims, but so far I have still been quite the silly, erratic girl.
I am quite fond of my new hair, though.

the empress of the north

I'm in a little lull until the end of the day, but hopefully Wednesday will bring a few bouts of creativity my way. I couldn't resist sharing these two videos. I first saw them last week, and fell in love. I missed How to Dress Well's (above) show Saturday night, but the Moondoggies (below) are tomorrow night,  and I can't wait.
