Tulle, Teacups & Turquoise

 Bag & A Beret

The Secondhand Years

Misfits Vintage

Helga von Trollop

For a bit of fun I decided to get in on the tutu/petticoat action, like the gorgeous MelanieCurtise, Sarah MisfitHelga. Their photos were so beautiful & inspiring,  so I took on Sarah's challenge to rock some tulle, a teacup, but minus the step I'm afraid.  When else will I wear tulle in public?....well in my courtyard anyway.

I'm afraid I cut my own head off....a casualty of self-timer shots.

Have I slipped into the abyss of twee? 

Outfit Details.....
Green petticoat - Salvos
Jacket, top, tights & ballet flats - Retail
Beads - Thrifted
1950's Sunglasses - Ebay
Vintage teacup - Antique shop

And here are a couple more bloggers who joined in the fun.....

My local pal Desiree

And Clare from the UK

Now onto some recent finds.....
I do have a lot of green accessories, but I must admit to a shortage of blue ones. Well that's how I justify yet another accessory purchase anyway! I found a few blue pieces on my first visit to a new vintage store called Vintage Treasures. It's basically a shop set up kind of like a garage, & they sell things at garage sale prices. They sell some furniture, books, lamps, tools, nick-nacs & limited clothing & accessories.

 The bracelet is missing a few stones but I don't mind, especially when it only cost me a few dollars.

 Brooches were all $3 which is pretty cheap.

This is a pendant/brooch, & it's marked sterling silver too....$3

  20. Many individuals prefer to acquire the gay sizegenetics removed his robe as your session progresses. This however is something that you choose to want to decide before you go for your male sizegenetics. Communication before, during and after the sizegenetics is vital for one to get everything you're looking for through the experience. As you begin to learn about your gay sizegenetics, there's that some specialize in erotic male sizegenetics. Others offer only therapeutic sizegenetics. Therapeutic sizegenetics is closely related to medical therapy and centers with a relief of pain and chronic medical conditions.

  21. I love it! And Crazy Raven just did her delicious turn of the tulle. What a great meme- each of these ladies are so amazing to me.


I'd love to hear from you!
