Black Jacket Affair


Don't miss Ange telling us about her Plank Project...
today at 
 


 Not sure if I showed you my latest vintage petticoat...
black layers of tulle with a little pink edging...
oo la la!


I've paired it with a beautiful black Victorian jacket in wonderful condition which I found last week on the way home from the lake.
It is a tiny size and in fact, is too small for this dress form.
  I will have to try it on Talulah Rose...
...who, with her tiny waste... has more of a Victorian figure.


 I love all the details...
the tucks and buttons and slightly tattered lace at the collar.


I'm heading north again for the weekend and am hoping to spend a day in Warrensburg for the town wide yard sale.
This event is not the same fabulous hunting grounds it was 15 to 20 years ago but you might remember that I did find some fun things there last October.

I had the privilege of interviewing my dear friend Ange from Signed by Ange about her awe inspiring project...
Positive Planks 


If you have the time on Friday, pop over to Kim Klassen's
  I think you will be amazed and totally inspired by Ange's talent, generosity and beautiful spirit!

...lovin` Tululah Rose's black vintage ensemble!! ~ add a pair of tattered black feathered wings and a pair of black satin ballet shoes and it would be just perfect for one elegant "fallin` angel" costume for a haunting halloween party!

Have a nice day

Oh what a gorgeous jacket Laura....just my style....it's rather annoying that the Victorians were so petite, as most vintage jackets are teensy tiny. I bought one in Camden Town Antique market once, but that was German....I think that the German women must have been slightly bigger !!!! haha.
Oh, and isn't Ange's art brilliant.? She is so lovely and I am privilidged to own one of her pieces. I look forward to reading your interview.
Have a lovely weekend. XXXX
