Glitter, shrines and Frida Kahlo


My weekend has been long and tedious but I did make a page on Frida Kahlo, full of glitter, sequins, lace and ribbon which improved it a great deal. That, and talking over the phone until silly hours about films and books and how distance is horrid. 


Note the bracelet on my wrist that I wore when I was about eight aha.

I cover myself in glitter and then I feel ~fabulous~

I am contemplating making some shrines, but first I need to find a little cabinet with lots of shelves, or I might just put up some shelves on my wall. One of the first shrines will definitely be dedicated to The Virgin Suicides or Twin Peaks!

Also - here are some stills from one of my new favourite artists Erica Schreiner. She incorporates a lots of glitter and flowers - coincidentally, my two favourite things!





Hope your Sunday has been magical!
