The Peace Girls

Dear Diary:

I've really enjoyed buzzing around Vintage Fair the last couple of weeks.  As I stated in previous posts, I found I liked a lot of poses, clothes and jewelry that were offered there.  Yesterday, I persuaded my friend Chloe to join me so we both could buy a few things and I could post the two of us together.
We had a great time picking out our clothes.  Chloe loves the 80's look while I lean more toward the late 60's.  We had a wonderful afternoon flying from store to store.  When we arrived at Status, we found this great post that's so appropriate for us - Peace Girls.  It was so much fun and so many laughs.

Vintage Fair closes tonight but you still may have time to zoom around to find some awesome things.

Turn on, Tune in, Drop out! - as the saying went!

Good Night for now.

Feldgrau is Fabulous

Dear Diary:

Since this is almost the end of August, and I notice that some of the trees are starting to turn colour already, feldgrau seemed the perfect shade of green for this time of year.  If my high school German serves me right, I think it means "field gray" but I loved the green in Luna's swatch better.

I've also been enjoying Vintage Fair.  I found I really love the "old" looks for some clothes.  I particularly liked this dress since my Mom had one similar in style, only in black.  It was such a classy style that seemed timeless and she wore it for years.

Good Night for now.

Russett is the Colour of the Week

Dear Diary:

This week, the colour in Luna's challenge was russett.  It was one of those colours that was very difficult for me to match and yet, at first, it didn't look like it would be.   Is it brown?  Could it be mauve?  Hmmm.... It took me a bit to look through the closet to try to find something that might come close.

I love this weekly colour test.  What a challenge it really is!

Good Night for now.

Tyrian Purple

Dear Diary:

I had no idea that there was a colour called "Tyrian Purple" until I looked it up and found this:

Definitions of 'Tyrian purple'
1. highly prized crimson or purple dye of classical antiquity, originally obtained at great expense from a certain shellfish: later shown to be an indigo derivative and synthetically produced, and now replaced by other synthetic dyes
2. vivid, purplish red
Originating in Tyre, this colour is mentioned in writings dating back to 1600 BC.

I didn't go quite back that far but I did pick up this cute dress at Vintage Fair.
Good Night for now.

Jonquils Like to be First

Dear Diary:
I have jonquils in my garden so this colour really appealed to me.  Jonquils are one of the first flowers to bloom in early spring and add a bright note often when there is still a bit of snow on the ground.  This flower is often mistaken for a daffodil as they look quite similar.

And I really don't like to be first...ummm...ok....sometimes!

Good Night for now.
