Gorgeous girl has been out in Derbyshire doing Duke of Edinburgh training so I have spent the weekend cleaning (definition - moving things about admiring bits and putting them in new places). I didn't realise how much had changed until she came home grumpy and tired saying "Everything's changed - I'm so confused!"
I'm not sure what's going on as I found several crinoline ladies dotted about and they are so very Not Me! Pretty and dainty and delicate are not used in sentences with the word Wend in them! They've all been picked up at car boots etc - I hate to see them being thrown out!
Having taken pics of them I've added them to the Crinoline Lady group on Flickr where there are just 3 "ladies" who have added their Crin Ladies to the group. If you are tempted to look check out the photos of "The Custards - sheer eye candy for the vintage lover...
Can anyone tell me where this passion for crinolines came from? Was there a film which started it off? She and her beau also appeared on the early Quality Street tins until they were phased out...
All my messing about was accompanied by the man below in the form of Lenny Henry playing Othello on Radio 4. I always love a bit of Shakespeare and was able to listen without interruption and I wasn't disppointed! Bliss!
Hope your weekend was good!
