Odds 'n Sods

Digging around my pic files, I found these from a textile and art fair I took The Stylist to a few weeks ago.
All part of her education in the joys of the tactility of fabric and fibre.
There was so much to delight both kids and adults ... like delicious foam chips and stuffed fabric dagwood dogs! Yum...

I rarely wear red except for my lippy and one of my few red pieces of clothing is this 1950s wool coat with a jumbo-sized collar, buttons and pockets.

The Stylist in disbelief at the work that went into making this pom-pom circus costume.

Her sneakers were painted by a local tattooist we met at a flea market recently ... so colourful and happy for a wee lassie.
She chose neon-pink tights to layer under her skinnies.

Did you know you can commission people to create decorative sewing machine stickers out of your original art?  Imagine this sweet little face peering up at you saying "c'mon you can do it, it's looking great!"

Flower brooches fashioned from Japanese kimono silks ... how to pick just one?

And beautiful, enormous badges.

The Stylist was photographer for the day and I gave her free reign of the camera ... she found such cute handmade crafts to snap away at.

What's that look?  I dunno ... maybe I'm jealous of the dummy's shoes.
I wore Black Milk tights; thrifted vintage silver, dancing shoes, leather shorts and gloves; and an Edwardian, pink silk blouse from eBay. 
The sheer blouse is incredibly delicate and I have to be aware of my movements as it's wearing away ... it's like being wrapped in fine downy feathers.
I hope you're all enjoying a splendid weekend!
