my latest additions to the w.o.w , this ceramic 'Sid Dickens' called Reflection, a Xmas gift from big sis and a lady drinking tea that i found in a antique shop..
The title of my blog post today actually stands for 'wall of women'. I started a collection of pictures, of women, in my pink bedroom in the city about 5 years ago, and have accumulated a nice little collection. I love the antique gold and brown frames and i had fun arranging them in a offset manner....most of them are of women of the Victorian age, for instance, one is of a lady standing by a fireplace and looking forlornly into the fire and holding a letter, perhaps maybe a dear john letter she is about to post or a telegram stating someone has passed away, she looks rather upset.... there is also one of myself from 20 years ago, when i modeled for a hair salon and they took photos of me dressed in a 20's period gown with strings of pearls and white gloves....that was an interesting experience, i did a bit of modeling in my 20's and some fashion shows.... it is pretty glam but they put alot of makeup on and i almost look like a geisha!
That shot makes it look like I'm lounging on a pillow but my hip is actually resting on a cement floor - ouch!
The two smallest photos are of my mother with school friends and her wedding photo with my dad...also there is a Botticelli print, and the Mona Lisa in a lovely oval Italian frame... i have more in a box (in storage) although since i now share my bedroom with Steve, i don't want to overwhelm him with my w.o.w. and he didn't put up a fuss when i put them up.... i mean, they are very girly!
hey sis, can you find your picture in one of these photos?
