One Day

One day Red awoke to a cloudy overcast morning. As she rubbed her eyes blearily she realised she was incredibly hungry so she got up & made breakfast, adding a dash of pepper.
She gazed longingly at the paper cranes in the hallway & dreamt of faraway places…
She sighed & turned to her sewing machine to put in her full day’s work.
Suddenly she spotted a pair of glittery red Dorothy shoes, she gasped in delight & slipped her feet into them.
Before she knew it she had tapped her feet together & was standing by a bowl of juicy raspberries  she popped one into her mouth, snatched up the cute animal rucksack from the side, grabbed an umbrella & with love in her heart disappeared out through the door…

Autumn is here. Usually I love its crispness & glorious colours but instead at the moment I am feeling particularly grey & low… I think it’s a general lack of sunshine!
Come on blue skies, I need you 🙂

Napoleon was a Redhead

That’s right folks! According to this he was.

Deborah Ann Woll (Trueblood), Florence Welch (Florence & The Machine) & Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under & the new Torchwood!). One of the girls from work said the other day that I remind her of Florence Welch. Compliment!

I have a real thing for red hair. I may have mentioned it before, here, here, & here. Hhhhmmmm. Some of my favourite bloggers are redheads too…

I love being a redhead & my hair has been too, well, dark lately, so yesterday I dyed it again… it’s much brighter & redder now!

Who’s your favourite redhead?

Five images saved on my laptop… 1. Me! Maybe aged seven-ish? (Mum! Any idea?) when I was in the Brownies. I’m feeling the Red Indian dressing-up vibe… might be fun to do for my birthday this year! 2. tattoo picture I found on Favim. I love tattoos… I have two, a daisy & a butterfly. 3. My favourite ring! Courtesy of Topshop. 4. Katy Perry in a very cute cherry dress. Love it! 5. Red Bamboo Coral earrings that I made yesterday. Available here


I am working a double shift today so I’m looking forward to tomorrow! Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend.

Red Headed Woman…

Some of you may have seen this piece before on my previous blog but here it is for those of you that haven’t….

She’s painted on canvas & then I’ve glued fabric pieces on to make her dress. I was inspired by the work of Australian artist Kat Mcleod.

She now resides at my mums house in Norfolk! Itching to do something similar again… I like to use fabric in slightly different ways…

Previous two images by Kat Mcleod. She’s an illustrator who works in mixed media, love her work.

I’ve got my college interview today, cross your fingers for me! xoxox


Pink Wednesday

(All pictures sourced from weheartit)
I’m particularly loving the last one… how gorgeous it would be to randomly stumble upon that!
So I turned 33 in December & I can honestly say that I didn’t achieve much of my ‘Before I’m 33 Wish List’! I did re-read quite a few of my favourite childhood books… Winnie-The-Pooh, Enid Blytons Faraway Tree, The Chronicles of Narnia & Tiger Eyes by Judy Blume… a real favourite of mine.

I never did get round to wearing an entirely red outfit but I did get a gorgeous 60’s style red dress, a red cardigan & a lovely gigantic red bag for Christmas! & with the red hair…. wouldn’t mind a pair of red skinny jeans a la Mischa Barton though…

I didn’t donate blood which is bad of me but I guess I’m more squeamish than I thought… my attempt at going to the cinema 12 times wasn’t even close! I think I went maybe three times in the end! I didn’t go to the ballet but I did make it to Scotland, although only for a week with work. I’ve yet to go back to be a tourist 🙂
Off to update the list for turning 34….. xox
