Watching Hannah & Her Sisters

I was watching Hannah & Her Sisters last Saturday whilst I was sewing some snap pouches. I have seen it many times over the years, and yet it never fails to amuse me... Hannah's family is so so dysfunctional that it is comic, and there's so many subplots that the characters become very real. And among the many gem scenes, this one of Woody Allens on a date with his ex sister-in-law/ future wife really made me laugh. A clash of two worlds - Woody Allen in a rock venue is really something!

Craft Guerrilla Market

I've just received the poster for the next Craft Guerrilla Market, it's retro and crafty! I always look forward to this craft fair. There're always plenty of cakes, teas and cocktails; it does not really feel like a market, more like a garden party... As it takes place in a garden, let's hope the sun will be out!
A friend and I went along to one of their  monthy D.I.Y. craft nights (held the second Thursday of every month) last week, and it was a really fun evening! My friend bought the fox brooch kit and I got the winged heart tattoo but I have not quite completed it...

Out of print!

Out of Print clothing produces tees, with images of the cover jackets of cult best sellers (some of which are on my must read list... : "On the Road", "The Catcher in the Rye" and so forth. Is-it a great idea?

Johnny Cash - I Still Miss Someone

I had a bit of a "funny" morning: Johnny Cash's "I still miss someone" is one of my favourite songs, along with Gram Parsons' "Still feeling blue", so I trailed You Tube for clips. Sadly, I could not find any early ones of the late 1950s or 1060s, but saw plenty of attempts by other performers... Of course no one can beat Johnny Cash, but it was really touching so see many singing this song, some heavily bluegrass versions and others bare to the minimum.Below is Cash at a concert in Prague the 1970s. It's a sad song, but it's brilliant!

Yellow and cream...

are my probably my colour combination, hardly original I admit, but it's so fresh and youthful. It reminds me of one of my favourite fashion icons, Mia Farrow in Rosemary's Baby...
