This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

More lovelies...........

I am sort of recording some of these beautiful gowns for my own pleasure. I see them as works of art really. Especially the beaded ones. So much work put into them. I wonder what happens to them. I know those who buy them probably only wear them once or twice because they are so memorable but then what?
Most of what I am showing is Haute Couture.....that means lots and lots of money.
Look at this. Not sure what occasion would allow for the wearing of this but I think its awesome

Why do the models make themselves look so the dress

These silver gowns are wonderful

A short dress too, not so fond of the short styles these days but as its not for me, well she sure looks nice in it

The gold is beautiful too

I look for gowns with beading or beautiful use of fabrics. I liked these two

The gold one looks very Egyptian. The other is Celtic

I decided that I was a Magpie in a former life as I love glitter.

Not so fond of bright colours but I did find a few that I liked

How about shocking pink....or the Celtic robe?

The bead work and the silver is wonderful. I wonder what the fabric feels like? Is it scratchy?

These two are more elaborate and I think I would like the 2nd one without the slit up it.......but it looks great on the model.

I am still not sure if I like the pink outfit, it looks like a 1950s or early 1960s outfit so I sort of like the fabric and style.........the red is just beautiful though. I wish they showed the rest of the dress

So there ya go, a few more beauties to drool over.

Joining Mosaic Monday at Little Red House


  1. Love your selections, I admire the workmanship and design. Love the first gold sleeveless gown, very pretty, and would also like to see the rest of the pretty red one at the end. I love sleeves that are just above the elbow like that, what is that called...I can't remember....

  2. They are all amazing! Truly breath taking! The Celtic Robe is stunning! I would wear that ;o) Hugs ;o)
