Don’t judge me- Im just here to pick up my tamiflu….


Today on DIY: From throw pillow to kicky shorts with no sewing required!


Harriet’s father would never know she was going to the dance and not the library- Harriet was soo smart.


Nothing says class and refinement like a strap on fox carcass.


Alma was stunned to discover all Granny had left her was a set of wing chairs, but she soon made the most of them.


She was inspired by Alison, who’d inherited Grannys 2 pekinese.


As it got colder,Mia became more and more passive aggressive about Brads refusal to turn up the thermastat.

Happy Easter!

Easter is not Easter without hats. Or those little Cadbury eggs, but hats, back to hats! So lets get our bonnet plans sorted so we can go steal childrens eggs!


Daphne tested, Guinness approved.



Batteries and gold records not included.


Watch the thorns!


Sagging chin? No worries.


If you can’t see the minister, perhaps you should have gotten here earlier….


Why yes, I DO hear the ocean, now that you mention it.


I hope thew egg hunt doesn’t get rained out!


These girls seem over easy.  Get it? Egg jokes, I got ’em!


No, it’s a fascinator.


Handy and bonus points for recycling!

Wearable Wednesday Whyred

My Mother always hated when I’d dress up but wear my ratty casual coat with it. I believe I made this face at her when she’d mention it:


This is how I’d like a Miss Jane Marple reboot to look:


Well, for all of you that wondered if you could pleat fruit leather. You can. But don’t.



What is this? Leather? Godiva truffle liner? Does it affect her cell phone reception? Can I have a truffle?


I’m worried that 45 other people came out in this outfit and it turned into a depressing flashmob.


You know you can’t say Whyred without saying ‘WHY???’

The Rescue Post!! UPDATE!!!!


Readers, I have great news. For all of you who have been clutching your pearls and hankies- wondering about the LOST JUNGLE CRUISE- I have word of their successful discovery and rescue. When  word of a stray  cruise vehicle was reported to me, I immediately sought the most well-trained jungle search party with the best knees and dispatched them forthwith!




It was a long and tense week at the Grievous Outpost, but my intrepid rescue party has returned and all cruisers are healthy and well!Here are reports from  the front line:

Resting in the infirmary and sipping a pink squirrel- if the lovely and sarcastic, Splinters & Stitches! Lekala patterns are newer to me and I know I need this one now. The crossover is quite prec’.


Losing Maria in the jungle would have been a major tragedy- but I hear she carried several of the party to safety and looked amazing doing it! Go see Velosewer- she made 3 trips to the jungle- I’m counting this weeks snakey Wanda, too!


Gabrielle definited looked tempting to the rescuers in her wrap dress- I need this pattern too.


Miushka spent her time well, reading Proust to the locals and showing off her mules- tassels! Be still my heart!!!


Sue– I can’t leave you off the bus- get in back and grab a banana!

McCall's patterns 021a

Cari has a peak at her SWAP swag and a daisy of a dress to show everyone once you have all met your medical clearance and returned home.


A canoe has been spotted by my search flamingoes and Aida and Marianne are here safe!

These two were so busy enjoying the foliage and the legendary storytelling of the local zebras that we almost left them- can you imagine??

I am here to hottly deny the rumours that I  was after Marianne stash- resting unguarded here at home. But could you blame me???? Honestly, hand on a copy of Pride and Prejudice- I’m after BOTH OF THEIR FABRIC COLLECTIONS!!

Wearable Wednesday Ioana Ciolacu

Do you know how many pictures of my niece I have wearing similiar on facebook? She is three tho. She has no clue.


Seymour the moderate to severe plaque psoriasis skunk was only used as a spokesperson briefly. Consumers found the concept too flaky.


When  fashion meets function and they don’t develop a very good relationship.


Esther was so looking forward to becoming the 435th  wife of their holy leader. It was an honor not bestowed on many.

Wearable Wednesday Louis Vuitton

I know why the model is sad.


This wouldn’t even be a nice purse.


This would look so pretty on a girl!


Hey, don’t get mad at me- I didn’t dress you!


Can no one save us from leather booty shorts that hang like diapers?


Is this made of auto filters? Are those poison dart gloves?


Car mats! I get it now! It’s an auto theme! They’ve all been in an accident!
