This time it's personal!

...need a little vent first, so a big thank you to the mindless moron who smashed my windscreen with a bottle on Fri night and has cost me £500...a pox on you! (What is wrong with people?!?!)

Grrr!


Anyway to lighter (and brighter) matters!

Today I'm loving my new, albeit temporary, hair colour...over the past years I've had it black with blue, pink and blonde, dark blue with purple extensions and dark red with white bits, but have to say this probably my fave so far....voila! :0)


...would madam like to see the back?


And finally I give you my Jimmy Saville impression: "Jewellery.. Jewellery.. Jewellery!!"

I've had these wooden hearts for a while now and didn't really know what to do with them so after a bit of head scratching, drilling and painting I came up with these...I threaded two onto organza and made them into chokers. (For sale if you're brave enough to wear one...they're quite large!)

I painted the pug with acrylics, the wording is in ink.


WUFF!


I used silver leaf and a line from "Who killed Bambi?" by the Sex Pistols.


Punky Bambi!


Karma Chameleon is same acrylic painting but I used Dutch gold leaf to pick out the "Karma"; threaded onto spotty ribbon and currently being used as a bag charm....



Snapped up by my lizard loving chum...thank you Lucy! :)



I'm on a roll at the moment so some are being turned into Christmas tree decorations too...I'm chanelling Slade and Roy Wood and general 70's glam rock, so watch this space!...

FIVE HUNDRED QUID!!!!! No wonder you are Grrrring. You have to pay all that money out because some ..... (guess the word), no doubt thinks it's clever to bottle your car ~ I'm mad too now.

Hair is groovy ~ I'm lovin' it and wish I had the bottle to do it.

Chokers are fab, truly unique.

Can you tell which era I'm from ...groovy and fab indeed.
