A movie and a book

As I type this I'm watching Guillermo del Toro's movie 'Don't Be Afraid of the Dark.' Have you seen it yet? Creepy movie, I'd have to say.  Awful creatures, creepy mansion... but the gardens, oh the gardens.... such a magical magical place they are... as magical as the mansion's incredibly lovely library room with its tall tinted Victorian windows.  But that's about it as far as I'm concern. 

This morning while at Barnes and Nobles I discovered Robin Brown's book, "A Bit of Velvet and a Dash of Lace".. Have you seen it before? I was totally amazed by her designs and fabrics, and textiles. Then I discovered she has a BLOG too!

Love love Magnolia Pearl's style and every piece of their beautiful, unique, and vintage clothing! Look at those awesome fairy blouses and bloomers! Love this style so much!

AND that bird's nest of a hair do! My goodness!

I so want my hair braided like that!  But how do these girls get to do that?  It seems mighty hard to me... 

How lovely... a bird-nest hair do! How cool is that!

Although really...  there are days when I don't even have to try...  

You just wake up looking like a true Hitchcock heroine!  Oh well! :) 

Wishing you a most pleasant week.
