got up at 4 am ...good thing she wore McQueen

~ {have a great weekend!} ~

Royal Nuptials: Will & Kate

Well the Duchess of Cambridge looked stunning in her wedding dress designed by none other then Sarah Burton for the House of McQueen: 
The fact that her dress was to be designed by Sarah (shown above left trying to enter the Hotel this morning in disguise) was one of the best kept secrets in a long time.
It may have been a well kept secret but to me it was no surprise! I predicted it would be her the day she showed this seasons runway, back during Fashion Week.

& as you might have noticed it did bear a certain quality reminicesnt of Grace Kelly Princess of Monaco:

This Skirt is Tremendous

Easter Egg Painting: fun & easy project

My cousin & myself decided to paint some old fashioned easter eggs.
We actually poked holes through either end & blew the contents out (not pretty)
Then washed them (seen above)
We then left them to dry-off & made lunch (we had scrambled eggs :)
After we set to work painting them with some acrylic paint. 
It was lots of fun! You should give it a try.

Lets go sailing

      TO sea, to sea! The calm is o'er;
      The wanton water leaps in sport,
      And rattles down the pebbly shore;
      The dolphin wheels, the sea-cow snorts,
      And unseen mermaids' pearly song
      Comes bubbling up, the weeds among.
      Fling broad the sail, dip deep the oar:
      To sea, to sea! The calm is o'er.
      To sea, to sea! our wide-winged bark
      Shall billowy cleave its sunny way,
      And with its shadow, fleet and dark,
      Break the caved Tritons' azure day,
      Like mighty eagle soaring light
      O'er antelopes on Alpine height.
      The anchor heaves, the ship swings free,
      The sails swell full. To sea, to sea!

Shoesday Loves McQueen

Shoesday brings you: Alexander McQueen
Thought something a bit "springy" would be nice.
(but still high enough to keep your toes dry with all those puddles)
