R is for R-E-D and for R-E-P-E-A-T

 I am not lying when I say I love this red satin rose headpiece.
 I've stitched a little bit of black lace over its base and stretched it so it
flutters a bit on the forehead.

 Here's its inception.
It will be available at The Hat Box after I hotfoot it in there tomorrow.
That's all.
I'm off to study Auslan.
I will be honest with you, I am on the third round of Auslan One..
A repeat student who doesn't do her homework.
I know.

Halloweenie: Early Start

I am always chuffed to get an invite to a party.
It is a lot of effort indeed, to have people over.
Especially for Halloween.
I am also chuffed that I talked Mr Fascinata into wearing a hairpiece.
I am nothing if not predictable.
Call me Morticia and here is Gomez.
And we brought Thing without his RSVP.

 The host and hostess just pretty much left their house how it is everyday.
Poisons...operating tables....scary creatures....
Which was very disappointing.
 I have peppered this post with a few fleurs fierce enough for Halloween wearing.
Hope you don't mind the almost gratuitous placement.

Costumes included the details.
This clown had bows on her pointing pumps.
 They pulled a few fingers out of the oven.

 Forgot to hide their skeletons in the closet.
Nonetheless, a great time was had by all.
I met the lovely Malificent.
That beautiful hero and villain.

 Moreover, and in the ultimate example of forward planning.
The 2015 Flora and Mr Fascinata in Paris sojourn had been booked.
I can't take the credit.

 I am as excited as you are.
 What are you looking forward to?
Anything grabbing you?
Do tell.
 I'm off to tidy up Flora's atelier.

Fiscal Sense: Ubermodel

 I must save myself at least $10,000 per day by doing my own modelling work.
I am now one of Flora's 'house models'.
A very late bloomer.
Not to mention not having hired help to tidy the House of Flora.
That's a saving, too.
Makes good fiscal sense.
 I mean, on some days, you wouldn't know where to start.

 I am still besotted by this little straw disc cocktail hat and feathered pom-poms.
I know.
It's as light as air.

 Have I won you over?
$90 AUD and I will spring for postage.
Make an enquiry if you would like the pom-poms in another colour.
I will see what I can do.
In less exciting news I have had to eschew cakes and their baking, taking up more walking.
 It's been as hot as Hades and I seem to the only person the slightest
bit concerned about sun-safety.
Whatever you do; wear sunscreen.
Do you care?
Stay lovely.
