Have you seen the beautiful images of Kate Winslet channelling Elizabeth Taylor ...an A-list movie star playing dress up to look like another famous Star! photographed by Mario Testino (genius!!) and styled by Carine Roitfeld ( so Chic!), the 'V Magazine' photos look amazing! You can see them here.
Its been done so many times before but it never feels tired... Iconic looks and styles refreshed into current times.
I've always loved this shot of Isabella Rossellini portraying flirty Sophia Loren, photographed by Steven Meisel in the early 90's
Va va Va Voom!

When I'm at work I day dream and long to be home playing with my crafty stuff but it seems once I do get the chance to work on all those creative ideas swirling in my brain -
I find something else to do.
Yes, I'm a procrastinator - big time! but its not all bad....
I've been busy in the kitchen going through my cookbooks, getting inspired with ingredients.
I made jambalaya for the first time last week - so easy, so tasty!
I made some very bland biscuits using quinoa, seeds and nuts. That Martha...I guess she doesn't always get it right!
I've been tending to two sick little boys who have runny noses and scary chest coughs,
ive been trying to declutter the spare room - my crafty mess, as we're planning some changes in our house. A revamp of our formal living room, a room neglected and unused
to what I envision to be a great workspace/casual hang out room - exciting!!
So I haven't been lazing around doing nothing....ive been a busy girl!
I've also been watching many documentaries' on 9/11, I cant believe its been 10 years...it seems like yesterday when we watched the shocking scenes on TV in disbelief, scared at what would happen next?!
Ive been thinking sadly of those who lost their lives on that tragic day
and for all the innocent people and committed soldiers who continue to lose their lives during this 'War on Terror' - when will it ever end?

Just a question for you bloggers
- do you plan posts or do you only blog randomly whenever you feel like it?
I try to mix it up but as a busy gal, a little planning is necessary...
however Im starting a new spontaneous blog post feature
all about inspiration
you know how I love to share what inspires....
so here is my first post for
a Happy day and a smile your way!!
These beautiful images are from
'the Fox and the Spoon' vintage store on Etsy - a gorgeous selection of goods.
Im loving the old fashioned cake tins.
