And since we were in the neighborhood we browsed around Liberty, fondling fabric, checking out their housewares and stationary section.
Here’s a closeup of my newly made Fan-tastic Ginger. I made it from a Japanese fabric that has a gorgeous pattern of fans on it. It was much too sheer to wear alone so I lined it with black acetate.
As we left Liberty I just had to capture a photo of two women wearing gorgeous kimonos.
If you browse through my collection of photos through the years you’ll find that I am a bit obsessed with alleyways. I love taking photos of them: the lines, the shadows. I saw this alley and asked my friend to take my photo. I am clearly a great actress because you would never know from the look on my face that the alley smelled of buckets of urine. Or can you? Hmmm…
Once home I was stuck trying to take my own photos since my husband is working late today. It took AGES! It’s so hard to get a good self-portrait. The sun is almost gone and I assure you it was high in the sky when I started.
It appears I am still suffering from a sugar high from yesterday’s sweets.
Sugar crash. Enter Artistic Mela…
I’m loving sharing all this Ginger love. And I have more to give!
