Book Haul and other stuff...

This week was a good reading week for me. I got through a few books I wanted to get through and started making my bookish polyvore sets again. I also got back into painting my fashion illustrations. Gouache is definitely my kinda paint. I've been toying with the idea of selling art or uploading my paintings onto my blog or maybe giving my blog a makeover and painting a picture to use as the background, but I'm not entirely sure yet. So, we'll see...

'The Immortal Rules' by Julie Kagawa
-Yay! I was very excited about this one!

A Life in Frocks: A Memoir
'A Life In Frocks: A Memoir' by Kelly Doust
-It sounds really cool. Basically it's about her life, but the story is told including details of her style at the time. The sentimental meaning of certain clothes and all that. It's also really cute. It has ilustrations and it's done up like a hardcover (it's really more like a hard version of a paperback) with a dust jacket and the actual cover underneath the jacket is vintage underwear.

I bought these collar necklaces from
I bought the silver one from here
I bought the gold one from here

My aunty went overseas recently and brought back heaps of cool stuff.

-Aren't these masks just awesome. She brought the cat one back for me and the other one back for my sister.

The paper used for the photos was a freebie from Frankie mag by Caitlin Shearer.

Also, is anyone else having problems with blogger's spell check lately?
