I’ve chosen this dress for the September Must Have as it reminds me of late summer senoritas, the cool late summer nights that still have that sweet smell in the air of al fresco eating and holiday romances…
Pretty pleated skirt, would look amazing teamed with black patent Mary Janes…
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the stars that shine
and twinkle on the Milky Way,
They stretched in never-ending line
along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
in such a jocund company:
I gazed – and gazed – but little thought
what wealth the show to me had brought:
For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.
Happy St. David’s Day!

I just wanted to share this lovely pic with you! Reminds me of vintage postcards. I’ve been playing around with settings on my camera and found some lovely filters that worked well in my editing programme too! I think the colours work really well. Let me know your thoughts too!
This kind of “hands on” art truly excites me – I mean how freaking cool is that?
Painting without the paint! Hurrah for no clean up!
Keeping his identity hidden the Invader is known mainly for his street art of mosaic tiled characters from the classic arcade game – Space Invaders.
Invading cities all over the world installing the mosaics on those places frequented by many people and more obscure locations. Other sites include the Hollywood sign and Jacques Chirac’s lapel… Check out his invasions here.
As a logical next step to his work he uses Rubik’s Cubes to build up striking images, coming fully equipped with the pixel like colourful squares to make up the desired image. Thus Rubikscubism was born. He says in one interview – “The Rubik’s Cube is a fascinating object being very simple and very complex at the same time. The cube has over 43 billion different color combinations.”
Growing up a bona fide kid of the eighties it was hard to miss the new graphic world that surrounded me. My sister in her polka dot t-shirt that made up a picture of Madonna, my bedroom a blur now of dots and dashes, bright red wardrobes stand blocking old Victoria Plum wallpaper… People swishing passed me noisily in the mis-matching shell “suits” -angrily playing with their Rubik Cubes (or just trying to peal the stickers off)
I applaud the use of Rubiks cubes in this way, loving the idea of re-using something so recognisable to us as one form to be re-invented in another.
