The time at our disposal each day is elastic; the passions we feel dilate it, those that inspire us shrink it, and habit fills it.
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
The charms of the passing woman are generally in direct proportion to the swiftness of her passing.
We say that the hour of death cannot be forecast, but when we say this we imagine that hour as placed in an obscure and distant future. It never occurs to us that it has any connection with the day already begun or that death could arrive this same afternoon, this afternoon which is so certain and which has every hour filled in advance A change in the weather is sufficient to recreate the world and ourselves.
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.
My first project is this chair i got from my boss who recently passed away, it was a real run down old pine chair that has a lot of history around it. I chose to keep it as i couldnt pass it by and have found the bestest idea of restoring it!!
Ive started to decoupage the chair using lots of magazines and fashiony pictures and so far im well pleased with it - i should have practised on something first as ive thought of things now i wish id done differently!!
But hey ho it all adds character!!
Progress so far!!
Also i quickly made this photo frame using an old book, ive always wanted to do a wall with a favourite book of mine Romeo and Juliet but i havent decided which wall as of yet!!!
Raymond "Ossie" Clark (9 June 1942–6 August 1996) was an English fashion designer who was a major figure in the Swinging Sixties scene in London and the fashion industry in that era. As a result, Ossie is now extremely well renowned for his vintage designs, the contemporary fashion era being characterised by past influences and a retro feel to design.
Shockingly In 1996, 54 year old Ossie was stabbed to death in his council flat in Kensington and Chelsea, London, by his then 28 year old Italian former lover, Diego Cogolato who was convicted of manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility and jailed for six years.
