Suspended satin spring… now with giant pink sea snail update.

From the movie Bob Le Flambeur, where Anna (Isabelle Corey) serendipitously wends her way through Pigalle and is briefly a cigarette girl… “So you’ve made it. Music, night clubs, champagne!”

I know they aren’t suspenders but the white satin of her straps really caught my eye. And I think she is actually a flower girl, much nicer than cigarettes. What happened to Isabelle Corey? Why did she only act for 5 years? Does anyone know? Here she is with Bardot.

Which brings me to Snail with Nautilus Shell by Jeremias Ritter c. 1630? A satiny shell? I don’t know, I just love it. I definitely have a thing for satin this summer, more on that soon.

And have you seen the giant pink sea snail in Dr. Dolittle? The world needs more giant pink sea snails today I think. See it if you can, the best traveling house ever.

Some might think my blog is turning into my tumblr. Some might be right…

    Dunno if you got my reply to your comment (I always forget to “subscribe” when I leave comments), but I saw a girl in my tiny NC town of 40,000 wearing your sock garters! There aren’t too many stylish folx around here so it was exciting. :)

    Also, I’m moving soon & need to pare down my collection of craft supplies–could you use any more white vintage lace? I’ve had it forever and can never seem to use it.

    Oh hey! No I missed it, I’m sorry. I try to keep track and when I subscribe sometimes I get deluged with inbox stuff. Urgh! And really a about my sock garters? That is very crazy and kind of wonderful. I think it is more amazing to think of stuff you make going to tiny places thatn big places but big places are of course cool too.

    I know can you believe the waist situation? It really catches your eye in that photo besides the obvious insane beauty of them.

    Lace?!?!?!? Hang on I’ll be right over… xo :)
