My Friend Flicka and Old Yella comes flooding back to me

I'm having a little rest session, as I have shaken baby syndrome from rattling around on the back of a bike all day in 30 degree heat. I went looking at houses (not for me) and I scored a car. I don't drive but I soon will in my new (old) free car*. Sweet.

*Actual car is not this funky, and I won't be driving it in a Hitchcockesque outfit such as this ... from www.weheartit.com


My Friend Flika is on in the living room while I try to recoup with tea, a bex and a good lie down, and I'm sitting here fucking balling my eyes out. They didn't even shoot the goddamn horse and I'm crying. I also just watched Cyclo. Holy crap if you are up for a feel good flick, then this is your Vietnamese film of choice. There is pain, death, destitution, murder and a general sense of hopelessness. The cinematography is beautiful however, and it's definitely worth a look.

A photo I took out my window in Ha Long Bay



Anyway, less about dying horses and sad movies and more about me. If you leave a comment on this post or the post below you can win a random heart brooch and a set of vintage book gift tags.

Win me !!! (or one like me anyway)


New stuff up at my Etsy store also ...

Can't believe you were riding around in that heat yesterday?? Score on the awesome old car though!! There is a man in my street that has a whole bunch of cars like that which he does up, so cool! Have a great day and stop watching sad movies :-)

Hmmm ... pain, death, destitution, murder and a general sense of hopelessness ... sounds like I feel sometimes as I slave away on my Bernina. Love your new gift tags!
