Come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine! You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon. Shine on you crazy diamond. Come on you raver, you seer of visions, come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine. Shine on you crazy diamond.
I spent a good chunk of the afternoon 'thrifting' at various tiny antique shops.
I purchased a tea-cup covered in painted roses, a vintage doll - complete with a feather headpiece, and an old Nursery Rhyme book, which is full of beautiful images - some of which I hope to post soon.
I just want to take a moment to comment on how visually BEAUTIFUL Rihanna's new video "Only Girl" is! Wildflowers, girly outfits (Betsy Johnson!), rolling hills, balloons, over-sized roses, glammed out head-pieces, swings, glitter, rainbows, fireworks, fringe...it's almost overwhelming! What more could a girl want? I have noticed that more and more 'mainstream' videos are becoming artistic candy for the eyes. Kanye's latest "Runaway" and Ke$ha's "Take it Off" -- all that glitter!! -- are absolutely stunning.
I am still here, promise. I have been terrible at keeping-up with blogging lately, as it's a busy time in the semester. Also, with the Holiday Season picking up I've been working quite a bit at MAC and at my second job Muse (a dress boutique), as well as doing some province to province travelling. I appreciate all your messages and I will be responding to them early this week. Thank you for checking in. I'll put up a proper post soon, with some new photos of November adventures!
