Boudoir Babe II


So much to do...and so little time...but just wanted to share with you this gorgeous gal! Oh la la!

She's a little worse for wear, but I think I like her all the more for that...she's lived, and you can't help but respect that...the years have ravaged her silken gown - sadly, the fact that she sat out in the rain all day at the flea market last Sunday probably didn't help - but that's another story...
She's dried off now and is enjoying a little bit of r&r in our living room.
Talk to you soon...must fly!
Lots of love, Niki x

  3. She is so pretty, what a wonderful find! She will fit in very well in her new home. You know, I forgot all about the Shepton Flea, too engrossed in painting!!! I was so disappointed. I had planned on popping down for an hour or so. It wasn't a very nice day was it...
    I hope that you have enjoyed the summer holidays with your family.
    Phoebe comes back today from having been away for a week. I can't wait to see her again!
    Will be in touch re possible dates for the mirror shortly.
    Take care

  7. Beautiful lady!! It's great when you make a find like that. We went off to Shepton mallet on Sunday ... why is it always wet when we go:)& came back with goodies. Must get my camera out soon.

  10. Ah but she is one smart girl. She must have known the weather would turn and wore her waterproof mascara. I like a girl who's prepared for anything.

  12. I think she's just lovely. Now she will have a wonderful home and be cared for properly. Some days I feel like I'm a little worse for wear too. Someday I will be tattered and hopefully somebody will still love me.
    Hugs,
