I was all ready to put up a post, but then I got news that this wonderful thing was up and I can’t possibly compete. A frock: A work of art: inspired by my work? I can die happy now, thank you Resa!
Were you ever inspired to embellish an Art Gown with 300 wine corks?
Tip #1 – Do not attempt to drink 300 bottles of wine all in one night. Spread them out over a few days.
Tip #2 – Share them with friends.
Tip #3 – Read a romance novel byImelda Evans while you sip luxuriously
La Vie en Rosé is inspired by and dedicated to Imelda and her latest novel “Playing By The Rules”
OF course I would have to attach all the corks somehow so I bought 110 meters of old gold soutache. It was easy getting else wise creative with that soutache.
“If you could put 1 color to Kate & 1 color to Josh what are those 2 colors? Not that I will use them, but what would they be?”

My incredibly talented friend Resa has done it again. Another art gown, this time inspired by the sea…
Did you ever get the urge to design an “Art Gown” who could swim the oceans & seas spreading love and peace?

3 white T-shirts, of my design, and 2 boxes of purple dye. I immediately tie-dyed 2 of the t-shirts, thinking of hippies in their tie-dyes and velvet bell-bottoms.
When it comes to “Love &Peace”, the Hippies were full of it.

In honour of the solemnity of this Friday for many people, I thought I’d share a quite extraordinary digital rendering of surely, one of the world’s most magnificent artworks, the Sistine Chapel, in Rome.
If you click on the picture below (which I took from the Wikipedia article on the Sistine Chapel) it will take you to an amazing, virtual tour of Michelangelo’s magnificent Sistine Chapel. With the buttons in the bottom left, you can zoom in or out, and by clicking and dragging with your mouse, you can change your angle of view. I have no idea how they did this, but it’s wonderful. A stunning Friday Favourite.
May your Friday be truly good.
PS: for those who read last week’s cocktail post and wanted the answer to the challenge question, I have put it at the bottom of the comment trail on that post.
