A Pop Art Parcel of Joy

Look what I received in the post the other day?

It's only a riot girl themed bundle of loveliness from my fellow desperate housewife, blogger and weirdo the immensely talented and beautiful Edie Pop!

Look it's me!!

Isn't this tote amazing?  As well as this fabulous personalised 'Lucy' bag, she sent me some beautiful earrings and the cutest little postcard of her own illustration all wrapped up in ribbons and bows

It was just the pick me up I needed after 2 weeks of not being able to wear any makeup and avoiding going out cos of a horrid yukky skin outbreak.

It inspired me to dye my hair

Paint my nails in primary colours

Apply at least 2 weeks worth of make up, including haphazardly affixed fake eyelashes

And clown around taking overexposed photographs!

Skirt and beads - Charity shop
Blouse - Supermarket
Cardi - M&S Outlet
Brooch - Primark
Tights - New Look
Shoes Office via Ebay

Oh, and did I mention she also sent me this fabulous Courtney-esque babydoll nightie....

...which was begging to be put on and photographed at the earliest opportunity! 


Check me out with my Edie Pop original

How well she's got me sussed with this number.  Remind you of anyone?

But with blonde hair and smaller booboids:(

And of course I needed some vintage Hole at full volume!

Edie, I can't thank you enough for thinking of me and putting so much thought and effort into these lovely gifts which had  me jumping up and down and squeeing like a school girl

'Violet' is just for you

Have a great week everybody

UPDATE : Linking up with Lakota as I think this is definitely worthy of a Ta-da!
