House of Fire
I was queuing outside the Indian High Commission at 7.30 this morning and I haven't warmed up all day. Today's blog title is an Alice Cooper song because my eyeliner resembled his after an hour spent in the icy rain. I'm not a winter person and hate the cold with a passion.
Our house is old and draughty so we've got the heating on and a real fire burning in the grate.
The brass companion set isn't really to our taste but we found it in a skip and a coat of matt black stove paint should transform it nicely.
I've dug some cosy clothing from out of the depths of my wardrobe to keep me snug over the coming week. The faux fur boots are by Kurt Geiger and cost £1.50 from a car boot sale, I thought the seller would want more as they hadn't been worn. The simulated mink jacket was a jumble sale find, it cost 15p. I made the brooch by glueing a pin to the back of an oversized button with nail glue.
It's definately the night for a glass of red wine and a good book.
