Going to bed with Keith


If you haven't bought his autobiography which came out earlier this year, then please do so on this recommendation - it's fantastic. So far I have missed two stops on the bus I was so engrossed reading it, and it's my new bed time read hence the title of this blog post. I don't want the book to end, so I'll just take my time...

Marianne, may I please have your hair?

I want to ride my bike, all carefree yet deep in thought...I need a beautiful old bike in my life in 2011. Lovely Bridget! x

Love is real, real is love

Love is real, real is love,
Love is feeling, feeling love,
Love is wanting to be loved.
Love is touch, touch is love,
Love is reaching, reaching love,
Love is asking to be loved.
Love is you,
You and me,
Love is knowing,
We can be.
Love is free, free is love,
Love is living, living love,
Love is needing to be loved.

As is life!

If you're bored with life, if you don't get up every morning with a burning desire to do things - you don't have enough goals. -Lou Holtz

Snow day, duvet day, hat season!

I patiently awaiting the postman to deliver the newest addition to my family of hats...a beauty from the 1960s of course. Brown faux fur beehive hat with string under the chin and pom poms!

Other than that days have been spent working evenings dancing to northern soul with suited and booted mods, and pretty 60s girls. Sleepless nights have been had...trying to decide where to go in life.

Do I?

a) open a shop (I have no funds, but little debt) which will open late have a jukebox and records playing, selling tea, coffee and serving the healthiest vegetarian food in the day and selling beautiful vintage pieces and interesting books. A twist on the 60s late night mod coffee bars.

b) begin a fully funded ( 3 year!) social work degree

c) study nutrition (4 year) degree

d) study TEFL (teach English as a foreign language) and go travelling the world, and save money by working in Asia

e) continue in the city I'm in making jewellery, selling on vintage fairs and paying the bills by doing part time office work (I dislike traditional office work, dislike probably not a strong enough word) and continue with my counselling qualification

I am the most indecisive person I know. Any action is better than none, and today is a Snow Day! I can't get to let the action begin! now to decide?!!

Pleased to meet you, hello and welcome to Porcelain Doll Vintage

This blog is a forum for my ramblings and mutterings that tend to revolve around creativity, music and the 1960s! Enjoy! I buy, collect and sell vintage dresses and other lovely pretty vintage things!
