Feeling Springy........

No, I don't think I will join these bunnies in their ballroom work out
looks like fun though :)
Yesterday I was helping one of my beginner spinner students arrying a spinning wheel to her car , my foot got caught in a rug and I found out that walking with a wheel using only one leg is not only awkward but dangerous. The earths gravity caught up with me, or rather , my head hit the spinning wheel on its way down to earth. Result: bruised and grazed left knee, my right knee that had finally felt a bit better after dislocating it two months ago, was knocked and extremely painful and last but not least, my lips are punctured and so swollen that I can compete with even the poutiest of lips like those belonging to Angelina Jolie. No , I did not have a botox Fortunately my teeth are still there , my lips broke the fall… So to cut a long story short: the morning after –so today- I feel even worse than last night with aches here there and everywhere. I walk like a 102 year old with pouty lips……not a good… However, I did not want to deprive you all of some of my hand dyed tops this week that I am really really happy with ! I must be in a fairytale colour mood, because my absolute favourite is climbing roses. The blush pink going into a plum burgundy, blending in with light moss and greys to finally find its way to a duckblue sky: stunning. Kind of reminds me of David Austin Roses, a secret rose garden where you might stumble on the white rabbit holding a watch, while mumbling : “I’m late! I’m late !”.
Enjoy looking and virtually cuddling these amazingly soft and shiny magical tops
