Merry Mushie...



Mushie Love is here! I stopped procrastinating for 5 minutes and got these uber cuties up on my shoppe. Do take a peek!

It took me a while to put scissors to these fabrics. Japanese-import fetchingly-retro mushrooms on cotton canvas doesn't sound any sweeter than anything else in the world for me. Or maybe Krispy Kreme? For people who live in Tokyo metro, did you guys see the Krispy Kreme queue outside Times Square?! Jesus. I didn't even bother to take a picture coz my camera won't cover the length of the queue. And there I thought, hey, let's go get a donut. *eye roll*

Back to the mushies....I've been pretty much hit with the 70s wave. I'm always a vintage lover but never thought I'd progress beyond the 60s. Well, maybe as time progresses, the vintage bug moves too? Oh well. I think it sorta started when I saw this pillow. Then California Dreaming started playing in my head, day and night. I started looking for the mv on youtube. The of course, it had to progress onto Surfer Girl because of Cameron Diaz and Demi Moore, Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles (I played this video through my exam period) and ultimately stopped at Lennon and Ono. Seems that some people actually hate Lennon but methinks his determination to live life and make changes deserves some respect. It seems that its destined that great people tend to die young, Bruce Lee & Lennon (is it just me or does anyone else think he looks a little like Aidan Shaw when he first appeared in SATC?)for example. Or maybe its only in those ways that etches a deep memory.

Anyhoo....I've also been searching for retro fabrics, of course (^____^) but haven't been able to find anything fetching. If you are reading and do have pieces from Dekoplus or some scandinavian, european fabrics you have available, give me a buzz. Oh, and vintage french linen with red stripes on it as well. ;+)

As if I haven't got enough. Tsk tsk, shame on me!
