Frankie + me.

Today the postman dropped off something rather exciting. not overdue library book notices, nor bank statements... but the newest issue of Frankie magazine.
And the reason i met today's parcel with such excitement (and fluttering hands and heart) is because this issue, (number 35) features a poster print of my lady Cybele Bertrand. Centrefold glory!
So, if you feel like adopting Cybele and hanging her up in your home, there you go. I hope she keeps you good company. She's tucked into the middle, next to some vintage caravans.

actually, its's slighty (very) surreal. back when i was in highschool, i had frankie posters on my walls myself. so, this is hard to process.

In other news:
. pumpkin scones = best ever. There hasn't been a working oven in this house for something like two years and now we finally have one, all i can dream about is roasted potatoes and lemon meringue pie.
. portraits on canvas. time to try working a little bit differently! I haven't attempted any work on canvas for about 12 months.
. mermaid tails. Did you ever read the version of the little mermaid where she flung herself overboard and turned into seafoam? suicidal sea lady.
. on a mountain holiday i found a book signed and written by Lauren Bacall. babe-o-rama.

  26. Congrats!
    I love mermaids. The little mermaid is one of my favourite fairytales.

    The little mermaid who flung herself overboard and turned into seafoam is the original fairytale of Anderson. It's so romantic. Disney changed that, but i think he missed the clue and destroyed what the story was all about. But that's my humble opinion. :-)

    Sweet greetz!
