Athena Miller in her Flutterbydaisy Dress; Mad for Tea; and Knitting Pretty...

* Athena Miller in her Flutterbydaisy Dress *

Love these photos Athena sent me today... very Alice in Flutterland...

Tales from The Treehouse

Today disappeared. Laughing with my lil bro that boredom caught on until I tea stained almost the entirety of my wardrobe in the sink ... now everything matches. Thinking up frills to wear tomorrow for doing nothing with you, I'm thinking something tea stained, clearly, wrapped in a red bow to let go of the sparkles we're buying before we do and eat lunch; we like plans when they are to do nothing. The rest of my non-day was spent knitting, there I sat, here, I have lots of knittedness in the making for a few lovelies...Knit knit... lala knit... la la...full of wool. It would be nice in the morning of the postman posted me my camera films *crosses fingers and toes* typing of postmen - the case of the missing package was open, had chapters and is now solved and Sabines dresses are safe home with her to dance in for New Years hurrah!
I hope you all have a beautiful one filled with Magic and sparkles xx

Daisy Daisy, la la la lala la... and all those birds

... I got me a bike ...
... Then I went for a ride around ...

... She comes from here : ...

... and was delivered by two Xmas Elves ...

... Then I was happy ...

Tales from The Treehouse

I couldn't sleep, even though I made new feathers for my nest. It was just the same as the past time when I could only sleep as your parrot, like that poem I wrote you, but this time I'm the bird girl; He landed in my garden, I wanted to feed him but every time I got too close he flew away. Always the same, always birds, sparrows and nests... why? because all those flutters they make make me happy, but don't talk about their cages, they don't like that... even if the cages are as big as the world and more beautiful. This is all I've learned about my birds... that and I probably couldn't be happy without them, in that case I'd probably become one.

The Moon, The Star, Shuna's Video and The Magic Lady...

* SHUNA in her Magical video wearing her Flutterbydaisy dress *

Tales from the Treehouse

She was standing, stooping, swaying, velvet purse in hand, lips coral, fabric long and hair longer, silver threaded and weaved. I saw her see me... she is The Moon, The Star and no cards in between : telling me to be patient, to wait through a storm that is here or coming, in the end it could be possible, whatever it may be... but beware The Moon especially when it's looking. I wonder where she went when she left, walking, gait irregular and strange... She could have been the future, the past or from another time all together, she was definitely not from the here and now. Beautiful, effortless, ageless and made of pure magic...

A Pretty Packet...

* Lola *

Today a pretty polka dot packet arrived from the postman tied with a red ribbon, inside was a present; this print of Lola from my petal Luna ... here is her website : :
I miss all the past times, the flat eggs, the Big Red drinking sessions, the hangovers, Spaghetti House, friends on TV, our rooms, moving, over coffee gossip and all the times in between... Sending Luna lots of love from all the way over here xxx

Tales from the Tree House

Never ending mornings and my curtains make everything look like summer and you say it's like another world. We can go to our usual and order our usual from the bear man after watching bad movies with saltcorn; we're here for the snacks. Homemade soup and gifts and then I start to daydream but stop myself just in time, because I don't have to anymore...

Playing with Cameras in The Garden...

Some photos printed from a shoot a couple of months ago when it was still warm enough to dance around the garden in a summer dress, just. We took our old and new cameras to play...

* Film prints by Mike Blowman *

Tales from The Treehouse

I'm trying to be healthy and I think I'm allergic to it ... my body is unsure what to do with all this fruit and soup inside and keeps asking me where all the caffeine is at. Berries in my washing and not even a bubble in my bath. My bed is a nicer place to be now though... also because sometimes, like in a minute you rock up at my door, I like that. That other place seems so far away right now, and more, and I don't much mind it seems - I guess here is growing on me again; moss not mould... but not for long because the middle of nowhere calls, like now, but in reality and with more fields...

Between a Raven and a Writing Desk...

Alice in Wonderland 'Drink Me' Pendant

...I wore it here : love it...

Tales from The Treehouse
Sewing thread and wrapping jersey over wire; a flower. Finished a dress, packed wrapped... time went slow and then too fast some of it went away because the Clock ran out of tick. Walking around The North Point, seeing what you saw; the walking grey... I try not to breathe it in, and them: they see me see them so I blink longer. A wall of wool is the only wall there that looks the same, it all smells the same though and I remember that dream I kept having about being stuck in this place. You have to pay at the front so I did. Now I'm going to knit it all together. Would be lovely to visit the day we sat listening to Golden Oldies and sewing sparkles on to butterfly wings; there was no grey then... Where did all those colours go?

I said it... and The vintage Fair

We went to The Vintage Fair : there were delights a plenty, so I bought some...
A set of mix and match 'Love' Scrabble Rings and an old mink Butterfly brooch

This Look on

Tales from The Treehouse
Too many pillows and not enough, lined up fluff.
Movie in the dark then count to see when we can see, what we can see.
..Buns and words and love.

Pretty Prints from the Woodlands...

... I finally bought a couple of prints from one of my favourite artists...

Tales From The Treehouse

I bought one for him, because I like him. I'm the bunny. One day, on my future walls will be this and more art/prints, on another will be butterflies, dragonflies and moths... curiosities beyond; A place to fall away, be and dream, it's not about stuff, or having, but about whatever it wants to be, a secret place to share: beautiful. Because maybe, if it's even possible to stop ourselves from being attached to others, another, on one, the one, we are left with just ourselves, be everything, anything all at the same time, not being able to even give, all the while saying nothing, it's heavy, like one of those dreams where your feet can't run and your voice stays inside. Maybe then we revert back and keep going until were living in a dolls house or a fort in a field. Even if they aren't real places and just in our minds. Both are the same and I'm afraid I'd rather ... no, I'm just afraid. My fish can't breathe, the line won't catch, the bread sinks to the bottom and everyone is hungry.

Jack and Jill... fell down a hill...

Jack and Jill dresses now in my etsy shop with matching Knits
* Location Photos by Twitch Photos *

Tales from the Treehouse...

There was a fire outside the house of boats, bands music and a film all going at what seemed to be once, said the bottle of cocktail. Couldn't move away far enough, my face : melting chairs... then it was the next day and we missed it because we changed the speed of time. It was light for only 5 minutes and we could see each other the whole time. Another night, next night, slowly, there was a man made from pure sinew and banjo juice... my brain was lost but I was there, I know that because my hangover ate a whole pizza. Today a day of knitting and photos with room for Frozen Planet where penguins speed up time too - we must be penguins. Adventure time tomorrow/today/later...

Girl of my Dreams... Lula

* Polaroid From Lula Magazine Issue 2 *

* Cover print from Lula Magazine issue 1 *

One day walking through eBay I came across an A5 Kirsten Dunst embellished Lula Advertisement postcard from 2007, I was trying to get another Lula fix after I'd bought all the back issues I had previously missed, so I bought it and cyber-bumped-into Becky Smith, the creative director of Lula up until issue 8, we got to talking and now I have lots of Lula goodies arrive in the post, some of which are these prints and polaroids that now live on my wall. I'm a happy bunny and so is my wall...

* 3 more Lula Polaroid out-takes *
More tales from the treehouse:
Pool in a favourite unlikely haunt and there's me and there's you and we're talking about things that matter and I'm happy. I won't try to keep the pirate that wants to run away to play in fields in the dark with twigs for breakfast, as much as I'd like to - because that would be selfish. I do like mornings now though and falling asleep and all the things we do in between. Witness me fall. But not stupidly this time, not blindly, just completely.

Horses, Some With Bells On...

Pretty new pics by Twitch Photos of my Unicorn and Carousel Horse Dresses

...As I try to not hope I stop to think, and then stop thinking. Maybe this is fleeting, like what they say about ships, but with less of the innuendo, or perhaps more, whichever way it's looked at from. At least it stops the stress of wondering, because this way there's nothing to wonder about. There's just the now, the bit they say we should live for, but sometimes, secretly, I think in that time and I hope. It's not healthy.

Too Much Cake... and eating it all

There was far too much cake at our tea party, the paper hearts on the walls
kept falling too.... on top of the sleeping pigeons...

* Tea Party Dresses now in my shop *

I was back for a while and fell down the well at last, at least, I'd been thinking about it for a while. I think I'm sad to come back in a way as I was sad to leave at first and now I truly am in two places two minds too much. I'm fine everywhere now though which is nice. I'll go back whenever I'm not here and be here when I'm not back, maybe that is perfect after all. There will still be a pretty house- wherever I am. My room follows me around and the other night it was filled with you. Tonight we turned the windscreen to paper; painted with the tips of our fingers. Followed the short cat and left too soon... I will watch Wonders of the Solar System now... and maybe fly.

Some Birds are hard to cage...

Bird Dress in my shop now, photographed beautifully by my flower Danniella Jaine

Can't wait for our play date when we will shoot each other : Bubble guns at the ready!


It's all going on, always the same and they prove what we were talking about. But I fear there are two extremes and I'm forever wanting to be in the middle and forever struggling to or from one end of this teeter - tatter. Playground talk again. I think we understand; the same page, but then I go back to what I was saying before. Do you know that it was beautiful? ... sometimes they want to keep beautiful things and make them last forever, maybe this time they will be you, because it's definitely me - but I'll never tell you that, because we said they think the impossible. We stayed that way for years in a few hours... felt like home. I miss that.

The photographer stole my breath: they do that sometimes

I came across :
and now I'm in love
Go see her work because it's beautiful...

Last night I stayed awake until this morning. It started with a loose end and finished with my camera remote. I customise things now more than before. Up-cycle. Outfit on LookBook, Garments on Etsy. Seven places at the same time non have meaning, and my head spins.... I'm also in the middle of joining Model Mayhem - as Photographer/Fashion Designer. Not sure if it will find me more prettiness in the world to collaborate with, but we shall see. That word just got stuck; sometimes people aren't what they say... recently, sneaky, bleak. But let's not talk about that now. I was wondering about acquaintances too : there are many he said... then sent me a photo of the sky where I got lost before. But not friends he said. I get it I said. he said I said. We said. Then I stopped talking. I should go next week, unsure why. Either and both the same until I make things up, believing them gets me into trouble. A song just came on; I was five again. Impossible, then sad. I want to get lost in the sky for real, but for now my room is what will keep me; there's no-one in there and right now I like that.

A Tale of Two Witches...

Mirror Mirror on the wall... Two new Black and Gold dresses

photographed by Hanna Daisy :
now in my Etsy shop :

I had a little sleep that lasted a couple of days, it wasn't like in the fairy stories though; there was no-one leaping from the wings transferring a spotlight or anything. It was more like the radio downstairs got louder... or my alarm worked... or my dream was a bit too freaky to stay in... or I was a bit too freaky for my dream to keep me. So I managed a biscuit breakfast and came back upstairs where the internet stole me and still is ...

I became obsessed with 'lookbook' and made a profile :

...tomorrow I will be productive; work on the Garden Party dresses for the shoot Wednesday with Mike Blowman... looking forward to seeing the Tea Party shots from O-Ten Photography and the Self Portrait Bird Dress series from Danniella Jaine... I also have a magic dress on it's way to me which I can wait to get into... I'm not tired yet but I'll sleep now, because I should.

Alicia Fairy made a Flutterbydaisy Fairy...

From rag doll scraps of Flutterbydaisy dresses was born a beautiful doll, and from photos of dolls will come life sized dresses; a pretty collaboration...

Take a peek into Alicias world:


I went into the past last night, I waited by the door, I looked through the gaps in the fence; I got stuck. Sometimes I get stuck and then realise half an hour later. The birds didn't fly from the grass because I was that still... I don't know what or who I was waiting for but the idea made me cry. I didn't see anything through the gaps and no one came. It took me a while to get to sleep because it was already the next day and I was thinking of all the past times. The birds were talking, but not to me. I think I must have fallen asleep then and I know I dreamed of you, but your not who you think, it's not you and neither am I. It's someone else and so am I.

Back where it's lovely

Back down in London where it's lovely... Missed everyone so much. Its great to hang out with David again and see Fable getting bigger - he's a tiger now! And to live in The Big Red with Michael and Sylvia (and pass out in a Foyer) big misses, go to our favourite Secret Garden hide out with Stephanie followed by a Portobello Road stroll - love my fairy, old time drinking at The Worlds End with Steph before she goes on her journey around the world, come for a picnic visit to Lisa and Marinas, see the fairy Frida and Princess Matilda and catch up with Maria, Tiina, Luna, Erin and Kolli... Funny to bump into Rich on a street in Soho too! Soon, very soon. It seems like before now I was in a daze, of course reality is not my place to be, and Hull far less. Anyway, I like that only I get to write and keep pages of my diary- I would never delete the ones I pen and I don't believe in ghost writers...
Americas Next Top Model 'All Stars' cycle 17 has started : my petal Allison Harvard rocks her Flutterbydaisy dress in ep 1 (will post videos soon)

The Magic Dragon...

It seems forever ago that the dragon was here, breathing, sometimes fire... To me, with me... taking me, and to fields in human form. Sunflowers. Where's the rabbit hole at now? I said, but the dragon can't hear me; he's too far gone. It seems forever ago, but in reality it was just the other day. Same thing. Come take these post cards down...
