We Will Not Grow Up ...


We Made A Little Video
... A Deadcuts / Flutterbydaisy Collaboration ...
and here it is : Deadcuts - DK :

Made with love by Mark and Natanya
... The Alice Dress from the video is now hanging up in my Etsy Shop waiting for someone to give her a home, preferably in an old worn out closet which has magic doors to hidden worlds ...

... She has been hand dyed, tea stained, and covered in stamped black butterflies. 
The back is corseted and the straps tie up in bows

I love our new little video so much I can't stop watching it - I'm all lost inside - definitely not growing up anytime soon - I'm all floaty in Peter Pan and Alice Land
 ... Here are some creepy stills I caught ...

Our inspiration, if you haven't already guessed was Childhood, but that creep spooky kind you find in the eyes of old victorian dolls.  We walked around The Childhood Museum here in London for hours stealing away lots of footage with our phones... I took photos too, and at one point my camera started to flash on its own taking photos of a painting I was vaguely pointing in the direction of; we were definitely being played with.  

"...Ring a Round The Rosie...
a Pocket Full of Posies... 
Ashes! Ashes! 
... We All fall Down..."

There's lots of Childhood inspiration in Etsy Land too...
Here are some of the most recent ones I've stumbled across and loved

...and from Instagram World :
I adore this image so much, I'd love to buy a whole series, frame them and put them all over my walls.  I think this lovely photographer can see what the inside of grown up little girls minds look like. definitely a new inspiration - following, following...

Tales From the Treehouse

And so it goes, rolling down hills and bumping our heads.  But there's not quite enough brown paper to fix this and make it better... so I used candy floss.  Brown paper isn't good for you anyway so I've heard.  candy Floss is much much more effective, and tastes like what clouds looks like from above... no apple a day from that Man with a funny face; I'll plant seeds and grow my own instead.  He can just watch while my beanstalk grows out of control and takes over his office.  That will show him. And I don't even like bread; it's nothing at all like spaghetti...

Being back inside my own mind means I've been back in Etsy Land finding lots more lovely things to share with you all... here's some bits and bobs I found that reminded me of Aqua Marine and Rose Quartz... and what would my blog be without a bunny or two thrown in for good measure?...

(above) My latest Inspiration:

Tales From the Treehouse

...and a long time it's been from here too and then I found myself and then here, somewhere I've never been before, before the thing I thought wasn't so true. But now it's all gone different and new, sometimes upside-down, but always love.

and so it will be, 
forever keeping the waves from going up my nose and drowning me, 
I'll survive, or die trying.
