and see the dawn before the rest of the world. ~Oscar Wilde~

~ Nana ~


Today was the first anniversary of my beloved Grandma's passing. I can't believe how fast the year has gone. My Nan was a pure lady, full of love, grace and wisdom. Every time I looked into her eyes they were smiling, every time I held her close (my) heart was smiling. I think about her every day and wonder what she's doing up in heaven. 

I'd say playing the organ, knitting or getting stains out of everyone's clothing - yep Nan was the Queen of stain removal - Mum would drop off a piece of clothing that she couldn't get a stain out of and Nan would magically make it disappear. What talent! *smiling*

Actually I can smell the aroma of her coffee - listening to the sound of the teaspoon tinkering inside the cup whilst stirring. Seeing her bright blue eyes with so much love making sure everyone was comfortable.

Watching her while I blow waved her hair, plastering her hair using a can of hairspray so her style would last until the next day. 'You need more' she would say! ~

The memories oh the wonderful memories ~ 

As today was with sadness with her passing I was to be given a reminder of her by Kelli from House of Hair and Beauty, Algester that she sold Raven MaD Matte Eye Shadow in 'Jean'. 

The special meaning of this is that I named many of my products after family members and 'Jean' was after my Nan - a special pink as that was Nan's favourite colour. This was also sent with Nan on her way to heaven so that she could always have some on hand.



This is Nan's vintage rose eye shadow ~


To hear Kelli telling me that she sold that particular one really touched my heart ~ I know you're watching over me Nan and thank you dearly for sending me a sign that you really are ~ I know you are reading this and want to say I miss seeing you every single day and love you, love you, so so much ~ feel my arms around you my darling because I'm always with you ~ ~ ~


God Bless and Love You Always ~ Your Granddaughter Margaret xXx ~

Alexander McQueen ~


So terribly sad to even think about Alex not being here but I take solace in the knowing his spirit lives on and always will through his ownership of creativity, flair and the genius of eccentricity.

Haunting ~



Found this pic - can't remember where but I love it!




Mirror Mirror ~







Queen: Magic Mirror, on the wall, who is the fairest one of all? 


Queen: Slave in the magic mirror, come from the farthest space, through wind and darkness I summon thee. Speak! Let me see thy face.
Magic Mirror: What wouldst thou know, my Queen? 
Queen: Magic mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all? 
Magic Mirror: Famed is thy beauty, Majesty. But hold, a lovely maid I see. Rags cannot hide her gentle grace. Alas, she is more fair than thee. 
Queen: Alas for her! Reveal her name. 
Magic Mirror: Lips red as the rose. Hair black as ebony. Skin white as snow. 
Queen: Snow White!
