Birthday Carrion

 Well it's a Happy Birthday to me and Marilyn Monroe, boy do the years fly by now. It's my second birthday in our own home I am so grown up now! I still feel 15, anyway today has mostly been old movies excess amounts of pasta, chocolates, bucks fizz and flowers, I haven't eaten the flowers.

This dress I bought last year from Spitalfields she's in a rather sorry state and I thought I would never get to wear her as the bust was so narrow, but my Aunt noticed that the bust had been stitched up oh yes, I unpicked it and low and behold it fits aslong as I don't breathe too hard aha.







And this is by far my favourite gift my very own piece of taxidermy he is a Carrion Crow and I love him, I don't know what to call him yet, Edgar, Vincent, Ichabod - any suggestions welcome. I have been spoilt rotten, I will show you my gifts later on in the week! 







Inca isn't quite pleased with our new addition but hopefully she won't maul him!
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend

    Jaysus, woman, you are so fecking gorgeous, and that frock is to DIE FOR!!!
    I'm rather fond of taxidermy; I have a friend who does crazy mixed up taxidermy, I really need to get around to buying one of her pieces! Your darling crow is just lovely. I'm sure Vincent Le Crow would be a splendid name.
    Happiest of birthdays, you just keep getting foxier! XXX

  8. Happy Birthday! You look amazing in that dress, and what a fabulous gift, he looks just perfect perched on your mantle, I am sure Inca will grow to love him too, or at least ignore him admirably! xx

  12. My goodness, that gown is heaven on you, and I love the flower accents. Also, what an amazing gift to yourself! If you haven't already named him, I'd go with Edgar (too obvious? nah). Happy belated!
