In happy news today...

I'm finished spring cleaning - yay! This is the first year I've done it on my own and man is this house big! So worth the effort though, nothing like a deeply cleaned house. My top spring cleaning tips?
1. Don Aslett products are your friend - orange cleaner is my new hero.
2. Squeegees make window and mirror washing almost enjoyable.
3. When you get tired or discouraged and need some motivation watch Gray Gardens or Great Expectations. :P

I finished my Titanic corset remake today - yay! So good to clear something out of the pending pile!

Also my tiara arrived today - yay!! It's so sparkly and gorgeous, I haven't taken it off since it arrived. Life really is better with sparkle.

Oh my gosh, we just watched both Gray Gardens movies earlier this year. Man, they were haunting.

Haunting is a good word. A really interesting look at how distructive selfish "love" can be I thought. I watched the original documentary last year and just stumbled upon the movie at the library last week. It was a lucky find, considering my tasking for the week! :>

I ended up buying that tirara too! It was the only one I felt was simple enough to go with the spotty dress. All the others seemed to pagenty. I hope you don't mind.

And I'm glad there are some sunny things going for you too!

Oh course I don't mind - if Kat and Katherine can rock the same tiara we definitely can too! :> It will be perfect for the spotty. Really it's perfect for so many things, which is why I got it in the end. It was the most versatile. And it's so gorgeous in person!

Just trying to look on the bright side... uhh no pun intended with the tiara. :P
