as the images unwind, like the circles that you find, in the windmills of your mind...

Good evening, don't know why I have added picture of bunny, other than to say, I have had this little fella for at least 30 years and sometimes you don't 'see' your possessions ... so I decided to dust him off and take his picture! He is such a sweet thing.

As for the title of this post, I heard Dusty Springfield singing 'The Windmills of your Mind' on Radio 2 today... it was haunting. I really wish Dusty was still with us.

Just a quick little post today to show you a few more items that are now in Etsyland.
Another Coin Purse...

Dorothy bag made from monogrammed French linen with lots of texture, lace, silk and embroidery.
Needlecase ~ front... Back...
I hope you are having a smashing weekend...thanks for stopping by. x

Whenever you quote the words of a song, I have it spinning around my head for ages! I am painting at the moment and it's happened again! I rarely listen to music but I do like remembering the songs like this in my head when I am prompted! Music makes me feel sad though - strange?

p.s. love the little bunny, doubt if you will ever see another like him, he's special.

Your lovely new pieces look dreamy. As for your dear bunny... reminds me of the Velveteen Rabbit. I too have a Bunny that I have kept and cherished for 43 years. She has been loved and worn thread bear by myself and both of my girls, while growing up.

The windmills of your mind is one of those iconic songs.. never forgotten and I always think of the game chess when I hear that song.. wonder why?!

Have a good 'un too V..

I heard that Dusty S track too - wasn't it just wonderful! I'd no idea she'd covered that song - one of my favourite films but with Mr McQueen in starring role - oh to have been Faye Dunaway ...
