golden slumbers



Suggested listening to accompany this post: click here, open it in a new window, turn up the volume, and sing along! And if you want go back in time: try this.





I slept badly last night, and my wonderful man, Mr. Dot, let me sleep while going to the gym @ 6 a.m., coming back, realising the toaster had packed up, going back out and buying a new one, making himself toast, and waking me with a kiss & a cup of tea. All the time I was having dreams of the sea & sand & sky, and picturing a posting of Carry & another guest @ the WEBA awards ('on mothers, daughters, & mermaids')







It wasn't until later that I realised, it's not just Golden Slumbers, it actually segues into Carry that Weight. Nothing like a bit of serendipity to start the day. Carry's gorgeous custom made golden silk dress is from a designer based in Spitalfields, and when I next talk with her, I'll get you his name. If it's Paul, I'm going back to bed, because I'm surely dreaming.

p.s. update: just asked Carry, it's not Paul, it's Amin Phillips, of 'love and be loved'. This is all I can find on him for contact details - a phone number, basically - but watch this space, as that dress is too gorgeous for him not to be hugely successful.

So you have, Miss Bubble, so you have! Just left a msg on your blog. It was very spooky actually - as I was about to leave it, a clap of thunder, my laptop froze up, had to re-start... the wrath of god speaking.

Thanks for adding me!

To Miss Spy (Amy) - just got the designer's name from Carry, it's Amin Phillips but here's still really unknown. He made it custom for her - I remember her saying she was coming to London for a fitting - it looks like he basically sewed her into it.

Amin Phillips does lovely work. For anyone who is in London, he usually has a booth at Spitalfields Market on Sundays (somewhere between Giraffe and Las Iguanas). He has made several things for me including a fabulous winter coat.
