1940s Weekend in Pickering 18/10/09

A lovely day out with absolutley wonderful company was had  in north yorkshire with oodles of tea, cake and crumble with custard and vintage bargains galore.

Photographic Fun and Frolicking

With a much earned day of TOIL from work I was able to meet up with the lovely ladies Daisy Cutter and Anna Fur Laxis. Whilst making an advert for a revolutionary new product Miss Daisy Cutter is about to unleash upon the UK market. I was able to take some impromptu film noiresque photographs. I am very keen to undertake more practice and experiment furthr with this this photographic genre.

Burly Burly Burlytastic

M&Ms were very lucky to perform at the Sailors Grave Burlesque evening in leeds on the 21st of October the evening was lovely, great performers, lovely people and finished off with a fantastic pesto pasta from M&S Simply Food and a Dirty Caramelicious McFlurry from McD'S.
I have been lucky enough to perform again at Daisys Peepshow in Huddersfield,.The act I performed well inflicted upon the audience was pretty much improvised with a rough outline as a guide, in true scream movies style I murdered the compere  throwing limbs an organs all around and then told the audience I thought burlesque was easy to which I proceeded with what I could call a burlesque routine. The audience loved it much to my dismay. One thing troubled me all evening about that act, how could the mesh eyes of my mask steam up? Was I so hot I was just to steamy for stage? Alas no twas the glasses I was wearing (I am but a simple fool)

This Saturday the 7th of November M&Ms will be on the road again performing at Sweet Burlesque in Burnley, we hope to whip up a gorerifficly good time.

For All The China Tea Sets in The Land

The last few weeks have had me and the ladies scouring the charity shops across the plains of west yorkshire for all that is chintz, doillie and fine bone china. I have collected a plethora of novelty tea pots, tea cups, saucers, plates, coffee pots, table cloths and many a crocheted tidbit. The best find so far for the evening is a beautiful hostess trolley the jewel in the crown of the tea dance the maids will just love swaying around the hall offering tasty little cakes and treats to all the beautiful guests (how twee).You may ask why do you need all this china and tableware finery, to this I would reply it is all to add to the decor of the 1940s Charity burlesque tea party I am co-hosting on the 14th of November in the not so sunny vale of Huddersfield.

In addition to this treasure hunt of crockery and fine embroidered linen, I have searched for raffle prizes, tombola items, created  wallet ration books, been loaned decorations from B Authentic, and booked a variety of  wonderous entertainment for the evening. To add to this there will be stalls at the venue selling vintage wear, jewellery and giftware.
