No turning back

The year is full steam ahead already, all cylinders fired, cooking with gas, no turning back, one way only, off and racing … well you get the picture! I’m plotting and planning and scheming the year away and it’s still only January – just.

So if I could just keep this momentum up for another 11 months then I’ll be a happy little chick.

Meanwhile I’m still having fun playing with photos. I took a photo of this gorgeous kitchen in all it’s retro green-ness at the Daylesford Makers Market and how could I resist not playing with some fabulous mid-century effects, the first one is a polaroid look, the next one is a David Hockney photomontage look. I especially love the David Hockney styling. Not strictly mid-century, but there’s a fabulous retro, jet-setting, 50s postcard-ish-ness to his work, such as “A Bigger Splash” which looks like the Palm Springs home Don Draper visited in Season 2 Mad Men.
A Bigger Splash, David Hockney, 1967
As luck would have it, this is the perfect spot for another gratuitous Don Draper shot, or two (even more from the shoot here). Sigh. Now that’s a mid-century effect I’m happy to have around for another 11 months!

Margaret @ Konstant Kaos - hmm Don Draper! I am waiting patiently for Mad Men to come back onto TV (and for my figure to return so I can indulge in vintage goodness!).
