The brightest among the Bright Young Things - what the English tabloid of the 1920s called a group of bohemian aristocrats - Nancy Mitford's books are a joy. These coming of age series are what I go to everything I'm under the weather, listless, or want a delicious escape from the dog eat dog of everyday. Shame how filghty the covers are - my fault totally. I'm a sloppy reader.

What are they about:
These comic novels are populated with old world characters, bloodhound chases, coming outs, and the eccentricity of the landed gentry. Think Wodehouse but with veins and arteries, and dirty blood gushing through them. Spiky and intelligent prose marks every page.

Sample this: 'There was the unforgettable holiday when Uncle Matthew and Aunt Sadie went to Canada. The Radlett children would rush for the newspapers every day hoping to see that their parents' ship had gone down with all aboard; they yearned to be total orphans - especially Linda, who saw herself as Katy in 'What Katy Did', the reins of the household gathered into small but capable hands.'

This daybed complete with back cushions and upholstered in champagne coloured silk has been looking so enticing on The Gallery at Moor Park. You can just envisage a crowd of Bright Young Things or a gaggle of debutantes lounging on it in days gone by. At not too far shy of three metres long there would even be scope for me at 6ft 4” to have a lie down when the viewing gets to much for me! The daybed is lot 257 in The Pedestals 24th April Auction.  www.thepedestal.com.

Sun's out so better stay inside for a reading afternoon. Gotta love Noël Coward. #fun #englisheccentrics #brightyoungthings #rainbowpeople #noelcoward #savethepooreattherich
Now, I know it's a little early to be talking Halloween, but we're dying to tell you what we have planned! 
Following our sold-out Christmas party last year, we're working once again with The Cosy Club to bring you some frights and delights for Halloween 2018. 
We're heading back to the 1920s with our extravagant and fatal 'Great British Gatsby' murder mystery parties. There will be five events in four locations - Manchester, Birmingham, Leicester and York. 
Tickets will be limited and are on sale via the Cosy Club website. More details to come over the next few months!

I delivered Lucy’s senior session gallery last night and have so many favorites. We worked a Modern Silhouette mini mini session into their senior session before we headed over to the park for more “traditional” senior portraits. They did not choose their pink glasses to match the fabric, ibut I’m kind of in love with the result. More to come soon on the blog.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you’re interested in your own Modern Silhouette, I only have a few spots left on April 21st. Grab one quickly! Click the link in my profile.

This is the Cleopatra mask and headdress from the 1945 film, Caesar and Cleopatra. It was designed by Oliver Messel, one of the twentieth century’s foremost theatrical designers. This mask forms part of his personal archive acquired by the University of Bristol Theatre Collection in 2015 with an £80,000 NHMF grant. 
Messel’s career spanned the worlds of stage, film, opera, interior design, portraiture and architecture. He transformed the professional status of designers giving them, for the first time, the same ‘billing’ as actors. 
Born in 1904, Messel became one of the ‘bright young things’ in 1920s London, along with others such as Cecil Beaton and Rex Whistler. He received his first theatrical commission in 1925, designing masks for the Diaghilev ballet, Zéphyre et Flore and went on to become the pre-eminent designer of his day. He designed landmark productions including Sleeping Beauty (1946) and Ring Round the Moon (1950). His successful career as a world-renowned designer continued into the 1970s.

I’ve recently tried to recreate my old Fitzgerald piece. I can say I’m 65% pleased with it. It can certainly be a whole lot better. I’m still rusty when it comes to inking so practice is in order. I’ll retry this one on a much larger size of watercolour. ☺️ “Fitzgerald and the Bright Young Things”
