McQueen Monday #5 - Rugs

  Alexander McQueen fashion house has teamed up once again with The Rug Company this year to bring out a line of rugs, wall hangings and cushions. Personally, I would use all the rugs as wall hangings.

Military Brocade contemporary rug made of Pashmina and silk. It is based upon an Alexander McQueen 2001 jacket.

And now the jacket.

It also comes in ivory.

Hummingbird Ivory Tapestry  made of silk and metallic threads on an ivory cashmere background. It can be used as either a rug or a wall hanging.

Here the hummingbirds on a black cashmere background.

Of course it can not be an Alexander McQueen collection without skulls, so here is Black Skull cushion made of hand woven wool. There is also a Skull Gold cushion.

And the skull look would not be complete with out a Skull rug made of silk and wool.

And then of course there is the Monarch Fire silk rug that was inspired by Sarah Burton's 2011 Butterfly dress.

The 2011 Butterfly dress

And matching butterfly shoes

Unreleased Led Zeppelin Music Discovered

 In a Rolling Stone online article that was posted today, Robert Plant stated in a recent BBC Radio 6 interview that he has unearthed some previously unreleased Led Zeppelin recordings, with John Paul Jones on lead vocals on some of the tracks. Jonesy is trying not to have them on the remastered catalog. " " So far he is going to have to give me two cars and a greenhouse not to get 'em on the album," Plant said with a hearty laugh."

  "I found some quarter-inch spools recently," he said. "I had a meeting Jimmy [Page] and we baked 'em up and listened to 'em. And there's some very, very interesting bits and pieces that probably will turn up on these things."

  This comes towards the end of the BBC 6 interview.

In Need of Destressing

  It has been just one of those days where the thought of what the day would bring was stressing me out this morning. It turned out not be all to bad. Yes the seafood salad did help...some. But I am still feeling tense and am looking for some more ways to destress before my Spooky stresses me out some more with lovin's. He is so territorial when it comes to me.

  Anyway, I am starting to look through somethings on mainly Pinterest and that is where I came across this emerald and diamond armlet.

  Then from a friend on Facebook a picture of Samantha, Tabitha and Endora from "Bewitched" put a smile on my face. I always wanted to look like Samantha and act like Endora. Who am I kidding? I still want to look like Samantha and act like Endora.

  Flight of the Bumblebee is relaxing for me, especially if it is paired with 'Ave MAria' and is performed by Yehudi Menuhin as from "Stage Door Canteen"

  Oh I love this picture. I really NEED to get off my lazy butt and work on my roses before it gets too cold.

  Richard Armitage. Smile on my face, thank you very much.

HALLELUJAH! Not a Remake of THE 'Heartbreaker'

  I just really need to say this and tweeting will not work.

  The times I have been on Twitter today I have seen Heartbreaker by Justin Bieber trending and all I could think was was "No! It can't be!" , as in it can't be a remake of THE Heartbreaker. There is NO WAY in Heaven and Hell that Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, John Bonham's estate and Robert Plant have become doddering old fools in their advanced ages and would  give permission for the balls -to-the-walls and stop what you are doing and have sex right then and there Heartbreaker to be covered by someone who does not have a tenth of the talent, in his whole little body that,Jimmy Page had in his little finger when HE was twenty. And I was right...HALLELUJAH!!!
