wednesday dreams

Sometimes I am a teensy bit girly.

I have a fondness for colourful dresses that knows no bounds. So of course, when I stumbled across Pushing Daisies, I was smitten.

Aren't you?

That style is very pretty. You know how understated the word 'pretty' is? I say it very sincerely.

Anyway, in regards to you joining in to read '1984' on my blog, I encourage and thank you, and would just like to say that with a list of favourite books such as yours (in your profile), I think that you and I could be real bosom buddies! And with such exquisite taste, I think that this book is up your allie, Kayla!

I'm delighted that you like those books! They so mirror my own tastes, and I really look forward to being able to share thoughts with you. Have you read any Virginia Woolf?

Bonnie said...

I love love love Pushing Daises, and have to admit I have a little girl crush on Anna Friel. I love her style in the show - from the pretty dresses to the red lipstick. x

I've never seen the show but I love the fashion. I am one of those people who will watch something because I like the designs. This is making me want to get some spring dresses.

i'm totally in love with pushing daisies. i wish it hadn't been cancelled! still, that doesn't stop me from watching the few shows that exist over and over and over...

Deidre said...

oh my what cute dresses!!!

ellie's desk said...

I loved that show! & she's such a wonderful actress.

I loved this show and Wonderfalls too. Have you watched Off the Map on ABC? Of course, its not quite as quirky as these, but I'm enjoying it more than I thought I would.

Mil said...

Oh, another Pushing Daisies fan! We recently got that in France and I ate up every last morsel of it. I loved Chuck's style, too. So light and feminine. Wish I could be her! And be dating Ned, too, but that's another story!

i remember seeing commercials for this show and thinking it looked pretty interesting (though i never did watch it). i do love the pretty, girly style of these images.

When I was younger, I was against all things girly. I'm so glad I grew out of that. Pushing Daisies is the perfect inspiration -- I was really heartbroken when it was canceled.

Moniek said...

I really like it!

Krystal said...

i loved your mary and legs joke!!! haha :) (from last week) I even used it! and those dresses are pretty, I think I officially need colors in my wardrobe :)

vintch said...

such an adorable show:)

lucy and sarah said...

I loved this actress style in Pushing Daisies. Dead Like Me is really a cool show, too..Off the Map is from the writers of Grey's Anatomy ..its doctors in the jungle somewhere...but it has the Caroline Dhavrnas from Wonderfalls. She's made a few French Canadian movies over the years. The one I'm hunting on DVD is THE BEAUTIFUL BEAST that she did with Marc-Andre Grondin. The French liked him so much in C.R.A.Z.Y..they even let him be in a few French movies.

Thanks so much for the note.

ellie said...

Hi Kayla,
Well, for Virginia Woolf, the first book of her's I read was Mrs Dalloway, and I think that it is still my favourite. It is quite short too, in comparison, at least, and the writing style is so beautiful. I would just add, however, that her books sound absolutely beautiful when they are read ALOUD. The sentences are quite long, you see, and the punctutation and bracketted phrases etc. mean that unless you are speaking it and using all the pauses and everyone, some of the beauty and charm of the writing can be lost. No fear, though. Mrs Dalloway has no actual chapters, unlike her other works, but this is so that the book is a single train of thought. It's actually very amazing just how perfectly it is like a train of thought! It flows and jumps and makes lovely observations, all to make you immersed. I really hope that if you do end up reading it, that you'll enjoy it, and I would love to hear what you think, whenever it is that you do! Bad luck about not finding 1984. That is a real bummer. I hope that you can get it out sometime, though, because I have a feeling that it is something you would enjoy. Just a fleeting question... or couple of questions (curious me), what was The Count of Monte Cristo and The Picture of Dorian Gray like? These two books are both stories I have been meaning to read for so long! I think that there is a little bit of thrill in knowing that I might read them when I'm older and enjoy them more... with greater maturity and understanding, you see. But I'm still intrigued! Take care, Book Florist.

Hey again Kayla,
I just realized then that if you would like to read some of Virginia Woolf's writing, I have posted several excerpts from her book, To The Lighthouse (which is arguably one of her most popular), in early March. Why don't you have a little look if you like. I think they are like the fourth and fifth etc. posts.

I'm not one for dresses but you're definitely right about the colours! :)

christine donee said...

completely smitten.

wilybrunette said...

the first season of this show is heaven...as is anna's wardrobe. sigh.

Jessica Lynn said...

I've posted about pushing daisies before. It is my favorite favorite show. I watched it from the beginning and basically died inside when it ended.

becky said...

I haven't seen it but those dresses are beautiful! (And just so you know: the costumes were one of the main reasons I wanted to watch Mad Men in the first place---I was not disappointed). There is absolutely nothing wrong with girliness---especially not when it comes with a heart like yours.

Jenni Austria Germany said...

Micaela said...
