Thursday Journal with Neet

 This week the words to conjure with are "Hmm should I answer normally, or should I be sarcastic ?" Lucy on the right has been summoned by her friend Trudy to give her opinion on some dresses that she has her eye on. Trudy is really into vintage clothes and although she has quite a few skirts and blouses she hasn't any dresses. She has picked out four that she has fallen in love with and needs her friend Lucy to give her honest opinion on just two of them, as that's all she can afford at the moment. Lucy is now put in a spot, as what she would really like to say is that Trudy is far too plump and short to wear any of them. Oh dear thinks Lucy " hmm should I answer normally, or should I be sarcastic?" I am linking this to Art Journal Journey where my theme is vintage.

Very good use of the quote for this week. I love your vintage dresses at the top of the page, they remind me of old dress patterns that I have seen. I have a friend who is into vintage clothing and she does lots of charity shop shopping but her favourite place is to go to the vintage markets that pop up monthly. She is always very smartly dressed and matches her whole outfit with ease.
One more to think up!
Hugs, Neet x

Poor Trudy. I can relate to the plumpness and clothes. But I do love your page and those vintage ladies along the top. Great job the way you tied the 2 challenges together. This is such a fun month Wendy. Thanks for being such a super host so far. I look forward to seeing your next page. Hugs-Erika

Another fun piece, Wendy, and a good story to go with it. Have a lovely day, hugs, Valerie

I can also relate to Trudy - love the fun dresses but none are going to look like that on me! Fun images and fun story as always.

My youngest daughter finds the best vintage clothes and always looks totally stylish everywhere she goes. Her house is all vintage too. Very fun to see what she buys, wears, and decorates with.

Another fabulous page for your AJJ theme and I love how you interpreted yours and Neet's chosen quote. The vintage dresses look super but I don't think I would ever have been the right body shape to wear them.
Have a goos weekend.

I'm STILL playing catch up. I love how you used the quote, Wendy. I can see why Lucy would be hesitant to tell Trudy the truth. It's a really great page showing all those vintage dresses, too. Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Art Journal Journey using your theme.
