A bit of brilliance indeed! I especially love the last two (paisleys are my drug of choice).

Just checking (because I'm tired and British Roll Eyes) - send out is 9th October, right?

Exactly what I was wondering, this whole not having a universal date writing thing always messes with my head exceedingly x_x

I have to agree with Nostrum, that pinstripe blouse is the one that looks best on you. It looks pretty gorgeous, in fact. I am a pear shape myself, and what I've found over the years is that the best look you can get is the one that emphasizes the bosom. That's exactly what makes the pinstripe blouse work so great - the frills on the chest ans puffy sleeves balance out the rest of the body.

Something that has also worked for me is patterns. I now try to stay away from plain colour, at least on the front. Patterning helps a lot in defining shape, you can start with simpler prints in soft colours if you're nervous about it, but I personally like to go with bold patterns in bright colours  Wink

Another great thing for us pears are the loose V-necked empire waist shirts, like this one, from Macy's:

I was really happy when I found this worked for me, because dresses shaped like this also look really good on us! I never wore any skirts because I felt like a hot air balloon in them, but I can wear these dresses and feel like a princess! You should give it a go  Cheesy
Stay away from over-exposed shoulders. Personally, the thinnest I'll go is the cap sleeve, if by any chance I have to go strapless, I wear a shrug.

You have a really beautiful facial structure, and if you want to keep the length, try layering and a side swept bang to frame you pretty face and have instant and effortless sexyness!

Please forgive my intrusion, these are merely my two cents based on my personal experience.  Smiley

Since it's varnished, I'd just add a couple (or more, if you're bored  Tongue ) of layers of wood glue. You know, the white one. It seals and protects pretty nicely, without distorting colours or anything like that. But be sure to use actual woodworking white glue, the one for papercrafting is too diluted and just pansy. Then when it gets muddy, you can just sponge it off with cold water!

I was pretty amazed at the coffee staining thing. As hard as I try, I can't ever get it right xD And these look so authentically old, it's awesome.

I just got my cool swag from RikaHeart! Check out the goodies:

Here's some ingenuity for you - she took a pair of potholders and turned them into the stargates' event horizon! The rim and chevrons are felt and they're really chunky and cool.

She also made me a set of four double sided bookmarks, each with a quote from one of the four original main characters, and a chevron and stargate charms for me to colour as I wish.

Next up, a set of six DHD dialer coasters and polyclay glyph pins that will go on my cork board straight away.

And these are some amazing old drawings Daniel brought back from his adventures with Teal'C. I wish I could hang stuff on my walls, because these would look so awesome framed, but since I can't, I might turn them into super awesome journal covers.

Thanks so much, RikaHeart!
