On a background of liver for Luna Jubilee's colour challenge of the week.
Liver ! Childhood memories of slices of tough greyish matter with fried onions on top, served with boiled watery potatoes.
Adult memories of love affairs with alcoholics, their breath reeking of a liver gone bad.
Memories of a cat dying from a liver worn-out.
Memories of lunch in schools and offices with grey liverpaste on rye bread, unfortunately the national lunch of choice in my country of puritan tastes.
Liver ! What is it good for !...Absolutely nothing!
But then again:
what would we do without our liver to keep us alive? Without beautiful dark brown puppies and sturdy Icelandic horses with a soft livery coat ? What would a New Years eve be without a slice of foie gras and a glass of Sauterne, a picnic without a tasty slice of paté de foie ? What would life be without the hue of heart and liver? Nothing...absolutely nothing.
What I'm wearing:
Dress and top: from Just B in mustard and coffee (the Platinum Hunt)
Skin: the glowingly beautiful skin is Apple in natural from Rockberry (the Platinum Hunt)
livercoloured stockings made by myself
The first liver coloured background is there to set the tone of melancholy. Bile produced in the liver was of course believed to be the reason for a melancholy disposition in classical medicine till late in Medieval Europe.
Location : What Next Furniture store , where they have so much good stuff, but also this space with utterly boring furniture from the fifties, which of course is great in its own way.
