2022 Armitage Weekly Round-up #17

I’m frustrated. It all started last week when the bathroom light bulb gave out. Mr Guylty replaced it with a new bulb. So far, so good. But the new bulb is much brighter than the old one, and suddenly the bathroom looks so grimy and dirty, something needs to be done. So I was on…

Richard Likes a Good Pun

Here is an IG post from Richard, (red) hot off the press. Nice pun indeed. And what can we deduce so far from this? We are back in shrubbery territory. (Hm. Is that in keeping with a conservative politician?) And some night shoots? To be expected, I guess. But I welcome the sighting of grey…

RA Pocket Shrine 273/? – Lavender

The “5 Item Challenge” has had *just* the effect I have needed. Thanks to the pressure of improvisation, I have felt inspired to get down to shrining. Kate’s challenge items were responsible for shrines 266 and 270. And in round 3 of the challenge, which was opened to new participants, I received an envelope with…

Recent Rescued Comments

Every once in a while there are comments that are too good to be lost in the comment section. Exhibit A: Armitagebesotted is a New York local and could not rest until she had identified the location for the shoot with Kaitlyn Mikayla from last year. Here is what Besotted has to say: By the…

The Man from Rome Trailer Is Here!!!!

[Not sure whether a trailer needs a spoiler warning? But just in case…] And it looks fast-paced and exciting. The book did not read half as breathless and fast as the trailer. Here is the link – hopefully you can see the trailer there, as it somehow is set on private and won’t embed on…

2022 Armitage Weekly Round-up #16

We haven’t had a rainy morning here in a long time, but today is rather grey and drizzly. Meh. Perfect time to do the round-up before I venture out and get some grocery shopping done. It is time for a new round-up header. I went down the edit route this time, throw back to good…

No Joke

Armitage House really exists! Hehe, it never occurred to me that maybe my tumblr avatar (as seen in my recent anniversary post in the embedded first ever post on tumblr) might be mistaken as an edit. I have not doctored that picture. Neither have I snuck out at night with paint and brush. Contrary to…

RA Pocket Shrine 272/? – The Lair of the Silver Fox

Silver Fox? Sounds familiar, right? I recently made a silver fox shrine that was sold in the Ukraine Aid fundraiser. It was picked up pretty quickly, and as a result, I was approached bts whether I would consider making another silver fox shrine in return for an identical price to go into the fundraiser pot.…

2022 Armitage Weekly Round-up #15

The week was really busy for me. Lots of work came in, and I was finally back to writing original pieces for my fashion blog. (It’s way more work but also way more rewarding.) I now know everything there is to know about the best sneakers to expect and invest in in 2022 😂. Yesterday…
