Bitch on the Blog

That certain something

Filed under: Beauty — bitchontheblog @ 13:26

I have weaknesses. Two of them are boxes and frames.

A frame frames? Not necessarily so. A few years ago I bought a frame because it was elaborate. Think Louis Quatorze, big shirts, wigs infested with fleas. That sort of frame. It hangs on my wall. Empty. Nothing to detract from its hideous beauty.




  1. I love the idea of an overly adorned frame with absolutely nothing within. I can only imagine the awkward moments and comments it instills when others may look at it – devilishly fun and perhaps you are on to a cutting edge trend in interior design!

    OK, so now tell us about the boxes thing…

    • Spot on, Phil. I can tell you are married to an interior designer. I have some REAL art hanging. What do people latch on to unless they can’t take their eyes off the two olives in their Martini? Exactly. The empty frame. You can’t beat it for all of £9.50 it cost me. As bargains go.

      Boxes? Now I am all bashful. As my ex sister-in-law (she is nosy for our greater good) once remarked when my love of boxes came to attention: “You are a bit secretive, Ursula, are you not”? Am I? I don’t know. You tell me. I like boxes. They are useful for storing things.

  2. Would you like me to send you a photo of mine? It will be more hideous!

    • Please do. Light relief always welcome.

  3. You can always stand between the frame and the wall…..just think: you can look to right or left, 3/4 face, full face or turn your back and look seductively over your shoulder (winking of course). If youwish you could wear different hats or even masks…. The question arises as to whther the frame would enhance the picture(s) as that is what a frame is supposed to do.

    Last week I saw a series of three “portraits” . They were Charcoal and mixed media and were “nape view”. Very affecting and very effective….. can see them now…. no frames though!

  4. Boxes….. I have a box (unless it has been thrown out) that I’ll leave for you in my will….. you will have to find out how to open it before anycontents can be revealed!

    • Thank you, David. No one has ever left me anything. Not because they didn’t want to. But because there was nothing to leave. Next time round I’ll choose my relatives more carefully.

      “Find out how to open it”. Well, David, there is an explosives disposal expert I know. I can’t risk my face till they bring veils back into fashion.

      How charming: A box. Content not known. Please don’t die soon on my behalf. I can wait.
