However you take your coffee – may it start your week on a positive note!
May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun.
And find your shoulder to light on.
To bring you luck, happiness and riches.
Today, tomorrow and beyond.
Fleur du Mal Butterfly lingerie
It’s Sunday morning and dievca is watching the clouds drift.
she took a look for silk cloud pattern items (dress, bedding, lingerie) and didn’t come up with much. There is a Moncler cotton cloud pattern dress that didn’t have attractive photographs. This micro-mesh dress from LA Angeles Apparel and fabric by the yard in polyester.
Nothing that dievca is too interested in at the moment – she’s going back to watching the clouds.
dievca found this blog title in her “drafts” file. It was from 2016.
she just went through Master’s Closet this past Monday, 2023.
The sorting/clear out is not an annual activity, but every two to three years.
The process consists of emptying everything out of the closet and drawers. Taking a good look at each piece and sorting into a keep pile, repair pile, rag pile and Goodwill pile. Master loves to get rid of items. Then there is the painful process of buying replacement items either online or in person.
dievca steps in with the second part of the process because Master tends to avoid shopping for replacement items. But if you have tossed 3 faded/stained black t-shirts that you wear on repeat – you will need to replace them.
So, a large Nordstrom’s credit dictated the shopping destination for this year. Instead of Barneys and Banana Republic t-shirts, Master will be trying Vince, Rag & Bone and Frame Denim. Apparently, dievca will be watching a fashion show of “the basics” the next time they meet.
she thinks she will love this Rag & Bone Dexter waffle -weave cotton sweater:
After a few years of taking care of aging parents, COVID and body changes – dievca lost interest in Fashion or even a closet revamp. she’s been coming out of her shell and leaning towards a more practical closet. Things seem to be coming together because she feels like she can reach in to the closet and find something to wear. That’s the point, right?

Master has an apartment with Southern Exposure.
It makes for lovely D/s play in the sun.
The nipple on the cloud looked like dievca’s nipples yesterday,
at attention for their Master.
Isn’t the Good Morning Coffee!
It’s catching up with your Sir or Madam. XO
dievca has a friend who is a Bay City Rollers aficionado —
this song applies to dievca’s plans for this evening!
Honestly, its so bad, its good.
dievca hopes your evening is rockin’ , too!
(If you let it roll. the vdeo following is another Bay City Rollers favorite – “I only want to be with You”)
A spirit duplicator (also referred to as a Rexograph or Ditto machine in North America, Banda machine in the UK, Gestetner machine in Australia) is a printing method invented in 1923 by Wilhelm Ritzerfeld that was commonly used for much of the rest of the 20th century.
The ditto machine used no ink. The user typed, wrote, or drew on a ditto master sheet which was backed by a second sheet of paper coated with a dye-impregnated, waxy substance. The inscribed image appeared on the back of the ditto sheet in reverse. The ditto machine used an alcohol-based fluid to dissolve some of the dye in the document, and transferred the image to the copy paper.
Though other colors of ditto sheets were available, purple was commonly used. In elementary school, dievca remembers that teachers would distribute drawing sheets for coloring or vocabulary. The sheets had been through the ditto machine, which gave purple outlines to drawings, letters, numbers, and anything else needed.
When dievca taught High School she used the Ditto Machines for worksheets – there wasn’t a copier available…old school!
The output of the ditto machine had a special aroma. Students could tell when a class assignment was hot out of the machine by the strength of the odor of the pages. The smell came from the ditto machine’s duplicating fluid, a mix of methanol and isopropanol.
The photo above shows a mimeograph:
The mimeograph printing process used an ink-filled cylinder and ink pad. Documents had to be prepared on a special wax-covered stencil on a typewriter which had its ribbon disengaged. The typewriter thus made impressions in the stencil, which were filled with ink and squeezed onto paper by the mimeograph’s roller. The stencils could also be used with drawings made by hand.

Beers, a spoof of Joyce Kilmer’s Trees (1886-1918)
I THINK that I shall never hear
A poem lovely as a beer.
A brew that’s best straight from a tap
With golden hue and snowy cap;
The liquid bread I drink all day,
Until my memory melts away;
A beer that’s made with summer malt
Too little hops its only fault;
Upon whose brow the yeast has lain;
In water clear as falling rain.
Poems are made by fools I fear,
But only wort can make a beer.

Master was teasing His dievca about “her” music when she told Him about watching music videos on Sunday evenings for an hour because the family dievca was living with during her sports training didn’t have cable. Weekly, at 10:58 pm, this song would come on to close out the music video hour.
The next thing you know, Master is singing the “earworm” for the rest of the day…and dievca is flashing back to being 14 years old~
The Coco de Mer HERA lace line can be found here.
Its interesting that an elegant and erotic lingerie is named after a Goddess who is depicted as matronly.
Hera (/ˈhɛrə, ˈhɪərə/; Greek: Ἥρα, translit. Hḗrā; Ἥρη, Hḗrē in Ionic and Homeric Greek) is the goddess of marriage, women and family, and the protector of women during childbirth. In Greek mythology, she is queen of the twelve Olympians and Mount Olympus, sister and wife of Zeus, and daughter of the Titans Cronus and Rhea. One of her defining characteristics in myth is her jealous and vengeful nature in dealing with any who offend her, especially Zeus’ numerous adulterous lovers and illegitimate offspring.
Her iconography usually presents her as a dignified, matronly figure, upright or enthroned, crowned with a polos or diadem, sometimes veiled as a married woman. She is the patron goddess of lawful marriage. She presides over weddings, blesses and legalizes marital unions, and protects women from harm during childbirth. Her sacred animals include the cow, cuckoo and the peacock. She is sometimes shown holding a pomegranate, as an emblem of immortality. Her Roman counterpart is Juno.

A few years ago Master had major surgery — the morphine was lovely, but it had consequences…
If dievca is ever stuck – just give her coffee. Leaded or unleaded will work.
It wasn’t so easy for Master…
dievca caught up with Master for their Anniversary. she was keeping it simple with a Blush Lingerie “Sweetest Sin” Chamise. The only problem was it was a bit small on the top so her breasts were — lets say— a bit “unrestrained”.
It was a dievca disaster in the making except for fact that Master loved it!
