Illustration Friday 'Old Fashioned'

When I was a child I used to love trying on my grandmother's evening gloves. I wore back lace gloves of my own in the eighties as soon as I got the chance! They really add a touch of glamour don't they?
Thankyou for your kind wishes of sleep for me yesterday, they worked! The funny thing is, I've noticed my drawings over the last day or so have birds and people with their eyes closed. (Hmmm...I think this says something!)
I mentioned a give-away a few days ago and I haven't forgotten, I shall do the post very soon. :))
