{a new week & moments of repose}

. . . lounging about on a monday morning must certainly be one of the greatest luxuries, and that is how the day began, the sun streaming through the gauzy sheers, and after, the café and the shops, dinner, [all of us together again], a glass of proseco and conversations long into the night, and today, it’s another dinner a little way out of town, and had nearly forgotten how wonderful it is to have these beautiful [nearly forgotten] moments of perfect repose . . .

  • This blog is a moment of pure beauty… your aesthetics inspire me more than you’ll ever know. I choose the colours and the mood of my inspirations with lots of things that I see around here (such was the case with the colours of my Christmas…)
