Darling Kate from Kate's Wedding has made my day and won my imaginary hundred gazillion pounds for showing me The Shoes...
Darling readers, please forgive my lack of posts this weekend. There are many things I want to write about and many pictures I want to share but I'm oh so tired, oh so sleepy, those things will have to wait until I have had a long nap. Like three days long.
I am in love with these gorgeous little animals from Tamar Mogendorff, they're just too cute for words.
The Walrus did beseech.
"A pleasant walk, a pleasant talk,
Along the briny beach:
We cannot do with more than four,
To give a hand to each."
The eldest Oyster looked at him,
But never a word he said:
The eldest Oyster winked his eye,
And shook his heavy head--
Meaning to say he did not choose
To leave the oyster-bed.
But four young Oysters hurried up,
All eager for the treat:
Their coats were brushed, their faces washed,
Their shoes were clean and neat--
And this was odd, because, you know,
They hadn't any feet.
I thought I'd share some gorgeous photos today, taken by one of my very favourite bloggers, Felicity at All Things Bright and Beautiful.
I was in dire need of a little cheering up this morning since the sun has gone and it feels like winter once again. These did the trick perfectly.....
I just can't resist the summer sunshine and vintage glamour in these pics! They combine three of my favourite things; black and white, retro swimwear and vintage photographs, fabulous!
Hallelujah and praise the Lord (of fashion), real swimsuits are back. Swimsuits that don't require a full body wax and a week's fast to wear in public.
Wear were they 18 months ago when I was shopping for my first swimming costume since high school gym classes? I searched my little heart out but not a retro beauty was to be found.
...This would look unquestionably ridiculous. But there's something, something about it that leaves me smiling.
These gorgeous little pretties are made from paper, fabric and clay and are indecently cheap, starting at $6. I've no idea how much a fresh flower button hole costs, but these babies will last a lifetime!
"Will God or someone give me the power to breathe my sigh into my canvases, the sigh of prayer and sadness, the prayer of salvation, of rebirth?"
I just couldn't resist posting more of Heather Waraksa's incredibly gorgeous photography, this time from her engagement portfolio.
Normally I'm not a big fan of engagement photos, they rarely seem spontaneous and I can't imagine anything worse than having to pose for a photographer (good job I'm marrying one who generally prefers photographing light bulbs and landscapes to portraits!)
These are the most stunning I have seen though and if I lived in New York (oh, if only) I might even consider hiring her to photograph us.....
