{a charming mix of things}

. . . lately have been receiving many lovely e-mails inquiring about the things that inspire and thought it might be fun to compile a beautiful list of current inspirations, of the things that enchant and captivate and the thoughts that turn into daydreams and the things that flutter, flutter through the imagination -- and so, a charming mix of things . . .

. . . poems on mirrors {via felicity}

. . . natural wonders {one & two}

. . . always, backstage photos {via definitely golden}

. . . topknots {via scout-holiday}

. . . amazing crystal caves {via all the mountains}

. . . a room with a view

. . . smokey eyes & upswept hair

. . . side by side {via pink wallpaper}

. . . origami hearts

. . . gold & glass {via apartment therapy}

. . . chloé {via haute design}

. . . velvet chairs & herringbone floors {via felicity}

. . . and still, socks & heels

{p.s.} wednesday already! how the week has flown -- hope it's wonderful where you are,

Ok it's official...i really have a thing for shoes with heels! I loved the way they looked in the Zac Posen for Target lookbook (as I showed on my blog) and now I'm LOVING them here too! I may just have to get brave enough to try it for myself.

Lovely photos! Thanks for sharing. :)

Hi Roseline...

I don't think I've congratulated you in your feature inside Lucky Magazine, so Congratulations. You absolutely deserve being in the flashlights for running a Gorgeous and GLAMOROUS blog, which I am an absolute fan of. You never cease to take my breath away with all your beautiful posts.

I ADORE the socks and heels so very much, I have yet to try this trend myself. The mirrors with the poems are LOVELY, love to have one of them hung in my home. The room with a view is AMAZING. LOVE-LOVE the smokey eye and sexy and soft updo. Origami hearts are so adorable.

Overalllll, lovely post.

Socks and heels are huge on my list right now, and in fact I'm putting something together just now about the topic! I got chills looking at those French poems on mirrors, and the backstage photos...and the gold...your taste is exquisite:)

hi! I have to say I adore this blog... it's so inspiring :)
Not a big deal, but the first mirror poem is in spanish, by Frida Kahlo:
“Yo quisiera hacer lo que me da la gana detrás de la cortina de ‘la locura’ Así, arreglaría las flores, todo el día, pintaría el amor, el dolor y la ternura, me reiría a mis anchas de otros, pero sobre todo me reiría de mí, construiría mi mundo que mientras viviera seria mío y de todos”.

That's inspiring, no doubt.

magia -- thank you so much! and also for the correction -- had first composed this post with only the bottom {french} image, and had forgotten to change the caption after adding the second image, so many thanks :)

So, so pretty, Roséline! Where do I possibly begin?

I love every single image in this post...from the heels + socks to the unimaginable crystals. Can you believe, I have those same photos saved of the Italian interiors? They're too pretty! I'm going to try the smokey eyes tomorrow and dream of this incredible post...I think it's one of my favorites :)

Wishing you a splendid day,

Oh that's an interesting use for moulding! I'd be afraid the shoes would fall and hit me on the head, though.
