{happy monday + thoughts for a new week}


grey-mirrored

. . . another summer weekend may have come and gone, but it was filled with french bread and escargots, nights in silk dresses and upswept hair, and a lingering of early morning breezes laden with a beautiful excitement . . . and over morning cups of coffee, reminded of a favourite winston churchill quote:

"A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty."

. . . a wonderful thought for a brand new week, and hope yours is off to a perfect start,
xo

{p.s.} late august, which means a wildly sporadic posting schedule and never quite seem to get into the week until it's nearly over, and so -- many new & wonderful things you may have missed at week's end:
* weekend romance & lovely links
* in the bedroom: only sweet dreams
* photographer: camilla akrans & autumn blossoms
* in the bedroom: crisp linens & scalloped edges

Roséline, I want to walk into that second photo -- it's so beautiful and calm... lovely quote, too, I must send this to my Grandmother, who I love, but can find something negative in everything, and as hard as I try to bring her into the positive, she tries to remain there... this will be helpful :)

wishing you a fabulous start to the week,

xoxo

I loved the editorial you posted last week by Camilla, it's one of my new favorite fashion editorials.

The crystal candelabra is lovely, too. xo

I think you would like Louise Mitchell's work -I have couple of her nighties and they are so lovely - the sort of lingerie women buy for themselves! I went to school with her...

sarah – hello! & a happy, happy monday to you – hope you had a fantastic weekend . . . as for your grandmother, do hope winston churchill’s wisdom helps, even if only a little . . .

{p.s.} yes, quite adore the mirrored console and entire room – both relaxing and elegant at once, which is quite a wonderful combination – also, first image was removed for use in a later post :)
