. . . a wonderful wednesday afternoon and thoughts are drifting, drifting to far off places -- to romantic canals and glass museums, tiny boulangeries and grand archways, a sweet nostalgia for all the places we have been, and all of the places still in our dreams . . .

{p.s.} unbelievably, all of these beautiful photographs were taken by natasha, a lawyer from sydney, australia







new york

Jealous. Not a pretty thing but I am right now of Natasha and her beautiful travel experiences. I am SOOO ready for a faraway dream of a trip! I was trying to pick my favorite photo, and it's very difficult. I'm so drawn to the assisi photo, I think mainly because of the lush color. They're all FABULOUS. Love, this post! Thanks, sweets. xo

I love the first one as it reminds me of my childhood as my Mum had one of those cars. I see they are making a comeback. Very cute but very small. No good for me with kids and a dog.
