{two lovely things: moments of repose}

two lovely things

. . . running around this week, a trillion things to do and it's only just begun, thoughts drifting to memories of the past weekend, the first truly relaxing one in quite some time, and remembered the easy afternoons and two lovely things especially came to mind -- the delightful leisure of a little time at the shops, and most of all, the luxury of waking late and catching up on much-needed beauty sleep -- and so, have taken time to slow things down a little -- falling leaves and late-afternoon sun on tuesday, and today, lattes & butter tarts at a quaint café . . .

hope you're having a brilliant week so far, with time for a few moments of repose,
xo

{p.s.} shall always & forever be in love with the utter romance of coronets & crown canopies . . . more here & here

{also:} recent two lovely things
:
* monograms & pink roses
* october mornings
* mirrors & chandeliers
* luxurious textures

Ahhhh, two of my favorite things. How lovely that you were able to take some much need time to reflect and also focus on "you."
The word repose caught my eye. I wrote a lengthy post a couple of weeks ago about repose of the soul. It was the most relaxing post I've done in a long time. Maybe we should all start writing more of them, short or long, they're good for us.
Always nice to visit with you.
Best,
Lisa

Sounds wonderful. The image of the bed is beautiful.
We all need time to renew.

You make the simplest of things sound so beautiful. That's why I love returning to your blog. Hopefully things slow down for you in the coming weeks.

8 times the temptation with Chanel bags laid out all over. How I wish! And butter tarts do sound like a fantastic mid week treat.
