Things of beauty...

Midweek. Not doing very well on my 'to do' list in readiness for Easter holidays...spending far too much time looking at pretties like these...

Love this ballet shot - waiting for audition...

Vintage Vogue - from 1963. What a wonderful neckline she has...1963 interests me as a year, not least as it was the year that my parents were married and the year that Kennedy died.

The weeping willow in our garden. One of the reasons we bought the house (although their roots are meant to be baaaad news for underground pipes). One year we had to have it 'pollarded' which means to take off all the branches. Boo was so distraught at how it looked, she cried...then went out and wrote 'I love you' on the bark. She is a gentle soul...

Tables laid for friends...

This is for Simone whose whimsy and creative cleverness is behind The Bottom of the Ironing Basket...another incarnation of the Eiffel Tower...she is into Paris at the moment... :-)

Kate Moss...up close...

More door handles...I like the contrast of rust against the blue...

Provencale soap...the best kind...Verbena is my favourite scent.


  1. Oh thank you so much Louise, that was so nice of you :)

    I love the photo of the willow tree - and the lovely story about your daughter - there is something wonderful about a willow tree I always think.....we used to have them in our school fields and we used to sit and talk underneath them in the summer....lovely memories :)

    I do love the Eiffel Tower bag that SJP's so FAB!

    And the soap.....ME TOO....surprise, surprise!!! I think we are living parallel lives :)

    Thank you again!!

  2. We had the most beautiful willow tree at my old family home, I used to look out my window at dreaming all the time. There is something so calming about this gentle tree. P.S. Vogue...vintage - perfect!

  3. wonderful pictures! soon, friend, soon! missed ya! trying to catch up with my fav blogs since i have been without my computer! have a great night! xo

  4. I love the ballet shot, it reminds me of my ballet days!!!

  5. Keep going Louise...I am loving it! Spring holidays..yikes, my son has three weeks off starting today. Not sure how I am going to go with the British system. He is delighted and is looking dreamily at his Wii games while I look at the train schedule whilst wondering which museum would best suit!
