scenes from my walk home

weeping trees,
rusty old fences,
crumbling tombstones,
leaves flat on the pavement

Full to the brim

the early sunsets
were somewhat unsettling
but it is now
starting to grow on me

who can say no to
early-bird stars?

criss crossing electric lines;
a little buzz for you,
a little buzz for me

"we have completely sold out of this item"

Sold out.
completely even.
I am one for drama
but this is one dramatic effect
I could do without.
kinda depressing,
(kinda as in utterly devastated)
as if I do not purchase
this gem, this jewel, this star of a top now,
my savings will be cruelly
splurged elsewhere,
no doubt on something
very silly (sake anyone?)
and not as heavenly as
this gloriously
assembled piece of fabric.

Oh woe

these ones from Dusen Dusen
are great, aren't they?
I've been buying nothing but
vintage leather satchels of late
and they are oh-so charming and
I love them to bits (quite literally)
but I miss the comfort of
being able to have straps
on both shoulders
with a zip
securing your treasures inside

you can run
and skip
and jump
with them on
without a bag
bouncing up and down
on your side

oh the joy

i love waking up to the sunlight
peeking through the blinds

biscotti for breakfast
recipe here
oh-so easy,
I just swapped the plain flour
to wholemeal and
added pumpkin/sunflower seeds.

and newly acquired
owl friends!

enjoy today,
hope the day is bright
and kind to you

Messy hair.
Bare legs.
Droopy eyes.

Raspberry jam on thick, grainy toast
Juicy peach

I love breakfast.

A time alone with your thoughts,
your memories
your dreams

hello me

i do love winter

the crisp cold,
thick winter coats,
blue misty mornings,
even cold toes

but summer here
is truly something very

the photos are from
our holiday house out west
we go every summer

it takes less than two hours
to get there
but it feels like a different world

i miss the clean air

Wool blue coat by Vivetta S/S 2010


the mornings
tell me so


forgive me
I am terribly shy

Anna is my name
I'd love for it to be
