Petits Détails...

I'm feeling really inspired by these images...
C'est ce que j'aime le plus...
Des petits détails qui donnent un sens, qui racontent une histoire
ou tout simplement qui interpellent celui qui regarde.

Seasons Come and Seasons Go...

My photo - taken on one of my many walks last week...
When the trees their summer splendor
Change to raiment red and gold,
When the summer moon turns yellow,
And the nights are getting cold;
When the squirrels hide their acorns,
And the woodchucks disappear;
Then we know that it is Autumn,
Loveliest season of the year.
by Carol L. Riser
I'm finally back, it feels like Autumn is finally here,
and I am one happy lady...
I hope you are too !

Déco. d'éte...


Les trésors de chine s'accumulent dans la maison,
entrent en scéne tandis que d'autres
partent en coulisses,
petit à petit chaque chose trouve sa place...

Love at First Sight...

My first encounter with Suno NY, by Max Osterweis,
was when I read an *article in the New York Times,
way back in February, about him and his use of kanga and
african print...
I love, love, love his modern take on vintage prints
with stunning effects...
- lots of mixing and matching, clashing and more clashing,
and some african print thrown in for good measure...
more photos here
*"Suno is the result of more than a decade of collecting textiles
during trips to Kenya.."

Sometimes i love to cook,
and sometimes i love to watch

Sometimes i just want to hide under my quilt
and sometimes i want to leap out from under my quilt...

Sometimes i want to be with lots of people,
and sometimes i just want to see noone and be alone

Sometimes i think outside the box,
and sometimes i don't know how to do otherwise

Sometimes i think i can,
and sometimes i know i can...

Sometimes I want to escape for a day...
but I always want to come back!

Sometimes I forget how lucky I am.

Do you have a sometimes?

"The work goes on, the cause endures,
the hope still lives and
the dreams shall never die"

Dreaming is just about all I have time for at the moment, other than work,
hopefully I'll be back posting a little more regualarly and
catching with your delightful blogs soon...

My Style...

The concept of true style is mind-boggling to one and all.
Even if we try to dissect it,
we never come anywhere close to actually attaining it.
The majority of us think it's just a matter of buying the latest,
freshest clothes on the racks and copying exactly what the mannequins
are wearing...
Of course, it isn't, and never has been, about copying others,
whoever they may be...

I love this definition of style by Gore Vidal
“Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say,
and not giving a damn.”
What is your definition of style?

Love to Love..

the iconic Citroen 2CV
(launched in 1948 at the Paris Motor Show )
by Citroën Guy
I had a blue convertible one when I was a student in London and
travelled the length and breadth of the UK
and Europe - slowly but surely
(they're surprisingly robust)
A friend of mine calls it a "marmite car", i.e
you either it love or hate it !
See here
for a fun video which is well worth watching for a laugh...
I'd love to know what you think...

Sailing into the Sunset...

well, not exactly, as we'll be leaving at dawn, but
I thought it sounded good...

We're taking a break
- off sailing for the week -
à bientôt!

Who? Me?...


5. I have an incredible amount of patience for some things,
and absolutely none for others...
4. I love the aroma of freshly ground coffee...
3. I have a special, unshakable, deep-rooted love
for Paris...
2. I don't like people with no sense of humour,
I've no idea how to
relate to them;
I find they take themselves too seriously...
1. I’m more interested in ideas than what other people
are doing in their (private) lives...

A Happier World...

Image: Côté Sud
If every life learned to share
A happier world we would have
We could share our lives
And share our thoughts
Without any kind of recrimination
We could share our love
With all the strangers
That may come our way
Around the world
Making new friends wherever we go
If sharing was not just a dream
Paradise at our feet
Would unfold
There would be no more poverty
For every crust of bread, we’d share
We can only dream that one day
Many hearts will beat as one
Many minds will think alike
No more terrors will strike discord
And sharing will become the word
David Harris
