This is where I get to say anything I feel like saying and you get to agree with me.
We will also share stories and chocolate if you have any.
Naps are also encouraged, if shopping is out of the question.

Spring shopping

They say Spring will be here soon.
They say Summer will be here soon.
I say it is still freezing  cold out and I am heartily sick of wearing boots and scarves and gloves and a coat.
But I still have to remember the sunblock .. aackkk !
There is nothing to do but go shopping and have tea in a cafe.
Poor me.

This feels like it is made of tissue. 
It will be my dream blouse when the humidity is as high as the temperatures. 


 This feels like I am not wearing anything, it has no shape, it just drapes.
 I will be thankful for this come December, January.
 I have a bag very much like this, same colour, not quite as big. 
I will carry it and enjoy the girliness of a pink handbag.

In the Kitchen





             There would be no excuse for not being a good cook in one of these kitchens.

Decisions

I will probably have a mental meltdown when we finally move and I finally get a new house with a kitchen to renovate. 
I have been collecting photos of kitchens I really like  love and it will probably be impossible to make a decision.
This one is in First Place so far :

Puttin' On The Ritz

This is Kate Moss and friends at the Ritz Hotel in Paris.
The Ritz is closing for renovations.
For 2 years !!
I have to wait 2 years ??
Hopefully I can wear something a bit less .. shall we say Over the Top and there will be no tiny little dogs in the new rooms.

This is for you ~

This is for all the people I’ll never meet. 
This is for the person I might have kissed had I taken a different subway line on Saturday and the person I might have been if that boy hadn’t broken my mother’s teenage heart. 
This is for the people I would have loved if last winter hasn’t been so cold and for the city I would have called home if I had written haikus on napkins and carried pens in dress pockets and in the knots of my hair. 
This is for who I was, who I am, who I might be. 

This is for you.

Dog Days

So I was daydreaming about living in a house in the country and having a little cat and a dog.
Then I thought 2 dogs might be good.
Then I saw this photo.
I guess a larger house might be in order, maybe a barn ?

A Book



You can't get a cup of tea big enough or 
a book long enough to suit me.
