Wavy

Inexplicable wish to buy this jumper and run around in it all holiday with a pair of short forest green shorts. Totally impractical as if it’s hot enough for me to wear shorts there’s no way I’ll be in a jumper, so can only guess that childhood self-indoctrination along the Swallows and Amazons / Enid Blyton lines is emerging again in this city girl. #timeforaholiday

Love these ceramics, both the splodgy insides and the flower pattern. I can imagine this recycled glass plate with its subtle flower design looking stunning for dinners in the garden on summer evenings too.

Never has washing up looked so good. Photos from Pinterest, and The Women’s Room blog.

A little madness

Emily Dickinson. As ever with ED, there are so many meanings, that I could read a sentence forever. But right now, while weighing up whether I should see the ED biopic A Quiet Passion, I’m just enjoying these madly extravagant coiffures and bonnets.

Twinkling dark

Last year I went on a walk round town as dusk was falling and as the town was lit up. As it’s still the 12 days of Christmas and time to enjoy a sparkle or two I thought I’d do the same. ThisĀ is a flurry of snapshots throughout the winter months, but I still like a good wander round and through town.
