Oohhh a million thanks have to go out to Julie Richard and her beautiful blog Shelter, without her I would not have seen Minnie Mortimer's beautiful home. The photos are from Vogue but I don't remember ever seeing this house. I am always a sucker for a home with beautiful bookshelves and lots of interesting books filling them! Enjoy.
I didn't have to go in to work today, so I am sitting in the sun enjoying a good book. I really couldn't ask for a more lovely morning. This photo posted last week on Shelter grabbed my attention right away. I love the outfit and I love her dozy state. Happy Monday!
This colour scheme, from a very sweet birthday party, featured on Shelter inspired me. It is getting towards February, where pink and red are colours of the season. Whether you love or loathe Valentine's Day, I do always enjoy the injection of colour in a regularly gloomy month. Anyway, back to the sweet shades of pink and red . . . .
Michael Penny featured these Emerson Made flower accessories on his blog today. I love the soft pink and yellow combinations. I featured Emerson Madehere and here after discovering Emerson and Ryan's work through A Cup of Jo.
This is the Silk Betty Layered dress from Banana Republic. It's actually available in a Dark Steel, but I just love the Deep Rose shade. It makes me think of bright bursting Peonies in the spring!
It may sound silly, but I'm a sucker for really good pens - kind of like how Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks talk about bouquets of newly sharpened pencils in You've Got Mail. Maybe it's just a common teacher trait. Anyway, these Staedtler ones are my absolute favourites. Linking this in with my desire for all things poppy and pink today, I had to go buy a few this afternoon . . . .my pink one had died from overuse!
Last but not least, I've always loved the soft and subtle touches of hot pink in this Domino Magazine feature. I stumbled upon it while scouting through this feature on Apartment Therapy.
The Grinch and Max . . . I will be watching this duo when I get home from the Christmas Eve service tonight. I still have some gifts to wrap and we always host dinner on Christmas Eve so it will be a lovely night! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
