A Little Light....
























I love outdoor lighting and these are some of my favourite images....

....candles in jamjars, lights in paper bags, hanging lights, hurricane lanterns....

....so simple....yet they create something romantic, special and magical....

....they win my heart every time....

Thank you for all the great comments about my new bag....I will take a photograph of it but might have to wait a few days/or until Paris since my camera is currently receiving some TLC at the camera shop :)

Happy Wednesday!

It's A Love Thing....


....you weren't what I had planned for yesterday....
nothing like it in fact....
....I'd seen your type before but it was never the right time....
but sometimes Destiny steps in and one just has to surrender oneself....
 I spotted you at fifty paces and felt my heart flutter....
 and immediately I knew there was a good chance you would be coming home with me and wouldn't be leaving anytime soon....

....as I got nearer, it crossed my mind that you might be out of my league and I tried to tell myself that you probably were intended for someone else....someone who could take you around town on a regular basis, show you the sights, eat at fancy restaurants and take you round the world travelling first class every time....

....but actually, it turns out you were meant for me....I might even be so bold as to say I was meant for you....
I held on tight to you all the way home on the Tube, sneaking peeks at you when you didn't even know I was looking....
it's only been one night and I just know you're not going anywhere....
we look so right together....even my husband said so....it's quite soon, but he knows we're off to Paris next week and he can see I am in good hands, so he understands....something this right just can't be wrong....

Sometimes love happens when you least expect it....but when it does, you just have to grab it with both hands, appreciate it and truly enjoy it....



I love you my shiny-new-burnt-orange-patent-perfectly-sized-large-bag/holdall from Ted Baker....we're going to have some really good times together....there have been others but I just know we've got something very special....

Happy Monday!!
