pale blue

As much as I am loving lavender right now, I am also loving pale blue. Robin's egg blue, bluebell blue, sky blue, beach house blue. I am trying not to let Easter bunnies and plastic Easter baskets crowd my imagination, although Easter decorations do make me feel happy and remind me of being a tiny Catholic schoolgirl. Pale blue has always been a favourite, though. I have to admit that I was so thankful to Erin Fetherston when I first started hearing her name. Her clothing reassured me it okay for me to wear pastel dresses with black tights, which I had been doing anyhow.

I adore Emily's pretty blue bag over at Some Girls Wander (over the last few weeks her blog has been consistently amazing), and I think it influenced a few recent purchases from Etsy, as well as a number of fruitless searches for kisslock purses.

This blouse from seller leoluca was waiting for me in my mailbox today and I am absolutely smitten. Not only is the colour perfect, but it has ruffles. It's quite flattering, too, I think. Oh ruffles, you work wonders. The seller drew a little bird with "Hello from Berlin!" on the package and it made me smile. I cut it out and put it on the fridge -- it's the little things, folks.

The Etienne Aigner flats from vintagerevolver arrived yesterday, and while it snowed today, I can't wait to wear them out in a few weeks' time. They are darling, and in perfect condition.

Today I discovered my face on a Ffffound post, and it made me blush a little bit. I am also thrilled that Alyson at Unruly Things liked my post on the Book Cover Archive. Books are beautiful things, although this is what I have done to my books. No longer can my shelf brag that I own really important books, which is for the best as I have hardly read most of them.

  3. I love your backwards books! I'm working on covering mine in butcher & kraft paper, and it's taking forever. The subtle color variations of the backwards solution are really nice!
