English Muse: Charms...

Monday, February 2, 2009


..for a happy life, as captured through the lens of the amazing Sydney-born photographer Petrina Tinslay.....

1. A green velvet curtain with silk embroidery and trim, with little tassels. A flea market painting of pink roses.
2. White linens, preferably vintage. Red shoes, with rosettes.  A white organza dress.
3. Travel books, to faraway places.
4. Moroccan slippers and a blue silk cushion from India. 
5. Little cakes with sugar frosting. And raspberries. 

Which do you like the best?

(PS--there are even more beautiful things on Petrina's webpage.)

Jonathan Gold! So nice to have Pulitzer prize winning visitors! (And I remember gaining 10 pounds during that murder trial because you took me to the best restaurants in town!) xoxoxo

I love the red shoes. When I saw the photo, I immediately pictured myself wearing those red shoes and swinging on a wooden swing hanging from an old oak tree. A very nice moment:)

So much beauty here and an important reminder of its existence at a time when we all need to hold onto the many lovely things in daily life. Acres of flowers to you.

Vintage white linens and red shoes. . .too delicious not to be a favorite, though you could fill a life with these potent charms.
