This weekend I'm so....

....blissed from holiday loveliness.  Like this:

A camellia, plucked on a Christmas walk.

Finding a wonderful new blog, the Little Deer, featuring this beautiful photo of a girl in sunlit hallway filled with paintings, drawings and photographs...And this charm to fight the blues:

Saying goodbye to my friend Liss at Daydream Lily. I will miss her during the several weeks that she's traveling...

But I will think of her visiting this exotic and beautiful place.

I love holidays for the simple pleasure of listening to gorgeous music, like the harp masterpieces played by Catrin Finch...

A sample:  Aria Mit 30 Veränderungen ...

The perfect music to accompany an afternoon of reading. Yesterday, I re-read a few of my favorite stories in this book, Interesting Women...

Andrea Lee writes so beautifully: "We pause alongside the back garden wall, where the stone urns are full of yellowing geraniums. From here, on those rare clear blue days that sometimes descend on Turin without warning, one can see green slopes sweeping down to the city; streets and buildings and factories as if in a diorama; and beyond the Po, rising into the sunlight, the snowcapped wall of the Alps."


PS: I'm very proud to tell you that I took the top photo of the camellia with my iphone camera!

OH that first photo!!!
and I really liked the second, too. When I'll have a flat, I'll have a huge wall, that I'll cover with millions of frames.....

I wish I were going to amazing places, but I can only look at the pictures of them for now and dream.
