Hi.

Welcome to my blog. Come and stay for a while! 

travel nostalgia and a paisley dress from emily

We stayed in a hotel where Canaletto, the painter, was born. It was tiny for three people but resplendent with a chandelier, flocked wallpaper, and baroque mirrors. It was called - unimaginatively - Hotel Canaletto. I wandered far far away from the tourist crowds. I was led to the place where Venetians actually lived. The calles were blindingly white there. I looked down an alleyway and found myself entranced by clothes flapping on a washing line high up above. I'd never seen washing hung out over water.

Thank you, Emily for the beautiful dress and vintage brooch I've worn in this post! When I opened your package, I squealed aloud and giggled like a little girl. Trust me. I have witnesses.
