Happy Friday dolls!! Yes, finally Friday...I for one am beat. As Autumn comes in full force, I am starting to feel like a bear in need of hibernation. I don't even want to think of winter, but I can feel it coming soon. I already bought gloves and a hat, haha. But, what I do love about this time is sitting with candles and a book as the light of the moon streams into the window, beckoning you to come out and play. Autumn is the night time, the moon, the lingering breeze that whispers through the leaves that you don't always hear in the busy day times. Sitting outside, just there, still in the night listening to all the music nature makes most when people are no where to be seen. Beautiful, magical Autumn! Below are just some photos that I love by Irina Ionesco...I hope you enjoy them too. Welcome to all my new dolls here...have a wonderful weekend!
Reading: The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. I have read this many times, but it's one I seem to like to read in the Autumn, it just fits the mood. Adore his writings. I'm also re-reading the works of Baudelaire, Poe and Byron.
Watching: Though, I don't watch much TV, I do love catching up with Downton Abbey (the new season has been fab so far) and most recently, I love the new original British drama The Paradise, seriously, I want to live in the shop :) Also Merlin has come back, so that's a must. Love medieval times & I can't wait for Game of Thrones to come back too :)
Listening: Lately, I've been playing on repeat the recent album from Florence & The Machine, I always love the cinematics of the videos as well. She wears clothes I want to swipe. Spinning the old stuff too, like Kate Bush, The Doors, The Cure, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Stevie Nicks & T-Rex.
Missing: a good night's sleep to be honest. My sleep gets quite broken with my youngest daughter at the moment. She's almost 1 1/2 now, so she can be a little rascal at times and not want to sleep, haha :)
Irina Ionesco, born September 3, 1935, is a French photographer born in Paris. The daughter of Romanian immigrants. She spent the childhood years of her life in Constanta, Romania before she moved to Paris. Many years were spent travelling and painting before she discovered photography. Her work is often described as erotic. These are only just a small sampling of her work, it's a must to discover more. Some of her most famous work is ones taken of her young daughter, but they are also her most controversial as they feature her daughter in atmospheres more suited for older women. I left those out though, just because I don't like pictures of children presented in an older fashion.
