My River runs to thee...

My river runs to thee.
Blue sea, wilt thou welcome me?
My river awaits reply.
Oh! Sea, look graciously.

I’ll fetch thee brooks

From spotted nooks.

Say, sea,
Take me!

~Emily Dickinson~

Have a sweet day my dolls

{Dainty Boudoir: Dress - New Look, Flower - gifted}

Dainty Life Lately

Listening - Rolling StonesPavaneLudovico EinaudiHurts, Yann Tiersen, Hans Zimmer & Brian Crain. {I tend to listen to more instrumental music when I need to relax, otherwise songs stuck in my head & it keeps me up at night}

Watching - True Blood, Dexter, Maison Close, The White Queen, Supernatural, New Girl, Nikita & Castle.

Eating - 'Pirate soup' made by my husband, cheese, fruits, yoghurt & lemonade ice lollies.

Writing - A poem for a picture that I found on tumblr, you can see it here. The words just popped into my head & I jotted them down.

P.S. for this shoot, I had one tourist after the other - even a group of them, stopping to ask to take my picture. One lady even got brave and came right up to us & asked, said she was Dutch, I thought it was super sweet. Now I'm part of their holiday memories forever, which I think is quite precious really!
