it seems as though i’ve been gone forever, but i have at long last returned from my european travels and cannot wait to share all i’ve seen and been inspired by! there’s just so much to tell you about: a new business endeavor i hope you are going to go a little bit bananas for (i am over the moon excited to share what’s up and will do so very soon!); my travels and must-sees in france — from lyon, avignon and Marseilles and onto paris, i’ve got quite a few gems to tell you about; and then finally my lovely week in london — what shops to bop, and what bites to eat — there are loads to see and do and i’ll be sharing a few city guides soon (so many photos to edit!).
one of the glorious parts of my visit across the pond was that spring had sprung, and all over France the cherry blossoms were bursting forth and in London daffodils perked up every park. from columbia road market to many paris merchants’ flower stands — kiosks everywhere overflowed with fresh picks and streets gleamed just a little brighter. here’s just a sneak peek. it’s good to be home, and just like spring, i’m rejuvenated and ready to go!

this may well be one of the prettiest homes i’ve seen in a long time. and i look at a lot of houses! this one is actually an artist’s studio and home, and a location home, which means it’s available for film and photo shoots from jj locations, located in camberwell, england. i think i’m just going to rent it, and then refuse to leave. seems like a worthy if not entirely plausible plan, right? it’s something called a double fronted Victorian, with a large, lush garden — not to mention beautifully styled throughout with lovely plants and splashes of pale colors like yellow and green. with all that pretty sunlight streaming through, it feels a bit like a large, liveable greenhouse. yep, i could move right in.
