SUMMER REIMAGINED

















I feel thankful to my core
for the gift that is photography.
for time & a quiet house
at the beginning of the week
to breathe, dig inside
& imagine.
on this particularly dim & grey November day,
I fancied gathering my hem 
by the faint window light
& reimagine summer.

ABODE















it's been a while since I posted a home tour,
but here's a very lovely one,
the Philadelphia abode of Marissa Maximo.

FEELING FLORENCE



















we leave our quiet Tuscan country retreat
& arrive in Florence,
where we are met with a barrage
of crowds, noise & selfie sticks. 
we sort of knew what to expect,
but it still hit us hard...
so we sought solace.

let's grab a gelato
& mosey on... 













while the queues to the Uffizi wind away in a never-ending formation,
the Bargello Palace Museum welcomes in
with its hushed, expansive courtyard
& lofty rooms...

















































 then it's back through the crowds
& a dive through velvet curtains
into a church thick in silence, 
the scent of incense,
& a quiet shuffle
of people kneeling to pray
or lighting a candle for loved ones.


















then to a temple of another kind





















the rooms dazzle,
as we pick out a few souvenirs to take home
& stop for refreshments 
at the Herbal Tea Room.

















not sure if it's the heat or what,
but i seem to be drawn to all things rose ~
rose tonic water to splash on flushed cheeks,
a pink bottle of exquisite pink elixir concealed in that packaging
& the taste of rose champagne on my tongue.
(Byredo's La Tulipe crept into the photo for some reason
just to confuse things :))

AN OCTOBER DAY IN STOCKHOLM

















an October day wandering around Stockholm.





















the day began with breakfast at Snickarbacken 7
& a walk around Östermalm. 












then we headed to Gamla Stan,
which always seems to take you by surprise,
reveal another layer of itself...




























we all had an autumn flu,
but the quieter side streets & cafés were a pretty good remedy.






















until next time....

EVENING IN AREZZO




















































wandering the streets of Arezzo,
the suprise of Dolce & Gabbana 
in one of the rooms at a local museum,
the chatter from the open windows of a tiny restaurant packed with locals
 streaming down a tiny alleyway,
always a good sign when trying to decide where to eat.
