soft pink wednesday


Today I'm all for soft and warm shades to make up for the cold weather. I'm not going anywhere as all the children have a cold and the oldest also has a fever. It will be a cosy day under blankets with books and DVDs, home-made Indian tea and oranges on the menu.

I'm still reading Austen's Mansfield Park, an old copy from the library, but not as antique looking as that beautiful Jane Eyre copy in the top photo. It's a 1957 edition of Brontë's book, taken by Candice Lesage, who bought it for only 1 euro! I have to add that I'm so inspired by her photos on Flickr. She has beautiful sets with photos of Paris, books, notebooks, coffee, and all kinds of beautiful things, which she captures with her artistic eye.

Speaking of Paris. You should have seen the smile on my face when I opened the Bright.Bazaar blog this morning. Will was in Paris and shared photos that will make you happy. Promise.

  2. oh, thanks for the link. as a fellow Paris lover I'm very excited about it :)

    how is it reading Jane Austen? my Enlish finals were about Austen, what feels like 150 years ago, and I've never since touched one of her books... I wonder if I should break the habit???

  8. I want that Jane Eyre book too. It's such a perfect edition, plus it's one of my favourite favourite books.
    Hope the little ones recover quickly, although I can imagine how lovely it must be to spend a few cosy days at home with blankets and yummy treats.
    Please take care of yourself and stay well!

  16. I have seen the photography of this beautiful Jane Erye book before but didn't know the photographer so thank you for the introduction to Candice Lesage - I have just spent 15 minutes getting lost in her stunning pictures! How incredible are Will's shots? I'm feeling an urge to visit Paris very soon.... Sorry to hear about your children, I hope they are feeling better soon xx
