this time of year

Cold feet, restlessness, tea cups, powdered sugar, quilts, journals and notes, France, wind, songbirds, pointe shoes and pale warm ups, Jane Austin, other old classics, thrift store treasure hunts, reading glasses, letters from people far away, day dreaming, snow snow snow,
tea bags, smoke from a chimney that disappears into the sky, lotion, lace pillows, pressed flower bookmarks, kittens, paints all over the floor, gypsy bangles, hand sewing, quotes taken with tea, all sorts of projects picked up and left undone,


leaving the lights off and curtains open, baking, a knitting book full of lacy tops, wondering what if..., longing to travel, list making, laughter, dark chocolate, red skirts and other bright clothes, telling of dreams

I'm so sorry for not replying to most of your comments, life is still crazy and I'm beginning to wonder if it will ever settle down into routine. I hope you all are well and able to relax some,

Love, Clara

PS: what do you think of my new header? good? bad?

A very beautiful post! The words and the pictures are making me feel faraway, like I'm in a cosy daydream.

Your new header is just as lovely as your old header. ♥

Hi. I found your blog the other day and I must say I absolutely loved it! You write very well. I was reading the posts, and you also want to live in Ireland. And you like Pride and Prejudice too. Well, I live in Brazil and people don't know Jane Austen here. Your blog really inspired me, and gave me courage to make one of my own. I'm sorry if I made any mistakes (I'm still learning English), but I had to say this.
