bright star

























I watched this movie for the first time Sunday night and I must say I'm in love. It's the only movie where I've cried because something was just so beautiful, the story hadn't even gotten sad yet and I was already tearing up. The words that have been in my head ever since I watched it is just that it was poetry. Perfect poetry.

It's been cool and cloudy all week, which for me has been wonderful, I've been inspired to hand sew most things of late, which has been wonderful! It's calming and I love it so much more than machine sewing. Days have been filled with day dreams, tea, quotes, Road to Avonlea TV series, and letters. I hope you're all doing well and enjoy your summer or winter, which ever you're having.

with tea and small stitches,

Clara

PS: Happy Canada Day to all my lovely Canadian friends!

Someone had a post about Bright Star on their blog a while back and I finally got around to watching it about a month ago; I fell in love as well! Not only is the cinematography absolutely stunning, but it is such a beautifully tragic tale. I loved it so very much. :)

Always,

That's the movie about Keats, right? I read about it when it came out and thought it sounded good!
It looks absolutely lovely. I'll have to try to watch it soon! :)

This movie was visually stunning and amazing. So much beauty and romance, but oh so very very sad. It almost couldn't take the end - I knew it was coming, but it made me think of my own love, and it was just too heartbreaking to bare.
