News from abroad…

A long lost blogger has returned for a short spell. In her absence I have imagined all sorts of horrors. She writes about the resurrection of her rather wonderful house, which so far has taken …is it two years? Can it be? as if that were unheard of, even obscene. And at some cost to herself and her partner. I'm not just talking financial, but many other ways. So when she took a break from posting I'm afraid I feared the worst, and thought of the many ways this kind of strain can play out in a person's life.

Her prose is rather beautiful, and the parallels she draws are apt and poetic.Well, I won't go on…you must read it for yourself. I, for one, am relieved that her online presence has resumed, however briefly, and look forward to the next missive.

Meanwhile, my new brooches are in my etsy shop. Do visit and let me know if they are your cup of tea!

  1. What a lovely, lovely post to find on your blog. Thank you so much. It's also a good reminder that we do all become engaged with each other's lives via our blogs and that disappearances make an impact. I was also quite concerned when you stopped your posts for a few months and I'm happy you're back writing again.

    And I'm with number one child (I do sometimes wonder whether there is a number two, a number three etc) - I like these new brooches. I like their simplicity and I think the vintage feel is spot on.

  2. Thank you, thank you and thank you.
