Dream world

I Love these beautiful otherworldly photo’s by photographer Ann He, very ‘Midsummer nights dream’.  They are from a fashion shoot called ‘Runaways’, visit her lovely blog Dolor haze to see more.

Vintage Vogue covers

“I could see you in a Sussex teashop,

Dressed in peasant weaves and brogues,

Turning over, as a firelight shone on brassware,

 Last years tea-stained Vogues.”

     John Betjeman


Whilst beginning the lengthy process of sorting and packing up all the things we own before we move house in April, I came across a little (tea-stained) gem that I’d forgotten all about;
