Vantage point...

Looking down on this lovely table scape makes a mug of pale pencils the perfect crown to the perfect book {catch a glimpse of Nesting here}. The sidebar of grey tights, tan heels, and a {glamorous} red manicure is pure luxury.

Unbearable lust...

This room is beyond delicious, nearly unbearable. The ceilings are so lofty, I could nestle all my dreams in this space, right between the intricate molding and vintage theatrical seats. Sigh.

Lithograph layers...

Some beauty is unexpected. Beautiful onions are unexpected. This chromolithograph plate print {by Ernst Benary} is available at the Royal Horticultural Society. It's variegated, saturated, and savory.
{Spotted on Automatism.}

Exoskeletons and pocket watches...

As you may remember, I have a lust for beetles. All six graceful legs and a single glossy exoskeleton. Combine my insect imagery with contrast, vintage wares, typography, a pocket watch dangling gracefully, and the amalgam is bliss. Black and white beetled bliss.
The Chalcosoma atlas print from Hagedornhagen is worth coveting. The glimpse of gorgeousness on the right hails from Annaleena's Hem {spotted on Lotta Agaton, the loveliest place of online real estate}.

Webbed feet...

The combination of industrial iron components, filtered light, beautifully destructed walls, and webbed feet is wildly enchanting.

Ruffled Romance...

May Saint Valentine lend you enough {ruffled} romance to bound around the room.
This hopeful glimpse of a lovely afternoon was frolicking here.

Two lovely links to devour today:

Pick Your Cupid {Hipster Cupid? Yes, Please.}

Kate Spade Valentines {Free love notes to share...}

Love affair...

The combination of mustard yellow ruffles, a vintage dresser, royal blue, and brass details is a delicious love affair to remember.
Apparently I am addicted to playing match maker between the styling of Emily Henderson and gorgeous photography with hues of complementary colors {the top image from Liebling Shoes was lounging at Solid Frog}.

Rolls of pattern...

Another glimpse from the gorgeous portfolio of Line Klein, this heap of patterned paper with a dew of soft light is lovely.

Thoughts in chalk...

This confection of chalk perfectly describes my sentiments.  When Spring comes fluttering around again, I will start a love affair with this skirt and these flowers.

Completely complementary...

Today I am craving the crisp and vivid taste of complementary colors.  Blue velvet tufts and camel leather should satiate my pining, especially after I soak in the allure of patent blue shoes and a gleaming gold coffee mug.

Succulent sentiments...

Pomegranates.  Succulent, sultry, and saturated bliss. Vivid globes bursting with an abundance of sweet seeds, this bulbous Himalayan fruit symbolizes prosperity and abundance {and pure beauty}.
{This gorgeous photograph was spotted at From Me To YouClick over and devour Jaime's wildly talented lens.}

Merci beaucoup...

This is where I bow my head in shame.  I owe an immense amount of gracious gratitude to a handful of lovely souls, and it is {long} overdue.
These beloved blogs shared generous, generous {and gorgeous} giveaways with me - a confection of hydrangeas from Ann {PlumSiena}, a bound book of muses from Gaelle {Decoration 'Till The End}, and an adorable print from Karine {Bodie & Fou}.

And even more gratifying, these ravishing ladies bestowed flattery upon elle oh in the form of {undeserved} awards... 


Thank you endlessly. I am blushing and completely humbled.
