We don’t have much truck with Valentine’s Day but here are some loves regardless. Have fun whatever you are doing. Incredible image of dancer Tilly Losch 1928 (above) by E O Hoppe via The Observer.
Kenzo always pleases me, headgear from last year. Looks warm! Via Fashion156.

Adore this new print from Lizzy Stewart complete with quote from Lady Chatterley’s Lover. I definitely have a thing for fictional Gamekeepers (remember Scudder).
Sean Bean as Mellors in the 1993 BBC adaptation.
I have been back at the sewing chair for the first time in ages, leaving the seaside has not done wonders for my making. It has been almost a year since we left the island for the city, hopefully I am finding my way again now. Home made Valentine cards and chocolate and beetroot brownies undertaken today, I am pretty happy with the results! Also a little Charity Shop trawling last week which brought me some wonderful vintage children’s books, they are from the sixties and seventies, a couple published in the year of my birth no less. I was drawn to the beautifully illustrated covers but the insides are just as ace.
I am particularly looking forward to reading The Doll’s House by Rumer Godden, I have vague memories of it from childhood. ‘Tottie Plantaganet’ is such a great name for a doll, she is stylish too (see above), reminds me a little of the dolls from the wonderful Le Train Fantome.
