Happy Birthday Queen Elizabeth

Sitting down with a cup of tea and handwriting invitations in the grainy darkness of late afternoon for an upcoming dinner party.

Scrumptious! Most especially the hand-written invitation thing. Something SO lacking these days...

Who on earth lives like this? Who sits down and handwrites beautiful invitations while eating some perfect patisserie confection off a gold plate, drinking tanned tea out of a clear cup in front of a gorgeous flower arrangement that's not really an arrangement at all but just one pink rose in a vase, yet looks so divine.

Do you really live like this on a day to day basis? I adore your images and you clearly have a fantstic eye for colour and design. But does any part of your house look normal? Like, not a potential part of a magazine?

I'm sorry, but it almost seems to infuriate me how beautiful everything around you seems to be (at least from your photos). It's a good thing I only look at your blog and see snapshots. I would probably die from beauty overkill if I ever came to your house as lovely things make me too emotional.
