Shadow is a colour as light is, 
but less brilliant; 
light and shadow are only 
the relation of two tones.

A bag

I am not a fashionista by any stretch but like most of the female species, I am drawn to bags and shoes. I also love things that are old 

 (call them vintage or antique, it doesn't matter).  Today's forage at the goodwill store got me this bag.   I was quite surprised at the higher-than-usual goodwill store price tag but then decided to purchase it for its form, craftsmanship and style. Being ignorant about these things, I then discover that it's a sought-after name in bags. Now, that's a find and surely worth the money...and more!

Byebye summer!

the wind is blowing
the leaves are falling
and the mornings and evenings are cooler
the end to barbecues 
and to dining al fresco

~ For a simple yet tasty pork (farmer-style ribs) barbecue, rub salt, pepper and grapeseed oil.  
Prawns are marinated in minced garlic, rosemary, s&p, lemon and grapeseed oil ~

clothes dancing in the wind

the crispness of bed linen


ordinary laundry 
kissed by the sun

 nothing as intoxicating
