How was your weekend? Mine was pretty fab - the highlight being a Valentine-inspired dinner over at our friends on Saturday night. We brought the champagne, melted chocolate and strawberries, and they provided a feast and great conversation. and oh how we laughed!! I don't remember what about exactly, but it was hilarious at the time.
I also spent the weekend working on something that I can't wait to 'reveal' to you very soon! Yes, it has something to do with this (blog)house of mine. Shall I tell you? No? Yes? No? Let me know. Because if you want to know, i will tell you! But if you like surprises instead, then I shall not give it away. but oooh I can't wait for it to be completed!
I also want to take this post to say a big thank you for all your awesome comments. Please be sure to read the comments to the posts if you have a moment because they add so much to my initial words and often provide the answers to questions, or simply different perspectives... and you all have an incredible imagination! I love it when you add an idea to my photos or creation, it creates this wonderful layering effect.
One of my favourite (how many times do I say this word on the blog?!) commented posts is one from last month called a little tucked away treasure - it is my photo of bakers twine which I found tied to a branch in the Jardins Des Plantes in Paris, and I had this fanciful idea that someone had tied a love note to the branch for their lover to find. Raluca wrote a fabulous comment which showed I wasn't too far off - she explains a tradition in Romania that totally explains the twine tied to the branch, I'm convinced now that the person who tied this string is Romanian! Go back and read it if you didn't catch it at the time. Thank you Raluca! I am always amazed at how many corners of the world this blog reaches, and to learn these amazing facts about other cultures that I never would have known otherwise. Yay to comments!
Okay, I'll let you get back to work. Have a wonderful day! But before I go, I made a little creature, just for you...
A friend of Harriet's perhaps? She needs a name - suggestions welcome...
