French Treasures

"Be faithful to your own taste because
nothing you really like is ever out of style."
                              ~Billy Baldwin

   Crazy week as usual but today is my day off and I wanted to do a post about some beautiful things! Thankyou to everyone who left comments about the Movie Costumes - I'm so glad that you enjoyed the photos! I had so much fun taking them and the exhibit was so lovely I was very excited to share it! Today I have taken photos of some of the treasures in my house that revolve around my favorite style - French! I find that french furniture, ornaments, and accessories are the most beautiful and feminine that a girl can find. They have an elegance and softness that appeals to me so much and when I see them I automatically feel at home. I have also done a new little drawing that I thought fit with the whimsical side of French interiors. I hope you enjoy these few French treasures and find time to relax and enjoy the beautiful autumn afternoons.

Movie Costumes

"Was there only one world after all,
which spent its time dreaming of others?"
                         ~Philip Pullman

    I have been working on this post all weekend and I can't wait to show it to you! The sheer volume of photographs that I had to go through was overwhelming! I've narrowed them down though to what you will probably still think is an extravagant amount, but I loved them all! My sister and I went to an exhibit at our local museum this week showcasing costumes from thirty odd films. It was spectacular! We had such a wonderful time and the best part was that I was allowed to bring my camera! I have included a list at the end of the photos of the films these costumes are from (sadly there are two I can't remember). I hope you enjoy looking through them as much as Emma and I did! I have also included a little sketch of my most favorite gown from the Phantom of the is the last in the group. Enjoy!
