"It was one of those perfect English autumnal days which occur more frequently in memory than in life."
~P.D. James

......................................................................................................

. . . this morning, the sun shone brightly, an utterly perfect start to the weekend, and a perfect way to end the month and we're ready for whatever november brings, so long as there are cosy heather grey sweaters and burnt crimson, logs by the fire and gilded frames, a sprinkle of chocolate on our morning coffee -- and so -- from this moment on, let the leaves fall where they may . . .

. . . a more luxuriously low-key weekend would not have been possible, for this time, [and the first in quite some time], there were no set plans, travel or otherwise -- only half-thoughts, whims & fancies, all fallen by the wayside, in favour of easy mornings and elegant dinners, the blustery romance of autumn at every turn and candlelight against dark windowpanes on early evenings, and later, ambling walks, leather boots and leaves, long cashmere scarves and very warm thoughts . . .

hope you've had a magical late-october weekend, and that it's beautiful where you are, roséline xo

_MG_0079-3

. . . often, in past weeks, thoughts have been drifting to the misty waters and dusky mountains of a time spent away, [not long ago], in the adirondacks, at what must certainly be one of the most romantic places in the world, lake placid lodge, where, despite having arrived very late from the city, we [p & i] were welcomed with a crackling fire and a glass of champagne . . .

_MG_0196-2

_MG_0097-4-Edit

. . . before retiring for the evening to one of the seventeen luxurious and private cabins at the water's edge, where a plate of fruits and cheeses and a bottle of red wine awaited, even at that very late hour of night, and spent our first evening in front of the stone fireplace . . .

{two lovely things: golden shades of autumn}

two lovely things
rust

hanneli-yellow-pants

. . . nearly november, and there has been overcast skies, blustery, leaf-strewn winds, and bouts of rain, and so, to brighten these last october days, golden artwork and gilded accents, warm white cable knits and sun-soaked high-waisted trousers, and it's off to the flower markets for as many bouquets as one can possibly carry . . .

......................................................................................................

recent two lovely things

. . . and what could possibly be more fitting for the last blustery days of autumn than pumpkin meringue tartelettes?

m-a-2

. . . while spring may be a time for paring down, autumn is for layering -- for sweaters and long scarves and at home, wool blankets and velvet drapes, and a need to revel in beautiful details, and perfectly ornate bits of gold -- along the edges exotic woods and around the graceful curves of spiral staircases . . .

kora1

. . . fair-trade, eco-chic and utterly gorgeous, the kora jewelry range was created by amy walker & maxandra short three years ago, after working for a non-profit group in rwanda; made of recycled materials such as discarded cow bones and horns, brass and aluminum from old pots and automobiles, the range is made by local artisans from nairobi, kenya -- there are necklaces and charm bracelets as well, but have quite fallen for the cuffs and bangles . . .

. . . may always love the gilded, art-deco inspired f. scott fitzgerald covers best, but the new designs by coralie bickford-smith for the penguin hardback classics series are every bit as chic and ultra-stylish with their pared-down, graphic appeal, and of the many new designs, favourites include the elegant gold chains of jane austen's mansfield park and the pretty horses of charles dickens' hard times . . .

"There is time for work. And there is time for love. That leaves no other time."

~ Coco Chanel


. . . today has been mostly work, and yet, still in the throes of what may well be the second longest post to complete in history [this one, being the first]
, as is often the case with photographs that are our own -- the level of perfectionism reaches new and impossible heights, but most certainly, when all is said and done, [hopefully], everything will turn out beautifully . . .

. . . a late brunch on a sunny sunday afternoon, and can hardly believe that already one week ago, was boarding a flight home from paris, and everything seems to have flown since -- the ten days away, the seven days home, the entire month of october, even . . . and so, from the rest of this enchanted sunday on, shall revel breathlessly in every last moment, even as the days fall soundlessly into night and the slanted pools of light become paler with each autumn morning . . . for today, there are places to visit and old friends to write, overflowing closets to organise, and glittery shoes with which to dance the night away . . .

hope you're having a stunningly lovely weekend, and that it's beautiful where you are, roséline xo



{p.s.} on monday, to begin the week, the long-awaited photographs of our time away in the impossibly romantic cabin in the mountains -- can not wait to show you! x
