Diary 270: A Magic Cherry Blossom Garden Party Weekend

i am devouring beauty at the moment. it feeds my whole existence. one year ago i started my first self-portrait project, the cherry blossom girl! now i am capturing these amazingly beautiful flowers with my polaroid camera, sort of like a side project to the former.....or maybe it should belong to my fairy pagan poetry tales of london project:)? we'll see!

a weekend of mine!

my friday could have, to put it mildly,  been better! but then saturday came and i had a garden party to attend:) i have a new wonderful friend, his name is john and he had invited me. we are neighbours! he helped me out in an emergency situation a couple of weeks ago and am very grateful for that situation to have happened, since it gave me a new friend:) to be with his family and some good friends of his was the best time i have had in ages. so much fun! so much laughter coming from me:) real laughter! so much wine & so much amazing foods that john had cooked himself. sunday i spent creating beautiful images of spring & thinking of where my flower faeries could be shot:)

spring heaven!

dream with the dreamers and invent
things you never knew you had in you.
think with the thinkers and discover
ideas that mold who you are. smile at
strangers and make friends that last
a life time. laugh with friends and
let those memories burn through your
heart. travel with travelers and
explore a life beyond your imagination.
love only one, and grow old with your
best friend. let these things bring
fire to your soul. so when you look
back at your life, you'll have no
regrets. and you can leave this place,
better then when you found it.

today i went to central london to get some polaroid film & to get some trimmings to create bows for my hair, one colour for each faerie. then i went straight to the swedish church where i ran in to this lovely girl, Γ₯sa whom is the editor of the church magazine. i might contribute soon:) prepped this blog post over there while devouring swedish gossip magazines!!! now = sitting at this lovely pub in marylebone, the royal oak!

sunshine happiness

all these cherry blooming photos!! so much love~ and ahh, i finally stumbled upon your blog! am inspired to write more on mine (so terrible at this!).

a little poem for you:
"If we opened our minds to enjoyment, we might find tranquil pleasures spread about us on every side. We might live with the angels that visit us on every sunbeam, and sit with the fairies who wait on every flower." ~Samuel Smiles
