HYMNS TO MAGIC BEAUTIES:)

hey lovely wonders:))

i hope you are having a lovely week so far. almost end of summer, time & its flying...!!! so fast.

obsession right now for me is a new book i started listening to,
 the classic of anna karenina as read by the talented maggie gyllenhaal
πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ
 (whom i have actually worked with, see below)
 if you are still yet to read it do it asap. such perfection inspiration.

when at shoots i, as the then fashion associate as i was back in 2005 or so, had to take a polaroid of each outfit on the shoots, for some reason i usually photographed wonders in weird angels:))) on the white space i wrote down the clothing credits.
maggie was the best!!! and such a charming beauty.
maggie gyllenhaal
there are a couple of other images from that day here
i think the above dress was created by the late oscar de la renta.

other from that, my dearest aunt has been to visit me with my stepfather. we had 11am kaffe in my house, i had such fun decorating and getting cuteness cookies and such for this little event of ours. the time we had together was such preciousness. 
😊😊😊

too going through images from my cherry blossom girl series to put new magic on them (well hopefully so anyways). 

&

i now have back in working order my zenith-e camera from moscow 1980 olympics so now i need beauty to capture. please natureπŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’œπŸ’•πŸ’œπŸ’•

found this little poem somewhere 
such beauty to share
hope you love:)))
πŸ˜‡

i asked for strength – and God gave me difficulties to make me strong.

i asked for wisdom – and God gave me problems to solve.

i asked for prosperity – and God gave me brawn and brains to work.

i asked for courage  – and God gave me dangers to overcome.
i asked for patience – and God placed me in situations where I was forced to wait.
i asked for favors  – and God gave me opportunities.
i received nothing i wanted, i received everything I needed

i have started to created weekly or so poetry readings while having quirkyness mornings
πŸ˜‚
hopefully
 to amuse 
to create smiles with joy
πŸ’œ
this is the section i read from charles baudelaire's hymn to beauty poem from the collection of his the flowers of evil
πŸ’œ
you are a candle where the mayfly dies
in flames, blessing this fire's deadly bloom.
the panting lover bending to his love
looks like a dying man who strokes his tomb.

what difference, then, from heaven or from hell,
o beauty, monstrous in simplicity?
if eye, smile, step can open me the way
to find unknown, sublime infinity?

angel or siren, spirit, i don't care,
as long as velvet eyes and perfumed head
and glimmering motions, o my queen, can make
the world less dreadful, and the time less dead.

- hymn to beauty
(the last part of the poem)

a cherry blossom girl. a summery faerie. and some rapunzel wonders:)

hey  lovely beautiesπŸ’“

i hope you are having a lovely august:) 

here in epping it has been sunshine mornings with loads of devouring the beauty of the abundance of nature we have here. every morning there is life to fall in love with. we have such bambi's. such flowers. such greenery. 

i have met people recently that has added blessings to my life so am very grateful for that. one day at a time to grow the magic. i can not wait for october strangely enough ( i love summer), and it has to do with the fact that my art classes starts then. to have that = gold!

on a portrait

oh, mystery of beauty! who can tell
thy mighty influence? who can best descry
how secret, swift, and subtle is the spell
wherein the music of thy voice doth lie?

here we have eyes so full of fervent love,
that but for lids behind which sorrow's touch
doth press and linger, on could almost prove
that earth had loved her favourite over much.

a mouth where silence seems to gather strength
from lips so gently closed, that almost say,
"ask not my story, lest your hear at length
of sorrows where sweet hope has lots its way."

and yet the head is borne so proudly high,
the soft round cheek, so splendid in its bloom,
true courage rises thro' the brilliant eye,
and great resolve comes flashing thro' the gloom

oh, noble painter! more than genius goes
to search the key-note of those melodies,
to find the depths of all those tragic woes, 
tune thy song right and paint rare harmonies.

genius and love have each fulfilled their part,
and both unite with force and equal grace,
whilst all that we love best in classic art
is stamped for ever on the immortal face.

jula margaret camereon
september, 1875

such beauty

happy august and see you next week

hey😊

happy august to you allπŸ’œ i can't believe we are already here! 

here in wonderland
 we have
 been 
documenting beauty and adding beauty to my little flat...on a daily basis. too i've felt inspired to dress up cutely in many of my vintage dresses, i mean i need to use as many of my lovely dresses this time of year when one does not need stockings and such thingies...such freedom. i too love visiting as many charity shops as possible, i am always finding such wonderful faerie treasures:) i guess this is an ongoing habit i have brought with me from east dulwichπŸ‘°
it showcases such a beautiful lilacs house in dulwich😍

if you have been a long time reader of mine, you may know that i am obsessed by the late wonderful & beautiful mademoiselle tasha tudor (here's some inspirational images from her life that i blogged a while back). she being an artist, a gardener filled with life of such magic creatures called cats & dogs. on top of it all she dressed so wonderfully authentically to the way she lived her whole life, including how her home was decorated. also flowers flowers & more flowers. and cookies. all just perfectly fit together. how i admire that. so in my little world tiny steps towards this dream of mine, to bring in one element at a time, flowers being a start πŸ’• next i hope for my tulip & rose kittens to happen:)))πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

some books by with the wonder
tasha tudor:)

i'll leave you with thisπŸ’œ

i am an excitable person who only understands life
lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger
as reason. i am so thirsty for the marvellous that only
the marvellous has power over me.
anything i can not transform into something
marvellous, i let go. reality doesn't impress me.
i only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when
ordinary life shackles me, i escape, one way or another.
no more walls.

you are exciting you are wonderful you are marvellous
let magic shine through you
no more walls

faith hope & love
