Trinkets for Tea

Little old lady time for tea,
Here's a kiss, two or three.
-- Hoagy Carmichael "Little Old Lady"
Some random photos that I took a while ago of my Cor-date trinkets.

Silver Blue

But you'll be wearing golden wings,
And fall right through the air.
-- Linda Ronstadt "Silver Blue"
    I've lately taken to browsing BHLDN, Anthropologie's sister brand dedicated to wedding paraphernalia. Well, not because I harbour any matrimonial expectations, but that their lookbooks and stylings are always romantic and the photography inspiring. I was considering getting a bangle on sale to pair with my tulle skirts when I remembered I had similar items in my ever-increasing Cor-date stash. These bracelets, with their classic designs and burnished gold tones, are the perfect complements for tulle skirts that are all the rage now. And apologies if my tulle skirt seems a little ruffled in the photos, rushing to and fro the camera between shots while the self-timer was ticking meant I had no time to smooth out the wrinkles!
    最近開始喜歡逛 BHLDN,是 Anthropologie 專賣婚紗相關的姐妹牌。我並沒有結婚的打算啦,只是單純覺得他們的風格浪漫古典,照片也美得讓人啟發靈感。原本之前想趁他們打折時入手搭配紗裙的手鍊,後來想想其實在我日漸壯大的 Cor-date 大軍裡就有現成的啊!這兩條手鍊應該算是基本款,簡單的設計跟仿舊的古金色澤根本是浪漫紗裙的絕配。然後抱歉啊,照片中紗裙看來有點皺,因為要在定時自拍倒數時在相機跟拍攝點間來回,完全沒時間去好好把摺子撫平  : (
    Oh, and many thanks to all who have written to me or left encouraging messages during this difficult time. I am glad I still have this blog to provide some distraction from the hassles and sorrows of reality, I hope you'll find enjoyment in reading the blog as I've found solace in writing it. 
    另外,很感謝這些天來信或留言鼓勵我的大家。其實還有這個部落格來紓解日常的壓力與傷痛,算是小小的安慰吧!寫 blog 時常覺得平靜自在,希望大家在看文時也能覺得放鬆啦。

After The Rain

    A lot has happened to our family since my last post, we lost someone very dear to our hearts very unexpectedly. A few days ago, an Anthropologie parcel that I ordered weeks ago arrived, but the joy of receiving beautiful things was now lost in the midst of our fresh grief. But the shipment came with a watercolour postcard depicting the tranquil waters after a downpour. Perhaps we may never emerge from the storm unscathed, but I'll learn to look for the rainbow after the rain. R.I.P.
    最近家裡發生了很多事情,親密的家人在意想不到的時候離開了我們。幾天前收到了很早前訂的Anthropologie包裹,可是卻再也感受不到收貨的喜悅。包裹中附上了一張水彩明信片,是平靜的雨後景緻跟寫著"After the rain"的文字。也許失去的悲傷無法彌補,但我也要努力前進,期待雨過天晴後的彩虹。

I’m all alone now, check it out,
Me and you should take a vacay.

-- Martin Solveig with the Cataracs "Hey Now"


    Long-delayed photos from last year's seaside resort vacay. I was reluctant to edit these photos initially as my computer was heading into the sunset and those files were huge and I just got lazy (oh, the excuses!). Anyway, the aforementioned PC just went kaput last week, I reckoned I might as well post these recovered photos with my new computer before I totally forgot about them. I went to the resort just after summer, and the place was almost deserted it felt like a private beach. 

    拖了很久的去年海邊渡假的照片 :P  一開始很沒幹勁去整理這些照片,因為檔案多又大,電腦又秀逗,然後人又懶  XDD  不過上個禮拜電腦終於壽終正寢換了台新的,想著還是把這些還好有存到的照片整理發一下,免得以後忘在深深的磁碟海中找不回來。我是在暑假過後的淡季去的,人煙稀少的像是私人海灘一樣。
