In the midst of a cluttered schedule, what I desire most is to simply sit and read. Gone are the days when I could devote my attention to a single book, in fact it's nearly been a decade since I've been that disciplined. Now my reading interests gravitate toward the mindsets that I wish to explore; perhaps a cinema legend or cat-lovers. Since the start of the new year I've placed two books near my bed; their words and subject matter excite me the most right now. I've also surrounded myself with some other lovely things in anticipation of Spring.
The first book is something that I had my eye on for months and luckily for me, Donald gave it to me for Christmas! It was printed in 1956 and has the favorite cat stories of James Mason and his wife (with the weathered pages to prove it!) The illustrations are adorable and the stories are so old-fashioned. He also gave me the definitive Stanley Kubrick retrospective that is endlessly fascinating ♥
I suppose Spring-time would not be complete without some new dresses and ornate collars. I'm loving pastels, blues, yellows and gold tones at the moment. Being surrounded by all this loveliness is necessary, because most days are tedious and many new changes require laborious attention. Quite soon I will have the ultimate new acquisition, something that I've been saving for several years for- a car! This weekend shall be grand & I'll probably celebrate with a nice meal and buying my own bouquet of white pom pom flowers x
