oh pretty things

I have always been fascinated with beauty, always terribly in love with all the pretty things. I can't help but fall to pieces when it's over beauty's sake. I have always been trapped into this neverending quest for all the wonderful, darling things in the world. I remember when I was very little, my dad used to take my brother & I to toy stores and I always always wanted to take home every little thing that sparkled my interest, it was never enough and I don't really think it was selfish ambition but love, love for all the wonderful things to dream and romanticize to the point of idyllic unreality. I am still trapped into this hazy dream of finding lovely things to take home, every corner and shelf in my room is filled with the most precious treasures I have found all over the world, some of them are bestowed upon me by loved ones and lovers, some others are personal finds, nevertheless, it's still one of the things I like to do most, finding, searching, bringing beauty into my home and I shall never get tired of it, it's always an adventure!

these are some of the things I brought from Paris,
some others are gifts from my sailor and from my darling nymphs
