How’s the weather where you are? I’m definitely appreciating coffee this morning, as we were woken repeatedly last night because of Tropical Storm Isaac-induced 50mph winds and rains. (Three cheers for Aveline, who quickly fell back asleep on her own each time she awoke!) This morning it’s oddly dark; the thick cloud cover isn’t letting a bit of light in. The scene is very much the opposite of the above image!
Squalls are expected to continue throughout the day today, so to counteract the dark rain beating against the windows — and before we lose power! Josiah just texted to tell me there is a partial power outage at work — I thought I’d share a lineup of things which are nice and calming. Pretty things such as…
…this lovely paris map, drawn by Josie Portillo. Can you believe it’s the first map Josie has ever illustrated?
…this handmade dotted linen blanket, designed by Sophie Digard and available on Makie Clothier.
…these pages from the German vintage children’s book Fahre Mit Durchs ABC, via Lab-Curio.
…this ceramic dala horse via Bergen House on Etsy – the figurine was actually painted in Brasil!
…this vintage wallpaper of the streets of Paris, via Smile Mercantile on Etsy. I think it would look charming covering a single wall in a guest room — you know, in that dream world where we all have an extra room to decorate in Parisian vintage decor. :)
Hope your Monday is lovely, friends!
P.S. If you enjoyed this edition of Monday’s Pretty Things, you might want to have a little look at some of these, too.
