"Come on, go feed Whiskers. No, don't eat it; give it to Whiskers"


Every Winter I seem to go through a "I can't take another Winter at Grey Gardens" phase, you who know me well are acquainted with it.  I turn off the phone, lock myself in, plump down by fire, grab my knitting needles and wait 'till the robbins beckon me outdoors.  Don't get me wrong, I always seem to accomplish a lot during those hibernation hours and relish that time period, but I am ever so happy to see that trees are budding, flowers blooming, fish are jumpin,' cotton is high, etc etc.

Isn't this photo shoot stunning!?  Very Beverley Nichols, although when it came out I had no idea who he was.  This is one of those spreads where I cut out every picture and pasted in my book.  I went looking for it, and it's still there!  Perfect in everyway!  Look at the rest here.


I can't wait until life looks like this everyday!

Neither can I! Thank you for this post which brightened up my morning. It has turned very cold here in France again, jsut when we thought we were over the worst. I think that I may just curl up with a book and wait for Spring proper....

Lovely post thank you for sharing

I loved this one too-I see Nancy Lancaster-the fashion would be perfect for her. Whether Grey Gardens or not-always living in a bit of a dream world. Love the Nichols references.

Thanks ladies! This was such a classic. Especially since it was shot 7 years ago, and everything still remains in style. Oh Grace.

I really wish my life could be me putzing around the house all day, tending gardens, cooking, and wearing tweed.

I'm so with you on winter and this one has been longer than ever. My best friend and I compare ourselves to the two Edie's although I'm not sure which of us is the older one! Good to have found your blog xx
