the word (the way it sounds in german) has kept me on guard. in flemish it is afbeeldinghaving rummaged in my vintage box for previous post inspiration, i decided to play about in my simonnetta, for a change. ☻ ps - what an incredible fantin-latour interpretation, ariane! you have shot a more than graceful image of the original painting. abbild-er, chez ariane this weekend.

the image she found made her dream of high summer".

  1. 'high summer' the sound of those words on its own...and yes there are still lots of green around, a late rose, a persistent hollyhock but the real image has gone and yes may only be found for now in a green gold box, beautiful green and gold sweetie, xx

  8. For me this is a wonderful portrayal of childhood and how the imagination really takes flight to where a box of dreams can be a very real experience.
    Wonderful! I like your other work on this little project too !

  12. Oh yes Nadine! That box of imagination. Opened. The box that encourages the dream...a day dream, a full on night dream in the deepest places of sleep and the unconscious realms...a stolen moment while searching for a matching sock. Love this post tons. Norma, xo
