Most intriguing...Lucille, I don't say this to everyone but I am the answer to your prayers.I could locally source fine teas and fascinating cushions for you. Beautiful single, young women - and men - are advertised every Sunday in quality Indian broadsheets, complete with academic qualifications, earning potential, religion and caste. All, apparently, have fair or "wheaten" complexions. I will checkout their background wallpapers.
I'd happily move in to live in a Toast catalogue.
The latest Toast catalogue is on my kitchen counter (still) . . . not because I really intend on buying anything (too expensive!), but because I would love to dwell in that world. Whoever was in charge of the lighting and photography is a genius. It has that cosy, autumnal, faded watercolour sort of feeling.
More prosaically, have you noticed how when you're waiting to be served at the drycleaner, you always see some article of clothing you would really love to own, but don't?
JofIndia: Now you're talking.Rachael: I don't often frequent the drycleaners but I often see things on strangers and sometimes ask them where they got the article. The answer is often Japan I find.Mary and Bee: The owners of Toast have been interviewed in the Telegraph on Saturday and admit they live in this world themselves.
I don't think I could keep a straight face in Toastworld.
I've just spent an early morning half hour catching up with my blog reading and I wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your blog and posts. Nice to read The Desiderata again, I used to have a copy but it disappeared during one of the more frenzied spring cleans.
