Perchance To Dream


Silver velvet,
Brown fur flecked with gold.
Chiffon crumpling
Dreams from the crescent moon.

    1. Brave or foolish! Actually Nico's pretty well behaved with chiffon, it's fabrics like mohair and fur that she likes to knead with her claws... So glad you like the room too, it's our spare room.

    1. Thanks so much for your kind words. I love photography but use a very basic camera -am a firm avoider of flash photography, find the blurry look much more atmospheric!

  13. Floaty dress plus cat, and your pre-raphaelite hair - what a winning combination. Plus I really enjoyed your Paris images in the posts below. It makes me hungry to visit again as I've only had one all too brief trip there.
