Delicacy, These Days.










Beautiful as a dandelion-blossom, golden in the green grass,
This life can be.
Common as a dandelion-blossom, beautiful in the clean grass, not
beautiful
Because common, beautiful because beautiful;
Noble because common, because free.

"Conversation at Midnight," 1937

  1. The second dress is a tiny bit too nightgown-y for me, but I am in love with the detail and color of the first dress. That's gorgeous.

  6. Hi Kater,
    Sorry I haven't popped past in a while, it looks like I've missed some stunning posts.
    This one is quite lovely, you seem to have an eye for romance and delicacy in everything you see around you.
    A pleasure, these photos are beautiful.
