Precious things: a series
















































Look at that fire surround! And the trunk, and the plate. That beautiful antique rug. The vintage crate. I love the hydrangeas, the lines of the wooden objects, the pops of pink.

My kids can just about reach the mantelpiece now. They pull stuff down, it falls on them, breaks on the floor. Last week T pulled out a full ash-pan from the grate, onto the sheepskin rug. My nerves cannot take any more!

I'm looking forward to a couple of weeks time when we finally have that kid-free space I've been dreaming about since forever. I will pile up books, and find little objects to put on display, and make a grown-up room just so, for us. No-one else.
