Cadigans / 01



I've long wanted to write a regular post collecting my various whims and fancies of the day, week or month. Finally, here it is.

(Why cadigans? Well, I recently re-read my very first blog post - written on 21 February 2005 (I've been blogging for nearly ten years!) - where I talk about cadigans. They are placeholder words, those brilliantly esoteric, eccentric words such as knick-knack, whatjamacallit, thingumajig, doo-dah - words to describe things for which we have no words. It seemed appropriate.)

So, what's floating my boat right now?

The beautiful voice and lovely sounds of this woman.

The Folio Society - I wrote about them for The Simple Things. Watch their beautiful films and see how these beautiful books are crafted.

The photographs of Elliott Erwitt (pictured above) and this interview.

This incredible poetry:
“I want
To do with you what spring does with the cherry trees.”
♥ !

The rest of the world seems to have listened already, but this addictive podcast is powering my gym workouts.

And I made a batch of this today, filling the house with cinnamon, ginger and warmth. Try it.

What's tickling your fancy at the moment?
