A haze of loveliness

To counteract our thoughts of dowdiness some beauty.

haze
'But she could never escape from her beauty; it clung to her like a mist, like a skin, so that she seemed to move in a haze of loveliness. Everything she touched, every word she used took on this quality of grace; her very gloves and handkerchiefs were romantic.' Antonia White Frost in May

Wishing you all a haze of loveliness weekend.

    1. Sunday- I don't know much about Antonia White but the book is a Virago Modern Classic, in fact I think it might be the first one published. It's about a young girl sent to a convent & is a wonderful read. The sun is coming out here so hopefully we'll have a good week, hope you're week is flower filled.
