fisherman's beanie & sweater from H&M boots from Aigle Jupiter and Venus

The very first days of spring were spent at the seaside this year. Not yet warm enough to walk around in dresses and skirts but warm enough for some reading and picnicking on the beach.

Did you know that March was an extraordinary month for watching the planets? From my seaside balcony I spotted Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and even Mars!


The title of this blog post is obviously taken from ‘Downton Abbey’. I just love Maggie Smith as Lady Violet with her grandmotherly burns!

a little something...

So, these were the very last pictures of my ski trip in the French/Swiss Alps back in February.
Now it's time for Spring!

My order from Rifle Paper Co. finally came in today!
It was only recently that I realized I didn’t have a proper calendar yet, so I was happy to order this pretty one (the calendars are even on sale!).
