I should be.......

I should be getting work done, there is more than enough to keep us busy. New windows for Kleins and Kozminskys coming up, orders for l'uccello scented pillows, craft kits and pomanders to fill, Christmas stock to get started on and preparing lots of goodies for our first


 The sale starts this Wednesday for a limited time only (while stocks last), we will have lots of buttons, lace, wool and other goodies at up to 50% off, and 10% off all other stock (books and stationary not included)

But I am having trouble focusing on all these things, I've been listening to too much tango and bossa nova, my head is still in Buenos Aires, strolling the antiques district and the streets lined with belle epoque buildings. Or in Rio de Janiero, on the beach in Ipanema or sipping a Caipirinha at Scenarium. Classic post holiday inertia.

Vintage Chanel....Divine!

This shop in Buenos Aires was amazing, racks and racks of clothing from mid 19th century until mid 20th century, in fabulous condition.

Row after row of antique hats,bonnets and wax bridal head pieces... heaven!

Beach volleyball? I don't think so....

A cool breeze blows in, Ipanema Beach

Ipanema, great neighbourhood

Cocktails at sunset just before our helicopter ride, it was too beautiful to be terrified

Sunset over Rio from the cable car heading up to Sugar Loaf... breathtaking!


  1. Caipirinhas are just too dangerously delicious, don't you think? And I'm so jealous about those vintage shops; I would have gone completely crazy!
