A frosty London Fields

We haven't had any proper snow, i.e. more than a light dusting, in London for a couple of years now. I miss it. Instagram is killing me at the moment. Between the glorious days of sunshine my friends are enjoying in New Zealand and Australia, to the heavy blizzards and snow in New York, it's envy-making.. I can't really complain though. We've had plenty of beautiful frosty mornings lately, where Jack Frost has danced his way through town making everything glisten magically.

And finally, a light sprinkling of icing sugary snow.

Snowy London Fields

"I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” 

Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass

I wish I could go to sleep like the seeds some days and wake again in the warmer days of spring.

Living in a snow globe

This snowglobe print by Clare Owen pretty much sums up the last few days in London. It really is a bit like being shaken up in a snow globe when you're trekking around trying not end up on your bum in a pile of ice or sludge. But I can't complain. London all white is the stuff of dreams and film sets. Just lovely. The print is 50% off in the Papermash sale at the moment along with lots of other lovely stuff.
