i spy: dreamy skies, French film, and pre-punk fashion from the 1920s

August was half enjoying the dreamy end of summer, and half looking forward the bustle and fun of autumn.  Andy and I went on a little Truffaut kick, watching The 400 Blows and Stolen Kisses.  And we did a little trip prep by reacquainting ourselves with Mozart via Amadeus--what fun it was to watch that film again (the last time I saw it was probably its release 30 years ago)!

I hope your August was--and your September will be--beautiful and inspiring!  (More of what you see here can be found on my Tumblr and Pinterest accounts.)

  1. Oh… my… the sheep man! I'm really not sure what to make of him!

    Here's to a fabulous September K.

    1. I know! I really wish there was more info with the photo. I like to think he's perhaps dressed in a sheep-like manner to comfort motherless or traumatized lambs.
