January days feel longer

and lighter and brighter. 

One more day of sweet reverie

before the humdrum begins in earnest. 

I've been flicking through the pages of Cahier d'artistes,

a limited edition gift from Erica Cavallini Semi-Couture

that flew all the way from balmy Milan some time ago now,

and is now my treasure... 

The beauty of an album merges together the fashion label

with the ethereal, poetic work of five photographers,

which you may find as mesmerising as I do -

Loppiainen, valoa kohti,

vielä tämä päivä hiljaiseloa

ennen kuin sitä taas mennään. 

Amaryllis samalla varisee ja 

jaksaa vielä punkea uutta kukkaa.

Ja ihastelin taas ihaninta lahjakirjaa, 

joka saapui aikoinaan kotiovelle Italiasta... 

Linkit yllä johdattavat kirjassa esittäytyvien 

valokuvataiteilijoiden tykö. 

Parahinta loppiaisiltaa!

What a beautiful words, Rebecca. I also think that january is a month full of goals and dreams, and with a special light. By the way, I love your little treasure.

I've become friends with January in the last few years
- I always used to find it the longest, coldest and hardest of months.
But it's exactly as you say
- about dreaming and planning and the light,
a really special month in fact. Lots of love! x
