IMG_0795SWEETIETABLE

Matthew came back from a dog walk the other day with some branches of blossom for me, spring is on it’s way, hoorah. We have been hearing the screaming of faunicating cats, bouncing off the narrow village street walls for the last couple of weeks, so that’s also another sign that spring is in the air. I put the pretty blossom in an old, found glass bottle and it really gave the room a lift. Also on the table are dried flowers from our pink bouganvilla, a left over reminder of last summer. The glass bottles all sit on a hessian runner made by my sister for Christmas. I love it and by the looks of it so does Sweetie. Now there is one cat not interested in spring fever!

IMG_0417A I feel very lucky to have met the beautiful Carla Coulson and her husband Francesco in Australia. Carla, Francesco, Matthew and I had a picnic on the foreshore of Sydney Harbour. It was a beautiful sunny Sydney summer afternoon and we enjoyed our time with them, it was so lovely and relaxed. Carla http://carlacoulson.com is a wonderful photographer and I have really enjoyed her books Italian Joy and Paris Tango http://carlacoulson.com/shop Her photography is feminine and her story, brave and inspiring. Chasing a dream is the title of Carla’s latest book. http://www.penguin.com.au/products/9781921382307/chasing-dream The title sums up Carla’s story perfectly. Carla gave up the security of her well paid job in Sydney and took a leap of faith into the unknown. She bought herself a camera and headed for Italy and back to school to learn photography. For the past ten years Carla has lived in Europe and has found something she is passionate about, well two things really, photography and Francesco. I think there is a lot to be said for chasing your dreams. We all have dreams and I think we owe it to ourselves to go after them. I understand that such huge leap is not for everyone but I truly believe in finding something that you feel passionate about and going for it. Get the book and be inspired! Thank you Carla for being inspiring and thank you to both you and Francesco for a lovely afternoon and we hope to see you in either Paris or Lesvos soon.
