Time for the first mid week link love of the new year I think! Apologies the blog has been quiet the last few days, I've been a busy bee making lots of plans for Missy Vintage, The Historical Sauces and also for Vintage Norwich too. That's a lot of planning. There's been highlighter pens, folders, individual note pads and yes, slight panic attacks when my pen ran out of ink followed by the lead breaking in my pencil.........
So it's been a flurry of activity, much research and about a zillion emails have been exchanged. I've so many ideas in my head, that I continue to sleep with post it notes by the bed. I'm also working on a super give away so watch this space for news on that soon....
I've also finally upgraded to an iphone! Yes! I knew I had to move with the times when a lady of at least 80 whipped out her iphone. Now I like a bit of granny chic, and I'm used to often having beret envy at ladies I pass in the street but this was actually the first time I'd *really* had iphone envy. So this has already revolutionised my world and has made my twitter twitches worse...... social media, it's a thief of time but I love it so!
So when I've not been planning, texting,tweeting etc, I've been reading.........so because it's good to share, here are links to some reads I've enjoyed recently.
Firstly, the picture I've used at the top of this post is by photographer Brassai who's work included combing the streets of Paris at night in the thirties to capture life of a Parisian. Beautiful pictures. Please be aware there is some nudity in a few of the pictures. Just so you know...... www.atgetphotography.com/The-Photographers/BRASSAI
