Shopping: Things We Love for Spring | 20.13.16
Sunday 20th March, 2016
“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot an the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light and winter in the shade.”
While it may have been one of those March days that Charles Dickens spoke of, it is the official first day of Spring! and we’re excited about pink blossoms on trees in the city and bright sunny days, flowering hedges and awaking early, pink kitten heels and shimmery bomber jackets, duchess-satin wrap coats and soft suede mules—here are a few favourite things on our SPRING shopping list . . .
If you haven’t yet picked up The Parish-Hadley Tree of Life: An Intimate History of the Legendary Design Firm by Brian McCarthy & Bunny Williams you simply must! It is a favourite — so many beautiful prints & patterns and classically chic rooms.
if each day,
you feel that you are destined for me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower
climbs up to your lips to seek me,
ah my love, ah my own,
in me all that fire is repeated,
in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live it will be in your arms
without leaving mine.
—from the last verse of the poem If You Forget Me by Pablo Neruda
