trouvée: a turkish lady

This one is for Little Augury. It is a page taken from an album ~ another one of those things I would liked to have seen in whole (why do people tear old books apart?). Inscribed: "Turkish Lady." {click to view larger}

No links today. I am feeling quiet, and very ready for the weekend. They say snow is in the forecast. More Emma on Sunday (thanks to Courtney for identifying the divine Squerryes Court) ~ and The Park looks interesting.

Cheers!

I like this piece quite a bit. I adore Little Augury's blog she and I share a sensibility on matters of aesthetic as do you true to tell.
Warm regards,
Simone

You must have known I would love this too! It reminds me of Tonny's vintage postcards tucked away in a suitcase that I now have, that came from his house....such a long time ago.

I imagine a plate of those turkish delights on another page. Lovely find.

ah ha! how wonderful my own blog dedication. honoured. this is so fascinating wonder the story behind it-and yes imagine the album in entirety. I will be returning the favour with another image you will like.

It's so good to know about Squerryes Court! What a wonderful house, and a wonderful Emma...so far my favorite of all the many adaptations.
