..for a happy life, as captured through the lens of the amazing Sydney-born photographer Petrina Tinslay.….

1. A green velvet curtain with silk embroidery and trim, with little tassels. A flea market painting of pink roses.
2. White linens, preferably vintage. Red shoes, with rosettes. ย A white organza dress.
3. Travel books, to faraway places.
4. Moroccan slippers and a blue silk cushion from India.ย 
5. Little cakes with sugar frosting. And raspberries.ย 
Which do you like the best?
(PS–there are even more beautiful things on Petrina’s webpage.)

    I love the red shoes. When I saw the photo, I immediately pictured myself wearing those red shoes and swinging on a wooden swing hanging from an old oak tree. A very nice moment:)
