Well, hello there and happy Friday to you! I’m so, so thrilled to be guest blogging here. I truly adore Tina’s blog and have been a fan for quite a while!
I’m Julie, and my husband and I are the duo behind Duet Letterpress. When I’m not busy designing or pedaling away at our antique Pearl press, I can be found here where I blog daily about our shop and our studio. It’s also where I jot down inspirations and ideas and document things I love.
Today, I thought I’d share with you some photos from a friend’s wedding. Her photos are truly gorgeous. And magical. I’ve never seen anything like them, and I thought you might find them beautiful too.
Those colors up there? I could get lost in them for days.
Congratulations and thanks Dana + Hunter.
Also, thank you Tina for having me here.

It is certainly a pleasure to guest-post on The English Muse; a blog that has inspired me for many months with its eye-candy. I hope to be able to return the favor and inspire you!
Allow me to introduce myself: I am Alison (aka Mademoiselle Frou Frou) from the Frou Frou Fashionista, which is a luxury lingerie blog that features upscale intimates as seen in photography and in my boutique, Faire Frou Frou (which my mom and I own)!
This post is simply a dedication to the color pink. I think pink gets a bad rap for being too girly or ‘frou-frou’ (that shouldn’t be a bad word!), but the reality is that it is sweet, soothing, and undoubtedly feminine. From fuchsia to pale pink, there’s a shade that can work for everyone. Don’t you agree?
See you next time with another color dedication!
P.S. – Tina, best wishes to you as you take this time off. Nothing is more important than family.
A little pick-me-up for this afternoon, lovelies.
Photos all found on fffound.
Hello Readers of English Muse,
I am Maggie May fromFlux Capacitor, married to my love Mr. Curry with whom I have three children- Dakota, Ian and Lola. I am a novelist and poet, so I thought it fitting that my guest blog be full of photos of amazing, fascinating women writers. Let’s begin with Queen Poet, Sylvia Plath, and this lovely color photo of her and her children, Frieda and Nicholas. Look at her hair, the braids! I wonder if they’re real? Did they even have fake braids back then?
This is Marguriete Duras, the French novelist. I found my first of her novels in a pee smelling used book store and fell in love with her surrealist, gorgeous, engrossing style. She wrote ‘ The Lover ‘ , a novel based on her life experience that was turned into an erotic and gorgeous movie. She was a beautiful woman, with a lovely wide brimmed hat here!
I can’t tell you who this is! She’s the makings of many a post on my blog, my newest hero and obsession….
Anne Sexton! I remember the first time I read the Collected Works…I was in heaven. Her subject matters are nothing less than life, sex, love and death (what else is there? really-) and her poetry is so interesting, so passionate, so good to the brain. She was gorgeous and mysterious and gave readings to throngs of women who were feminists or becoming so. She inspired us and she showed us a way to self expression. She wrote a wonderful poem about women, ‘ Her Kind ‘
The glorious, brilliant Joyce Carol Oates. Ah. I remember reading ‘ We Were the Mulvaney’s ‘ and feeling intimidated: Holy Hell! How could I ever hope to measure up the scope of information on human life in this novel! And so I fell in love. Her novels are a.ma.zing. She has a terrifiyingly human and tactile grasp on life, on our experiences and the ways we fail, the ways we love. I think she looks like a silent film star! Of course, this picture is from the sixties.
Hello all — so lovely to meet you! It’s Lori of automatism today, happily taking a turn as guest blogger on the always inspiring English Muse while Tina takes a well earned break. In my non-blogging life I’m a collage illustrator — you may have seen the lovely post Tina did about my work a couple of months ago — but in the blog world I’m devoted to whatever I find inspiring, interesting, or simply beautiful in design, art, illustration and other creative fields. Today I’d like to share with you a series of gorgeous magnolia-themed images by one of my favourite photographers, Janne Peters. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.
