This one is huge and is above my bed. It's 1,5m of lenght.

What do you think about my Boudoir?

One of the things that I wanted to be as a child was a ballerina. Unfortunatly were I lived there wasn't ballet classes, so I never made that wish come true. So I developed a love affair with ballerina pictures and paintings (I don't have to say that I'm a HUGE Edgar Degas fan).

If you haven't see LIFE MAGAZINE archives, you must to! They have the prettiest pictures ever. From all the decades and with almost every known person in the 20th century.

Today I'll bring you some of the prettiest ballerina pictures you may see or find! I hope they're so inspiring to you as they are to me!

Cats and All About Them

Hello babes,
Tonight I'm going to talk about one of my favorite books and also one of my favorite flea market finds. That's right, I'm talking about Cats and All About Them by Frances Simpson. 
I found this book on a flea market for only 50 cents .

At first I really loved it because it was about cats, of course, but also because of the cover that was beautiful. When I first opened the book I saw it was signed by the writer herself but I didn't know who she was. Then when I googled her I saw how important this book was.. and mine was AUTOGRAPHED!

This is the perfect book for every Cat lover. Frances writes about Cat breeding, Cat's health, the most important and popular breeds from the era (beginning of the XXI century), and also Cat exhibition and contests.

Such a majestic cat!

This lovely persian looks like my baby Poirot 

Wonderful hardcover with engraved letters and illustrations.

And now, my beautiful babies. The loves of my life! <3

Me and Poirot.

Mermaid being a sleepy cat!

What about you? 
Are you a cat lover? 
Tell me about your kitties!
