extremely... anything



this weeks IF theme is extremes.

"The air is an extremely dangerous, jealous and exacting mistress. Once under the spell most lovers are faithful to the end, which is not always old age. Even those masters and princes of aerial fighting, the survivors of fifty mortal duels in the high air who have come scatheless through the War and all its perils, have returned again and again to their love and perished too often in some ordinary commonplace flight undertaken for pure amusement."

— Sir Winston Churchill, 'Thoughts and Adventures,' 1932.

in other news... on a recent charity-shop-shopping-spree, i happened across these 4 little books. one being Seridan's "School for Scandal" which excited me muchly and brought back lots of memories from the school production many many moons ago :o)
but yes, these books are such a lovely size. i think all books should be this size. so easy to slip in your pocket, the ultimate travelling companion! and the fact that theyre 110 years old each, only makes them all the more enchanting...





and finally...
heres a little something ive been working on... these notebooks aren't finished yet, but heres a little sneak preview...



so yes, thats all for nowwww...
