Nice titles get difficult after more than 400 posts.

Hi this is me!
Wow, i feel so honoured to have my portrait drawn by the famous Danny Roberts of the amazing blog Igor + Andre. I almost feel like a celebrity! Haha.
Thank you so, so much Danny!

When you were this bird,
what would you feel?
The freedom of being a bird,
who flies alone,
and has the whole sky for him alone?

Or would you feel desperate,
left alone by everybody,
you thought
loved you?

I am so longing
for being outside.
Smell the sweetness
of summer.
Long evenings,
walking outside
with only a little top on.

(Wasn't this sentence in Titanic?)

Gorgeous editorial from here...

They always say,
white is really a Summer thing.
Well, to me,
it's also a Fall and Winter thing.
It's pure beauty
all year round.

i wish i was born
in another century.
I wonder...
would i feel different,
or would i be the exact same person?

I really love the beautiful fabrics,
from this Liberty for Cacharel show...


I just received another beautiful award.
The lovely owner of Smitten Sundays gave it to me and of course, i am more than grateful again!
I want to give it to Luyi, one of my biggest inspirations in the blogosphere.
She finds the most amazing photography and is a lovely, sweet girl!

I also received this amazing award from The Drifter and The Gypsy, which is obviously one of my favourite blogs ever. It's just the most beautiful and dreamy place...
Thank you very much, Micaela!
I want to give this award to my lovely and beautiful Sparkle! Her blog is just....i can't really find the right words, but it's like a dream, a very good one....

I think i have a problem
i think i think too much.

(Maria Mena, Fragile)

Yay for another chaotic post.
I don't seem to be able,
to produce anything else lately.
It is like it is.

400 posts already? waw.
I've seen your portrait on Danny Roberts' blog - congratulations! You must feel so honoured, but you deserve it obviously!

Those white rooms remind me of Liebemarlene's little set where she takes the pictures for her vintage shop. It's actually just one wall painted white but I love the peaceful atmosphere it breathes.

And I like you chaotic posts. ^^

luckebabe said...

great portrait! I always enjoy your posts. very creative!!

heartshapedmorning said...

love the portrait. you look so serene and pretty with your long braid.
i also wonder what i would be like if i had been born in another century... what would i think about? what would i dream about? and what would i wear, hehe! congrats on the awards, lovely.

Endofmarch said...

Congrats on the 400 posts, on the awards and on the very very lovely portraits. It's all oh so wonderful!

ND I agree with you, white is a color for all seasons.

Have a nice day!

Jenna said...

400?! Jeepers Batman! I don't mind the chaotic posts, I just love reading all of it. =]

And in response to the born in a different century question, I believe you would be very different. If all the things that had happened in our lives never happened...well they wouldn't have happened. And we wouldn't have those to experience and mold our character around.

Just thought I'd add that in =]

agnes said...

so... this is the 400th post already? you have definitely came from a long way dear. And i must say this "chaotic post" does magic to me too. it's lovely :)

Congratulations on the 400th post again! YAY!

indigotangerine said...

I think any post "chaotic" or not are wonderful, they never fail to inspire me. The picture of garden struck me as sad however, like the photographer was on the outside looking in. My favorite was the jumping people. Sigh... Its all so pretty.

Alice X said...

you are soo beautiful mila, that portrait is amazing:)and i adore the words and pictures as always.


The Wanderers' Daughter said...

Mila, LOVE the portrait!
And I love the complex and eclectic post. Lovely and sensitive.

anywhere I lay my head said...

Lovely drawing, you are so pretty!

Love all the photos and the story about the bird, I think I would feel very free but at the same time very lonely.

Eyeliah @ stylesymmetry.com said...

I love to stop by and visit your blog, it is a breathe of fresh air! The Carla Bruni helps create a lovely space.

thedrifterandthegypsy said...

gorgeous gorgeous post. your blogs is one of my favorites in the whole world too! the chaotic element of the posts is what i like best. you write so well. the words you choose are so simple and not fancy at all, and thats what i love best about it. its hard to explain...
oh and btw, my name is spelled "Micaela", not "Michaela". it's okay. the way you spelled it is the more common way and thats the way most people spell it.

Johanne said...

I'm glad it is like it is! Your chaotic posts are always lovely to read. The portrait is really cool,you lucky girl!


setyourselfonfire said...

Indie.Tea said...

The illustration of you is beautiful! And the post is amazing, as always :)

Heart in a cage said...

Wauw gaaf dat portret! Gefeliciteerd met je vierhonderdste post!<3 Some wens ik ook dat ik in een andere tijd leefde. Dan in de jaren 60/70 en op sandalen lopen en in een busje wonen en reizen. Vrij zijn. Nogal een geromanticeerd idee, maargoed.;)

K. Sundari said...

I think that line is in Titanic. That last picture reminds me of Shakespeare.
That illustration of you is very pretty. It's a great one for an avatar, so you are still a little bit mysterious. All 400 of your posts are very interesting I'm sure!

Callie Grayson said...

Hayley said...

wow, 400 posts!
&+ the "if you jump, i will jump, too" quote might have been in titanic, but its also in the lyrics to the "we the kings" song, "Skyway Avenue".
I loved all the pictures from this post (:

Anne said...

Hey Mila,

I think your painted picture is really cool. I always like it when things get put down on paper its like it lives and exist even more.

And about you bird piece written its really deep and I have to say I am that bird and I feel both ways. Wich can be really confusing at times.

Its like the eagle and chicken story I dont know if you know it but even with all the things that come along with it I rather be an eagle anyday :)

Michelle Parks McCourt said...

Sarah Hermans said...

even though sparkle may be to a faraway paradise,
sarah is still here,

ik wou je gewoon even zeggen dat ik sparkle verwijderd heb, omdat ik, ja, het was te zeer mij aant worden, en ik vond maar geen manier om sarah hermans van sparkle te scheiden... kheb nu een nieuwe blog, meer voor mijn inspiratie en veel minder over mij, minder boeiend dus ook, want mensen lazen het liefst de dingen over mijn leven zeggen ze, maar ach.
ik wou gewoon niet naar het niets verdwijnen.

sparkle gaat je missen, lieve magische mila

Missa said...

Oh, the Liberty collection! I'm so in love with it, it's absolute spring perfection!

I also love your beautiful interpretation of the two perspectives of the bird photo :)

Congrats on your beautiful portrait as well, you look so pretty... those lips, those eyes, those cheekbones... ooh la la!

much love to you <3

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!
