Trusting Trees


"WHO robbed the woods,
The trusting woods?
The unsuspecting trees
Brought out their burrs and mosses
His fantasy to please.
He scanned their trinkets, curious,
He grasped, he bore away.
What will the solemn hemlock,
What will the fir-tree say?"
-Emily Dickinson

  9. That purse really sets off your outfit. The mixing of patterns within a basic color scheme makes everything look like it was made to go together. And with your lovely red hair, you blend into the forest in just the right way. It's all lovely.

  12. I love everything about this post. Especially the poem. I've never been much of a Dickenson fan, however that could be because my teenage mood couldn't endure her. I think my mood has changed and I definitely want to give her another try!! You are so lovely, Rebecca.

  13. I'm always simultaneously excited and disappointed when I see that something you're wearing is vintage! Haha. You look lovely as usual.

  18. What a sweet look. I've a couple of purses very simlilar (i love embroidered black backgrounds) and a dress that looks almost like yours. What's that mean?

  21. I'm not the biggest fan of fuchsia but you wear it so well! It's great how you paired it with the navy. Such a nice mix of patterns here, too.

  26. I just have to say that I love your purse! Maybe because I have the exact one(found at an antique store of course). I've been an avid reader of your blog for about a year now, and feel like I am looking at myself about 9 years younger. I have yet to use the purse and your ideas are a great jumping off point for my own creativity. Thanks!

  33. Enjoy your trip down south! We would be so honored if you dropped in...

  34. No one really commented on the Dickinson poem. Who knew she'd be so prophetic when it came to ecological issues like modern day logging and deforestation? I'm sure she wasn't specifically commentating on it, but it does reflect on what is going on now. Doesn't it?

    Again, I love your forest photos. You always take wonderful shots.

  35. hooray, another emily dickinson poem!

    i love the atmosphere of these photos. just lovely.

  38. Scrolled straight down to see where you got your dress - the pattern and colour is perfect, shame (for me) that it's vintage. Love how you've combined it with patterned accessories.

  47. Your quotes and bits of poetry make me so happy. I was feeling odd the other night and started reading and Dickinson in the bath and also reread I Capture the Castle, which may be one of my favorite YA books of all time! I'm so happy you posted about it. I've never seen the film though, I'm scared it won't be as good, but I should just watch it.


    And your outfit is so pretty! I love the dark hues, especially your nails and the pretty dress.

  59. Such a cool colour and pattern combination you have here. I love it with the weather and foliage. Awesome post.

    And it's so funny I just mentioned the book 'I Capture in the Castle' in one of my posts. Don't you just wish you had all of their clothes? Especially Rose's....

  63. Very pretty outfit. I love the last picture where the camera focuses on the branch in front of you.

    the picutres are so pretty :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. I also wanted to say that I love your choice of "I capture the castle" as a good movie.

    I really love both the book and movie and feel they both have a hard to capture sense of nostalgia about them

    ReplyDelete
  65. beautiful! the print on the dress is lovely.

  66. I'm so glad you liked Budapest, my hometown!It's a really magnificent city!
    here's a little film that I made about the city (and a lovely girl - Bianka)and it's called Lightsearcher (fénykereső) if you are interested. (the quality is sooo bad....)

  68. I loved I Capture the Castle. I was so riveted by the controversy of the two families I couldn't stop watching.

    I wanted Romola's character to wake up, to see what was in front of her, and I wanted the family to be happy... the ending just killed me.

    But in that sort of bittersweet, unresolved sort of way.
