Where the Living Was Easy

Rolled my pasta-ice-cream-espresso-campari saturated body home and am now facing English default weather - 16ºC and rain showers… Oh well, good climate to get back into the swing of things and putting together some pictures of places where the sun does shine. And YES I got myself a straw hat!

Naturally I didn't open the big fat Photoshop book once, but finally managed to read 'The Girl with the Dragoon Tattoo'. Loved it! (For all the ones who've read the book, too - Did you also wonder why the author went into minute descriptions of computer devices – nearly as if he was sponsered by Apple and Co? But apart from that – can't wait for books 2 and 3.)

straw hat: bought in Arezzo, vest: italian supermarket, sun glasses: vintage armani

WeShop said...

You're home! Welcome back. I enjoyed the 1st Dragon book (and the Swedish film). Book 2 is good as you learn much more about Lisbeth's background. Have yet to read the 3rd and final one. xx

Vintage Vixen said...

Yeah! Sabine's back!!! I've missed you, honey. Gorgeous snaps and what a shock to the system, it's almost autumnal here.
Loved Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and the following two books are just as fabulous. Steig Larsson had an interesting (and tragically short) life, himself. Blomkquist is definately based on him. xxx

Karoline said...

Glad you are back with such cozy pictures!

Classic Copenhagen said...

Uhm, there is a very special holiday feel to your pictures, I think you did good not opening the photoshop book. It is funny, I missed the updates from you when you were gone :-) Sandra

Morning Cloak said...

These photos are so lovely :)
Also, that's the only complaint I've heard about Girl With A Dragon Tattoo - the crazy detail!

Adele said...

Hope you had a lovely time! I love your hat! I also bought one in Sicily but a bit different! More to keep the sun off then to look good!

My dad was reading 'The girl with the dragon tattoo' whilst we were away and he seemed to love it also!

Ouch, if I think about moving in London in... October practically, it frightens me a bit, even if I love cold weather and rain!!

Rosie Unknown said...

Sounds like an absolutely amazing trip!

I also noticed that, but I found it sort of endearing rather than annoying.
