Memories of this summer

Some of the things that made me smile this week:

Exquisite summer blooms

Finding the perfect present for a friend: a cup of chocolate mushrooms and truffles.

Receiving a surprise gift from Japan: a charming owl quartet containing charcoal powder for vanquishing damp odors.

A fairytale-like carousel

Have a good week ahead, everyone!
