11.6.15

"Magic is not an exact science, if it were it would be science."


Serenity: Leaves on the Wind

19.3.15


This just came into the shop. It's mine now. It's so beautiful.


The Girl on the Train

17.3.15


Most unexpected but more than that, the people, the women, felt so real. Well, except Anna, but she was only fooling herself.
