22 July 18: Vintage Millenial book shelfie

Hello from Wales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

Ah, I am soooooo overjoyed to be here, not least because I arrived to discover that the books I clustered into a colourful troop at our friend’s house last year (I know: but, honestly, I just can’t help myself) seem to have stayed together in the interim. It was like walking into a joyous reunion with old friends and just picking up where we left off. Aren’t they mesmerisingly beautiful? I’ve been sitting and staring at them, drinking in the colours, and thinking how fascinating that they are vintage books yet such ‘now’ colours: millennial pink, ink blue, gen z yellow and fresh spring green (and a bit of purple thrown in for good measure). I think that’s why I love them so much: they’re  the perfect blend of old and new. When you’re as crazy about colour as me, it’s little things like this that bring big, heart-soaring joy.
