When I am bad and will not stay and listen to my mother, they send me here to play and say I'm naughty and a bother.

If it's true and love is found so hidden in the water, drown me deep and I will sleep and dream all I desire.

  3. Virginia: Thank you! :)

    Cinnamon: Indeed. Thank you lovely!

    Hannah: I found them all on weheartit.com. The first is a picture of Bennett School for Girls, an old school in the New York countryside that was abandoned several centuries ago, and still stands. The middle two are from the beautiful film, 'Cracks'.

  6. My beauty. Even short posts such as this are so lovely and enchanting, as is all that you create. ♥ I do so hope that love can be found buried deep underwater. Perhaps we should become mermaids. I did always want to go searching for a shipwreck and the skeleton of a sea captain. Sorry, I'm daydreaming. It's easy to do whenever I visit your blog. All my love, x

  7. Julia, me too. xx

    Jhordyn: Thank you unicorn princess. ;)

    Katie; If I could live anywhere, I would live there. x

    Thea: I too have a fascination with the sea (the largely unexplored Pacific, especially). Thank you dearest, I feel similarly when I read your words. I wish you would let us comment again so we can tell you how beautiful you are. xx

  8. Oh, this post is so interesting and lovely! It inspires so many trains of thought in my mind. <3

    The first picture is my favourite! I could imagine that it is haunted by the ghosts of girls with pinafores and plaits who have never stoppped doing their lessons.

  10. Melee: I secretly wish, when I am old and weathered, to buy that house and renovate it and name it after myself and restart the school. xx

    Kaleidoscope girl: Thank you! x

    Autumn: Unfortunately for dreamers like us, being sent away is expensive. xx

  15. Wow, wow! I love this post! You've creatively combined all these pictures so that they tell such an intriguing story. I love the idea of these girls who may or may not be trouble, and how they spend their time together. Haunting and dreamy.
