Dearest Mamushka Marie followers,
|London, around the corner from our flat|
Here is a bit of what I wrote that day:
"I'm on the train, traveling through Europe as I write this. I'll be in France for the first time in my life in a matter of hours. It feels like I'm having one of those "I'd never have believed it" moments, you know the kind, where when you think back to who you were and how your life used to be- you in no way could have expected THIS, never THIS, amazing, unbelievable THIS. Like when a dream you've had is suddenly realized and even though it's coming true before your very eyes, you are overwhelmed by how you got there."
From my seat next to the window I'm soaking up all I can of my surroundings. The countryside is so lovely and inviting, I can almost feel the crispness of the air, the leaves all fallen off of their branches, above them, bright blue sky. I suppose it's only natural to reflect upon ones life when presented with experiences like this... "

Some exciting new changes are happening at the vintage shop I co-run, beginning in July we'll be changing over from small vintage boutique to a growing vintage collective! (some of you may be familiar with similarly run Down at Lulu's in San Francisco.) As a result, i'll be splitting my time at the new shop with what else (!?) but a new online vintage shop AND corresponding blog! So welcome friends to Daylily Vintage! I'd be honored and oh-so-pleased if you'd follow along on this old but new journey I'm embarking on. I've also recently joined twitter (I know, I know i'm like a grandma when it comes to technology - bear with the newbie/advice please!?) as well as pinteresting like a crazy person and i'm on instagram as well (clairenouveau). So with that I'm signing off here at Mamushka Marie for the very last time. Leave me a note over at the new blog so we can keep in touch! I'd truly love to hear from you.
