tea party

yesterday my mother and i hosted the sweetest little tea party! there were strawberries and cakes (actually, there was so much food it seemed like the table just kept getting fuller and fuller!) and mix and match teacups. it was fun to have girl time and giggle, share stories, and play parlor games with one another. tea parties really are one of my favorite things. these photos also remind me that i need to take some pictures of myself some time! i still haven't done that with my new camera!

hi! i'm Lena, but you can call me Lulu. i love Frida Kahlo, feminism, art, reading, kitties, and drinking tea. i love the film Amelie and i think that the tiny traveling gnome has stolen my heart. i want to own a bookshop and live above it one day. i get quite passionate about things. i tend to think too much. i'm kind of a hermit.
