Just a small place where I can gather my all time favourite blogs in no particular order

anonymous asked:

good evening! i love your blog and just wanted to stop by and ask if you have any blog recommendations?

Hi! Thank you 💕 I have so many favourites, you should really just check out those who I reblog from frequently, but my very favourites are: 

@autumnmoons, @heather-dove, @unknown–martyrs, @lucasta, @ophiolatreia@huhne, @milkeyedmenders@dianics, @lesgardenias, @hannahjb, @milkteeth18, @mushroompicking, @eveninglesbian@rosynectar, @clockworkreverie and @tree-stump-palace… I’m definitely forgetting some but that’s probably enough now anyway xx

“I fancy I did hear somebody moving about,” said Mary, “but I didn’t think much about it.”
“Quite right,” said Peter, “when I hear people movin’ about the house at night, I’m much too delicate-minded to think anything at all.”
“Of course,” interposed the Duchess, “particularly in England, where it is so oddly improper to think. I will say for Peter that, if he can put a continental interpretation on anything, he will–so considerate of you, dear, as soon as you took to doing it in silence and not mentioning it, as you so intelligently did as a child. You were really a very observant little boy, dear.”

–Dorothy L. Sayers, Clouds of Witness, Chapter IX. “Goyles,” 1927.
