You must all know by now that Olive is, first and foremost and forever, a reader. Raised on a diet of Nancy Drew and Anne Shirley, tremulously stepping into adulthood with the help of Jane Eyre and Bertie Wooster (disparate, she knows), and flowering (hopefully) under the watchful eye of dear Hemingway, Chandler, and Fitzgerald (where to stop?), there is a good reason Olive owns seven pairs of glasses.
Thus, it was probably inevitable that the Olive tree should spring a new branch. Indeed, it is with great pleasure, and not a little bit of parental pride, that Olive is pleased to present... Olive Reads! Here she shall continue those "genial voyages of imagination and elegance," but with a more literary bent. Please do pop over for a visit! There is a special place reserved for original visitors to the Olive universe, those fellow travelers just like yourself.
With a nose soon to pop back in her book,

I've always been a bit flummoxed over what to do with the plethora of images I find online everyday. It's all well and good to keep a file on your desktop of glorious editorial photos, vintage images, and shopping inspiration, but rather pointless if you can't readily see them.
So Olive say "hurrah" to the chaps at Pinterest! At last someplace to organize, share, and discover even more pictures to set the heart racing. See if my images do the same for you here, and then share your pinterest board with me!
PS. Well Friday already? It's always a funny week when Monday is a holiday. What special plans do you have for the weekend? Speaking of inspirational images, I am finishing up this wonderful hardcover book on art in Paris between the wars. Highly recommended, and sure to get you twitching for a paintbrush, or maybe even a trip to the art gallery.
