Once and again~ FLEUR + ULLA

MORE FLEUR shared by fellow blogger ULLA. Ulla left a Daily Mail link about FLEUR in comments about my yesterday's post- a homage to FLEUR COWLES.

ULLA has a fashionable blog MODEL'S OWN that I follow. A model- Ulla features gorgeous photographs of fashion first hand, along with her musings about fashion-past, present-future and the fashionable world of design and art. Her blog came to my attention- when An Aesthete's Lament -my absolute FAVORITE blog around, (and I know I won't be stepping on any toes-as I suspect there are many bloggers out & about that would say the same thing) wrote about designer extraordinaire Nicky Haslam. I fantasize about having NH decorate for me- IF only I could -I would. But more about NH another day, another post.

When the Aesthete wrote about HASLAM- Ulla commented that she was an intern for the fabulous Nicky Haslam when she lived in London. She said "He was a delight to work for and I learned so much, he really is one of the best and always in a great mood. Thank you Nicky!" - I immediately thought- this is a girl I can learn from and have enjoyed her blog ever since!

here is the link ULLA sent me "the working-class girl who became the last great society hostess" by Geoffrey Levy in MAIL Online (the Daily Mail). The story is NEW chock full of FLEUR COWLES.
