best before #6

After my 60th birthday, I began a ‘best before‘ theme of shabby chic vintage and faded loveliness, which somehow fizzled out. Having recently come across the Japanese version of this, called Wabi Sabi (the aesthetic of humble beauty), I’ve been inspired to resurrect it.

TO grow older is this:
To feel on the first rose
The breath malign and fell
Of the first icicle,
And in the earliest kiss
The handshake of farewell…
