Fashionable Friday : Agent Violet and the Venetian Mirror

Agent Violet checked the view and re-checked it twice. That made it a total of thrice ~ and it still looked the same.  Venice.

It had been a breathtaking 24 hours since she opened the door to her apartment after Sir Percy's soirée and one of the secrets enclosed within the Harlequin Hat Box had revealed itself to her.  24 hours or more.  Or less.  It was dawning on her that perhaps it was irrelevant.  Time as she knew it might never be the same again. 

Venice.  Mystery and romance shimmered in its incandescent light and her mind drifted back to the last time she had been there.  Carnevale.  Secrets exchanged with knowing glances.  The heady fragrance of tobacco-fumed jasmine and nobility.  Her canine looked at her enquiringly and her feline toyed with her ruffled silk skirt.  She looked at the calling card still in her hand.  Percy.  Where are you now?

Did Violet's cape make the journey? Were her canine's favourite chew toys available here? And would The Gondolier recognise her or have they not even met yet?  Let us gaze at the bubbles in our prosecco and wonder what they know that we do not.  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you !


  1. I am thinking of that kitty playing with that skirt. Kitty will be delicate and keep her claws to herself, I'm sure.

    I've gotten here first again and I wonder if it's because I'm on the west coast of the US. Alexa should be asleep by now, but it's not too late for me to sip my prosecco.

    1. Kitty thoughtfully keeps her claws sheathed around delicates, Petrea ... unlike most, I venture to say!

      Alexa might be checking out the credentials of The Gondolier before joining us ... ;)


Merci, grazie, thank you for joining our conversation lounge. Your smile lights up the room. Even more beautifully than our crystal chandelier. x
