Ryou looked down at the note and blinked. She wondered what it might have meant. Was it a warning? A hint? She hummed to herself and glanced at the clock. It was already getting late. She nodded to herself and headed towards her sitting room, Then to her bedroom, Curious as to what the note might mean.
She blinked in dull confusion and tilted her head. “How am I cute?” she asked, Yawning. “And I slept very well next to you.” she leaned in to kiss her. “What about yourself?” she asked, Humming and moving into her again, Still warm from sleep.
"You just are, you don’t need a reason to be." She smiled, curling a leg around hers. "I slept wonderfully. When I woke you were still out and, gosh, you’re just so beautiful…"
She listened to the other, Blushing too dark for her skin to handle. “Well then, You should see yourself.” she replied with a small nod. “I can’t even look at you half the time because you’re so ungodly beautiful. I feel as if I’ll turn into stone!” she smiled.
"Oh corny are we~?" She moved and crawled over her, resting her arms by her head. "No… really… You’re absolutely beautiful, for the moment don’t turn it back on me, you’re stunning and I’m so so lucky…" Bakura smiled and kissed her.
She smiled at the question, But then pouted a bit at the slight demand. She liked complimenting the other, She really did. She took in a breath and nodded though, Taking it in with a blush. “Thank you. You really are very sweet.” she smiled and kissed her in return.
"Alright, I’m done doting, if you wish to take your turn being sweet you may, but you really don’t have to celebrate my birthday."
"That is a lie, My love. And it’s not very polite to lie, Especially to those you love." she grinned and leaned in, Kissing at her neck.

The Withdrawing Room at Kedleston Hall, Derbyshire.
Some of the things I like the most about "The Duchess" is that it was entirely filmed on location, so for the scenes at Geogiana’s mother’s house they use this room at Kedleston Hall, originally used by the women of the house to entertain themselves. Being this house designed in 1765 by Robert Adam, not only the interior design but the furniture and some art was commissioned by Adam exclusively for the house.

Kedleston Hall, Derbyshire, England.
Built by Thomas Paine, Robert Adam and Matthew Brettingham in 1759.
1740s stays reproduction.
No secret for anyone Merja (from Before the Automobile) is one of my favourite costumers and bloggers and there is no one who can judge me for that: she sews by hand her reproduction garments and ALWAYS has the right shape, fabric, finishing, trims and (of course) style.
This is her reproduction of a pair of 1740s stays and my favourite part of this are all the quilted boning channels in contrast thread.
You can read her full post HERE.
