#100happydays / Simplicity

Day 4 of the #100happydayschallenge and as I stepped outside the back door this evening I was struck by the beauty of the skyline. The simplicity of the ordinary and mundane is underrated. I stood and marveled at the beauty that resides so close to me at all times and resolved to take notice of the ordinary and mundane more often. The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your […]

Day 98 Sunday May 25th This made me very happy and very excited!! Since discovering Lucy’s M.I.L.K (www.madeinlucyskitchen.com)  products over a year ago I have become a little addicted to her beautiful soaps and fragrant body scrub. Everyone in the house loves her gorgeous bath melts. Even my other half is a fan and uses M.I.L.K shaving balm most mornings. I love to have a few spare bars of soap in the house to give to […]

Day 95 Thursday May 22nd I have been asked to  collaborate on a project by the owner of Made In Lucy’s Kitchen and I am very excited about it! These are samples I made to show Lucy,  fingers crossed they are what she is looking for.  Seize every opportunity along the way, for how sad it would be if the road you chose became the road not taken. ~Robert Brault

We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating […]

Day 91 Sunday May 18th A big hello and thank you to all those who have recently followed my blog. I really appreciate you stopping by and taking the time to read my ramblings. Feel free to comment anytime. I have posted a photo of this tree before but it was taken at night whilst the rain poured down. It didn’t show the vibrant yellow blooms that are eagerly awaited each May. Not sure this […]

Day 84 Sunday May 11th I’ve spent the last hour or so lost in the pages of a book. Tiny bit bereft that I’m finished but nothing beats the wonderful feeling of being lost in a story and becoming more and more invested in the characters welfare as each page is turned….. Ah well, before I start a new one I’d better wash the dishes! “Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved […]
