Lolly Buttons!

19 May

A little something for a random Thursday – me playing around with my photos!  These little buttons I bought really do look good enough to eat! Those pastel colours make them look like lolly buttons – yum!

All The Small Things…

16 Apr

Small things – our whole world is made up of these tiny little building blocks, and they are to be found everywhere, forming and making up every part of our earthly existence. As part of this month’s topic over at the wonderful Creative Everyday 2011 Challenge, Small, I have put together this series of every day small things and moments I am grateful for. This is to remind me that everywhere I look, wherever I am, whatever I do, there is more to my world than meets the eye, and joy really can be found in the small and simple things!

“All great things are only a number of small things that have been carefully collected together” – Unknown

A single page when bound with many others, brings me the beauty of my notebooks, on which I write the stories of my life, composed by the tiny details of my daily events, all lovingly recorded in small, loopy handwriting all over the lovely lined pages

One tiny berry by tiny berry can I create a healthy body from the inside out, made up of teeny tiny essential vitamins and minerals I can’t even see! But I know they are there when I see the healthy skin and happy glow when I look into the mirror!

The  vibrant petals of the beautiful spring flowers, delicate and elegant, open to receive each new day

Little creatures come out to play in the spring sunshine- the joy of  watching the lady beetle sunning herself on my white-washed window-sill!

The delicate detail on my silver bracelet – those little, hand-crafted swirls are too cute, and make me smile whenever I wear it!

Weekly Photo Challenge – Shadow

7 Mar

I took this photo at Roslyn Chapel in Scotland. It was a beautiful sunny day, and the shadow of the construction support beams surrounding the chapel ( it is currently being restored) caught my attention.

This photo of these ‘ foxtails’ were taken in the Atacama Desert in Chile in March last year. They created the perfect boundary between the oasis where they were growing and the rest of the barren Atacama Desert. The incredible colour contrast between the sky and the foxtails is what inspired me to take this picture.

Winter Wonderland

7 Feb

Even though it hasn’t snowed like this in Edinburgh for a few weeks, I thought I’d share the memory as the weather gets colder again. This was taken at the park just down the road from my flat – it was a beautiful afternoon and the snow was freshly fallen from the night before. All was still and quiet, and frosty – so peaceful.
