Fairy lights and fossils.

After all the stress and darkness of the last few days I decided to remind myself of the good things.

Here are just some of them.

This is our mantelpiece. Fairy lights, fossils, a rose, sweet peas, chamomile, lavender and thyme in my Mum's old cottage jug, crystals (the glowy one is labradorite) and the 1950's clock I bought myself for my birthday with gift money (and my painting reflected in the mirror).

Big tomatoes surviving tomato blight.

Free blackberries from the bottom of the garden.

And more to come.

Beautiful sunsets.

Laughing catton.

Surprised catton.

Sleepy cattons keeping their Dad warm.

Wild ponies on Dartmoor.

That don't mind you getting close.

The rose we bought the day we collected George from the hospital. It smells so sweet.

Our little patch of dirt.


Making new things with space for names.


Oh, and the most goodest thing of all good things?

You have to ask?



  1. I'm glad you were able to peek out from under the dark cloak to have a look around at the "good" things in your life. They made me smile and ponder my own. (((HUGS))) during this extra dark time.

  2. This is a very sweet post!

    Yes, funky! The bracelet is lovely.

  3. Your pictures are so beautiful. I just love looking at them!

  4. You have such a beautiful garden!

  5. Thanks for sharing your love, B. Sending you the best for better days ahead.

  6. Gorgeous post and I had a big cheesy grin on my face the whole way through. I soooooooooo want to visit your lovely home.

  7. The kitty pics cracked me up!
    THanks for reminding me there are some good things around - I just have to look harder to see them. Maybe I'll try a little vision readjustment this weekend.

  8. Funky indeed- and timely. My objective for tomorrow is to look for my own good things. Oops- already started- you're one of them!

  9. Your beautiful and I wanna come to your house :)

  14. Oh Barbara - we have been under a very similar cloak. I didn't know that it could stretch worlds apart.

    I have missed much here, but had to focus for a while on my here and now even it if hurt like hell.
