A thing or two...

It's been a while, hope you are all well and keeping busy...A thing or two have happened while I was away...
I've become an aunt again (joy!) my sis had a baby girl last week, little Sienna, she's adorable...my best friend's husband went to hospital to receive intense chemotherapy for his condition (mylofibrosis slowly turning into aml), I had a birthday (which seems so not noteworthy) and started teaching again. I've come to the realisation (even more now) that life needs to be lived to the max, every minute of everyday, there's no other way...
For this reason (I think) I have been attracted more to "real, everyday images" this week...below are my favourites, hope you enjoy x

colour therapy

Often when it's wet and miserable outside all I need is a nice cup of tea, and a magazine...and I like to search the net for happy, cozy and inspirational homes...
Found this lovely one on design sponge  - best cure for almost anything! (design sponge that is;))







Hope you are all having a colourful, happy day!
