it's the little things
















































































little things like fresh, crisp, colourful tea towels ... to brighten the kitchen ... to place flowers on to catch the streaming morning sunshine ...

These photos are so lovely and peaceful. I agree--it is the little things that matter. I'm prepping to go teach a 3-hour night class, which always makes me a little blue for some reason (I think it's the three hours in a row and the fact that it's at night), but my husband just made me a homemade glass of Thai iced tea with a sprig of mint. My spirits were lifted so much by this gesture!

just last night, felt like the first night of summer.
my daughter was wearing polka dot undies and we were reading -I asked her if she was a gingham or polka dot gal.
she said " what is gingham? "
I love both the patterns you posted.

There is a lot to be said for simplicity! I love those tea towels. The green, and purple in the flowers. The sunlight and the stems in water. Precious and wonderful!

Beautiful photographs with the light streaming in... I would say things like a smile from someone when you're deep in thought, refreshes you and brings you back to earth, beautifulyy.

tee hee ... i love the 'gingham or polka dot gal' ... and it is funny how gingham seems to be an 'old' word ... thanks ~ i really like the simplicity of these patterns ... i couldn't quite get the fresh green colour that they are with my camera ...

isn't nature so captivating ... how those little birds carry mud ... i guess in their beaks ... a wonder to behold ...
