Charlie Checking.......

 Charlie checking out another couple of treasures found in my travels.
The groovy flower cat caught his attention as it has a butterfly on the end of it's wiggly bouncy wire tail.........


Little Treasures.....

Little treasures found in a charity shop, a fabulous original clay wall hanging and a awesomely funky little wooden box.
The clay girl is completely spectacular, someone put a lot of love in creating her so I shall find a nook in the garden for her to rest in.
And the little box is another quirky work of art, a perfect reminder to keep the symphony of magic in my daily life..........

Raindrops On......

 Raindrops on the butterfly flags caught my attention as I went to greet the morning.
Like tiny diamonds glistening in the sun the perfection of each drop was quite mesmerising.

Seeing the beauty in a single moment keeps life real............



Happiness Is.......

Happiness is two ducks taking a bath in the front garden.

True happiness comes from being present and actually seeing the glorious natural world around you.......

No.....

No
Is a necessary magic

No 
Draws a circle around you 
And says

I have given enough.......

Today...........



Bringing Home....

 Bringing home a little water fountain that I thought the kitty kids might like to have as a source of fresh trickling water but also as something that might help Nala to stop her antics with the water bowl.

I had mixed reactions from all three.
Miss Bear wasn't that impressed but did come briefly to have a look.
Charlie was a tad dumbfounded I think, although he did start to drink from it pretty much straight away. 
Nala was happy to just check it out for an hour or so.......







Happiness Is....

Happiness is.
Three playful kittens.......


From The First Moment....

 From the first moment I saw this little cottage I envisaged it painted a soft lilac with a white trim and veranda posts.
Even in the dreadful state it was in when I first viewed the property I knew that eventually I would make her shine and radiate an inviting peaceful presence.

Finally after years of dreaming I came home with a test pot of paint and went to work yesterday to begin the transformation of the outside of the cottage.

Only having a small pot of paint I decided to paint a small section in between a window and the end of the house.
I am absolutely thrilled with how it looks so far and I even began painting the frame of the stained glass window in the spare room.

It is going to take quite a while to complete the entire house, then I will begin all the veranda posts and roof timbers so I reckon I will painting for a long while to come.
As they say, Rome wasn't built in a day.....

Hearing........

 Hearing the call of the ocean again this morning the insistent whisper getting a little louder and it is becoming harder to resist.

Looking back through some of my photos again this morning had me remembering some of the precious moments I have had whilst strolling along the waters edge.

It appears it is time to make the long drive to the ocean as I really do feel the need for some ocean exploring time once again.
Missing the waves.
The sand.
And the healing touch of the water............



Happiness Is.......

 Happiness is visiting my absolute favourite human and his fur kids.

While we walked around his garden and admired the many buds and flowers whilst simply enjoying being in the presence of nature...
