simple happiness...

Today the lovely Christina from Soul Aperture is hosting a 'simple things that make you happy day' today June the 10th, for no other reason than, well, just because... :) Here are my thoughts...


My creation

I had to reign myself in, as there as so many simple things which make me happy!

* things that are handmade, especially made with care and love
* fresh flowers, (especially in jam jars)
* books in any form but especially library books because they're free! (yippeee!)
* fresh bed linen and lie ins! (something so nice about a bed freshly made)
* home made granola, so tasty and just the thing to start the day
* string - because it's lovely to look at, (who doesn't love string?!)
* lovely, lovely light, (oh how I love the light!)
* the scent of washing drying outside
* seedheads - as much as I love the fresh flowers, there's something so beautiful about what comes next...

other things...*fairy lights*the magic of seedlings*fireworks*being brought tea in bed*nature in all forms*sunlight through leaves*the scent of oranges*daisy chains*eating outside*fresh bread*sunshine*blackbird song*taking photos*tattoos*wooden floors*art galleries*the seaside*plain paper journals...and the list goes on and on...what makes you happy?

You are I believe the third one that love the simple feeling of fresh sheets on the bed.. I wished I had said that too but next time.. I just rubbed my body all in and around the crisp sheets. Beautiful photos and beautiful list! Stopped by from Soul Aperture..

when I started wrapping gifts on my own, I was so excited to wrap them with brown paper and string (possibly because I loved the "brown paper packages tied up with string .." song as well as the simple beauty

love this list so much - and the simple beauty of all the photos

I found my way to you via Christina. Hasn't this been lovely? I wanted to tell you how much I love your mosaic. And your list. So many times I said to myself, "Yes. Oh. That one, too. Yes!"

Catherine said...
