simple things that make the heart sing...

Yay! Once again the lovely christina of Soul Aperture is hosting a simple things day today, go and take a peek! Here are mine...

My creation

* Walking in the garden after the rain when everything is still
* Ordinary love - you know the day to day stuff rather than grand gestures
* Sitting somewhere comfy with my embroidery and just going with the flow...
* Baking - especially making cupcakes at the moment! (coconut ones - yum!)
* The fairy lights around my bed which shine like stars in the night
* Dreams of flying when you can float and swoop to your hearts content!
* The view at dusk from my sitting room window with my clematis silhouette
* Bubbles! Hands up who doesn't smile when they see them!
* The moment you go through the sand dunes and finally see the sea - yipeee!

what are yours?...

Jac! Your list is fantastic...I love everything on it especially the "ordinary love"...totally agree with you! Cupcakes..had a craze going on there myself not so long ago but am on my "diet" now so everybody suffers..no goodies for hubby these days! And, yes it is lovely to get an insight into what's important to people!

Oh, how lovely your list is, Jac! My heart beats, yes, YES, to each one! :o) "Ordinary love..." I so agree...it's the little every days snippet of love, the little gestures that means so very much. I adore fairy lights and have a long string of heart-shaped lights in my studio--they make me happy. Your photos are beautiful and inspgiring. So glad to have met you and found your blog which is fully of magic and delight. Happy Day! :o)

Had to come back and look at this beauty. Wow! Did you use a lens baby for the hearts on the car? So talented.

Jac said...

Thanks guys! Christina what is a lens baby? Sounds kind of cute - I must google! No I just cut a circle out of card the same diameter as my lens and then cut a heart shape out of it and slotted it in. This was taken with my 50mm! :)

Thanks for your honest opinion, I've also seen the pilot and didn't understand what all of the hype was about. I really wanted to like it but also felt that it could have been smarter and funnier.
