An Inspirational Book

I was given this book as a gift

It is so strange how relevant the answers are in the way  I use it

unique Handmade Cards & Pictures

Lovely Handmade Cards and Bamboo Mounted photographic Art

Millie is a gentle kind soul, she is passionate about the environment & the planet we live in. She looks at life very artistically, and has a fine eye for detail.

Her shop has beautiful cards, water colour hand painted mushrooms and  prints taken  from her own original photographs.  

Thought Of The Day

An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind. 

Italian Beauty

My Italian Beauty Case

I have just bought this beautiful  vintage leather travel case from Etsy 

It was found in a vintage market in Rome Italy

I thought my lovely skin care products would look great in side

I always wonder who has owned vintage items before me and in this case if it has travelled far

You never know one day it might get to travel far with me

In A Dark Night
In a dark time, the eye begins to see, I meet my shadow in the deepening shade; I hear my echo in the echoing wood-- A lord of nature weeping to a tree. I live between the heron and the wren, Beasts of the hill and serpents of the den. What's madness but nobility of soul At odds with circumstance? The day's on fire! I know the purity of pure despair, My shadow pinned against a sweating wall, That place among the rocks--is it a cave, Or winding path? The edge is what I have. A steady stream of correspondences! A night flowing with birds, a ragged moon, And in broad day the midnight come again! A man goes far to find out what he is-- Death of the self in a long, tearless night, All natural shapes blazing unnatural light. Dark, dark my light, and darker my desire. My soul, like some heat-maddened summer fly, Keeps buzzing at the sill. Which I is _I_? A fallen man, I climb out of my fear. The mind enters itself, and God the mind, And one is One, free in the tearing wind. -- Theodore Roethke

Thought Of The Day

After a visit to the beach, it’s hard to believe that we live in a material world. ~Pam Shaw The real measure of your wealth is how much you’d be worth if you lost all your money.

If only

If only I could .....

Afford to buy all my groceries locally, I just love getting fruit in brown paper bags. I collected paper bags when I was small, Mrs Smith would wrap my fruit in a brown paper bag and write my name on it for my break time at nursery. If I close my eyes I can recall the sweet smell of apples and the brown paper like it was yesterday.
Unfortunately I can also remember clinging onto every lamp and gate post on the way screaming that I did not want to go..... my poor mother.

Make every one write in pen and ink, there is nothing nicer than giving or receiving a letter written in real ink.

Have a shop with antique haberdashery shop fittings, selling my skin care products and vintage collectables.

Live in a remote house on the coast in the highlands of Scotland with my family and have piggies and chickens in the yard.

I still am a secret paper bag collector, but shush your the only one who knows so keep it a secret.

Find a way to thank my family and special friends for all they do and the support they give me, free soap for life might just help a bit.

Find someone else to write on my blog but me xxx

I Love
