Simple Things, always the best


fields of wild flowers
soft breeze through open windows
gentle swing of a hammock
starry night skies
brand new paintbrush
cerulean blue
smell of toast
red currant jam
salty ocean tang
soft dawn
misty mornings
the moon "daylighting"

soft rain
freshly made bed
smell of bookstores
cats paws
dog smiles
a proper cup of tea
fountain pens
writing lists of simple pleasures

Christina at Soul Aperture is having a birthday today:) Pop over and say hello. Simple Things is a birthday surprise for her organized by Se'lah.

Your photos are simply lovely. Simple + peaceful + lovely.

And yes - to everything on your list.

Your photos are beautiful. I'm head over heals for that second one. I have a thing for fog (I guess I moved to the right place).

What a lovely blog you have! And yes aren't cat paws the most wonderful little things in the world? So glad to be part of Christina's celebration and read all the wonderful tributes!

Hi, Shelagh! I absolutely ADORE the center picture - the home on the hill in the mist with the moon. It could inspire stories! So much there! Thanks for sharing it! :-)
