Thursday thoughts - where are the days going !!!!!!

Thursday, October 10, 2013

I don't know about you guys but looking at these images takes me to my happy place....It is a bit of a joke in my house but when the conversation gets negative or too intense, I tend to go to my happy place.... I realised pretty early in life that we are on such a precious journey and I think life can be dramatic enough without adding to it so "yes" joke as you will I do spend some time every day in my happy place... Life in my little cottage has and always will be pretty simple.... I enjoy my time with my hazel eyed boy at the kitchen table in the mornings and even when we don't have a lot to say I still love it.... Working away in my studio, putting my clothes on the line, baking, listening to my baby lambs bleat, the neighbours kids playing in the yard are all happy places and the list would go on and on.... So I hope you get some time today to go to your happy place ;)

Vintage my Nina's new book Among Vintage and Friends should be here any day now.....I can't can pre-order it HERE
