Ordinary Sparkling Moments to Snap

Dear diary... (Copyright Hanna Andersson)
I’m making tabs for my diary.

Some photos from everyday life. The Diptych Project has inspired me to take more photos, and I’m finding I really enjoy the simple and just-as-it-is right now quality of life.

Animal Illustrations for my brother
I drew these illustrations of animals 16 years ago when my brother was born, to hang on the wall by the crib… I can’t believe these are still hanging on the wall!

I carved another stamp, a guggla owl. It looks like he has lots to say to me already.

I won this book on Elsa Mora’s blog last month:

Reading Ordinary Sparkling Moments
It’s called Ordinary Sparkling Moments: Reflections on Success and Contentment by Christina Mason Miller. It’s a self published book with artsy background and handwritten text. I love the title and the thoughts, but right now it didn’t really speak to me. Maybe I’ll re-read it later this year. The title inspired the title of this post, because just like everyday luxury “ordinary moments that sparkle” is something I truly live by and believe in.

Take care! xoxox

  2. Wonderful photos – I love to find beauty and something special in the everyday things around us. I love your mom’s socks – I need to get confident enough to make a pair myself.

  3. Vardagsbilder, va kul! T?nk att vardagen kan se s? vacker och sp?nnande ut p? n?gra f? bilder. :) Tycker tavlorna som du m?lade n?r du var yngre ?r s? otroligt snyggt upph?ngda, ?lskar b?de motiven och f?rgerna p? ramar och v?ggen.


  4. Wonderful post, very inspiring. My life is quite difficult at the moment, and it gaves me the oportunity to think at everyday’s little pleasures.
    Thanks a lot, Hanna !
