In focus: turquoise items

With the table and the stool painted turquoise I am more aware of the colour when I see it, especially in my own home. I’ve obviously been drawn to it for several years without taking notice. The glass bowl, behind the rose patterned candle on my bed side table, was a gift from my brother […]

The importance of a Home

A Cat Moved In

Suddenly I’m out of words. Maybe this picture will reveal some of my feelings of happiness, serenity and peace… A cat has moved in! I’ve never had a cat before. And now she lives here, with us. She jumped into my lap (once) and she comes when I call her. It’s such an amazing feeling […]
