Layout: Reason I Love You No.826

Hi there. Happy Friday to one and all.

How's it going? Me?  Well, all in all ... Friday's treating my pretty well:

I've had someone buy 4 of my collages from my etsy shop overnight; I've posted those plus some magazine projects off; I've eaten a vanilla slice [the bakery is next door to the Post Office ... so it was inevitable really] and I bought 3 amazing retro aprons [which I might sell on etsy ... or I might just keep!] on my way back, then found a tiny ever-so-lovely pink poppy growing in a crack in the pavement at the top of our drive.

So, in the spirit of all things fortunate-yet-rather-random ...

I thought I'd share my latest scrapbook page as it feautures a mundane, everyday, domestic moment ... which makes me smile and strikes me as worthy of capturing:

The journaling pretty much speaks for itself:

It really is the little things in life - the vanilla slices, vintage aprons and kind hearted men -
that make the world go around, isn't it?

I hope there's an ordinary treasure making your day today.  [If there isn't - go look in your nearest secondhand shop or in a crack in the pavement ... and I bet you find something to make you smile ... !]

See you soon.
