Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

Hot, Hotter, Hottest

Hot, hot, hot here today, humidex is off the scale so 30s feel like 40s.  I've stuck my nose out side twice today, once for an early morning (still hot) walk and then a little later to water the garden.  Don't get me wrong, I am certainly not complaining, just thinking about some inspiration for staying cool...

Vivienne Leigh (Street Car Named Desire)

Liz Taylor (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof)

Marilyn Monroe (Some Like It Hot)

Sophia Loren (Houseboat)

These girls managed not to wilt in the heat of the summer...I think I need to channel my inner-movie-star!


  1. I'll go for Sophia, love her style.
    Wishing you a happy Monday! xx

  2. That's perfect! What a "cool" round up!

  3. Cool and lovely ladies. This heat is mad.....We actually had to turn on the AC at the cottage because my old dog can't manage on days like this.

  4. But how cool and relaxing your evening stroll in cottage country looked Chania.

  5. Poor girl you...yes the sun is nice but not when it is so hot you can not enjoy it outside. Our BC weather has been so wet and cold. Yesterday was the first nice day in a long time..the heat could be coming our way soon.
    Hugs for a great day ...hope it is just a wee bit cooler for you. xoxo

  6. How did these ladies pull it off??? Such a mystery!


Go on...make my day...
