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 world...to 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

Friday Photo Challenge

this week is
"The Top of My Dresser"

Lord, love-a-duck...how to make that even vaguely interesting!

You see, the top of my dresser looks like this...


...truly...all the time.

It has some interesting heart pieces, in glass and leather and metal,




(why hearts? as a reminder that the bedroom should
always be about romance)

But...as pictures go...boring!



What I think is much more interesting,
are two paintings I have just above my dresser top
by the artist 





I have four other pieces by this artist in the house






this is one of my favourites.  I always think if they
opened the top of my husband's head, all
this stuff would come bursting out!




I love the vibrancy of the colours, but more than that,
the tenderness of each of the expressions of his subjects.

So there you have it Chania...
hope I haven't bent the rules of the game too far!

  4. I like your hearts, but I LOVE those paintings, especially the one with all the escaping thoughts and gizmos from the gentlemen's head. Rules are meant to be bent, I say. ann

  5. I love you J.
    You are so real.
    I would have run around the house looking for things to put on my dresser to make a photo.
    Those paintings are a little too colourful for me...you know me...all pink and white and yellow and sickly sweet! LOL

  6. Wow, you are so neat. i would love to have my dresser look like that, but my junk and underwear always seem to get piled on top. It lacks artistry.
