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

First Blog Love

As I gently wind my way towards two-years of blogging,
I reflect on what brought me here in the first place.

all the above images come from Zsa Zsa Bellagio.

This was the first blog I ever read, the first blog I fell in love with.

It existed in another incarnation, but no matter. 

She went away for a while, but came back more beautiful than ever.

This blog is a feast for the eyes.





  1. Congratulations on two year of blogging

    Thank you for the lead to Zsa Zsa's blog, I am scooting right over.

  3. Two years blogging! Hasn't the time gone quickly. I started blogging around two years ago too. The pictures are lovely. I tend to go back time and time again to my favourite blogs, J, perhaps they're most like who we are.

    I love Zsa Zsa's blog too, a sumptuous feast for the senses.

  6. Hello Jacqueline

    I want to thank you sincerely for introducing me to Zsa Zsa Bellagio's blog. One your recommendation I visited her, I had not run across her before.

    Well Jacqueline, I was thrilled to find she used me and my art as her featured post this past Saturday.
    This was so unexpected and such a delightful surprise. She had not contacted me prior to posting and had done all this research and found paintings of mine on her own.

    I want to thank you again for the introduction and secondly for being the link to making this happen.
    May your week be full of joy.

    Thank you
    Helen Tilston xxx

    1. I was thrilled when I saw you there too Helen. Art will find a way!


Go on...make my day...
