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

  2. LOVE the second image. I'm like you, I can't wait for Autumn (in London and not Spain). So looking forward to doing "cosy" after 12 years in the hot Med x

    1. There is just something sooooo beautiful about autumnal clothing. If memory of an English Summer serves me well Vanessa, you should be into cosy sweaters before too long! LOL!

  3. Wool, cashmere and layers of silk--the clothing of the Goddesses! I love the smell of them all.

  5. Autumn is my favourite time of the year. Perhaps it was because I was born at the end of summer. Followed by spring, winter, then summer. Summer, in my experience, is way too hot. I love the cool and cold. One can always add clothes to warm up; it's harder to be cooler and still meet the requirements of community decency. ;)

    Hope you have a chance to visit V, on the we(s)t coast. I've noticed she hasn't been blogging lately. I hope she is well.

  6. Perhaps that's my reason for loving Autumn so too Rob-bear (the end of July is the end of summer in England!).
    V. is well - just super busy. I will pass along your comment.

  7. I love Autumn for so many reasons. Even though we are into July and we've had on-off rain for weeks and hardly any Summer sunshine so far in the UK, Autumn has a different atmosphere.

    1. I so agree...that turning inward and slowing down is such a great feeling.

  9. I do believe you're beginning to convert me. In future I shall have to begin my winter depression after Christmas.

  10. I can only imagine how beautiful your part of the world is Cro when the air begins to turn crisp!

  11. I adore the autumn images you have chosen. It's my favorite season and I prefer the look of fall/winter clothing to summer wear. All that camel and blue speak to me! Thanks for a lovely post!

    1. Curious you should mention that Sanda...I was mentioning to a girlfriend just yesterday that blue and camel were to be my Autumn colours this year...hadn't realized that I had featured them so prominently in this post! Ah...the power of the subconscious!

  12. Hello Jacqueline, thank you for visiting Lady Mondegreen's Secret Garden and becoming a Follower. I recognise your blog from some of the others I follow. I suspect if there was time to visit every blog followed by every blog we follow there would always be some shared interest or common experience.
    I do like that photo of the coats and the wardrobe mirror.

  13. Oh dear...we finally got our true summer this very week...I can't even beging to think about fall, it fills me with anxiety...I'm already nervous about it...not ready at all, though I completely understand how everybody else would love be done with the tremendous heat and slip into autumn...maybe I'll feel differently when I go to Calif. in a few weeks and roast my buns off in 110* weather, yes, I'm sure that'll do it!
    Thinking of you both...hope all is well,
    xo J~

  14. I've been chatting with Lily and my sister V, Jessica...so I know how chilly you all have been out on the West Coast. This post is definitely not for you!
    Enjoy your warming trend and just ignore this!!!
