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

    1. Autumn in the UK - never mind Wales - can be a challenge John. You need to experience one glorious Canadian autumn and you will be a convert, I promise.
      ...and thank you for the nice compliment!..

  3. I'm afraid Bears aren't much interested in dresses. But autumn is a wonderful, holding the promise of a long winter's nap. I think I'm just about ready.

    Hope your husband is doing well!

  6. All those gorgeous sweaters, warm coats and knee length socks, chunky scarves with matching handbags - yes I can go along with that. Log fires and hot drinks, autumn colours, morning mist, low afternoon sun - yes please! Cold grey mornings,dark at seven,quagmire, floods and gales - think I'll pass on those.

  8. Wonderful clothes - I can just imagine fall in Niagara on the Lake. Still spring is beginning to make its presence felt here.

    1. It must be as strange for you to think of September and October as autumn months as it is for me to think of them as Spring SH!

  9. I feel cashmere all through your wardrobe. Right? And wrapped in the hug of such stuff, not much can make us feel bad. So all summer you've been waiting for the excuse, the reason, the bliss of those tender, light enfoldings. Welcome home!

    Now I'll go clean out my own closet. I am inspired. Thank you!

  10. Love the second sweater!! .. and the colors are gorgeous. Cashmere in camel is stunning and those long socks are fun and would be perfect for our cold winters here in the pacific northwest. We've been fortunate to have a long string of sunny, cool days .. the darkness and cold temps will be here soon so I'm trying to enjoy this while it lasts!
