Weekly Gathering of Joy



Gala Darling

oh joy

Slim Aarons


I stumble across so much JOY online, I really need to be sharing more of this for you. So this is the first of a new series called “Weekly Gathering of Joy” .. we all need more joy, the world needs more joy, especially here online where at times there is too much of the opposite.

From the top:

Janneke is one of my favourite photographers, and this shoot for local label Lilya reminded me that Summer is coming to an end this weekend. As much as I find joy in the ocean, balmy nights and salty hair .. I also adore the change in season and slightly less humidity!

This workspace featured on decor8 had me dreaming and rearranging this week! So much beautiful light, clean white and the perfect little pops of colour.

This bedroom .. in a Gala Darling post about making your rooms more magical. Stunning, especially the photos and the mix of natural and candle light.

60 ways to create and give joy .. in a book! So perfectly me, and now available for pre order with a gift here!

Slim Aarons prints are getting me all excited about a bit of a change to my living room walls .. I think this one is my favourite.

Where did you find your joy online this week? I would love to explore some of your favourite places too xx



A collection of good things for you!

 collection 1

It is no secret that I spend a high proportion of my time here, online, behind my beautiful silver Mac. My family know that this is my place..they know that this is where Mummy works, where Mummy does a lot of her charity work and where Mummy shares a lot of her stories so that others feel less alone.

Besides the sharing of stories, I always find it really helpful when other bloggers share their favourite corners of the online world and the good things that have made a difference in their lives. It is endless, life is abundant with goodness and choice! It is my hope to create a regular collection of the good things that I have come across, experienced and read that I want to share, the things that have made a difference to me.

So here is my first collection of good things for you. Please do let me know if you find something new..learn something that makes your life a little better or if you would like me to share something specific in my next collection of good things!
