You know how when you go past something every day for a long time you eventually stop seeing it? .  . I stopped in my tracks on the steps leading to our back door because I suddenly noticed these green bottles. They have been sitting on that outdoor window ledge for years (as has the dirt on the windows ) One of my lovely family had put a branch of my favourite pine cones up there and it made me smile that they had popped it there as if on display.

Look what just happened! After a week of stormy weather weve been given a sunbeam. .  No time to brush the hearth or do any faffing these sunbeam moments are fleeting; northern Brittany keeps a  winter-grey grip on November! .  These drying out hydrangeas are the last of the colour in my garden so expect them to feature rather prominently in several of these squares  .  Hope you can enjoy some sunbeam moments too as we start a new week. . . #createandmend  #createinspirepositivity… New Week, Hydrangeas, Hearth, Brittany, Squares, Candle Holders, November, Weather, In This Moment
