I signed up for the @xantheb #handmadefilmmaking course. I already know how to make films with my big camera (thanks to previous Xanthe courses) but I really wanted to challenge myself to make film just with my phone. . It’s such a great challenge. As always Xanthe is an amazing technical teacher and I’m really enjoying the limitations and equally the freedom of phone only. . This is Saturday, it’s nowhere near as pretty as I would wish. But that’s good, because everything I learned from shooting and editing yesterday will hopefully mean that today will look better. And so on 😊 . . . . #wholeheartedliving #untoldvisuals

Late afternoon yesterday from the window of the staff room, the sky like a cloak of gold and blue, swishing past the spire of Liverpool’s catholic cathedral (aka Paddy’s Wigwam). ✨ Snow fell earlier in the day; large, thick flakes that hinted at sticking until the rain arrived and washed our hopes of a snow day away. ✨ Feeling encouraged by the gradually later sunsets but secretly savouring evenings by the fire thinking up walks/weekends/plans for the year ahead. . . . #liverpool #sunset #winterwatch #myalmanacmoment #january #winter #newyear #mywintermoment #savourtheseasonalshift #seeing_the_ordinary #thiswintermoment #nature #mystoryoflight #smallmomentsofcalm #ofsimplethings #aseasonalyear

Given that I’m not likely to make it to the newly opened @ohcurio shop, I’m making do with this little haul of goodies from their online store. Always a delight to open the box and see what’s inside. And now I’m desperate for some mini eggs to faff with those teeny birds’ nests 🐣💕

Happy Friday! Tonight will be a quiet night at home after a rather busy week. The weather is turning colder again, so this weekend I will take it slow and rejuvenate my spirit. Do you have a busy weekend planned or are you staying home by the fire?

When snow falls, nature listens ~Antoinette van Kleef I found this photo on my camera roll.. It's been very cold today but no "proper" snow. And our sledge is still in the cellar and waiting.. Keep yourself warm 🍁🌨️

Floral Fascination-In the doldrums of winter, it good to look back at pictures I might not of shared, due to the vast number of pictures of flowers I had at the time. This was taken at my friend Ann’s house, while visiting her beautiful home in Maine. This Streptocarpus, also known as a Cape primrose, was blooming magnificently on her window ledge. Do you have blooming flowers in your home to get through winter? Do you have pictures from earlier this year to share and get us over the hump of winter? I would love to see them. A special kudos to all of your in the Southern Hemisphere, sharing your gorgeous flowers here. Leaving you with a poem by Mary Oliver, who passed away yesterday. Her words will live forever. . . “Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” Mary Oliver #simplystyledflowers #floralfriday #myseasonalwindow

One of my favorite poems by Mary Oliver (1935-2019) : ⠀ When I am among the trees,⠀ Especially the willows and the honey locust,⠀ Equally the beech, the oaks and the pines,⠀ They give off such hints of gladness.⠀ I would almost say they save me, and daily.⠀ ⠀ I am so distant from the hope of myself,⠀ In which I have goodness, and discernment,⠀ and never hurry through the world⠀ But walk slowly, and bow often.⠀ ⠀ Around me the trees stir in their leaves⠀ And call out, “stay a while. “⠀ The light flows from their branches.⠀ ⠀ And they call again, “it’s simple, “they say,⠀ “And you too have come into the world to do this, to go easy, to be filled ⠀ with light, and to shine. “⠀ ⠀ #maryoliver #maryoliverpoetry #maryoliverpoem #poetryofinstagram

I’m so glad I made the effort to get outside yesterday because it is literally horrid out there today! I’m catching up with a friend for coffee and spit of @tkmaxx mooching this morning and this afternoon I’ll be scrolling the feed by the fire, soaking up all the cosy images. I’m sharing a few of my favourite accounts on my stories - feeds feeds that are giving me all the winter feels and inspiring me at the moment. They’re really worth checking out if you’re not already following them. Happy #FriYay y’all xx

Am I the only one who finds January exhausting? It’s such a busy time for us in school, while online I see goals and intentions being set and so many great courses and podcasts with advice for how to make my 2019 perfect. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good course and am super excited to be working with @simpleandseason next month, but right now I am literally overwhelmed 😳 So this morning I took Oscar for a walk round the coast and spied out bits of beauty and calm where I could. The sky looked huge today and the wind was whipping the waves against lichen covered rocks and I felt completely calm for the first time all week. Now if only I could find a way to keep hold of that feeling when I go back to school tonight for our open night! Anyone got any ideas?!!

Thinking back to this time last year when I lived by the sea in Cornwall (remind me why I moved back to the North West again?!). This was taken on a cold, bright walk along the coast path at Porthtowan. The sea was wild and grey-green- just a hint of the deep turquoise it would turn during the endless summer of 2018. I loved January in Cornwall; sharp air, clear skies, empty roads and wild, seaweed strewn beaches. My attic room was two streets back from the sea and in the wild months January- April I’d wake in the middle of the night with the waves roaring so loud I’d be momentarily convinced a tidal wave was imminent. . . #cornwall #porthtowan #myalmanacmoment #january #winter #newyear #mywintermoment #savourtheseasonalshift #seeing_the_ordinary #thiswintermoment #nature #mystoryoflight #smallmomentsofcalm #ofsimplethings

Sometimes I drag Mr Diary into the garden to admire the plants. I think it's important that he experiences the basic human thrill in seeing emerging shoots and bulbs. And being an amiable fellow, he heartily agrees that the snowdrop tips bursting through the soil, or the inky darkness of a hellebore flower, are things wonderful to behold. However, I was perhaps pushing it to get him to acknowledge the subtle beauty of this crispy brown hydrangea flower. It seems that dead flowers may be an acquired taste ... . . . #lovelydeadcrap #aseasonalyear #tostandandstare #slowsimpleseasonal #beautyinsimplicity #gardenlove #daysofsmallthings #aprettyishkindof_wilderness #wildgardenstyle #whimsicalwonderfulwild #thebotanicalseries #beautyofstillmoments #seeing_the_ordinary #eleganceintheeveryday #thequietwinter #inbeautyandchaos #aquietplace #allthingsbotanical #seekthesimplicity #awakethelight #fadingbeauty #hazyshadesofwinter #diariesofanoptimist #beautyintheeveryday

This time of year in the Midwest it’s hard to find splashes of color. I stopped in my tracks and knelt low at the feet of this beauty today. An astonishing peek of purple peering out from the underside.

~ I’m designing a calendar ~ * * It might seem odd but I’m working backwards and it is only because I saw this photo of Izzy, our beautiful Granddaughter and thought of JULY. * * I’m going to name the photo The Girl with Flowers in her Hair. ( I did think of a song with words about San Francisco but then there’s the ice cream!) * * Some of my months may not be personal and I might have a break and do a book review but I hope to get to January by the end of the month. Just doing 6 /7months! * * Please join in with your calendar design if you want to but give your photo a month and a title @#mymadeupcalendar * * #ourwhimsicaldays #dreaminginpictures #heitermoments #beautifulmatters #seeing_the_ordinary #momentsofmine

The moment when you reach for your phone and stand in your garden in your PJs, because the winter sunrise is something to behold. I hope your week has started as beautifully ✨🧡✨ . The lovely Kiki of @heitermagazine is asking what adds light and cheer to our winter days. For me, it has to be the little surprises nature gives us, to remind us that winter’s not all grey and gloom:... the first snowdrops, a sparkly frost-covered lawn... or a magical, golden sunrise. Winter is full of #heitermoments - what’s yours I wonder?

The wonder of winter can be right on your doorstep. And if we hunker down, wishing for Spring, we’ll miss the beauty of this amazing season. This view is just a brisk uphill walk from home - and if I hadn’t looked back, I’d have missed the grey cloud sinking into the valley behind these skeletal trees. I’d also have missed foraging for those crispy bits that make all the difference to my wintry floral creations. *And a huge thank you for all the love on yesterday’s post - it was fun to make, and even more fun to read your comments. . . . #antijanuaryblues #spreadnaturelove #myhappyviews #heiterwinter #mytaleofwinter #storiesoftheeveryday_winterlight #themidwintermovement #aquietstyle_balance #seasonalliving_winter #intentionalseasons #seisbest #cherishandrelish_january #seeing_the_ordinary #lovelydeadcrap #thisprettyengland

A little more blossom for you all. I have been very lax and not put some of my S America photos on Stories, so today I am adding a few from The Falklands. Port Stanley is nothing like a Port as I imagined it would be, it is pretty much a small bay with a little jetty that then takes you along the grass promenade. The many Cruise Ships that visit have to drop anchor some 2 miles out at sea and transfer the visitors by Tender, when we arrived the local Sealions were sunning themselves on the Jetty and luckily showed no interest in us as we disembarked 😎 Have a wonderful week folks 🌸🌸🌸

Landscape photography isn’t always my thing, but riding the train, watching the seaside and marshes fly by always makes me dream of luminous landscape paintings of the past. This is my favorite photo from my train ride yesterday, blurred grasses and all. #whpinspiredby @instagram

Walk and keep walking until you no longer know the road like the palm of your hand, because we walk the same roads day in and day out, to the bus and back home and we cease to see. We walk in our sleep and teach our muscles to work without thinking and I dare you to walk where you have not yet walked and I dare you to notice. Don’t try to get anything out of it, because you won’t. Don’t try to make use of it, because you can’t. And that’s the point. Just walk, see, sit down if you like. And be. Just be, whatever you are with whatever you have, and realise that- that is enough to be happy. There’s a whole world out there, right outside your window. You’d be a fool to miss it.

Yay, the early Almond Blossom is busy blooming here in Spain, such a delight to see especially as the sun is beaming today too, Yes January is cold but find yourself a little sheltered spot and for a few hours in the middle of the day it is heavenly ! We still have to light the log burner around 2ish each afternoon as our house is overshadowed by a coppice of Pine trees on the land adjacent to us. Our house is the ‘campo’ in the fields on the edge of the village, typically they are built just for summer living when it is too hot to live in the village/towns the family would use it at weekends and in the summer hols, therefore they are not built with any insulation, as they close them for the winter. With no major heating systems installed other than log burners our visits are frequent but short during the winter time! Wishing you all a lovely Sunday friends 🌸🌸🌸

My little corner of seasonal transition. Glimpses and perfumes of Spring yet my pile of wintry books reminds me to be patient for a while yet. I do enjoy the build up, the anticipation of the next stage in seasons. Don’t you?

Another dark day. I think I’d be in despair if I didn’t have flowers I can bring in. Just simple offerings, with some forced Hyacinth, Mimosa cut from the glasshouse and some potted Snowdrops.... - Not an exceptional Snowdrop in form but it is very suited to pot culture and is always in bloom at the beginning of January, ‘Bess’....so pleased to have some in pots too when the weather is dirge grey dull.... - Also just received A Christmas present to self. ‘The Galanthophiles’ (from Hubby)...anybody else have to buy their own? Well at least you get what you want, no returns 😂.... - I’ve already delved in and it’s packed with Snowdrop history and fabulous pics. Some by my friends Paddy Parmee @alpinegardeners and Melvyn Jope make it all the more special. Looking forward to some cosy reading this evening and hope you all enjoy a cosy evening this weekend..... - #snowdrops #galanthophiles #botanicaltales #myseasonalwindow #simplystyledflowers #seeing_the_ordinary #country_stilllife #bookish #january #allthingsbotanical #thewinterlog

Do you ever have one of those days when you can’t do what you want or planned? That’s me today and probably some of next week 👎🏼. The plan was to draft a blog post, take the photos, do some painting, and have a nice chilled day. Instead, I couldn’t avoid the supermarket any longer and had sit at my laptop until the majority of a report was done 👩🏻‍💻. I’m free as a bird now 😄.

Gifts of the Heart-Have you ever received a gift that touches your heart in such a way, that it’s difficult to express how much it means to you? My dear friend Ann, who has been with me since kindergarten, gave me such a gift. She took all my IG posts that I had created in 2017 and created a wonderful coffee table book. She lovingly retyped all my posts and formatted my pictures, and the results touched me in a way, that is hard to express! The time and patience to do this was a feat in itself that I could never do. 2017 was a very hard year for me as some of you know, where I lost many friends and family members. The real beauty of this book is it shows how I turned to creativity to work through my grief. I found it fascinating to read all those posts side by to see how far I’ve come. I had never gone back to read my posts. I encourage you to do that. This is a book that will be cherished and loved. It will be passed down through the generations. It is a symbol of what true friendship and love can do. For that I am so grateful Ann! Thank you so very much! Your friendship blesses me everyday!(More pics in my stories) . . @artann1234 ❤️❤️❤️. #giftsfromtheheart #treasuredfriends #grateful
