A parcel arrived from Audrey this week of Hello Paper. Her ‘Live Simply’ sticker had caught my eye  and I felt that an old bell jar cover I had, needed a lift. Honor and I have been paper-folding together. The glass cover protects our first attempt.

She also sent a tiny, twine tied bouquet of rosemary and lavender cut from her garden. Don’t you think that’s precious?

I never lose sight of life’s big picture but it’s always the little gestures, moments and details that I love to focus in on throughout my day.
