early summer

party

party

i was invited to a lovely birthday party a while ago. it was an early summerish afternoon, and we gathered in the communal garden, amidst the trees, shrubs and lavendar bushes. there was sparkling wine with home-made rhubarb cordial, a delicious herbed, lemony quinoa salad with feta cheese and an ever-so-pretty, scrumptious cake with tiny dried roses on top, which suzy had made. thank you for having us over, sylee!

recently, i have had an exhausting work schedule (and still have), but i try to make time, a half-hour here, a half-hour there, for little projects. i made elderflower jelly. i mounted some prints. and, as a treat, spent an afternoon in the garden and brought home large branches of wild roses, cut along the way. and you know, sometimes small projects can lead to bigger things. try it.

have you read about kinfolk magazine? oh. cannot wait.

This looks like the perfect way to spend a sunny day. I love the colours! I also like your idea of making sure you spend a little time each day with projects.

It looks relaxing and 'summery'. And that last picture is precious -necklace, bandaid and cake = perfect combination :-)

So fun to see these out in the world! & such a honor to have your beautiful photos recording that special day. We must manage to meet just as soon as your days are a little quieter (even if just for a half-hour)...

A beautiful way to spend the afternoon ... I too am trying to focus on small things ... simple pleasure among the chaos. Thanks for the Kinfolk link too.
