Grateful.

This weekend I'm grateful for little bits of magic in everyday life.

I've been hanging out with these two cool cats and my goodness they see magic everywhere.

A couple in a cafe staring at each other adoringly with very shiny rings, a little girl in the prettiest yellow dress sitting in the window of her house, a lady wearing a bridal veil and a tutu walking down the street followed by her hens, a ring of daisies waiting for the fairies to come and dance, dragon flies, a bird song that sounds like 'twoodleoo', water melon that tastes like lollies,

a Macedonian couple filling bottles full of mineral water to magically cure their Mother's aches and pains, a grandmother teaching her grand daughter how to do the monkey bars, ripples and rainbows in the water, a bunny in the clouds,

being able to jump so high you can almost touch the sky, two little mixy matchy dresses that appear out of nowhere at the end of watching a movie about a dog, a Mama who is so happy and patient because she got a chance to sew two little dresses from some vintage sheets and some scraps of lace, a tea party made from sand and water...

More grateful over at Maxabella land.

Don't forget those who might not have as much to be grateful for right now and bid on my auction or some of the others at Toni's.

Hope you find a bit of magic in your weekend.

  7. aw, kinda nice and sweet and all things good. My two are having their first night in the same room - sounds like ruckus and expect will take hours - i love listening to them chatter though. Funny how they do that even when only one of them can talk!

  9. Your girls are so lucky having each other, and lucky to have a mama who makes them the cutest mixy matchy dresses! I adore the way little ones remind us grown-ups of everyday magic. And I reckon that when we stop and join them in their wonder, it's like being given a gift of inspiration from their little souls. So precious.

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
