Birds Eye View.

A few weeks ago, we ventured up the Shard for a birthday celebration, amazing to see London lying down at our feet! It was rather late in the evening so the light wasn't brilliant but now I know how and what the birds see everyday.

Last week I won a giveaway, yah!!!! It was an understatement to say that I was really thrilled.
Lou at LittleGreenshed was hosting a Roddy and Ginger giveaway, and I got the lucky ticket, love Virginia's work she has so many fantastic designs and there are lots of wonderful things to be see and brought in her Etsy shop too!

Nature in the Home, week 20!

I have missed the last few of the Nature in the Home series, just too much going on so I was determined to join in the final one, the topic this week is "round." Our garden now is pretty scorched but the succulents are doing well and this one is kind of round in structure if nothing else!

A graphic design friend and I collaberated on a quick sticker for our children's primary school!
They have an incentive going on to encouage children even little things you do can make a difference!
Inspired by this story......

 Once a man was walking along a beach. The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day. Off in the distance he could see a person going back and forth between the surf's edge and the beach. Back and forth this person went. As the man approached he could see that there were hundreds of starfish stranded on the sand as the result of the natural action of the tide.
The man was stuck by the apparent futility of the task. There were far too many starfish. Many of them were sure to perish. As he approached the person continued the task of picking up starfish one by one and throwing them into the surf.
As he came up to the person he said, "You must be crazy. There are thousands of miles of beach covered with starfish. You can't possibly make a difference." The person looked at the man. He then stooped down and pick up one more starfish and threw it back into the ocean. He turned back to the man and said, "It sure made a difference to that one!"
