Pockets full of Sunshine...

These are the wonderful things that make up Summer time for me...
Wondering along the River bank & across the stepping stones watching the swifts and swallows swoop, paddling in the Cornish blue sea & picnics on the beach, crabbing along the jetty near Kingsbridge, watching a family of rabbits in the farmer's meadow, watching the boats sail passed in Dartmouth, walking the coastal path at Slapton Sands, visiting a lovely farm shop for Strawberries and freshly made pasties... Laying on the sandy bank amongst the wild flowers cloud gazing...Listening to my daughter Laughing with her friends.
Finding a loose feather, a pebble with a hole in it and pieces of blue pottery in my pocket a few days later...

Lovely to get some pics of Sophia she usually hides when I try and take photos these days...
Bude Beach Babes!...

I've been creative in the evenings...experimenting with collage, using cut up old magazines and mixed media,
Also a new illustration of a Fairy using Mixed media... Do check out my Etsy shop (Etsy Shop link in sidebar)...


Finding The Lumineers albums and loving the sounds of new music...Its just so wonderful to find music that reaches into your soul!..
My top Summer sounds at the Moment...If you're into old, rustic Summers sounds of the soul, I'm a folk, Indie pop with a lot of chill out Classical thrown in (My music taste is a real mix bag)...The land of the day dreamer...These two albums are on repeat this Summer...
* First Aid Kit , The Lions Roar Album
*The Lumineers, Cleopatra Album.
But a lot of the time I have my old radio on playing Classic FM....

A beautiful Film was watched one lovely cosy evening, Based on the true story of Maud Lewis (One of the  Folk Artists in America) , 'Maudie', Such a beautiful , heart lifting and a real teary tale of a lady with many obstacles and hardship including a disability, But her strength, love, creativity and beautiful way she paints her simple little world outside her window shines through~ Its one of the Best films i've seen in a long time~ A true heart warming tale... Also another film the actress Sally Hawkins was in was the film 'Shape of Water' another fantastic film!

* Updated*...A storm is heading our way in Devon, Those beautiful blue skies seem a distant memory today!

  5. Sophia looks so like you and what a pretty girl she is! Lovely snaps of the seaside I haven't been to Slapton but hope to next year when I visit my brother at Paignton. Hope the storm doesn't cause any damage, it's very blustery here too in sunny Surrey.
