A Mix of Beauty




Good Monday beauties! I hope the weekend was blissful for you. My weekend was lovely...a mix of things, which is how I enjoy it. I spent Sunday at Loch Lomond walking amongst the trees and beautiful nature. Although, not at my usual spot, it's tourist season, so it was far too crowded for me to relax and enjoy anything. But, here beautiful things have been swarming around my head like dancing fairies in the night sky lighting my way home. Far off places of yesterdays, long forgotten and wrapped in the intoxicating musky aroma of earth.  Like old houses full of treasures of memories loved and kept. History and richness of stories of old. Do you have those moments!?! Where you want something old, a book, a dress, a picture...something that many hands have glided over, eyes have gazed in wonderment, the deep sigh of breath exhaling in ecstasy at beauty fulfilled in their mind.  I adore those moments the most, ache for them really. I love old things...treasures...they sink into the deepness of my heart and mind and carry me through my days, keeping me warm and bright. Loved treasures found in unexpected places or faces.  Which is just what I found walking through the woods in Loch Lomond, a beautiful church with old graves sinking into the ground...my heart skipped a beat as I skipped happily towards it like a child. I'll share pictures another day, another time...but for now I shall leave you with these bits of beauty & bid you farewell, I hope your Monday is as beautiful as the sun in the sky!!

Love loves
xoxo

    Happy week to you dear Kizzy,

  4. I actually got goosebumps when I saw the top photo! So beautiful! And then I rolled down and marveled at the rest of the pictures...And yes, I do love those moments you speak about, and old cemeteries are the perfect places to find them in. I remember telling my mom I always felt so peaceful on cemeteries, when I was little and we visited my grandpa's grave. She didn't like hearing me say that. For her those places are just about death. She can't see or feel the beauty of it... xox

  7. Your words always paint such vivid images. You should write a book of poetry.

    Love the photo of the rose painted on the floor. So original!

  11. Kizzy,

    Thanks so much for your Monday morning post! I love the images and the words of wisdom. It's like receiving a "boost" to start the day with.

    I have a love affair going on with old, and weathered things and places. The well worn pages of old books being one of my favorite. I am also a lover of old letters, photos, sachets and furniture that has seen its better days.

    I hope you have a wonderful week! :)
