Happy 1st of July! Yesterday was so hot, with not a cloud in the sky and we spent the day indoors and out – taking photos of lovely new things that will hit the shop shelves any day now, and I assembled the above! For today’s first post (yes rumour has it there may be two?!) – I am sharing this months pictures for my IG collaboration A year of moments – with Natasha.
This month it’s all about the great outdoors, soaking up that sunshine and making your own joy. My flowers here were repurposed after we lent a hand at Emily Quinton’s beautiful Makelight weekend workshop, the jug was found at the last sunny car-boot sale we visited and I have been making use of my Observer book of British insects to find out the names of the sweet little butterflies I keep spotting in our meadow garden!
Natasha has been inspired to keep it simple and revel in the joyful beauty that is the flower of the season the peony! All those pink ruffles make me want to squeal, isn’t mother nature just amazing, and N’s picture is exquisite.
N and I would love for you to join in over on Instagram this month, tag us @lobsterandswan @candypop.uk and add #ayearofmoments_joyful and we can all share a joy filled month, at the end we will pick our favourites and share them here and on IG. Below are Junes amazing pictures – clockwise from top left here we have IG magic by @lewesmap @ridasj @rock.paper.love @aesmestudio @netherleighblog @lillalinaea @circleofpines @c_colli and @small_acorns.
