Creating An Elegant Life

Easy steps to finding and creating an elegant life.....

Always laugh....or smile.

Listen to your's never wrong.

Remember, you are the most beautiful person on the planet.....

Always make time for tea, is the answer to all that ails you.

Feel the wind....

Watch a storm....with a cup of tea of course!

If it hurts, remove it.

Travel - get in your car and drive.
Never fear where that road will lead.

Just dance, and if you can't - make it up.

Build yourself a beautiful castle.
Whether it is tiny or ginormous,
....surround yourself with your beautiful treasures.

Embrace those you love....

Always remember those that have kept your little corner of the world safe.

Surround yourself with fresh flowers....and cupcakes!

You can never watch enough romantic movies....

Always keep a journal and a blog.

  1. Lovely, lovely pictures, as always. I love the sitting room with the table in the bay window, gorgeous. And you can't help but smile at the little girl's face sitting next to the penguin. When I drive up nearby Whipsnade Hill I can see the penguins in the zoo I mentioned, I will think of her each time I pass now.
