hey there - let’s talk about 💩 for a sec. did you know that 2.3 BILLION people around the world don’t have access to a toilet? that’s roughly 40% of the worlds population. ALSO did you know that 27,000 trees are cut down daily to make toilet paper (and that doesn’t even include paper towels 😱)? crazy, right? recently, i came across this brilliant company @whogivesacraptp - i have absolutely fallen in love with them because all of their TP is made with recycled materials sans artificial dyes & their paper towels are made with a blend of sugar cane and bamboo NOT TO MENTION that whenever you buy any of their products, half of their profits directly fund the distribution of toilets to communities in need around the world. are you in love yet?? 😍 also, as an added bonus they are probably the most aesthetically pleasing toilet paper rolls i’ve ever seen. check them out if you’re looking for another small way to give back as well as give our planet a little love. ps this is not a sponsored post - i just love this company & everyone should know about them. #thereisnoplanetb #loveyourmother

“I’ve had enough of modern cities and suburban high schools. What I want is Verona and Camelot. I’m seeking passage to Prydain, Sherwood Forest, Neverland, the Shire. In the words of William Morris, I’m irked with ‘the dullness of our town, and the littleness of men’s doings therein.’ I long to be touched by the light and breathe the air of a land outside the boundaries of my own pale and paltry experience.” —Jim Ware, Finding God in the Land of Narnia.⁣⁣⁣

I bought a door for my studio - and it fits!! This was a happy happy find, seeings as the door frame is both short and wide, not a off-the-shelf fit you might say.
I clocked this door at the beginning of the holidays outside a reclamation centre and having measured and remeasured found it was a tiny bit too long. Nothing a little sawing alteration wouldn’t fix.
I left home determined that I wouldn’t buy it unless it was perfect… ahem…. upon arriving and giving it a look up and down, a little prod and gentle lifting of paint, I then happen to lean it forward and HUZZAH!! It has pink glass.
I bought it 🙈😍!! The vendor was a complete diamond, giving us a proper good natured rant about The House Being On Fire... and links to the songs he’s written for the #extinctionrebellion and #slowfashion. He was happy his door was going to house slippers. Me too ♥️. We’ll defo be going back xx

these last few days felt a bit like fall, but my camera roll is telling me that summer is still here.

Neulich hab ich in meiner Story gefragt, ob du deinen Körper magst. Im Schnitt kam heraus, dass über 50 % sich nicht so sehr zu mögen zu scheinen. Vor ein paar Monaten hätte ich mich in einer ähnlichen Richtung angesiedelt, hätte dieses Foto gepostet und dann mit mir gekämpft, ob ich es löschen soll oder nicht. Seither bin ich immer wieder in die dunkle Ecke gerannt, die hässliche, die mir angst macht und ich bin wieder herausgekommen. Mit einem Lächeln. Und jetzt weniger dramatisch. Ich hab einen verdammten Glaubenssatz in die Knie gezwungen. Yey!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Die Schwierigkeit mit den Glaubenssätzen ist, dass man sie zunächst aufspüren muss. Meditieren hilft. Wichtiger ist aber, auch außerhalb der Matte immer wieder innezuhalten, sich selbst zuzuhören, dem Geschwätz aber bloß keinen Glauben zu schenken. ⁠⠀
Es ist okay, meine nackten Beine zu zeigen, rede mir bloß nichts anderes ein, du dummer Kopf. ⁠⠀
Es ist ja noch nicht einmal viel. Tatsächlich poste ich heute dieses Foto und bin völlig okay damit. Nein, noch besser. Ich mag es. Ich finde es hübsch. Das Foto transportiert das Bild, das ich inzwischen von mir selbst habe. Ich bin eine sinnliche schöne Frau. Das sagt mein Mann schon immer. Jetzt glaube ich es ihm endlich. Es fühlt sich nicht einmal komisch an, dass von mir zu sagen. Was ich von mir denke, ist meine Realität. Weißt du, was für eine erleichternde Erkenntnis das ist? Du kannst und du darfst von dir denken, was du möchtst und du bist die einzige Person, deren Ansicht für dich zählen sollte. So, wie mein Mann mir nicht vermitteln konnte, wie schön er mich findet, weil mein Kopf nicht mitgemacht hat, kann mir jetzt auch umgekehrt niemand einreden, dass ich es nicht bin. Weil ich bestimme, was ich denke und fühle. ⁠⠀

Electroformed Necklace with Telescopium Shell & Amethyst 🔮 | Hmm, just to let you know, this necklace is available and one-of-a-kind 😁 .
💜 Amethyst is a stone of spiritual protection and purification, cleansing one's energy field of negative influences and attachments, and creating a resonant shield of spiritual Light around the body. It acts as a barrier against lower energies, psychic attack, geopathic stress and unhealthy environments. Amethyst protects against psychic attack, paranormal harm or ill-wishing, and returns the energy back to the universe after being transformed into positive, loving energy. To increase this power and attract good luck, draw an image of the sun and the crescent moon over an Amethyst in lavender incense smoke. 💜 source: crystalvaults.com

This month’s newsletter took a while for me to write. When it was in my schedule to write it, I just... couldn’t. I had no energy and was mentally and physically drained. So, when I did come to write it a couple of days later, I decided to write about energy cycles and rhythms - why we need to respect them and how we can work with them, not against them ✨ I’ve also made a PDF with some questions to ask yourself when you’re feeling low in energy to understand why and what might help. The newsletter will be going out on Sunday, link to subscribe is in my bio ❤️ how is your energy at the moment? I’m running low and am in need of lots of rest this weekend 😴 [photo by @ellelorean.co]

Thank you all for following my new brand. If I haven't introduced myself to you yet, Hi! I am Jessica Collin.
I graduated with a BA in Jewellery & Silversmithing from Loughborough University in the early noughties, I've made, sold, exhibited, collaborated, taught and so much more over the last fifteen years. But Cast & Found is the first time I've felt truly authentic. I so hope you enjoy following this brand from its very beginning. All the detail, the thought... the soul you will find in Cast & Found is created by me.
Iam so pleased you stopped by x

I uploaded my last vintage drop on Etsy last night (follow the link in my bio to shop) but that’s it for the next week or so - the British beach is beckoning and I can’t wait to dip my toes in the sea.

“Lips half-willing in a doorway.
Lips half-singing at a window.
Eyes half-dreaming in the walls.
Feet half-dancing in a kitchen.
Even the clocks half-yawn the hours
And the farmers make half-answers.”
(Carl Sandburg, ‘Village in Late Summer’)
•
August morning, humid and warm, full of the sound of crows and jays cawing and crickets buzzing faintly, and a very slight breeze ruffling the treetops...

Happy Friday!

This big hour glass is about an hour and the small one is one minute and 16s ( I measured 🤪). The same friend gave me one for Christmas and then for my birthday. .
.
.
I love them and used to just look at them on the mantle, but I listened to some one on line who said that she use an hourglass when she has to do jobs she doesn't like. .
.
.
So this weekend I will try it, there is filing and month end paperwork waiting for me from last month! Let's see if this will help with getting it done!

Just a little reminder to myself, and maybe it's useful to you too: take a break, even a little one, maybe with some coffee and a couple of pages to read. Sometimes I really need to remember this during the day.

Una foto per ricordarmi di prendermi una pausa, magari è utile anche a voi: fermarsi un attimo, respirare, magari un caffè e leggere un paio di pagine.
Ogni tanto ricordarmi di fermarmi durante la giornata è difficile.

Sky above. Earth below. Peace within. 💙
A few tips for being more mindful while on holiday.
1. Establish what your 'vacation mode' is.
2. Unplug. Switch off your phone, stop checking messages, emails, social media, your 'to do list'.
3. Keep things simple.
4. Make time for meditation or mindfulness.
5. Follow your natural rhythm for sleep and eating. Go with the flow and what feels natural for you...
5. Treat yourself but importantly, acknowledge each treat. 😊 -------------------------------------------------‐---------------- #travel #travelphotography #portugal #restanddigest #rest #restore #blueskies #wellness #wellbeing #sunshine #selfcare #mindfulness #mindful #healthandwellness #nature #gratitude #freshair #martinhal #vitaminsea #health #mindbodywellness #holisticnutrition #slowandglow #slowliving #photooftheday #holistic#holisticlife #slowdown #mindful #organicbeauty #beach #travelphotography

Happy Friday!! A little bouquet for you . It’s over on my @etsyuk Shop.. perfect for these balmy summer days! I’ve been abit quiet on here recently. It’s the summer holidays, and although I should be posting ... I just wanted to put my phone down & enjoy life & the lovely weather that England is giving us at the moment! So I’m still here... working away, but trying to be less on social media. I’ve limited myself to 1 hour a day! Surprising how fast it goes. Going into the weekend.. it’s my birthday, another older.. and another year closer to my bus pass which I’m excited by! Not quite there.. but closer to that than a student railcard! x

Balliol looking like something right out of a fairytale. I really want to go back to Oxford in the autumn to see all the Virginia creeper turn auburn. It really is the most beautiful thing in the world. 🍂 this bout of autumnal weather has got me looking forward to autumn- wearing my favourite jackets again, hot drinks and London looking pretty under all of the twinkly lights...

We’re away this weekend and I couldn’t be more excited to squish into my big comfy hotel bed tonight 🙌🏻 what are your weekend plans?

We’re away this weekend and I couldn’t be more excited to squish into my big comfy hotel bed tonight 🙌🏻 what are your weekend plans?

Elsker stadig at spise morgenmad i vindueskarmen, og se byen vågne. Når jeg har fri, har jeg weekend og skal indhente en hel uges kys. Måske det ikke er helt værst at være weekendkærester?☕️🍑🍌💋 fredagsbisous og happy wknd herfra.

Farmer and cheese maker Cressida of @pecoradairy on what and who inspires her feed and work...⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Three words to describe your feed?⁣⁣⁣
⁣
Genuine, engaging, inspiring⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Three people who have influenced you?⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
@flore_vallery_radot - Flo came to our farm several years ago to photograph it. I was fascinated by the way she saw it and her ability to tell our story in pictures. She has since created several films for us, including one on our raw milk cheese Yarrawa, which encapsulates so much of who we are and what we do in just a short sequence. I have been inspired to take my own photography more seriously and weave stories of the small moments which happen during my farming day, to create a wider narrative of our journey in raw, ewe's milk cheese making.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
James Rebanks (@herdyshepherd1) - I think sheep are quite misunderstood animals and I love the way James Rebanks has raised their profile and brought them more to peoples attention. Historically, sheep have made a significant contribution to civilisations in the form of meat, wool and milk, however, they are generally regarded as being lower in value than other livestock.  I really admire the way James Rebanks now uses his considerable voice to promote discussion of issues around agriculture and the environment which affect farmers world wide. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
@jamesvilesbiota - James' restaurant Biota is not far from our farm. His cooking reflects what is available seasonally and locally and he continually pushes the boundaries to explore the use of ingredients in different ways. Today, more than ever it is important to understand where your food comes from and how it was produced. James works closely with his producers and has a deep understanding of food systems and his part to play in educating consumers.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
What are you reading/listening to/watching at the moment?⁣
⁣
@for.the.wild podcast. I find these interviews so thought provoking and reminds me to look up from my own patch. Some of the issues are challenging, but to hear these experts speak so eloquently on their subject emboldens to think positively about the future.⁣⁣⁣

Friday I’m in love.... This week (and every week) we’re in love with @pecoradairy . ⁣
⁣
I reckon @pecoradairy is as good as example as any of how social media can help farmers connect and build communities around what they do. Not only because Cressida (one half of this excellent team) writes so well and takes such lovely photos, but also because she shows up so consistently, every post taking us behind the farm gate with a seasonal story that only the farmer could tell.⁣
⁣
Based in the Southern-highlands, Pecora Dairy produces award-winning* raw ewes milk cheese. And we get to follow along every step of the way. Talk about someone ‘finding her voice’ - Cressida’s stories take us into the paddock as she watches Maremma pup Cerberus watching over the lambs, the farm as they walk the ewes in for milking and the kitchen as she plates up their cheeses so very beautifully.⁣
⁣
As per my ‘Friday I’m in Love’ series; I asked Cressida a few questions about what inspires her and her work, and she wrote back with such lovely answers I couldn’t cut a word, so have posted them in a separate (the next) post...please go and have a read! ⁣

It’s been teetering between rain and sunshine all day, without the humidity factor, and I’m feeling so refreshed by it 💦☀️

'Scorpio motto: I desire.'♏🦂

The sign for Scopio is a scorpion (duh). FUN FACT: I have been trying to get @datwhitedude to go scorpion hunting with me with a black light. He has yet to agree. Ugh, boys🙄😂 The Scorpion is a symbol of power of intuition, resilience and vengeance. This sounds a little volatile but honestly, Scorpios are just SO FULL OF PASSION and I think that is amazing. .
.
.
Are you a Scorpio? Tell me about your fave qualities of being one😍♏🦂 This necklace features the scorpion on a ninety bead hand knotted blue cord beaded necklace with rutilated quartz beads to represent the stars within the Scorpio's constellation. He is paired with a blue flash lab that is just super duper yummy and reflects his element perfectly 😍😍 .
.
.
The Scorpio will be available on Sunday at 2PM PST with all of the other of his zodiac brethren. I have seriously loved making this series so far. I can't wait for you to see the rest!

this weeks (almost) plastic-free haul complete with probably the best nut-based cheese i’ve ever had 🤤 i’ve been really focusing on using meat as a condiment instead of the main event to the food i’ve been enjoying lately - especially with the fires in the Amazon, it’s hard to ignore the negative impact i have on the environment. that being said, for those of us that are winding down from meat & possibly dairy as well, be gentle with yourself. start with meatless Mondays or only consume one meal a day that contains meat. when you do buy meat, do your best to get it from a local, organic farm (trust me, it tastes better anyway) that way you become way more acquainted with the SOURCE of where your meat comes from. something i’ve been focusing on for the past couple years is becoming closer to nature & to our divine resource, Mother Earth. with the stress humanity has put on the planet, it’s made me want to be THAT much more connected. away from technology. away from constant consumerism. just connected. and having my fruit & veggies handed to me from the dirt-caked farmers hands, does that for me. 🌱✨ #farmersmarketla

Well, i will be embroidering flowers to all of our sweaters. But can you blame me!? Come on. 🌻

When people ask me what I am the most proud of, I tell them it is the relationship I have with my partner. I didn’t grow up with a very healthy understanding of love. I’ve had to learn a lot of difficult lessons, and in many ways am still learning, about what truly healthy, happy, interdependent love looks like. ⁣
⁣
So many of us don’t have good examples of love growing up. We have to do the work of figuring it out later in our lives. This usually isn’t easy because it also often means disentangling fear, anxiety and attachment issues from our earliest relationships. ⁣
⁣
This is why I’m so proud of the relationship I have now and the work I have done to get there. As a kid love was conditional and unpredictable. I was definitely very loved, and am so grateful for this, but didn’t really learn how to love in healthy ways. It’s taken so much unlearning and relearning to figure out how to actually wholly love someone else and show up in a relationship. Our relationship is not perfect (although it’s about as close as I can imagine), and I am definitely not perfect in it, but it’s beautiful and I’m so proud of how we show up in it. ⁣
⁣
I say all this not to shout from the rooftops about how lucky I am (although that is true too) but because I used to think I was “too messed up” and that I “could never love someone well” because I didn’t know how. Like everything, building a healthy relationship takes work and discomfort and vulnerability and showing up every single day, but it’s possible. It is possible to learn how to love better. ⁣
⁣
And then maybe one day you’ll be standing in the middle of the beautiful chaos that is your life and you’ll look at whoever is standing there holding your hand, and you’ll feel proud. And you’ll realize that the love was in you all along, you just needed to learn how to use it. ⁣
⁣
So if you feel any of what I felt about love, if you want to give up on love because it’s hurt you so badly before, if old trauma means love is too scary to consider, know that like anything with care and patience and effort this too can heal. And you can love. I hope you do, because the world needs your love in it. ⁣

Did I ever mention how much I adore this community? Yesterday, the response to my talking stories was overwhelmingly amazing!! It reaffirmed the importance of community and having a support system - support of people who believe in you and are on the journey together with you matters a lot. Some time ago I had a chance to connect with a lovely human that I came across on this very platform and we talked about how lonely it can be. One reason would be that we don't have any role models in our real lives or the other very obvious reason is that there is no blueprint, no 'right' way of doing things. It is a lot about trusting yourself and the journey and trusting that you've what it takes, trusting that you'll figure it out as you go and that can sometimes be scary and lonely.
I have celebrated the two year anniversary of my blog this August. While reflecting my journey so far one thing that sticks out for me is having some kind of support system. I have craved that support while I was struggling to figure out how everything works these past two years. I still don't 'feel' like I have figured it all out. But I honestly don't think anyone has. We are all learning what opportunities the internet holds for us and our creative work and what that means for the way we want to spend our lives. I crave some support now at times when I need reminding of what my work is capable of and what good is it already doing int he world. Support to cheer me on, help me challenge my existing patterns, disrupt and dismantle the way I'm seeing the world and grow along the way.
I have invested a fair share of money online on e-courses, workshops and other things online that I felt like I needed. I have invested in a coach that helps me listen to my voice and reduce the outside noise. Where I'm still finding a gap is having a close knit community that is willing to learn and grow along with me. I don't claim to be an expert coach 'coach' and I don't assume to know what's better for you but I can help create opportunities for your growth along with me. I can hold space for your ideas to come to life in a collaborative manner...Continued in the comments below 👇

Whilst I call here ‘home’, I also call our home in UK ‘home’. I sometimes feel I’m losing my identity somewhere in the middle. My anxiety surfaces when I encounter the moment of self doubt. In my voice and attitude, my habit of self criticism as well as critical view towards other people and issues that bother me. like, am I too opinionated? Who do I dare think I am?
The main aim of this long travel, which is almost coming to the end soon, was to reclaim the time to reconnect within myself as well as with my daughter and family in Japan. I think we’ve achieved this to a great deal, yet it’s never enough and that’s the nature of those who living abroad. I question myself, more often than not, how much the balanced life is when the two cultures are so different. Anyway, here is #mymidweekmumble as usual. So tell me, what you’ve been up to?
By the way I have just uploaded quite bulks of stories if you would like to have ‘a rather long’ peek. (hence I saved under highlight if you prefer catching up later) The image is my daughter rolling, not clay, but ‘soba’ mix at Takumino-sato, Minakami-cho, Gunma. What a great experience we had! The result? Find out in the 🇯🇵3!

• Skummende grøn matcha •⁣
⁣
Den pæneste kop te længe. Skøn, grøn 🍵⁣
Pascal var fan. Isaac er ikke tosset med det. Smag og behag. ⁣
⁣
Det er ikke svært at lave en kop selv, men i går aftes betalte jeg mig fra det. ⁣
⁣
Torsdagen er i gang på kontoret. Jeg sidder og skriver. Har vist enda skrevet mig en hovedpine til, og kunne faktisk godt bruge en lur lige nu. ⁣
⁣
Snart er det fyraften, og så skal drengene hentes. Så gik også denne dag 😅⁣
⁣
Vil du selv prøve kræfter med matcha, er det såresimpelt:⁣
⁣
• 1 tsk matchapulver af god kvalitet ⁣
• 1,5-2 dl lidt koldere end kogene (ca 80 gr)⁣
• Piskes til det skummer på toppen. ⁣
⁣
Hæld evt lidt lun mælk i, eller et bløp honning. ⁣

More this: sunsets in the forest, cosy afternoons under blankets on the sofa, nourishing home cooked meals, meaningful conversations over comforting hot drinks, long walks along the beach, slow deep breaths of fresh air, time lost in good books. 🙌🏻 Less this: time spent worrying about the unchangeable, dwelling in the past, screen time, fast food, late nights, people who don’t understand, wasted time. 💫

If you’re keeping your side-hustle a secret, or at least, not being overly open about it, I totally get why. It’s scary because we worry about what others will think. We don’t want to hear the negative feedback that might fuel our own fears and we certainly don’t want people to think we’re being selfish or getting too big for our boots by pursuing a creative dream. ⠀
~⠀
If you’re struggling to talk about your side-hustle with friends, family and colleagues, you’re definitely not alone. It’s a conversation that comes up repeatedly in my mentoring calls. But, by opening up about your side-hustle you can totally unlock its potential for growth. This is something I discovered back when I started opening up about my own side-hustle.⠀

In this week’s video I’m talking about how you can start to open up about your side-hustle and unlock it’s potential for growth. It’s on the blog (link in bio) and I’m working on uploading it to IGTV (damn this slow countryside internet). How do you feel about talking about your side hustle or business with your friends, family or colleagues?

We took this photograph a few weeks ago. The first family shot in ages. I think I’d like to make a habit of this—it was so much fun. We changed clothes once, and ended up underwater! So happy to have a crew who will join me...

Ironic, isn't it, that my favorite spot in the whole house is in my little dining room. With the broken blinds, outdated light, and not a thing on the walls except for a family portrait drawn by my sweet five year old. But here the sun streams in, warming me through, and inviting me never to leave. And when I'm here I never want to!
@chrislovesjulia is giving away a room makeover and I would love to see them transform this space to look amazing as I feel when I am here. #cljtreatment
Like this photo to help me get into the runnings, thank you friends!

A little pile from a while ago 🙈 As you can tell I haven’t been posting much on this account because my knitting is looking a little different lately. I’ve been working on getting our new home built, making things for my babies and just spending more time with them in general. I have no plans for the shop at the moment and I hope you all aren’t too terribly upset with me but if you’re really dying for something dm me and we can chat ☺️ also you can follow along @springhillhomestead for all things Freas home related!

Let’s celebrate each other 🧡
Share a small win you had today. Then, comment on another's response to let them know their win is great, too!
My win - I had an initial assessment with a new CBT service today. It’s complimentary to all the other things I’m doing for my mental health at the moment, it was just a little thing, but it still feels like a big deal.

On our morning walk around the green today I found myself sticking to the path as the noise of all the tired, yellowing leaves on the grass kept waking our curious son up. Our first Summer with Ned, our first Summer in our first home, is nearly over. The acer in our back garden is starting to go burgundy + I am busy writing the to do’s that hope to make our renovation space a little cosier for those shorter days. #nedrobertcarter

Okay so hear me out... We go to this small thrift store where they have a FREE box. (ALL THRIFT STORES SHOULD DO THIS) Where anything that has been in the store for a while they place there. I have the best luck when it comes to this box. I recently found a XL woman’s 90s gap dress. I immediately fell in love with the soft gingham pattern. I repurposed it for a dress for me and a top for my little lemon. Thank goodness she took a great nap today. I got some sewing done. My heart is happy.

I'm halfway through my first week back at my day job after summer vacation. Since 2016, I've been blogging and writing my first novel on my free time. Many evenings, weekends and vacations.
Not always easy, not really ideal. But all the same it works and I've gotten quite good at it. At finding the balance, going at my own pace, slow but steady.
I know this is the reality for many of you too, and every time I ask what's hardest about creating, one of the top answers is finding time. So that's why I decided to write my first, free workbook about this - balacing creative dreams with the rest of your life.
It's soon done and will be released some time the next two weeks. If you want it, join the Teacup Owls through the link my bio. They'll get it straight to their inbox.
What do you find hardest about creating alongside the demands of the rest of your life?

Sometimes we write our thoughts onto the thoughts of our children like you would write over an old cassette. We presume that our worries and fears run just as wild through their little minds as ours.
.
Before I continue, let me take you away with me. It was serene, cloudy morning as walked down the into the low valley of a path. The path was lined with sprouts of golden rod, jewel weed, and the occasional crab apple tree. James grabbed a crab apple as I carried him and happily took pea size bites. My back was heavy laden with all we needed for our outing. Snacks, my camera, a cherished antique basket.
.
I placed my little boy down to let him roam. We were headed to a path out in the middle of cow pasture that shot straight up to heaven it seemed, it was so steep. I had been dreaming of taking pictures there for days. About halfway there, the mist started. I thought my chance of photos was lost.
.
The sky became a heavy empty white, the way the sky looks when it is about to snow. But being late August, it was only a strong mist. The mist fell evenly over everything in sight and bathed the world gently, almost kindly it seemed. But I couldn’t see it that way.
.
My eyes strained with concern and indecision, and my attention shifted away from the beauty before me. I had done a great deal of work to prepare for this excursion, and we were far from the car.
.
After a few minutes of taking shelter in the woods, I decided we would keep going. James tugged at the hem of my dress. I scooped him up and held him tightly against my pelvis, as if in a harness, with both hands, and kept walking. I assumed the mist worried him, and coddled him as though he were afraid.
.
But then we reached a small field of golden rod, a few feet off the path. Something told me to stop. Using my sandles, I crushed the weeds in a narrow track and made a way for us to get in. Once inside I placed James down. That’s when I noticed how deeply I had been mistaken. He was not worried, he was enthralled.

Late summer, as the garden starts to fade. Feels like there's a change in the air ✨🍂💙

After another minute Reuben brought forth the following sentence:
'I ha' scranleted two hundred furrows come five o'clock down i' the bute.'
It was a difficult remark, Flora felt, to which to reply.

A little humor for the midweek. I know it’s still August but I found the first of the autumn leaves, and I’m so excited for my favorite season to arrive. Are you an Autumn soul too? .

Forever dreaming of moody wildflower fields and long summer days! Luckily I’m off to Kent on Friday for a whole week so hoping I’ll have both in abundance 💫
Thank you so much everyone for your messages and comments on my latest post, they were much needed. I really missed the community here x

“If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have time (or the tools) to write” — Stephen King⁣
⁣
Do you agree? ⁣
⁣
Lately, I’ve been sparking my creative flow by reading a lot. Fiction, non-fiction, poetry. I always find that the more I read, the more I feel inspired to write. ⁣
⁣
It’s why as a teacher, I try to expose my students to as many different types of texts as possible to help coax out their own writing voices. ⁣
⁣
Other writers and teachers I know believe the key to writing prolifically is to spend less time consuming words and more time creating them. ⁣
