Hi.

Welcome! I’m Suzanne, the author and photographer of this blog. I hope what you find here informs and inspires you, and brings beauty and calm to your day.

This and that

This and that

Hello readers. If you haven't already discovered it yourself, I added a new page to my blog titled "Inspiration." It's a list of links to lead you to blogs I love. Who knows! Maybe you'll find inspiration there, too.

Here are five things that caught my attention lately:

1. these hazelnuts

because they taste so fresh and good and a thoughtful friend recently gifted me two packages (from Italy.) I'm already on the second bag.

2. these crab apples

because another thoughtful friend invited me to pick them from her glorious backyard tree.

3. this crabapple jelly

because I love food gifts (see items 1 and 2) and I will never get around to making my own. What about that colour!

4. this palo santo wood

because this old house can smell musty sometimes and nothing refreshes it better, faster.

5. these marigolds

because removing blooms keeps plants producing more and more. Plus the orange and yellows leave me spellbound.
