A glass dove.


A Victorian rocking horse.


A stack of books.

 I like going around the house taking photos of anything that catches my eye.

Do you do this too?


    • It’s an old heirloom from my husband’s side of the family 🙂

    • They are ornaments from the old house, where we had a “by the seaside theme”… Didn’t have the heart to chuck them out, even though we haven’t carried out that theme in the new house 🙂

  1. You certainly have an eye for these things. I’m pretty sure if I photographed my curtain pole it would look rubbish! I love your photos.

  2. I don’t really – my house is full of children and clutter and I struggle to find a calm, clear spot!! Lovely photos. Kaz x

    • Thanks. Oh my house is cluttered too. That’s why I only take close-up photos of objects 😉

  3. I love the glass dove. We have lots of little accessories dotted around the house, my husband thinks I’m mad. But I like having little quirky bits and bobs where you wouldn’t except them to be x

    • Same here. Have to make sure though that the kids won’t reach it 😉

    • Thanks. Dobbin, the rocking horse is a fave. Has been in my husband’s family for about four decades now… or is it 5? Keep forgetting. x

    • T still loves Dobbin. He’s a big one and has been in my husband’s family for ages!

    • We didn’t have the room in the old house, but Dobbin has been in the family for ages. I guess he goes where we go 😉

    It’s amazing how we can have such love for certain things in our home. The Victorian rocking horse you have looks beautiful.

    You have such lovely things, I love the nautical bits you have especially the lighthouse, they would look fab in my bathroom!
