A Year Of Moments

A Year of Moments with Candy Pop and Lobster & Swan ~ August

1st August 2015

Simplicity by Candy Pop

Welcome to August and A Year of Moments, a monthly collaboration with the lovely Jeska of Lobster & Swan.

August is a time to relax, unwind and recharge, and so this month Jeska and I would like to slow things down with a little simplicity and space. If you’d like to join in please upload your photograph to Instagram including the hashtag: ayearofmoments_simplicity, along with mine and Jeska’s user names. We will share a few favourites on our blogs and Instagram at the end of the month. I’m excited to see your minimalist images and hope you’ll enjoy celebrating the simple things in life with us.

For my August image I’ve included a couple of recent birthday gifts: a wooden bowl from Tinsmiths, Ledbury, and a little pot from Illyria Pottery, Oxford. I teamed them up with a teasel from my parent’s garden, a shell from Cornwall and two tiny pansies from our communal garden – don’t tell anyone! Just a few tiny things that make me smile.

Jeska’s pretty image is made up of a gathering of three of her favourite things: her treasured white lace blouse, some fennel from her garden and her favourite July photograph. Simple and beautiful.

Thank you to everyone who took part during July by sharing their joyful images. I’d like to make a special mention to the gorgeous Xanthe Berkeley who shared her joyful moments almost every day. Here are a few of our favourites.
