365 Grateful – Day 321: I tend to get a little bit sentimental around Christmas time. Lots of little treasures that jolt memories get brought out of storage to be displayed as they do for a short time each year. This gorgeous christmas train decoration was a gift from a dear friend. I absolutely love it. It has a vintage look about it. I love things that look old and interesting.
365 Grateful – Day 322: Still on Christmas decorations, I had to include these two. The Christmas tree was made by my mother-in-law when she was much younger and always had busy crafting hands. The snowman was a secret santa gift from a work colleague. Each decoration around my house has a story and a memory attached to it. I’m grateful that I am sentimental and that objects can stir memories and feelings within me.
365 Grateful – Day 323: Grateful to see my “Geisha Girl” flowering again. She hasn’t been well, but with some TLC she is now rewarding me.
365 Grateful – Day 324: I do a lot of thinking while I’m washing up. I’ve also made it a daily routine to practice being mindful when I wash up. I make an effort to feel the water on my hands, feel the bubbles and froth, feel the cloth as I wipe and clean the dishes, notice the sounds the water makes etc. Yesterday while I washing up and practicing being mindful, I realised how beautiful the bubbles and froth in the water are and decided that I really must photograph it for a grateful photo, because I am grateful for anything that I find beautiful or uplifting!
365 Grateful – Day 325: So, so grateful to have flowers in my garden that I can cut and bring inside. These begonias were getting a little unwieldy outside and needed a pruning. What a joy to bring the off-cuts inside to enjoy! 🙂
Christmas is getting close and I haven’t completed my Christmas shopping yet, so I’m off Christmas shopping tomorrow morning. Hoping to get my new car tomorrow too *fingers crossed*. More on that to come but for background refer to this post.
Ciao for now,
