lets talk about beauty

Lately I have been thinking about beauty, I want my definition to stretch out so that more things become beautiful to me or so that I notice the beautiful things around me. or something. Even though I can't articulate it very well, I think its working. When I found this little thing stuck in my hair my first thought was 'how beautiful! A tiny tree attached to my head!'.

maybe you should check your hair right now for some tiny objects that may or may not be beautiful. go ahead!

Luke took a picture of our pillows stacked up like so. which I also think is beautiful and I am not sure I would have before.

Auckland Public Art Gallery is being renovated right now, and since I live on the same street I notice the going ons. Someone this week has written this on the sidewalk in GIANT chalk letters:

"no matter how many artworks I see, nothing is as beautiful as a tree"

Which for the record I do not agree with, but I like the challenge it presents.

On another note, Thanks very much to Sally from Quite a Handful for these quality quilting fabrics that I was lucky enough to win from her giveaway.

The generosity of bloggers always impresses me. so thankyouthankyouthankyou.

regarding the comments from my last post: aawwww shucks! you guys are too kind :)

happy start of the week. It's going to be a good one, I can just tell.

Lovely posting Kimberlee, sometimes we need to stop and slow life down a bit to see such beauty that is around us all the time. The simple things that sometimes we don't notice. Great fabric score by the way! xx

Such a timely post! I've been thinking about Dostoevsky's quote "beauty will save the world all evening."

And I really am planning on blogging your giveaway goodness. I have photos and everything...

I like finding odd things in my hair too- it just can't be helped with long hair! Did you see World Sweet World? The article is super Kimberlee! Thank you so much for letting us be a part of it. I've already read my copy cover to cover- stayed up late last night to finish it (bad ass) - and your article is my definate favourite! Cheers to you.
