sun shower…
Posted in amsterdam, nature, pia's photos September 25th, 2010 by pia

This morning I woke up to a beautiful sun shower. The rain looked like tiny, thin light beams falling from the sky.

Yesterday I had an idea. I have a collection of beautiful things gathering here in my little boat home – sweet treasures that have been given or sent to me, and lovely pieces I’ve been meaning to show you for some time. So instead of letting them gather & gather in the hope that I find time to share their stories with you, I thought that starting next week, I will take a photograph of each item every day and post them here in the (blog)house. I won’t write about the item, I’ll just post a photograph and maybe share a link or two directing you to where the item came from.

Would you enjoy that? I hope so.

And here is something I came across via vanessa during the week which I thought was rather fabulous, funny and oh so true. I’ve printed it out and taped it to my wall as a reminder, you might get a kick out of it too (find it here).

Enjoy your weekend, mes amis.

    Ha Ha! I love the ‘List’ and printed it out twice, one for me and one for my daughter.

    What a smashing idea I’d love to hear about all your lovely things…and your photographs are always TERRIFIC! Hope your weekend is just great.

    The “how to feel miserable as an artist” originally comes from Keri Smith, the wonderful illustrator & creativity writer. She offers a whole “artist’s survival kit” here:
    Maybe it’s of interest 🙂
    Thanks for sharing – and reminding!

    I don’t think there’s anything better in life than a sunshower. The way the light becomes all sparkly and foggy at the same time is just breathtaking. Can’t wait for your to start featuring your collection of beautiful things on the blog!
