Life, the Universe and Everything, Driftwood Art and William Morris

1  Met my good friend E at the Gylly Beach Cafe in Falmouth this morning. We talked about life, the universe and everything and had a walk along the beach in bright sunshine. Gorgeous osteospermums in flower from the beach up to the road.

2  This piece of driftwood art, called ‘Houses and a Bicycle’ by Jo Perry is a delight to me every day. We bought it many years ago and it has never failed to please us both. I love the little seagulls on the roof tops and chimneys and the tiny bicycle leaning against the railings.

3  I love these words from William Morris: “If you want a golden rule that will fit everything, this is it: Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.” That’s why we have the above piece of art!
