About mybeautfulthings

Finding the beautiful in the everyday - I write about three things each day which please me in some way - people, food, art, nature, words, music and anything that makes me smile and which I hope will make you smile too.

Today and Every Day

Rainbow, Reflection and Cookies

Drawing the curtains back this morning I was greeted by a beautiful bright rainbow.

The reflections on the Penryn River as we sang this morning were very lovely.

Last time we went on The People’s Vote March, I was touched by a young woman’s generosity when she passed out home-made Brownies to the crowd around her. Today  I have baked 50 Oat and Cherry Cookies to hand out to fellow protesters. I packed them up before taking a photo so here are the three saved for us!

Birthday Bouquet and Two Views

It’s still possible to pick enough flowers for a friend’s birthday.

The view as we walked through the gardens of the Meudon hotel is fabulous.

At the bottom of the gardens is Bream Cove with a view across to Falmouth.

Basket, Pancakes and Clematis

There are still lots of lovely colourful baskets of flowers in Truro.

I made Lemon and Raisin Pancakes for a treat this afternoon.

We brought in a couple of Clematis flowers today.

Bag, Stickers and Angels

My bag for the People’s Vote March next Saturday arrived today along with a couple of stickers, in  Cornish.

I have now completed eight stained glass angels for the Christmas market. Here are a couple, all  reclaimed  glass, some. of. it. Victorian, and re-cycled bits  of  jewellery.

Blues, Lilac and Skeletons

A glorious afternoon so off we went to walk by the sea. Join us – it was bracing!

Blues

I spotted something purple on the very edge of the cliff so zoomed in (the cliffs are unstable here so I didn’t get close) and found a flower which looks like Sea Thrift but is the wrong colour and the wrong season. I’m hoping someone can help me identify them – HeyJude maybe?

Not Thrift?

The seed heads were delicately beautiful skeletons.

And Sallie’s Ice-cream van was there!

 

 

Reflections and Our Concert

Just one picture for today, mast reflections taken last Saturday at Mylor.

Home late after a brilliant concert that was greatly appreciated by our packed audience in St Euny Church where the acoustics are wonderful. There may be photos later.
