Some evenings after work we’ll drive to our local beach with Alby (our doggie). Here I’m enjoying a gorgeous book I borrowed from the library. Style & Simplicity, a guide to living a more beautiful life by Ted Kennedy Watson.
Such an inspiring book filled with pretty pictures. Sweet ideas on how to get enjoyment out of the small things.
My favourites are:
- Decorating your home with flowers all the time and even filling vases with beautiful vegetables like asparagus or basil leaves.
Bitters. I’ve never tried it before but sounds interesting. A distilled essence of a certain food like celery or grapefruit. You add it to your sparkling water or cocktail. I’m going to try it!
Lighting candles as soon as you get home in the evening. He says, “it can almost be a spiritual experience.”
Edison Bulbs. I’ve always loved the look of these.
The beauty of handwritten notes.
– Outdoor shower. I would so love this one day. With hot water of course. Can you imagine how luxurious that would be?
