Very pretty - and the jute across the top is a lovely touch for the theme.

Those stripes with your lighthouse are brilliant! and the little flags work so well too. You have a great eye for detail.

What wonderful serendipity and synchronicity ... Hoping you have lots of good chats - there's quite a bit of the century to catch up on!

Wow, that triangle card is most eye-catching, with a bit of a retro feel. I reckon a fabric in this would sell really well!

I like your banner addition - balances the rest very nicely.

It's a lovely feeling when we finally do something we've been meaning to do! Creating breathing room sounds such a necessary thing for well-being. Yep, I have been decluttering hugely this summer and the greatest benefit has been feeling more 'together' and less spread out :).

This has a lovely, relaxed, doodle-y feel ... Makes me want to see if I could create something similar by hand. Fall (or 'autumn' as we call it here) is just making itself felt too.

Stunning - you have friends and family in the nicest of places! Hoping you have a lovely trip.
i like all of your ideas ... My only other thoughts was little house in the background with your square for the buiding, and your triangle for the roof. Or series of triangles along the bottom like the tops of a picket posts with him/her perched on one ... Or a spade/part of a lawnlower made up of some of the shapes? Whatever you decide, it is going to be lovely!

I too am wanting to focus on a reconnection and deepening/broadening/refocussing of my word for this year. This month - return to school - feels like the perfect time. In fact, I shall be quite delighted if it rains because then I'll feel I don't have to be doing anything else! Looking forward to seeing how it unfolds for you ...

What a striking fabric, Honoré ... and your plans for the day look like a week's worth! I am still a pen and paper fan too for thinking and reflecting.
Oooh, have you been painting, or having a go with Waterlogue? This would make a lovely card ... Just rrying to catch up and so sorry to have missed such a lot ...
These are lovely and I like your bright page ... I am impressed that your lovely daughter knows already that she wants to be a marine biologist!

Happy anniversary! I have been moving my digital things too, but in the opposite direction from desktop to laptop. I have culled ruthlessly!

As ours is nearly over, I have to tell you we have spent this one gloriously with our lovely son, daughter-in-law and family. The next, we have DH's annual family reunion, followed by a very good young friend the following one ... I might just rest and catch=up with myself on the final one :). Sewing and reading sounds so relaxing. Did you get the microwave?

Such a pretty card - I like the banner look ... Our lovely young ones have just left too. Isn't it quiet?
Who could NOT be cheered on seeing this! How glorious ... some wise part of you knew you'd need this fabric :).

A great reminder, and I just love this rough textured frame .. Hoping you are enjoying a great time and the trials of summer swimming are nearly over.

Those gardens are just lovely - and I really like that curving perspective. Sorry to hear that July has not been so good for you, and hoping for better things this month.

Aren't these all lovely? Sunshine in a card - what is better! I come from NI, but I've never come cross that word!
Isn't it a fantastic app? I love your petunias - so pretty. Would make a great fabric; you could print it onto cotton via your printer, Honoré, and quilt with it :). Sorry to have be AWOL. Trying to catch up.
I am so delighted to see they've been of use to you, Karen, and how beautifully you have embellished and adapted them! Framing them in matching colours is perfect. You have made my heart sing :).

Oh my goodness, that second card is so clever - I was staring at thinking "How did Karen do this?" It's just perfect. I am envying you your 'lady' boat. I'd love to travel in something like that.

Thank-you for those lovely wishes :). And I do like the colour of your fence/balustrade ... Will think of you when I get up early and sit outside in the morning, watching the sun through the trees, just like your photo.
