Simple offerings from me this week.

When my life is complex,
as it is right now,
I cherish the peacefulness and quietness of my garden:

mementos that remind me of joyful times:

(This necklace of freshwater pearls and turquoise beads was made especially for me by a lovely and incredibly hard working jeweller in Hoi An, Vietnam)

...and I love the way that working with my hands gives me space for simplicity and solitude after a day full of noise and demands:

(The pattern's called Dot's Little Ditty Bag. I made it out of cotton and adorned it with a five petalled rose from Crochet Bouquet.)

What's bringing peace into your world?
