Faraway Treehouse, Cumbria. Lie in bed, or even in the bath, watching trees sway and dragonflies flit on the pond, or head down for wild swimming in the river.

Home is such an integral part of our private lives and yet many of us have spent little time thinking about the feeling of home in much detail. What is it that makes a house feel like a home? Or what it is that makes us feel at home even in places we have never been to before? ⠀
I have wanted to research this idea of what makes us feel at home in space but before I start looking into what other people have said about this topic I wanted to note down a few of my own ideas on what contributes to creating those feelings of ease, familiarity, comfort and belonging that make us feel at home.⠀
We have a new blog post up in the JOURNAL section of our website where I share some of my thoughts (you can read these via the link in bio) but I would also love to hear from you. What makes you feel at home in a space? Are there any spaces or places including but also beyond your own home that you feel particularly at home in? What are the factors that contribute to making you feel this way?⠀

Sometimes the smallest things brings the most happiness to your day 🍐🍐🍐 just like these pear earrings! Couldn’t resist to take a picture of them before shipping away. Lately been super busy with everything, so taking my camera out feels really good. Hope to share some fun snaps more often ♥️ #etsy#etsysuccess#dailymini

На прошлой неделе слетала в Нидерланды 😌.
Было бы классно 😂 но это всего лишь декорации тематического парка в Шеньчжене. Фотография сделана пару месяцев назад, когда мы ещё не задыхались от жары. Но сейчас время этого снимка пришло 🤓.
Признаться честно, соскучилась уже по климату и природе европейской части России. Сейчас бы в Калининград или Питер...Но нет, не время ✌🏻.
Редко в ленте появляются мои снимки, надеюсь, скоро эта ситуация изменится 😄.

#coffeecirclethoughts Focus on living in the moment and not worrying about everything all at once. Live in the moment and enjoy the little things if today ♡ ☕
“plunge yourself in the Godhead’s deepest sea; be lost in His immensity; and you shall come forth as from a couch of rest refreshed and invigorated. I know nothing which can so comfort the soul, so calm the swelling billows of sorrow and grief; so speak peace to the winds of trial, as devout musing upon the subject of the Godhead.” C.H. Spurgeon #kindredinchrist
My sweet friend @calaandivy opened an Etsy shop and makes these beautiful custom rainbows. This is the Hudson and every time I look at it, I am reminded of our sweet budding friendship and her beautiful bright light. I love sharing mamahood with her and to have a piece of hers in my room that I share with my babe, Hudson, is very special 🧡
My heart beats a little harder today! The happiness of doing the things that I love. To be creative and be surrounded by people that believe in my Dream. 🦋

These Foxgloves, Dahlias and Veronicas (?) all got squished in last night’s rain, so they’re seeing out their final days indoors. Little bit disappointing as there are still buds on them but never mind, there’s still a few that made it.
I’ve had a LOT of questions about what I planted in the troughs. I will respond, it’s just I need to work it out first from the labels 🏷! Thinking I might revive my blog with a gardening post? Would anyone want to read that? Xx
Sometimes, I feel like I’m living.
Other times I feel like I’m not alive at all.
Sometimes I grab handfuls of grass just to feel the dirt.
Other times I feel so loosely connected to the earth, I fear a strong gust of wind could blow me away.
Then suddenly, a particular song settles into somewhere deep within my bones,
Or I stop in front of a painting, searching.
Or I watch as a film unfolds a strange but familiar emotion that I don’t yet have the words to explain.
And I think,
“Oh, there I am. Right there. I’m here after all.”

Off the grid / Out of Office! Please forgive my tardiness and delay in responding to emails or message for the next few days! We will be celebrating a family wedding in California- and quite literally be off the grid and without service. Hope everyone has an amazing weekend- we are so looking forward to ditching our phones to be with family. ❤️❤️ #alwaysgo#mytinyatlas#offthegrid#momentslikethis#seekthesimplicity
The ocean has lost her baby teeth.
They’re shells upon the shore.
And every day she grows new teeth.
Each night she looses more.
She spreads her teeth upon the beach.
I gather up a pile.
I bring them home so i can keep
a piece of ocean smile.
Oh man, it was a stressful day 😫 And I’m still at work and will be here till midnight. So here is a throwback from my favorite place #TheVivaDarlingsInPuglia
Did you guys plan your summer vacation yet? 🏝
Views like this are fueling the Mountains Calling collection! Sometimes I can barely contain myself from stopping every few yards to sketch and taking hundreds of photos - but then I remember that the core of my inspiration is "getting amongst it" as @briannamadia says.
So with each step further on a trail I absorb the thrumming energy around me, pausing to point out a marmot up ahead or trying to identify a blooming flower instead of taking a photo. Pondering everything and nothing as the miles pass.
I can't stop my artists eyes from seeing lines and shapes everywhere, like a double vision, but I pair this with remembering the surprisingly sweet smell of a blooming bush after huffing up a hill or the lapping water below beckoning with a cool breeze. These muscle memories are what will infuse a painting later.
Then, because I'm only human, I take a few photos. Even pause to sketch and snack, but then remind myself of the ratio of photos to experiences and push forward.

One of the best tasting Cortado I’ve had. Also I appreciate the palette cleanser.
