A Little Moment

That little table I scored for $40 in a 'chuck-out sale' as it has a tiny crack in one of the legs... bargain hey. I love it. It's very 'Raffles' I reckon.

I was sitting on my deck on the weekend, in the late afternoon, and I noticed how the sun was playing on my pretty little side table in the lounge inside. Just as well I had my trusty iPhone camera right next to me!

Capturing this moment reminded me how important it is to be mindful, to live in the moment. 

If you don't, you miss so much. 



Happy Wednesday!

  5. A lovely table A-M and a lovely message as well.
    I find that often I am so wrapped up in 'plans' that I forget to observe what is happening in the here and now....

  20. I love your table, it looks like a style we call East Lake. I have a few pieces from my family, German heritage from about 70 to 80 years ago. Classic. I love the saying, "Must be Present to win".
    Get it? Present.... I know you do. That is why I love to stop by. You get it. Love ya, Heidi
