a quick note

Just a quick note to say. I will be away this week but back on Friday for Soulfood Friday.

This week is extra busy friends. We're helping Emmy move into her new apartment and it will be Nola and Boo's first day at school while Matilda and Seraphina will be returning to school.
Lots of emotions, mostly good, some sad. 
I haven't had a big cry yet but I'm sure I will once the waters settle a little.


See you on Friday :) xx

Summer Holiday Pics and Giveaway Winners Announced


A few pictures from our trip to the sea a couple of weeks ago.
Tucked away in the old part of the town is the most amazing gift shop brimming with antiques and local arts and crafts. It's a little like finding a treasure trove and we always stop off to browse before heading home with bags of fish 'n' chips under our arms.

I'm delighted to announce that the winner of the Mindfulness Colouring book is: 
Momto5 at "A Family's Journey"

And the winner of the tea, soap and box of quotations is:
Denise from "just me being me."

Please contact me at sailingbystarlight@gmail.com with your contact details and I'll have them wrapped, posted and one their way :)

Thank you so much to everyone who took part. I'm looking forward to hosting another giveaway in the Autumn.

Soulfood Friday

Make a stillness around you, a field of peace.
Your best work, the best time of your life will be grown out of this peace."
Peter Heller, "The painter"

Stormy skies and glowing sunsets over the farm buildings down the lane.

The flight of swallows that I will miss.

Messages in bottles from "Gifts from the Sea"

A friendly pile of favourite reads to keep me company.

This raggle taggle girl.

"Leave the city of your comfort and step out into the wilderness of your intuition." 
Alan Alder

Every Friday I'll be pausing to notice something from the week that has nourished my soul.
A special, sacred-everyday moment captured on camera, or perhaps a snippet from a book, a recipe still warm from the kitchen or something whimsical that simply made me smile. 
Here are a few simple things that have fed my soul this week.

What has inspired/fed/nourished your soul this week friends?
