soundtrack to winter days

I rarely buy anything non essential these days but I needed a treat. I really really needed a treat, so, tired of forever wrestling with ear buds that fall out of my ears whenever I move, I bought some proper white headphones. And yes, the colour was a  bigger factor in my choice than sound quality. I can't afford quality. If I have to buy cheap then it must at least make me happy to look at them. And to be honest, they sound fine to me, definitely not amazing, but perfectly good for blocking out the sound of vans sitting outside with their engines running.

But in the mornings there is a sound better than my music, the birds out in the garden. They seem to have been especially chirpy of late, which I tend to expect more in Spring than in Winter so it feels like a lovely bonus track to the season. I haven't taken any good photo's of the wee critters, they are too busy avoiding cats pose for pics, so instead these are my Christmas deco birds to represent my flighty feathered friends.

January Whites

I decided to revive my old tradition of posting some white things in January. My love of all things white is as strong as ever and is always heightened in winter time. When the garden begins to grow in Spring so does my love of colour. Lets hope I don't wait until Spring to post again.

1-2-3. Two lovely lamps 'Loop' and 'Change' by Timo Niskanen, both beautiful in their simplicity. I particularly like the idea behind the 'Change' coin deposit lamp which is designed to for use in public spaces to encourage people to switch off when they are finished, saving their money and the cost of unnecessary energy wastage.

4-5. Stylish Japanese style in these storage jars by Sfera.

6. Stunning saw-pierced skulls named 'Lace Longhorns' by Love Warriors.
