Joy List in July #1

An impromptu few hours at the beach

 Watching the sunlight on the water and ripples in the sand

Listening to and watching grasshoppers in the dry grasses

 Enjoying a chilled glass of wine on a dry and dusty day

Making positive affirmation stones

If you would like to take part in the savor summer project  then please click on the savor summer picture link in the side bar or see my previous post about Anne's project here.

On Monday's we will be doing Joy in July posts and on Friday's a post about either (creative) play, books, recipes or homemade spa items.  It would be great if you would like to join in and play along.

Hopefully we can all inspire each other to make the most of Summer 2015 and savor the longer and warmer days storing up lots of lovely memories for later in the year.

On Friday I have a creative play post coming up for you using seashells.  If you are lucky enough to get to a beach this year, then don't forget to pick up a few seashells and pebbles for future projects.

See you on Friday!


  1. Think I will make a few of those

  2. Awe those stones are ever so pretty Simone!
    We have lost our summer weather at the moment, temporarily I hope, I'm still determined to have fun though!
    Have a good week,

  3. Lovely joys, Simone! I am glad you are savoring! :)

    Looking forward to seeing your seashell project. Your affirmation stones are great!

    Have a joy-filled week!

  4. Lovely stones, Simone! And I am looking forward to the seashells post :) Happy new week.

  5. Love your painted pebbles Simone, this seems like a good idea. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with the seashells, I have a bowl full of them collected over the years:)

  6. What lovely stones, Simone! Did you paint them before lettering? And your penmanship is beautiful!!
    Glad you got to the beach - we haven't made it yet this summer!! xx

  7. Hi Judy! I am afraid that isn't my beautiful penmanship - it is in fact rub on transfers! The beach was a fleeting visit of less than a couple of hours whilst visiting a University. x

  8. We always collect some pebbles and seashells whenever we get the chance.

  9. Love this post. The sunlight on water links me back to such fond memories of living along Lake Michigan in Illinois and summer vacations at Ice Lake, Michigan.
    I'm happy to see I'm not the only one who loves stones. I used to carry one in my pocket as a worry stone. I think I'll start doing this again and when my fingers close over it I'll think of my friend in England and be soothed.

  10. I love going to the seaside, I love the stones they look so pretty xx
