When I was little, my Grandad had a greenhouse. I don't remember being allowed in it too often, mostly because it was his pride and joy - we were free to run riot anywhere in the garden except his vegetable patches and the greenhouse and because Grandad was Grandad, we listened. On the rare occasion he beckoned me in, he would show me his seedlings, his big, masculine thumb and pointer finger, covered in dirt, delicately holding these tiny little tomato plants (usually) or sometimes the beginnings of marrows or carrots before they got transferred outside to finish growing. 
He's long since passed, but I'll never forget looking up in that greenhouse, and seeing streaks of sunshine coming through the cloudy glass. I remember at one point he cursed (and Grandad never cursed), because one of the neighbours children had kicked a ball over and the glass pane had smashed on the roof, and all I can picture is the bright blue of the sky through the gap, which is incredibly unusual for England!

I was talking to my good friend Juni yesterday, wondering how decor bloggers do this, and wanted to challenge myself a little. I know I've done big posts in the past with lots of decor, but I feel like so far, this is the closest I've come to actually succeeding with something outside of -my- box. I thought "Surely it'll be easier for people to label their pictures with notes?" but on pondering that for a while, I just can't see how that'd work either, because no matter how I label it, there might be some confusion as to which product is which, so I settled on doing it via store-name. Hopefully that way it'll be quicker to sort through the piles of things I've used in this post!
I've also switched up the side-by-side inworld pics I usually do. I've almost always tried to use shadows in those images, but I've never been content with the way they look and have felt for a long time that they just miss the mark. I've done away with the shadows, and am now using CAIWL windlight, on ultra, nothing fancy, and I much prefer the finished product.
I hope your weekend was a pleasant one! xoxo
