#OnePerfectThing in May

Pink vase

Perfection often feels out of reach. But however imperfect you’re finding life, you can make an effort to find #OnePerfectThing. Something which makes you pause, smile and feel thankful.

Earlier in the month I started my new hashtag #OnePerfectThing over on Instagram. It’s all about capturing a little moment of your day – a small piece of perfection. This might be a cup of tea in the sunshine or a new pair of shoes. It’s all about taking the time to step back and appreciate the little things.

I’m so thrilled that so many of you have joined in and I’ve loved seeing your photos.

Here are some of my favourites:

Middle row, left to right: @jennyseaves, @sallytangle, @tobyandroo

Bottom row: left to right: @helloitsgemma, @someone_s_mum, @trot_a_mouse

And my absolute favourite of the month is this photo taken by Fionnuala of Three Sons Later of some pretty eggs from her new hens.


The image summed up everything about #OnePerfectThing and this little present from my shop will be winging its way to Fionnuala soon.

    Oh, how lovely! Thank you Lizzie. That has made my day. I was in a horrible mood, having woken with a headache, but this has cheered me up. I’m sure I’ll be using the #OnePerfectThing hashtag again in June.
