Today I felt the need to reflect on the everyday items that clutter our lives. I have chosen objects form my friend Sandi's house and garden.
It strikes me that if one just focuses on individual items they may seem quite ordinary. But somehow, almost miraculously, these same items owned by a particular person, when gathered collectively give a deep sense of the place and person.
My friend has a beautiful sense of design and her ‘natural clutter’ seems so artistic and inspiring to me.
What do you think of this idea?
Do these pictures give you a sense of the spirit of my friend?

How would you describe her?
