Hidden in Plain Sight

hidden 5Small people have a very special ability to see and hear the things that as grown ups we very often miss. The beauty of being very close to a child is quite often they let you share a little of this magic. When they do you have two choices. You either get irritated and say ‘yes, yes, I can hear the birds, very good’ and then go about your day. Or……. you can stop, listen and hear the birds!

And……. When you do it is truly amazing. You get to experience something wonderful and that is hidden in plain sight. This weekend we trusted Lizzie with the camera in order to capture some of this child like magic.

We’d like to share some of her shots with you and some pictures of her going about her weekend. Joy that is hidden in plain sight you know, ordinary miracles that might just make you, like us, take a step back and really really enjoy life. This post also forms part of our year with less – it helps us to remember the simple things all around us so cleverly hidden in plain sight.

We really appreciate all that we have and in the busy buzz of life and setting up Becksie and Lotty (new products on our shop double eeeeek – blantant plug ;)) we are glad we have taken time out to see the world through our lovely little child’s eyes.

  1. Aw! Reading this post and looking at these photos as I listened to the dawn chorus, occasionally glancing out of the window to see the pinky hues of sunrise in the sky, was a perfectly positive start to my week. Thank you for sharing! I hope you all have a lovely week ahead of you. x

  2. Little Lizzie is truly amazing, as are both of you. Love seeing your views of the world & your adventures. Brilliant photos πŸ™‚ x

  3. One of the things hidden in plain sight is the ethos of Team Pugh! The Listening photos of
    Lizzie – total concentration for her and total magic for us. Thank you for sharing.

  4. How beautiful!! Its lovely to be reminded that its not gold and diamonds that are the treasures in this life xx

  5. Sher’s such a little gorgeous one. Lovely post. You value all of exactly the right things, you lot! xx

  6. Aww lovely pics, I agree life gets alot better if and when you come to the realization that a pursuit and obsession with making cash and owning “things” is utterly pointless. It those wonderful moments when you stop and feel really happy with the little things that make life living. Today I spent part of the afternoon in a lovely sunny garden with my 3 yr old, we were planting out some new plants and sowing seeds in seed trays and she was running around watering everything with her little cute watering can. At one point I stood blinking in the sunlight and looked across at her, with her little watering can and gorgeous ginger curls in a cute plait, surrounded by a halo of light and it just made me smile πŸ™‚
