Spectacular Snowy Owls.

I mean what do i really need to say? They are works of Art aren’t they. Masterpieces of both design and form, dynamics and power.

Plus they can do that friggin awesome thing with their necks able to turn right round.

Well almost.

Also I so salute these incredible photographers too. Each one of these photos are totes amazeballs and taken with such precision and timing. It’s truly a case of you had to be there.

Actually there, then, waiting, with camera out ready, I would imagine?

What animals that are bith cute and wonderful if slightly scary too. Or is it just me?

I wonder which ones are twits? And which twoos?

Geometric loveliness.

Mmmmmmmm and Grrrrrrrrrrr, I LOVE these. It is so refreshing to see something new and original.

Not much room for mistakes in geometry though, so these have to some cracking Artists.

KNOBS!

I love a great knob ; )

Although it is a hell of a budget before these things are even considered more than just a means of opening a door. But in an imaginary world, where money is no object and that it would not be best spent on almost anything other, more important than frivolity like this.

So from a purely aesthetic point of view. I do so love this level of attention to quality and detail. To arrive at a door that the mere sight of it brings you joy and an occasion each time it’s used, is a wonderful thing. The craftsmanship alone of some of these is just fabulous.

What i do find a shame though is that I have often found that the people who have this level of luxury in their lives, rarely seem to enjoy or even notice the craftsmanship or qualities that I admire them so much for.

Like our walls perhaps free of a myriad of Old Master paintings and antiques ….. if we didn’t have them, did we miss them?

To them I also say Knobs, Lol. Look around, and really see the beauty of it all and how lucky you are. Although its not really their fault either as it’s what they are used to, the same as any of us.

It’s what we grow used to really, isn’t it? Our reality and experience is always ours alone. But does the commonplace always become taken for granted or even ignored no matter how exceptional or beautiful?

Do we take the time to enjoy what we have now?

Shouldn’t we all try and take the time to notice and enjoy all the little details around us too and remember how lucky we are ? Whether a passing bloom, the touch of a loved ones skin, a wonderful door, some angelic birdsong or just a smile that was freely and genuinely given that day.

No matter how lucky we feel we are, still take pleasure, relish and even celebrate all that you are lucky enough to be and have around you. No matter how small, rejoice in it all.

On a lighter note though, the look of the knob is perhaps equally as important to me as how it feels in your hand, don’t you think?

Ahem, I’ll stop there….

This is so elegant
Fab design and a dog, what’s not to love.
A very welcoming door.
Bee love
Love the subtlety of this one.
Spooky
Gorgeously elaborate.
