My Creative Space: a newbie

No time again this week for any actual making of new things however I am being creative in other ways.... I bought this quote as a fridge magnet for Chef many years ago and thought others may also like the sentiment.


To me, a garden doesn't have to be beautiful green space of your own. It can be a park or by the river or even just outside on your driveway or your little square peice of concrete out the back. It is, to me, more about being outside under the clouds and the sky. And a library doesn't have to be your own book collection, it can be the public library, it can be any book that makes you wonder about other places and other lives.
I like how this quote, from over 2000 years ago reminds us what we really need.  I love that our basic wants and needs haven't changed very much in over 2000 years.
What do you think you need to have everything you really need?
( ironically the cushion is for sale here, if for example, you "need" nice things..ahem)

  1. Coffee has to be on the list. SO I can sit in my garden and read a book with a good cuppa. That would keep me happy.

  2. I love this quote! A garden and a library are right up there (along with family of course, and coffee and chocolate to enjoy with the books and plants!)

  8. Forgot to say... new photo looks fabulously gorgeous :) I'm thinking of changing mine too - have found an appropriately hazy looking shot to suit general vagueness here :)) Kx

  9. Love it - I have something similar on Pinterest. I too would need coffee to go with my gardening and books, and family and friends to share those 3 with.

  11. Caffeine and yarn. Afraid that's all this crazy bird needs at the moment (even though I secretly agree with Mr Cicero)...
