Delight in small dimensions

Beauty is all around us - but so often the crush of the horrible and the mundane drive it away from our ken.

Take a look at a small gift from a couple with a big heart for us:

Saro Mathai made this sunflower at a miniature scale.  Using paper-quilling.

She and her wonderful husband Martin presented us with this tiny flicker of joy - the result of careful craftsmanship and attention to detail.

And it wasn't the first one we have received.  The tea cups on the banner-head of this blog are from Saro. 

On getting this latest miniature treasure, we had to bring out one of the cups from before - and a key to give perspective....

How much colour and form can bring us joy - even through tiny bursts of light and love!

  1. How true your thought that we don't see the beauty all around us, the small things which we tend to overlook . . .
    I also like your new family picture, you all look great, especially Enoch !
