I WIsh For You..............

September already!!!
I can't believe Summer is officially over.

However, September is always a month
of new beginnings for me (I think it
harks backs to school days; I loved
getting all my new books, uniform etc for school)

September makes me want to 
set new challenges, new mini-goals,
new mantras, new habits.............
new everything.

So this September my lovely ladies
I  wish for you:

*the joy of new discoveries

*the joy of "YES!!! I get it"

*the joy of seeing previously new ideas
coming to fruition

*the joy of reason

*the joy of mastery; whether that be of  your
own muscles (did I tell you I am starting a new running
programme. Sounds impressive, but when I tell you
I have the running abilities of a centipede, and have
a husband who runs about 12k
everyday, you will get why
this is a challenge for me), 

I'm sure I would run much better if I had these

* the joy of mastering a new hobby, a new job, 
a new recipe, a new language.


*the joy of  new journeys

*the joy of meeting someone new

*the joy of doing something for the first time

*the joy of finally realising there is no rush

*the joy of saying "no".

*the joy of life never growing stale

and of course the joy of sparkles

    1. Thank you so much Coco. I usually just pick images that feel good rather than any other profound reason ;-)

  2. Sorry dear, I spelled your name wrong because in Italy it would be Vanessa. Is it ok if I call you Van? :-)

    1. Ha! Yes of course Sweets. In fact it was spelt with 1 'n' but after a mind-blowing session with a numerologist who suggested I change it to 2 'n's' which I have now legally done.

  3. Nice to hear your positivity, I hate September with a passion and can't believe the school holidays have flown past so quickly x

  4. Ha! I guess it must be so different if you have children and the whole new school term, timetables, morning rush etc all begins. I do "get" why you hate it Sharon. All my friends with children are exactly the same ;-)

  5. great post! good luck on your running challenge :)


  6. Wonderfully said, and Yay for sparkles. I wish to also experience all of these joys. the month of September doesn't have that much of a significance here, as our schools/universities begin in January. Also its meant to be spring but its only 6 degrees!! All the best with the running, are you also taking it up? Happy September Doll!!

    1. TY lovely Sam. Yes where you are you moving into Spring-that is something to get really excited about in itself. I just love the seasons of transition such as Autumn and Spring. Have a lovely week Sam xx

  7. I love the change of seasons too!! Though mine is from Winter to Spring. :-) How I'm LOVING it! I'd forgotten what it's like to be so deliciously warm. :-) I'm excited to spend a lot of time outside this Spring. I've set up two outdoor work stations so I can do painting and sewing and writing and anything else I like. :-) It's going to be lovely. :-)

    1. Me too Krista. The seasons of transition are definitely my favorite. I can just feel your excitement of Spring arriving in Oz; it's palpable ;-) xx

  8. Thank you, Vanessa and JOY to you too...such a lovely post...I always look forward to September and creations, ideas and thoughts...the fun of summer nearly over and the beginning of something new...exciting months ahead :-)
    Have a great week.

  9. Hi Vanessa, September is a great month. I love the little chill in the morning air, the leaves start to turn colors, and i usually feel very productive heading into fall. I wish you all these wonderful things in your post. This post inspires me. Xoxo Dee

  10. Me too Dee. I seem to get a renewed vigor in September and I'm enjoying it so much more in the UK where Autumn is very defined (unlike in Spain ;-) Thank you for stopping by Sweets xx

  11. Another beautiful round up of images.. and .. sentiment! I too love September and fall, for all it's new beginnings...but here in Southern California with temperatures nearing 100... I haven't been able to really switch over. So my dear your post is read with much thanks... for it's inspirations for this new season to come!


  12. Beautiful pictures. Everything looks so beautiful. I love that sequin blazer.

  13. I agree on much of your thoughts here. I also see September as a fresh start and like starting a new semester. More than new years actually. xo Caroline

  14. Good morning Vanessa! I adore this month for so many reasons, but back to school is one of them, the cool air, the anticipation of all things dormant. And that photo with the pink shabby chic table....WOOOO!

    Thank you so much for coming to leave a message on my post. You are KIND! Enjoy your day, Anita

  15. This jewellery is beautiful and unique. I'm sure there would be a lot of jewellery buyers in Toronto looking for something like this! By the way I'm in love with the blog! Keep it going please.
