#aquietstyle June Favourite


July is now upon us, with talk of school holidays and days by the beach, I think I am looking forward to it as much as the kids.

June was a particularly pretty month, and I could have chosen so many images as my favourite, but in the end, I decided on this beautiful image by @cygnetkitchen, so still and peaceful, it sums up #aquietstyle perfectly.  Thank you for sharing Louise, and congratulations on winning a digital subscription to the inspiring Selvedge magazine, that they have kindly provided.  Please drop me an email with your details so I can pass it on.
