How's your month been folks? I feel like these monthly posts are really highlighting to me how quickly time whizzes past! I'm getting later and later with them each month! I hope you've had a good few weeks - I've been so enjoying seeing your pics on the gallery on Instagram - there is currently over 5.5K images under #amonthoflovely! Thank you for sharing and tagging your lovely moments. So, here are mine from the month of June....

New camera love - I recently decided that it was time to invest in a new camera. I've been using a Nikon DSLR for years and I had started to feel it just wasn't giving me the kinds of images I wanted to create, plus the technology was pretty old compared to what is on the market now. So I've taken the plunge and bought the Olympus Pen ELP-8. I also got the 17mm lens from eBay which is definitely a game changer. I will write a post about why I'm loving this camera so much soon, but for now, you can see some of the images I've taken on it on my Instagram feed

Handwritten cards - I LOVE a handwritten card. As much as you can say the same thing in an email, it is so much nicer when it comes inside a pretty card. It was our 4th wedding anniversary in June, so hubby gave me the 'you shine like a star' card, and I received the other floral card from Libby at &Hobbs. You may have seen we featured &Hobbs in our Talking Shop feature in the current issue of 91 Magazine? I've met Libby a few times now when I've visited the shop in Shere, and she is SO lovely - and on my last visit she gave me this lovely card to say thanks for the feature. Such a lovely gesture. 

New writing work - I'm so excited to share the news that I am now a magazine columnist! A while back I was asked by the editor of a soon-to-launch magazine if I would like to write their 'Living' column, and I of course was totally honoured to take up the position! The first issue launched a few weeks back, so you can now pick up In The Moment magazine in the shops. The focus is mindfulness and well being in all areas of your life - health, creativity, living and travel. It feels like a very down-to-earth, relatable magazine, so do check it out - I'd love to hear what you think! 

Spaces by Frankie Magazine - I was in London last month celebrating our anniversary with the other half, and picked up this gorgeous volume of Spaces while I was there. It is packed full of gorgeous homes to pore over, I'm just waiting for the right time to really get stuck into it! I would SO love to do something similar to this with 91 Magazine - what do you think?! 

Come on over to Instagram and say hi - I'm @patchworkhrmy and share your lovely moments with #amonthoflovely. x
