Incredibly, well over 200k images have now been tagged to #littlestoriesofmylife, over on Instagram. It’s a hashtag that I started for celebrating and/or sharing the tiniest elements of the stories of our lives. Small doesn’t equate to insignificant: these are the little moments that add up to the narratives that carry us all.

This November, the #littlestoriesofmylife gallery was sponsored by We Are Stardust, a greetings card shop where art and science collide. Cards are researched, illustrated and designed by Agnes Becker for those with wild natures, sophisticated minds, and loyal hearts. Each card captures a fact, story or curiosity, so that when you post a We Are Stardust card to your loved one, you gift them with a moment of wonder for the natural world. We are Stardust kindly provided a box of their stunning Christmas cards for the creator of this month’s winning image.

These are the runners up, as chosen by Agnes of We Are Stardust:

And as the winner, Agnes has chosen this shot by Lou of @littlegreenshed. ‘The photo reminds me of my Mum and Dad’s home’, she explains, ‘and the skull makes me think of a naturalist collector and is therefore quite We Are Stardust. Also I identify a lot with the caption. If I had kids I’d probably me more excited than they would be about seeing Fantastic Beasts! We are Stardust is all about celebrating the fantastic beasts on our Earth too.’

littlegreenshed@littlegreenshed: ‘It’s the weekend, we made it through that nightmare week. This afternoon we are off to the cinema to see ‘Fantastic Beasts’. I’m more excited than the kids! What are up to today? #aconsideredhome #natureinthehome

Congratulations to all those selected and a big thank you to Agnes and We are Stardust for your support this month. Finally, thank you to everyone who has tagged their images so far. The #littlestoriesofmylife gallery is a wonderful space to lose a few moments. Please do continue to share your small stories.
