"For most of life, nothing wonderful happens, if you don't enjoy getting up and working and finishing your work and sitting down to a meal with family or friends, then chances are you're not going to be very happy. If someone bases his/her happiness on major events like a great job, huge amounts of money, a flawlessly happy marriage or a trip to Paris that person isn't going to be happy much of the time. If, on the other hand, happiness depends on a good breakfast, flowers in the yard, a drink or a nap, then we are more likely to live with quite a bit of happiness." - Andy Rooney
I found a few things to put a smile on my face this week...
We had a lovely holiday weekend with family at the lake, boating, making ice cream, sitting by the fire... the older I get I realize how special these times really are.
I was at the Antique Mall (I think they recognize me now) and found a sugar bowl with a 'M'.
The book Hans Blomquist In Detail: Inspiring Ideas For Creative Interiors arrived at my doorstep (check it out here). It is filled with still life beauty. I haven't made it through the whole book, I am savoring each page. My leaf and peony image was inspired by the book.
My parents are coming next week for a visit and I will be taking a little break from the computer... but I will be back the following week.
Today I am joining Kim Klassen's Friday Finds.
Thank you so much for your visit!
Have a great day!
