I've challenged myself to blog every Sunday about things that make me happy. I am currently reading Gretchen Rubin's "The Happiness Project" and I am loving it. I love the challenges she gives to herself and so I'm starting somewhere
I am really trying to become a better photographer so this will be photo heavy, and I am a much more visual person than word person.
Sunday seems like the perfect day to do this for me, because it is the end of the week. (Yes, I know to most of you it is the beginning of the week but for me Sunday always feels like the end.) Secondly, I usually have more time to reflect and have a peaceful moment to blog.
So here goes.
THINGS THAT MAKE ME HAPPY....PART ONE
|I LOVE BOOKS, ESPECIALLY ONES THAT INSPIRE MY CREATIVE WORK. THESE ARE SOME "CRAFTY" TYPES OF BOOKS THAT I KEEP ON MY DESK AND LOOK AT WEEKLY.|
|I JUST GOT THIS COOL MAGAZINE HOLDER AT AN ANTIQUE SHOW. THIS MAGAZINE IS MY FAV AT THE MOMENT. IT IS PRICEY BUT WORTH IT. LOTS OF EYE CANDY!||I LOVE THAT RED TOP, I GOT IT IN EUROPE ABOUT 12 YEARS AGO. IT REMINDS ME TO STAY PLAYFUL AT HEART.|
|MY NUMBER ONE DOTTER MADE THIS AT HER ACTIVITY DAYS GROUP. HER LEADER IS SO CREATIVE AND VERY INSPIRED. HOW CUTE IS THAT?I WAS LOVING IT ALL WEEK AS IT SAT ON MY DESK.|
|A CLEAN DESK......NEED I SAY MORE???|
|BEEHIVE BAZAAR IS A MONTH AWAY. I HAD A CHANCE TO WORK ON SOME CROWNS. I LOVED HOW THIS FRENCH INSPIRED MARIE CROWN TURNED OUT.|
|I HAVE SOME GREAT NEW IDEAS FOR THE BEEHIVE BAZAAR THAT WILL INCLUDE THESE BEAUTIES. MAKE SURE YOU LOOK FOR THEM!|
|CAN ONE PERSON REALLY HAVE TOO MANY VINTAGE GLASSES? THE LATEST IN MY COLLECTION VIA MY SWEET FRIEND CATHIE, WHO HAS SUCH AWESOME TASTE!|
It is really the little things in life I am learning to appreciate. Time with my daughter doing what we love, (all things vintage) or having family dinner with my parents, grandma and siblings on Sunday. In the getting stared section Rubin's book "The Happiness Project" she quotes the famous writer Colette,
"What a wonderful life I've had! I only wished I'd realized it sooner."
I've decided to appreciate the wonderful life I'm living now.
