Polka Dot Bag

Polka Dot Bag

A very girly and super cute thing, just for me. Yes, I got myself a polka dot bag. Too small for travel adventures but perfect for embroidery floss and tiny projects. Just perfect because it makes me happy! PS: Not bought today, a while back. But still makes me smile when I see it. Related […]

My first Apron

Oh, it’s delightful to have ambitions… And there never seems to be any end to them – that’s the best of it. Just as soon as you attain to one ambition you see another one glittering higher up still. It does make life so interesting. /Anne Shirley I have made my first apron! What a […]

Summer breakfast

I will add “eat more fresh berries” to my Summer Manifesto. They are lovely, and not only in taste but in how they look and make me feel inside. It’s easy to forget that it is right now that I need to buy them, bring them home and enjoy them. It’s the same with the […]

The Moment! […]

In My Easter Window

In My Easter Window

My Easter decoration efforts make me happy. I love the colours and figures of Easter.

I love that we celebrate with little […]

Time to use these Cute Fabrics

It’s easy to hold our great ideas hostage, or to talk them away into things we’ll do someday, or wanted to do once, but itís so much more thrilling to free them and watch them take flight. Mary Beth Maziarz I am working on a little sewing project that will become a gift. Schhy, it’s […]

Little nuggets of Joy

Little nuggets of Joy

A few more things that I enjoy. Little things that make me happy and that are worth photographing and remembering. Special gifts. Like getting a miniature pot with a cute pink flower (above), a moving-in-present from a friend. And then having a craft night with wine, paper and lots of laughter together. One evening my […]

Right now I enjoy

Right now I enjoy

I experience the passage of time and the particulars of my surroundings with my physical beingĖwith my body and mind Ė and the act of making things that reflect my thoughts and feelings is a way of bouncing something back.
