Gratitude #2 - Sunshine

I'm so grateful to see sunshine on this cold and blustery day. Sunshine always lifts my spirits. 

And - it may be silly to be grateful for sunflowers, but I am! Having photos of sunny sunflowers helps keep me cheerful on our cold  gray winter days.

Gratitude #1 - Treasure Hunting

I'm grateful for the opportunity to "find" treasures that will make someone's day.  When I'm "picking" at estate sales or thrift stores, I tend pick out things that I'd buy if I were keeping them for myself. Not sure it's good business sense, but it works for me. 

This particular item I thought was so "homely" that he was cute.  And so I bought him. 

And he was just what someone was looking for! And he makes her happy! 

"I was so excited to receive my piggy bank today.  He's beautiful and arrived so quickly and in such good condition all the way from Washington - hard to believe.  It looks brand new and I love it.

My mom died 3 years ago and this was one of the things she bought me as a child.  Just seeing it again (in person) makes me happy thinking of those good old days.
Thanks so much for the great service and for having it in the first place."

simple letter of gratitude from a customer brings a smile to my heart.

An Autumn Walk

Taking advantage of a sunny autumn day at Hertz Trail on Lake Whatcom. 
 Along the trail. 

Big Leaf maple and my feet.


 Looking back at the creek from the bridge.


Kokanee heading up stream. 
These were just up from where the mouth of the creek comes into the lake.

Loving Yourself

"The fact that someone else loves you 
doesn’t rescue you from the project of loving yourself."

Journaling with friends

Last weekend we had an art retreat type gathering at my home; a special group of ladies whom I adore from around the Pacific Northwest. There is something about being with like minded folks and just creating. 

This is one of the spreads that is mostly finished... 

and more in process...

Happy Friday!
