I wanted to share this special gift that sweet girlfriend Paula gave me last week...
Do you see this set of three white vellum covered books on Paula's mantle? ... photo courtesy of Carole...
Well, now they are mine! Or at least three others, similarly covered are mine! We girls have been admiring stacks of these beautifully covered books at one of our favorite stores...Taken For Granite... The last time Paula visited...they were on sale... ...she scored big! ...and of course, being Paula....she shared with Evi and me! I just love them!
It was such a beautiful weekend...the sun shone both days...all day long. I'm a different person when the sun shines!
You've got to be in it to win it! Wouldn't a $50 gift certificate to Lisa's online shop be wonderful? ...and don't forget....also included in this Give-Back is a copy of the new Jeanne D'Arc Living Magazine and that ever so special edition of Somerset Life!
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
