Simple Things

















Simple things...
...make my heart sing!


Tomorrow night we expect a snow storm!
Do you know what that means?

It means Saturday morning we will sleep in (at least till 7am...)
...drink several cups of steaming hot coffee and be cozy and warm...

Then Santa Baby a.k.a. Mr. 52 a.k.a. Rob... will go out to play in the snow (er...shovel a little)
... and maybe...instead of doing chores...
I will bake a little, craft a little and make some Valentine magic...

What makes your heart sing?

Love your heart from the sheet of music. Simple things I love; watching the birds at the feeders in winter, fussing at one another as they wait a turn, and, I confess, that we haven't actually had snow here. At least not yet!

Linda said...

So simple...but you have so much creativity to put this all together in such a beautiful way!

SweetMelissa said...

Your pics made my heart go all aflutter! I hope your "snow day" is as sweet and relaxed as you envision too!

pst...we're trying our first linky party...hop on over and enter some clever ways to serve up superbowl snacks...and FUN!

OOOhhh, snow sounds wonderful! We've had rain, here in Oregon, and I heard next week is sunny! THAT makes my heart sing! This weekend, we're getting my greenhouse going! Another song haha.

Sounds like a perfect snow day. I would play in the snow and then walk around and take photos. Then I'd be ready for hot chocolate.

Love your musical hearts!

Just beautiful!
Lately, what makes my heart sing is just having some quiet time. Time when my mind shuts down, when I'm not worrying about this or that.

Enjoy the snow! :-)

Cloches, white china birds, white soup tureens, old Big Ben, wind up alarm clocks, vintage pitchers, Hossier cabinets, fresh flowers, and pesto all make my heart sing.

I have enjoyed your blog for a while! We have snow here too! Your "52" caught my eye. I was born in '52. My heart sings... love from a husband since '73, hugs from students, smiles from my grandkids, and a lick from my dog! Janice

When Santa Baby, I mean Mr. 52 comes in from shoveling snow, you'll be there to warm him up, right?
Sounds lovely...all we are expecting is rain and more rain!

Laura amor, I love your hearts...so simple yet beautiful...As for your weekend plans....I am thinking I am gonna steal your ideas :) I have a pink stone heart maybe quartz..that I bought a couple of for me and my Ita (grandma) on one of our many outings to the beach that she and I so loved...I kept a few of them and gave her the one with the most cracks because it was the one that she picked...I asked her why she wanted one that looked like it was going to break so easy with so many lines and cracks and she said, sometimes you have to look beyond the broken and the ugly to see the beauty inside...when she passed, I buried my favorite pink heart with her and hers...the imperfect one, I kept...it is now one of my most prized, simple...yet so beautiful items that remind me of her, it goes with me everywhere, everytime I change purses it comes with me and I can't tell you the calmness that comes over me when I hold it in my hand and caress it :) Besos, Rose

my heart is singing already. we don't have snow, but it's raining outside. and this morning, i lay back in my car seat, waiting for my husband to pick up my brother from the airport, and i just watched the rain hit the window. that was bliss for me.
