I woke up this morning and my sister handed me a cup of steaming hot coffee.... ...we sat out on the lanai and looked out over the pool and beyond to the golf course...
...this is the life!
I took a quick picture of this little treasure that I found at the thrift store yesterday afternoon... ...I can never pass up old velvet...especially old blue velvet. Do you know what this little piece is? My guess is that it is an incense burner. What do you think?
After breakfast we picked up my parents and drove out to Ft. De Soto Beach... ...a beautiful natural beach in the South Pasadena area...
It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed spending time in the sun and sea with my Mom and Dad.
Just as we were leaving I looked down and found this lucky sand dollar!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! We hope to do some more thrifting tomorrow and perhaps a flea market or two... Take care! :)
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.
