Today was one of those rainy Saturdays that wasn't very productive... ...but a comfortable and pretty good day anyway.
I can never seem to get much done when Mr. Flea is home ... ...or at least that is my excuse today!
But I did get to do a bit of reading this afternoon... Looking for inspiration, direction and a little courage to dip my toes in the water!
I finally received my first issue of Vakre.... ...lots of inspiring photographs!
...and Carole of Maynard Greenhouse sent me a copy of Jeanne D'Arc Living.... ...all gift wrapped so pretty with a sweet little tag (see the 52?)
I was excited to see an article on decorating with old apple boxes.... Sheesh....I 've got a slew of these from my grandparents farm! Some are holding Mr. Flea's album collection upstairs...some are in the basement. I'll have to clean them up for a photo shoot soon!
Just two more days to enter the 400th Post Give-Back! ....click HERE if you still need to enter!
Thank you so much for your lovely comments... You all make me feel so good!
It has been so much fun to read about everyone's collections! Thank you for sharing your stories and telling me what makes your heart go pitter patter!
Tomorrow, if the weather cooperates, I will be off to the flea market!
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.
