delighting in the little things......

Hello friends!  How happy am I to be here!  Are little signs of Autumn peaking its head in your neighborhood.  I am feeling and seeing little subtle signs....cooler mornings and evenings and even a few fallen leaves.  I am so ready for lovely Autumn how about you.

Do you believe that a daily practice of gratitude and thanksgiving make for a happier heart.  I truly believe it does.  According to "Webster Dictionary", gratitude is the state of being grateful; thankfulness.

I remember as a little girl Mom would often remind us kids to be "thankful".  As a little one I really didn't comprehend the fullness of her reminder, I simply wanted what I wanted.:o)  Mother knew just how fortunate we were even in mist of not having very much and reminded us kids of that fact.  I now see clearly what mother was trying to teach, and presently teach the same to others.  Let us not my friends forget to give thanks each and everyday for the goodness in our lives.  Oh and while giving thanks, lets us not forget about the little things we sometimes take for granted...a hot cup of tea, a smile from your hubby, a warm blanket or a call from a friend.  Gratitude and thanksgiving is a good thing!:o)

Hope each and everyone of you are enjoying a lovely day!  Chat with you soon♥

I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart;
I will recount all of your wonderful deeds.

Psalm 9:1 (ASV)

hello my friend.....

A big hello and hug to each and everyone of you!   Is it really August already, and a full week into it at that!  July simply flew by!  It seems as though I looked up and August was here.:o)  I guess that is a good thing...they say time flies when you are having fun.  My little studio has been one busy place this summer.

I know I promised lots of photos, but I am afraid Honey or I have not picked up the camera that much in recent weeks.  He has been busy studying and I have been giving my attention to the custom bridal orders due to leave the studio soon.  Honey has indeed been wonderful in helping me where he can.  I've even taught him how to use the paper trimmer!  Once he got the hang of it, he really is quite good.:o) 

I hope your summer has been a beautiful one.  We have certainly been enjoying a lovely one, but so hard to believe we are almost nearing the close of another year.  Is it me or did this year simply fly by.  My posting will be a little less for the remainder of the summer, but I promise I will be around to visit each and everyone of can never go too long without visiting a friend.  Enjoy a beautiful week!

By the way, the lovely swan photo came from  They have lovely free photos.  I hope you take a peek.  Take care♥
