I am overwhelmed. Busy. Appointments. Meetings. Deadlines. Needing to clone myself. I say "no" to a lot of things but there are things now that can't be said "no" to. (Yep, I know, don't ever end a sentence with the word to.) Anxiously awaiting time for the "fun" me to be able to do things again. Right now it is the "mom on a mission" me trudging through the days on the calendar, yet they seem to go by much too rapidly.
These beautiful roses are a vintage scrap I am sharing with you. Make something beautiful with them. I will live through your artfulness until I find time for my own.
A little list of things that bring joy:
*pretty pink flowered vintage cotton pillow cases, all soft and nice from hundreds of washings
*my favorite perfume softly lingering many hours after being applied
*very old and extra tattered books in a pile that is not a neatly lined up stack
*a beautiful milk glass bowl with lacy edge that cost just 25 cents filled with brightly colored oranges
