a list of happy things:

+ paint palettes.

+ summer skirts.

+ new leather sandals.

+ pretty pink peonies.
+ snuggling children.

+ dinner ready.

+ quiet times reading/praying.

+ friends who 'get' me.

+ family.

+ chocolate cake.

+ colourful fabric.

+ new wedding band!

Just a few of the highlights of my week so far, and how goes yours?

Oh, and yes.. I ordered a new wedding band since I seem to have lost misplaced my chunky big amber one (for the past year)!  I love these stacking, spinner, 'meditation' rings I've seen lately.  Opted to get a frugal version of it from Etsy... and it's a beauty.
Three spinning rings within it (silver and copper).

 You may have guessed I'm not a 'diamond' type gal.
Keep it chunky, keep it weird... much like myself, thank you.

What's making you happy this week?

  4. Happy happy happy... pretty new rings there mama!

    Over here happiness is coming in the form of watching children grow into interesting young people... they are starting to stir new thoughts and ideas in me from their perspectives... truly amazing when our children teach us isn't it? Happiness is in the stash of fat free international delight currently sitting in the refrigerator (addiction as of late)... happiness is the sun actually shining today!!! And happiness is a package that arrived in the mail... little surprises wrapped with beautiful detail in turquoise yarn and birch bark. Each envelope containing a cherished treasure made by hand with love by you dear mama! Thank-you. You spoiled me too much! Mushrooms and nests and buntings oh my. A few snaps below to show you a couple of these gifts in their new home.

    Thank-you so much for making my heart happy!
