Compost Cutie

I always feel lucky that I have such a handy guy (even after 23+ years he never fails to impress me).
 
 
 Well he loves to compost, kitchen stuff, rabbit stuff, you name it if we can compost it, we will.
So we needed a much bigger composter because all of our other ones were full.
So as I worked on my own project (the never ending kitchen deck painting!)
My hon bun set out in just one day to make us a new one...


 I just love it, he did a great job (and man I just think he's super insanely cute...swoon...ha ha).

Nest

Snuggly, Soft, Sweet and Sleepy

This week I am working on these, a realistic colored pencil, an acrylic on wood & a teacup bun...
 
 
But you know, it's awfully difficult sometimes to be good and forge ahead with work and art
 
 
When you've got snuggly, soft and sleepy sweet souls beckoning to you to join them for a snug x 8!

Wooden Weaving Wonderful

I just had to show you...My Dad made me these...
As I watched Matilda acclimatize to the wild, he sat beside me; carving, sanding & oiling them...
 
 
Aren't they just so beautiful... 
Now I can really dive into my new venture of weaving

 
and I can do so even more happily because every time I use these shuttles,
I'll smile knowing that my talented Dad made them just for me.

Stringing The Sweetness

Most of the time it's all of the little beautiful things,
a bunch of loveliness all stringed together that makes for amazing days...
 
 
Like a beautiful and inspirational new book to soak in...

 
Taking time to watch your sweet pea help you sort through groceries...

 
sitting down to enjoy a tea and a plate of healthful yummies...

 
Gazing with a smile at some lovely flowers your honey brought you just because your you...
 
 
letting yourself push away all that's not necessary right this minute to enjoy these last few warm days.
Sometimes it's just grabbing onto gratitude and squeezing super hard to the happy
as much and as many times as you can throughout a day.
Hope your enjoying yours XO
