Your laughter, your smile, your spirit..... my world is in your hands. Your enthusiasm, your curiousity, your infectious giggle....... dirt and bugs and rocks..... my world has been transformed by you.... wonderful you.

I found her at a local flea market. My daughter promptly named her Petit Baby Bella. She is just so cute I couldn't resist her. She will grace the cover of my "new" book, also found at the flea market, "French Grammar and Reader" published in 1901. I love it! And when I opened it up to take a read... out fell a rusty old paperclip, some french practice notes, and an old ribbon that someone had nested up safe inside this french book for safekeeping. Don't you just love flea markets?? My little slice of heaven.

Take a look at what has been happening in my backyard! I hate to say it out loud in case it goes away.... but I think spring has finally come to my little Canadian backyard! Those eggs are Canadian Geese eggs. Mama Goose wasn't too happy that I wanted to photograph her nest but she quickly settled in again once I backed off. The frogs in my pond sing the most delightful lullaby each night. I don't think I could sleep without their song right now! My daughter asked me what my favorite season was. I told her it was spring.... and these pictures are the reasons why..... but ask me again when the peonies bloom and I might have a different answer!!

Show and Tell Sundays.... I have enjoyed from afar..... but this theme made my heart skip a beat. I love vintage sparkle. I don't have a lot of them.... but I so admire them and adore the few that have fallen into my hands. Here they are in all their shiny sparkly glory.......

A friend of mine challenged me to move from "scrapbooking" to an art journal. It feels strange to make things..... just because.... and not for some purpose such as a scrapbook..... but it was fun and I liked the results. Here are my first three pages......

I must say - when mom is sick and not doing what she is suppose to be doing the nest becomes quite chaotic! Even more chaotic that normal chaotic! I was in bed for three days and I am only now feeling somewhat human again. I could have slept and slept and slept..... (you get the point). Anyways, I think I have the roof back on the house, and my health back in order. Welcome back to reality!!

Do you ever wish you could just fly away? But when you really think hard about taking flight you realize that the people and places you love keep you grounded? Someone told me that no matter what... we are never satisfied.... we are always searching and seeking out more, more and more. I have come to a sign post that is telling me that I need to make changes but my heart has not yet revealed to me what they are. I believe that true happiness can be found if only we listen....... and soar.
