expect nothing…appreciate everything…it’s the little things to excite happy thoughts in each day…


a lovely little blush pink rose…even if placed in a kitchen drinking glass

a croissant with your favorite jam…served on a sweet little vintage plate

writing a note to a friend

a morning walk with someone special…no phone, no interruptions…only quiet time to take in nature’s offerings and enjoying each other’s company

baking a simple batch of chocolate chip cookies to share

finding a cozy spot with a good book, a cup of tea, a lovely scented candle

running a bath with volumes of bubbles

being there for others

I’ve been busy creating and working on new things for the shop…fun merchandise arriving for the February sale.

I hope your day was a marvelous one…
