A Few Things That Make Me Smile!

Today, the sun was shining so bright through my living room window.

I thought I better take advantage of it and snap a few pictures to share with you.

So, here are a few things that make me smile when I see them.

Nothing fancy, just pretty.

The above picture is a sweet little jar filled with nesting materials and few (real) speckled eggs.

I spotted this pretty little jar at Monticello.

The talented girls Diana or Donna, I'm not sure which one, put this together.

Isn't it wonderful?

Here is a pretty wedding topper I found.

I love the different material it has been made with.

Here are a couple of lavender strawberries I made, which have a little story behind them.

They make me grin!

And last, one of my favorite pin cushions.

It's very well used and I love everything about it!

That's it for now!

Thank you for stopping by and seeing a few of the things I enjoy!

Love the pin cushion! I've always thought I should collect them since I sew, but have never taken the plunge. I love the way they look and the fact that there are millions of different kinds. Personally, I keep my pins in a tin, so maybe that has colored my opinion of their utility. In any case, I love yours!

Hi Debbie! I love the jar with the eggs. I've been trying to put together one of those myself lately and haven't found the perfect combo yet! I love the idea of this post. If you don't mind I might do something similar and link back here. Would that be okay?

These certainly made me smile tonight.
I love the worn and faded pin cushion so much. What a charmer. I love anything that you can tell someone really loved before you.

My fave is the wedding stuff you have there. how is the web-store going? I'm thinking about doing some online selling too...trying to get rid of some of this abundance!
