Happy Memorial Day weekend!! Having fun at Horsetooth Reservoir.

Do not let trifles disturb your tranquillity of mind...
Life is too precious to be scarificed for the nonessential
and transient...Ignore the inconsequential.

Nature is painting for us,
day after day,
pictures of infinite beauty
if only we have eyes
to see them.........

Time to be.

Happy Sunny Wednesday! I'm back from my trip to CA, must get back into blogging. I wanted to share with you the purse I gave to my future daughter in law Wendy. She loves sunflowers so I painted a big sunflower on this cute straw bag. She liked it, that made me happy.

Today I want to leave you with this thought....There is but one, and only one magnificent You!
Celebrate the one and only You!!!

                                       Mimiroo and Scarlettroo at the Sacramento Zoo.
What a great day we had Monday at the Zoo with good friend Mari Jo her Grand son Hunter, Little Scarlett and Juliette. It was overcast and cloudy but the animals were very active. Then as we finished our day with a ride on the carosel it started raining, time to go home and take naps!

It Doesn't get much better than Grand daughters on my lap last night saying "My Mimi" Pure Bliss for Mimi.
My Loves

My Beautiful Daughter and Grand daughter yesterday before the wedding shower.

Hello dear readers, I've been in CA for a few days visiting my family. Yesterday I attended a Wedding shower for My soon to be Daughter in Law Wendy. I wanted to share the Card box I painted for them. My daughter and I fixed it up like a gift basket with all kinds of goodies, including a place setting from their registry. It was a lovely shower and  being there with my daughter and Grand daughter made it all the more special.

I am so blessed with a wonderful family. I had such a nice Mother's Day even though we weren't all together. My family made me feel very special and I love them more than words can say.
Happy Monday everyone, I hope your week is starting off good.
I'm being an ADD artist, Upholstering an ottoman, grouting a couple of mosaic projects, painting a couple new handbags. Why do I feel like everything is right with the world when I have multiple projects going? Oh well, it makes me happy and that's when we're supposed to be our most centered. I'm just so darn centered today!
Have a happy day!

Hello dear readers...Do you love red and Poppies as much as I do? This is my newest hand painted bag posted today on Etsy. Large red coach tote, original hand painted art...pure bliss.

Happy Saturday dear readers, hope it's as beautiful where you are as it is here today. Think about this, no matter where we go, meeet, travel, you never know what an ordinary coincidence may produce. It may open the door to an extraordinary opportunity!

I read in the April issue of Veranda that Choosing a previously loved leather handbag saves as much energy as a flight from London to Paris. Clean air, hot handbag, everybody wins. This was an e-bay add. I've been out "Thrifting" today, some great new handbags coming soon. Check back soon for my newest Etsy additions.

Happy Friday everyone! Time to kick back and relax a little!!

Happy Thursday....I found this quote and it really has stuck in my head. The older I get the more it means to me.

I was in one of those "Lost in thought" moments this morning where I had to say to myself,
STOP, quit thinking so much, just breathe. Sometimes we can't quiet all the thoughts in our mind but if we can just stop, let go of things, and Breathe, oh how good it feels. I love this phootograph by my husband. It's a great picture to Breathe, let go of things and relax to.
Have a beautiful day!
