jingle happy

OK this is a happy sound, but for me, I found recently a pair of these at a thrift shop so I was very happy.. The jingle of change to acquire them, pleased me big time…

Happy Monday everyone…. be happy & merry… have a brilliant day!

The clerk at Nordstrom, held up this evening bag for me, it was on sale for hundreds of dollars, I bought the backpack (purse) in her right hand.  I’m silly, but not “there” yet… for a “lark” maybe, but not at that price.  =^_^=

true, sometimes I am just plain silly…. join me?

Stash

fabric stash 4Happiness is finding that the coloured hook and loop tape is on sale, buy 1 and get 2 free.  I had not seen coloured hook and loop before, so I was for sure, having a few. Especially they were in the fall colours I was on the hunt for.

Took me awhile but I finally found the fat quarters, and when I did, I forgave the shop for hiding way in the back.  They were all half price. I managed to find enough quarters in the colours I was wanting.

fabric stash 3I’m even going to follow the “rules” and launder the pieces first before I start to cut them up and heat bond them.  I am showing you the raw pieces, before I play with them.  Hopefully I will eventually show you the end product.  I have no idea what I will do with the tape, but the possibilities are endless.

I’ve also begun to work on the art/junk journals again .. fall is in the air, I always get a nudge from Mother Nature at this time of year, the vibrant colours she splashes all around us is enticing.  Even the rows of golden rod and mellow yellows that dot the fields along the highways call out to me.

The unbelievable thrill of seeing the  1000 shades of orange/reds that wave from the hardwood trees that line the road, exhilarates.

My stash is slowly taking on the colour theme that I will work with. Yes I am excited at the pending creativity that is awake and churning to get going… anyone else out there feeling that zing that is floating around in the ethers of the bright fall days.  Not to mention the crisp night breezes that lull us to sleep.

It has been a super great Thursday  …  hello Friday, I’m ready for you.

May the happiness of the season, float effortlessly your way. Appreciate and enjoy this season of harvest.

My find of the day yesterday!

One just never knows when such a discovery will pop up.  Parked innocently minding it’s own business.  I couldn’t resist… no matter what passers by thought.. I was the paparazzi focused on my prize.     Some days it doesn’t take much to spark the flame. =^_^= smilePencil

Happy Monday everyone!

Colour riot Saturday

October abstract 5

If you haven’t guessed already, I love October, and the energy that seems to gather and explode in the shops around this time of year. I can’t at this moment in time, over haul our living quarters into a stage set, but I can dream about it. So, some of my time today was wandering the shops and taking pictures of items I’d want to collect and bring home, if this was the right time for me to do so.

October 2

How fun to have this at the back door to greet unsuspecting visitors.

October 3

Could it be the colours, the designs, or just the witching fun.

october 6a

Back when I was  really keen on redoing the “home” with such colourful and creative items, we had to make them ourselves.  Now, they are all over in the shops and so available.  I love the black, the way it sets off the bright yellows and glowing oranges.

I have been feeling more creative these days, the top picture is my bedtime activity, some people write in journals, I like to paint.  I have art journals, and junk journals, they are everywhere, so when I feel an urge, I can just pick one up and add to it.  Even the act of preparing a page so that it will take paint, or other medium is joyful.

Ripping up a magazine for the splotches of colour that have caught my eye is very relaxing…. then to see it reborn in a totally “MY ” way  is absolutely satisfying.  Same applies to fabric, wool, threads, cord, ribbon, tapes, the possibilities are endless.

The best part of visual expression, is that it is very personal, subjective, and really only needs to be enjoyed by me, myself and I.  If someone else likes it, that is bonus.

Life is what we make it.  There is an artist in all of us. We all choose to express ourselves differently. What is important is that we do so.

When a challenge looms before us.  How we deal with it, shows are creativity.  We are offered so many possibilities during the day, I am always amazed that not every one gets the  feeling of satisfaction at having a full day.

If you are in Canada, you are well on your way to enjoying a long week-end.  I am looking forward to mine.  It is a daunting task, but I am going to try to rearrange my studio/work area.

PL Precept # 18  Each moment is a turning point.

PL Precept # 19  Begin Once you Perceive

Happy, wonderful and productive Saturday !!  Let the colours shine.

 

for the love of shoes!

Shoes from China, to fit a Tonner 16″ doll.  Finally a shoe collection I don’t have to wear. simply enjoy.  It takes almost a month for them to get here from China, but well worth the wait.

Patience is one of the virtues, that I am continually working on. =^_^=

Happiness is!!!!

I know I am not alone in my “enjoyment” of shoes.  These are manageable, and I don’t have to wear them….

PL Precept # 7   Everything exists in Relativity..

Offer me a decadent dessert, or a pair of shoes……….. the shoes will win…

See no calories.! =^_^=

Enjoy a leisurely Saturday, have fun, and remember to share that winning smile !!!

Happiness is for every one!!

 

bloomer painting

bloomers painted on Pepsi

Pepsi needed a skirt, shorts, or jeans, I couldn’t find anything suitable, so we painted a pair of bloomers for her.  I think that she looks pretty “neat”.  Next I will dig up a pair of shoes for her feet.

This was fun.  How was your day?  Have a good start to a new week.

Finding these crisp white little flowers on my walk today.  They popped up at me, happy as can be… I smiled.. stopped and captured the moment.

Yes, it was a good day. My Morning walk, was refreshing, the hot sun and high humidity didn’t hit till after the noon hour,

How about you?  Have a good day?
