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..

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

Happiness is for every one!!

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.

Knowing I never have to consider spending money on something so restrictive.

Shoes, and more shoes, I was able to walk away, comfortable as they are, I said “No thank you” and walked away.

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?

Happiness is –

sharing with you.

story time — curiosity + patience

The girls watched silently, waiting for the music to come closer.  To their dismay, it stopped, and they were nowhere near figuring out where it was coming from.  They first heard the music when the old dresser was moved to where it now stood in the sun room.

Not just one of them had heard it, they all had. It reminded Kit of the music box her grandmother once had.  She looked all around the room, but there was no music box, or any other object that looked like one.

China’s eyes were big with wonder. The music had made her think of the time that the school had visited the big department store during the Christmas holidays.  The teacher had wanted them to see the big window display with all the coloured lights and sparkling snowflakes.  The elves had been busy in Santa’s workshop the happy music had filled the room as they happily hummed  while packing all the presents for Santa’s big night.

Did it have something to do with the old dresser?  If only they could get closer without making a lot of noise or drawing attention to themselves.  They were supposed to be in bed.  Ginger the eldest of the girls, was supposed to be doing her chores, but Kit saw her peeking out from the other room.  Everyone was interested.

“Bedtime girls, I’ll be in shortly to say goodnight.” sigh, they knew that it would be tomorrow before they would be given a clue or information.. If Q was coming to tuck them in… that meant, it was going to be lights out.  Scampering back to their respective rooms, they climbed back into bed.  Being patient was going to be hard.

As Q tucked them in, she whispered “tomorrow is another day, you will have lots of time to explore and look around” China and Kit whispered as Q moved on to see Chen-May and Leonie “what Precept do you think will help us be patient and allow things to progress at their own pace”  giggling China said, “Q is always reminding us of our lessons”  with that, both girls closed their eyes and let their anticipation and dreams carry them into the magical land  of sleep.

Why?

I tried, I wanted to

I even brought my pens with me, I planned it all, the lined pages,

pristine white, blank pages,

for days I even  practiced the different styles of lettering

anticipation high, time to doodle and write.

Yet when I got to where we were going,

Not once, did I use the pens to practice my lettering

The pads of blank pages, came home empty.

Why?

It is the journey, the living each day that is important, obviously, while away my time was filled with happy moments, new discoveries,  a sense of adventure and of course, the cherished company of a wonderful husband and our two frisky “canine children”

PL Precept # 18  Each moment is a turning point.

When we live in the NOW, there are no regrets.

PL Precept # 11  Always be with God

May happiness and good health bless your day today!

Me and rust

If there is rust, I’ll find it.  I love the way it grows and expands, changing as it ages. Ok it is not for everyone.  To my artist’s eye it has a melody all its very own. Left to slowly decompose, erode and oxidize  it has  patina and look that is unique, like a snowflake.  At least it does to my eye.

I have a whole section of film that is all rust.  For now it is part of my private collection.  When I want inspiration, I can play it back and let each image dance across the screen in slow motion. Oooohhh so powerful.

Smiles out at her friends.. that is why that expression that has been around for ages, is so fitting here… “to each his/her own”

Happy start of the week my lovelies.  May it be successful, productive and happy.
