Happy Leap Day!

Today is a special day. Leap Day!

A Swedish pocket calendar from the year 2008 showing February 29
February 29 is a date that usually occurs every four years, and is called leap day. This day is added to the calendar in leap years as a corrective measure, because the earth does not orbit around the sun in precisely 365 days.

Enjoy your day and leap on forward!

Oh Stanley....

The many faces of Stanley our English Springer Spaniel.
He sits on my favorite yellow couch and peers out the window.
So comfy and cozy as he poses for the camera.
Nothing can break his stare as he gazes out the window.

His sweet carmel colored hairs above his eye give him a distinct charming look.
This is our pooch. We love him dearly. He will be 2 years old in April. He's full of personality and character that's for sure. Our Springer Spaniel Stanley!
Have a great day!

Blowing Bubbles....


Sat on my back step blowing bubbles
Each shining soapy bubble is perfect
I'm filling them all with my love
And sending them to the heavens above
All of them are for you with all of my love

Charlotte Murray

For The love of Bubbles... thin as air and so lovely to touch. They make you smile and can fill the moment with glee. I'm sharing a photo I captured of a perfect bubble my daughter made just before she blew it up and away. Oh what joy bubbles can do!

Made with love....

 It's that time! It's so easy to do and really doesn't take that much time. Make your own special Valentines! They are so sweet and made with love! These Valentines I made with cut out card stock circles. I dipped them in left over coffee from the morning pot and baked them  for a few minutes at 350 degrees. I then cut out random circles of Valentine style papers{It can be pink and red with whatever images that could be romantic}. I folded the edges in a bit and glued a small dot on the back of the cicles and put them together. I used a pink seam binding for the ribbon but any style ribbon or string will do. These are darling and voila!  I hoped I inspired you to get out your papers and make your own! It's not too late!

Pink-Nurturing Kindness

Ahhhh.. the color pink. My favorite. Pink symbolizes love,beauty, kindness and compasion. It heals grief and sadness,soothes difficulties in both romantic and family relationships. It gives selfworth, love and acceptance. It means I care. Not just for Valentine's Day but for everyday. So spread the pink and make yourself feel good. I purchased these pink hydrangas yesterday. They are so pretty. I placed them in my front foyer for everyone to see.{well anyone who walks in my foyer}.They make me feel good every time I walk by them!
"Spread the love everywhere you go, let no one ever come to you without leaving happier"~ Mother Theresa
Happy Weekend!

Honey be mine.......

How doth the little busy bee
Improve each shining hour,
And gather honey all the day
From every opening flower.
