Sometimes simple is better ~

I tend to create things with a simple design ~ but in this case the design fit the wording as well! One simple egg ~ to be cherished.

In this world today we get so swallowed up with all of the chaos and stress around us. If we would just slow down and cherish the small, simple things it helps to put everything into perspective.

The sweet smile on your child's face, a leaf floating to the ground in the breeze, the way your pup's head tilts when you talk, the words "thank you" or "I'm sorry"....these are so very simple but give us much joy and should be cherished ~ wishing you a wonderful Monday . . .

xxoo, Dawn

You are so right, Dawn. It's so easy to lose sight of the truly important things of life when we get too busy.

Dawn, and since our lives are made up of primarily simple things, simple tasks, ordinary people, what a shame if we don't appreciate them. You're so right.

There's something on my blog for you to print because you said you liked it so much. Welcome to anyone else who would like to have it also. :-)
It's the little "Dandelion Girl".

I just love this assemblage you made. It reminds me of the lines in the Bible about how even the sparrows of the field are taken care of - simple little ordinary birds....

This is perfect in it's simplicity. You have such an eye for creating beautiful things!

Renee said...

What a beautiful design . . .yes, the simple things are the most treasured. Now that I am a grandmom, I think back at my younger times, raising the children, working, and all the hoopla that goes with a busy life style. I don't cherish the dollar made, or the brownie points for the over time. I cherish the rock my son painted for me, the clay pot my daughter made - her first violin concert. Eating our Jesus cake on Christmas morn. I wish I would have been a grandma first. *smile* Thanks for sharing your thoughts today!

Lovely! I have started an assemblage similar to this one, but am waiting for the perfect item to finish it. I love the feeling bird nests evoke.

You are very talented!

Oh I so agree. Today I slowed down, walked outside into the warm sunshine, sat in the porch swing and enjoyed quiet conversation with my mom. It was so in the moment wonderful, simple and blessed.
