A few simple joys ~

Sunset through the living room window this past Friday afternoon....

Our precious granddaughter Clara
playing Saturday afternoon at Mimi and Papa's ~
Playing is a very a serious business you know....

Working on my little army of snowmen,
here they are waiting for their hats and collars ~

I don't know why I love tiny stuff so much....
but when I was working on the snowmen ornaments
I had to make a teeny tiny one!

A bad photo of my teeny snowman in progress...

My simple weekend in a nutshell :)

Noah is out of school this week for Thanksgiving!!
I love no schedule...but I DO have to get this house presentable
for my family next Saturday for our Thanksgiving dinner ~
we go to Dennis' family's dinner on Thursday.

I'm feeling so much better sweet friends....
and what a blessing!!!
We take our health for granted you know ~
it's so good to feel good!!

Have an amazing Monday dear friends,
hugs and love,

Hey Lady
Lovin your Sweet Snowmen... What kind of Topiary is that in the window??? I saw some of that Angel Something plant (can't remember even the name of it today) today at a store, the Plant we saw in that Great Booth at Scott's Antique Show ~ it was $19 so too much for me, but I did pick up a small Baby Tears Plant.... I was happy about that~ Have a Wonderful Week with Family & a Happy Thanksgiving

Hi sweet Dawn,
You had the best week-end ,we can wish for-
a grandchild playing next to us, and "playing" ourself, with what is love.
I wish you happy thanksgiving meetings with family, dear friend-
Love the mini snowman--is he meant for a christmas tree?
Loving hugs-

I love the snowmen. I'm using your bird paper clay tutorial to make tiny ones! I thought that might make you happy. I'll send you an email when they are done. I'm sure after Thanksgiving. Everyone comes to my house on Thursday and still have the day job to contend with...many blessings to you and yours this holiday! Clara is adorable!

I love having no schedule, too, Dawn! I wish my week work like that, but today through Wed. I have to live a scheduled life. I am looking forward to Wed. afternoon, when my day job will probably allow us to leave at 4 instead of 5 for the holiday weekend. I have 4 days of no plans, except to bring the Christmas holidays into my home!

Glad you are feeling better Dawn. Your snowmen are darling but the sweet face of little Clara wins the prize! What fun Christmas will be for your family! :)

Clara is playing so nicely. I bet she can keep herself entertained for hours. So glad that you are feeling better. I agree with you, we do take our health for granted until... Sounds as if you have a busy week ahead! Enjoy it...

It is often the simple pleasures in life that do capture our hearts and mean the most. It looks like you have been counting your blessings. Have a happy Thanksgiving.

I just adore your snowmen. I really needed something to cheer me up tonight and these did. Your tutorial is super. I think that this will be the next thing I do when am done with my current projects.
