Happiness, not in another place but this place...not for another hour, but this hour.
happiness is the smell of these coffee stained tags that i found here. this is a little project i recently started. it involves these coffee tags, favorite words and a big stick. i will show you when i finish of course. i like the happiness one a lot...the idea of being happy no matter where you are in life. makes sense, don't you think?
hi there...how are you? it has been awhile. have you ever had so much to say and yet, nothing to say, all at the same time? that's kind of how i have been feeling lately. i have been keeping myself quite busy. there have been lots of home projects as well as art making. there is always art making...that never stops. i am finally painting all of my rooms that nice fresh white i have been dreaming about. and whenever fresh paint gets put down, it makes me want to change all sorts of other things. i have been "decluttering" in a big way. figuratively and literally. some of my treasures have been making their way into my shop. lots of pictures to take.
i saw a commercial on tv last night with a guy trying to be ferris bueller. he said, "life moves pretty fast. if you don't stop and look around once in a while you could miss it." so true right? so today i stopped and looked around. the first thing i noticed was the way the light came in this morning and illuminated this little corner of my living room. and i became a light chaser.
a little bit later on...the light cast its magic down the dark hallway leading the way to our bedrooms. after its fresh coat of white, i painted a rough band of chalkboard paint all the way around this hall and i have been writing poems and lyrics on it. just for fun.
i had this lace on my table and the when the light came through at lunchtime i noticed the way it can make pretty things even prettier.
and the way it makes simple things look kind of extraordinary.
my little furry buddy needed to go outside, so i popped out back for a little while and wow. a few days of rain and now sun. we have a jungle and the flowers have burst open.
it is time for me to plan my dinner, so i have wrapped up my light chasing for now. i hope you are able to find some time to stop and look around this weekend. who knows what you will find...
