Savor the Summer!

It's the weekend - what'cha got planned?
Will you play in the water, 
or play in the sand...?
Or lie in meadow, gazing at the sky
pretending you're a butterfly, flying up high...?

Will you open a paint box
and make a glorious mess...?
Or color outside the lines
without one ounce of stress...?

Will you scale the highest mountains,
or climb the tallest trees...?
Or fly to the farthest planets,
or sail the seven seas...?

Will you dance with abandon,
and skip as you go...?
Or catch fireflies just after
the sun's final glow...?

Will you rejoice in each day,
let your imagination run wild, 
and savor your Summer
like you did as a child...?

But Jesus said, "Let the children come to me. Don't stop them! 
For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children."

In Class

Hi everybody!  I'm taking an online class this week that has been awesome so far. It's all about creating multiple revenue streams from your art/crafting/creative endeavors, and it has been so inspiring! I am already loaded up with ideas for new art adventures (and revamping existing ones). The course is about so much more than revenue generation though - we have a vibrant, creative, supportive group and and active message board/interaction - the brainstorming and sharing has been wonderful. And Laura Bray, the course developer and leader, and the specialists she lined up to share with us have all been fabulous!!

BTW, I found out about two new-to-me blog sites that I have added to my right sidebar - you might want to check them out and perhaps get added to their directories...


Just more great resources for connecting! 
I'm looking forward to sharing some of my new plans with you after class!! Have a great, creative week!!

A Pinterest Flea Market

Happy Friday friends! I thought it would be fun to do a little Pinterest "shopping" today and share some of my fun "finds"! Since I don't do too much garage saling these days, this helps a bit to get my junk "fix"...

CUTE pink Pyrex

Awesome vintage tablecloths!

Gorgeous china plates!

LOVE vintage buttons...but ones one cards are even better!

Really, can you ever have too many vintage hankies?

Can't pass up doilies - hopelessly addicted!

A glorious tangled pile of lace and trims - one of my favorite things to do when I get a pile of lace like this at a garage sale or flea market is to slowly go through the whole pile and wind each separate trim onto a card or just pin it into a loop...very relaxing...

OK, the back of my Jeep is full, so I'd better head home...thanks for Pinterest-junking with me today! C'mon and follow the fun with me over at Pinterest!!

Have a great weekend friends!!
