Celebrate people who are in your life-- past and present, close by as well as far away. Thank eveyone who contributes to your sense of well-being and joy, whether you know them personally or not. Every day, think of all the people who help make your life so rich and rewarding.

This is also a beautiful and really fun room from Domino as well. It sort of reminds me of this sweet woman who lived in our town before she died. She was so nice to let me photograph her home and art collection. She was a tiny little person and she had a tiny little kitchen like this one. Her cottage was a little doll house and whenever I pass her home, I'm sad that she's gone and no longer there. I think that she would be happy that the new owners are looking after her roses and making everything even more beautiful.
Granny Chics can be found at the great yard sale on the World Wide Web, Ebay. I like to type in vintage anything and I often come up with something fun. Look at this cute fabric which I found by searching vintage +bluebird... one of my favorite searches.
I love this style of jacket, and we've had it several times. I like the pink one that Lands End had the best (sold out) and I like the price better than this one (J Crew Kids). Has anyone seen another pink quilted jacket, it's a long shot but... I'd really like it a bit brighter and a bit cheaper.
