101 Simple Pleasures

I just loved this list of 101 Simple Pleasures from Create and Decorate Magazine's Blog so much that I thought it was worth passing along to you. I hope it makes you smile.

I have come down with a big case of Spring Fever!! The weather has finally warmed up here and I find myself outside more and more every day. Yesterday I mowed the lawn and then sat on the porch for a while just taking in the sunshine and fresh air and daydreaming about what I want to put in the flower beds this year. I DO love this time of year. Here's to a change of seasons and all the possibilities of Spring....

Wishing you many blessings...Susan

Happy St. Patricks' Day!!

May your home be filled with laughter
May your pockets be filled with gold
And may you have all the happiness
Your Irish heart can hold.

Handsome Fella!

I spent the day with my grandson, Sawyer, last Friday. I can tell you, my mind has blocked out how much WORK it is to care for a 5 1/2 month old baby! BTW pressing an 18lb baby over your head several times in one day is a great workout for the upper chest. My chest muscles were so sore the next day.

I didn't sit down for more than 5 minutes the whole day on Friday, and somehow Pat and Courtney manage work, college (with excellent GPAs) the responsibility of home and family, including this wonderfully happy, healthy, sweet baby boy! Amazing!

What a difference a few days can make...

It's GORGEOUS here today...70 degrees!!! Cody pup was pacing at the front door this morning to get out and enjoy this beautiful day. I listened and out we went. He wore himself out playing in the sunshine and rolling in the grass. I was busy working in the studio and I thought I heard snoring....

hee hee...he's all tuckered out!

I have been busy working on some fun little whimsies that I just added to my Etsy shop. I am loving how these little dollies turned out and there are more on the way! I would love to know if you have a fav dollie that I created that you would like to see re-created as a whimsy!!!

I hope you are having a great day today!!! Blessings....Susan

The view from my studio today...

It's snowing in Dallas, Georgia...again! I think this is the most snowfall in one winter that I've seen since I moved away from NY in 1981!! Not to burst anyone's bubble, but we do actually get snow in the South. Usually one little snow flurry or two...just enough to clear out the bread and milk aisles in every local grocery store. But, this is way above and beyond this year. I know it's a pain for everyone to drive in, but it is soooo pretty! I prefer to see the ground covered with these clean white flakes over the wet mud we usually have any day!

Wishing you a beautiful day today...whatever comes your way! Susan
