Hearts ♥ !

I get excited when February comes.
Anyone who knows me knows I love hearts!
And of course, I love Valentines.
As January now quickly comes to a close,
I'd like to share some February Love with you!

...with a capital "T".

But oh, I do love my Ellie-Bells!

Maybe it was a long, cold, dreary week for you?
Hope you can do something nice for yourself now.

Happy weekend to all!

A January Walk... the snow. I have always thought that Queen Anne's Lace was beautiful, but when I spotted the skeleton of one in winter, it took my breath away.
May you find beauty in this day, wherever you are.

A Walk Down my Little Road...

...will finally show you my excitement
that the exterior is getting finished
on my 160-ish-year-old home!
Years of anticipation. It's coming! It's coming!
I like the grays.
The darker charcoal gray shutters may be here
in a couple of weeks.
And, hold onto your hats...feel it...feel it...
I have a closet inside! Yes, it's been months
and I have a closet. This calls for a party.
I want to picnic in it. Oh, the little pleasures.
A closet again.
Even my clothes piles are happy.
Construction people are marvelous.
Construction at home is loud. I am so ready for quiet...♥
Wishing you all a peaceful winter day.

Another January Birthday Baby..

It's January 17th again!
The years do go faster & faster...
Here's me at 2 with my most favorite present.
I still remember this dolly, though I can not remember her name.
...this was how many years ago ????!!!!
Thank you for a wonderful, friend-filled year!
And thank you to my cousin for sending me this (antique) photo!
Happy birthday, Michelle Obama, Ben Franklin, Jim Carey, Boy, I have some good company here! :D

Some Quiet Time...

...just to be,
amidst the on-going chaos of remodeling
all of the inside
and outside
of this old farmhouse...since April...
I love that it is
getting done
after years of anticipation
...but oh, the plaster dust,
and noise!

Hope you have a happy rest of the week!

A Week into the New Year!

I am working on 2010's self-promises. That does sound better than "resolutions", doesn't it?!
I really want to try to make more time to do my art journaling....and to overcome my fear of sharing it.

I hope you are finding many opportunities to do what you love.... xo Kathy
