Happy Friday




This is a journal I created for a swap hosted by Lenna Andrews....The theme was "By the Sea".
Boy! this Friday sure did come around fast! Here are today's "Happy Things"......
knowing it's almost Spring when people are starting to panic about income taxes
roadhouses
a book nook
old wood to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read
a snowman on the football field
feeling wonderful after washing your hair
hardware stores with an inexhaustible supply of eminently useful items
collecting pinecones
snow swirls
the yellowing pages of old books
spaciousness
challenging your lover to a game of checkers or Scrabble, baking some cookies and adding Spanish sherry and mellow jazz
really thick eyelashes
secret lands
sleeping sprawled out on the bed
life's great pleasures
ink etchings
going on the roof and examining your neighborhood
flower seeds
passion and compassion
a morning tea party: lighted fire, small clove-studded apples floating in hot cider, homemade toast with honey butter, and breakfast sausage cooked in maple syrup
and last but not least.....opera houses.
That should be enough to ponder on today!!! I am making good progress on the studio...baked a yellow cake yesterday with chocolate frosting...and took Toby to the groomers this morning for a bath and cut! I've been reading a really good book called "Wild Swans" by Jung Chang...and listening to "Los Lonely Boys"....."Little River Band"...and "Joan Osbourne"....I hope to finish some chunky 4x4 book pages today..and read some blogs!!!!!! Hope everyone has a loving....peaceful....exciting Friday!

And another happy Friday thing: your Friday lists!

You always hit on a handful of things I haven't thought of for a while and yet am immediately grateful for!

The journal is beautiful, Vicci! With those perfect seafoam colors, the shells and stars, it looks like you cast a net into your vivid imagination and came up with the perfect items to address this theme. Incredibly lovely!

Okay, so I've already posted twice on this, but I had to come back and take another look at this lovely journal. Maybe it's my love of the ocean and water in general. It's simply gorgeous, Vicci! Your work amazes me, and I think this is my favorite of all the things I've seen so far. It makes me want to *try*....
