A Smile

If you have only one smile in you, give it to the people you love.  - Maya Angelou

Valentine's Day is just around the corner so it brings to mind the people you love that make your life fuller and richer.  My daughter is one such person.  She always has a hug for me each morning.  Shares my interests of vintage, crafts and art.  Loves me for all my faults and I have quite a few.  She is there for me when I need her such as taking this gorgeous photograph for me of the wreath she created for her bedroom door.  My life is so much more meaningful and grand because of her.  Love never ends.  I will always have a smile for my daughter.

Are You Open?

There is a vintage store that I go to that carries wonderful furniture that has been redone to wonderful shabby chic colors of grey mixed with blue, white, green or pink.  As I was looking around, I was joyfully surprise to find a small basket that contained cute vintage plastic ducks that float on water.  The ducks came in colors of blue, yellow and pink.  Guess which color I chose?

The duck will look great floating in my fountain during the warm weather.
