Loveliness

I had so much fun today creating my weekly scripture piece.
For the first time in a long time, it was all about paint. I used watercolors, acrylics, and some yummy Martha Stewart glitter.

The weather in Central Florida this weekend has been Amazing!  I worked outside on my portable art table and basked in the sunshine. 
Glitter always looks delicious in the sunshine...:)




The print is available here if you're interested :)   All prints will be embellished with real glitter.  Fun!

I had to make a run up to my local sewing shop yesterday, and I couldn't leave without these two fabrics.  I only grabbed fat quarters.  I'm going to have to go back and get a yard each for my fabric stash.  I love them!

I also ran into the Goodwill real quick.  I haven't been doing much thrifting lately but I thought I'd run in and take a peek.  I found this cutie for $2.99!  It needs a good scrubbing, but I think it's darling.  It's about 2 feet high.  When I get it all cleaned up I'll show you where it ends up.


I've been thinking a lot recently about our house space, the energy of our "things"...I'm trying to let go of things that we don't need or really love.  I have been happily influenced  from Heather, and her home philosphies, and it's a process.  Surrounding yourself with a clean, simple home decorated with things that bring you joy is a challenge I'm enjoying.

All my kids are home from school for President's Day.  We'll see where the day takes us!
Happy Monday
