Pops of Colour

There's nothing like some bright and bold colour to get your day going! I love Anyes Galleani's work, and am looking for some wall space in my home to house one of her stunning pieces...

Are you also an admirer?
You can purchase originals and editions of her work HERE.

I hope you all enjoyed the weekend ~ I truly think that every week should have a three day weekend, that extra 24 hours is priceless! It was our first weekend without any sports games or practice, so I was gifted even more time. We have a full calendar of company in June, so much of the weekend was spent in the garden and taking care of home to-do projects. I am always happy scratching things off of my endless lists.

Have a wonderful week ahead,

Movies Alfresco

A much welcomed three day weekend is here, and I am so happy...
We are starting ours off tonight with a movie under the stars, a party I am really looking forward to as our weather is perfect for it! 
I hope that you will be enjoying yourself over the weekend too!
All work and no play is not the way to go (I am telling myself :)


this picture is via pinterest, but how I wish it was from my own backyard...perfection!

My thoughts and prayers are with the
 people of Oklahoma...

I wanted to pass on  Ree Drummond's post
today that is full of ways to help...

Little acts of kindness can move mountains...

I love custom, I love silhouettes, and I love jewelry...

just perfect for a large gathering...

Every time I am in Europe I love shopping at the flea markets, and have a nice collection of antique crosses and rosaries that I'd like to add this to!

I am obviously a fan of patchwork...
now I just need to learn to knit so that I could make this gorgeous piece for my home ~ It is so pretty!

We always always have something to
be happy about and grateful for!

Time To Play

The weekend is here ...
It's time to play!

It was a LONG week with my son off at a school camp and no PARENT interaction...
(time to cut the strings already at 12???)

I am looking forward to spending some time with BOTH of my boys and enjoying them this weekend, because all of a sudden I see the future coming far too quickly!

I hope you find some playtime over the weekend!
