...because you could lose what you already have...and then where would you be?
This is on my refrigerator...words to live by?
My gosh...I think I am being punished! :) Have you ever felt like you've brought something on yourself...by wishing for something you simply cannot have..and then..what you do have is suddenly taken away?? Ok...well..I won't go into that too deeply...but let's just start with my camera...
Yes...my camera. I have been not so appreciative of the one I have..and longing for a new one like Di's at SNAPPY FINGER...and now it won't work. Sweetie Pie is in Maine and won't be home until next week..so...NO CAMERA. I should have appreciated what I had!!
In the meantime..I'll start sanding those stools. Lots of wonderful advice from Lucy @ ENGLISH COTTAGE IN GEORGIA and others who were kind enough to help me. It's getting on with the task that is the problem! I am a procrastinator!
What would I do without my can of red spray paint! It's the little things..isn't it? :)
I collect red Mosser glass... The deep red and the cherries always catch my eye. I should save this for Ruby Tuesday...shouldn't I..ah well..
I buy usually from our blogging artists and seamstresses...and this little pillow with the wheel barrow was made by Becky at Sweet Cottage Dreams. The other items were from other artists on ebay.
This canaster set is very old. I bought it at Sears probably 30 years ago..packed it away, thought I had sold it at a garage sale...and found it later in a box. I was DELIGHTED! When you think you have lost something ..and find you still have it...ANOTHER good feeling! :)
I keep seeing new canister sets...cute ones with Roosters! You KNOW how I love Roosters...but...I have decided to be grateful for this set. It is, after all, RED!
I need to learn to be grateful for all my blessings and not always reaching for the better this or better that.
I will go paint now and stop wishing for more STUFF! I am already a lucky woman. I MEAN I DO HAVE ALL OF YOU AFTER ALL! ~smile~ And my camera WILL get fixed!
Hugs and love,
