Happy Monday! Yahoo for the US presidents and a day off for me! Bill's home, too. (happy face!)
Remember I was in the mood for collages in my journal? Well, instead I used the big display board I had in the trunk of my car and made a HUGE journal page.
First, I covered the board with happy scrapbook stack paper.
Then, I glued all kinds of pictures on it. See Jenny the bride? I found it on Bill's computer.
I had a pile of magazines and books nearby, for inspiration.
I had a cup of tea and a tiny orange at the ready.
It is FUN to arrange all the images of sweetness.
Can you spy Pom Pom up at the top of the photo above?
I used sheets and sheets of stickers! I love to stick! I used pretty big nails and hung this happy masterpiece on our bedroom wall. It reminded me of my room at home when I was a teenager. I loved to plaster things all over the walls.
Our new blinds came today. The twenty year old blinds (VERY dusty) broke and I don't like sitting in front of the living room window at night when everyone can see in. I am in front of students all day and that's about all my private side can handle, so by nighttime I need window coverings! They look good. I'm so thankful.
When I was shopping for stickers, I found two cute gnomes. Look what this one is holding! Doesn't he look sweet with Lynn's toadstool house? Happy!
Can you see the other gnome? These are my new bookends. I had my Gladys Taber books in a tall (more dust!) stack on my night table. I figured they needed a more honored spot in our house. I may need to make little cushions for the bookend chairs, but I really like having a fancy set of bookends.
In an additional act of "pretty stuff greediness" I bought a stack of lovely magazines. WHAT a day off! Glorious!
It's very cold but the sky is blue. Thank you!
Tomorrow we have meetings all day at school. The kids get to stay home. I have swept, mopped, dusted, arranged, washed tablecloths and played. My sweet husband is home from far away. Bliss.
So here we go, friends. We're headed toward the green smell of springtime. Soon we'll all be digging and tilling up the dirt. Tina (The Quiet Home) said that in Scotland they say that March can come in like a lamb and GO OUT like a lion! Ha ha! We'll see.
The bunny stuff is filling the seasonal aisle at the grocery store, so Easter's coming.
Bless your heart today. Thank you for coming by for a visit. (HUG!)
