Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.
Life around here today is...
This morning I watched the sunrise from the rocking chair my son made in shop class last year. I love sitting in that chair. He was so proud the day we brought it home.
I painted the headboard we made from an old door and rearranged our master bedroom this week and now waking up is so much fun! Seriously...I love the new arrangement and I get really happy when I wake up and see it. Then my day off to a good start! Goofy, huh? Who knew such a simple change could make such a difference?
3.) Inspired (and a bit wired)
I am so loving my super fabulous new mug from Old Farmhouse Pottery. I love that you can feel the ridges where the artists hands coaxed the clay into shape. That's the thing about hand-thrown vessels: they are utterly unique. There is a downside to using this one, though; I love sipping from this mug so much that my coffee intake has increased! (Thinking of having a cup now.)
Cooler temps = windows and doors wide open. LOVE that!
With so many residents of the east coast without electricity in the aftermath of hurricane Sandy I am very mindful of what a blessing it is to have heat, light and so many other things with just a flip of a switch. Soooo grateful for that and hoping power is restored to everyone very soon.
Beautiful hues of orange are everywhere and I love it! Orange is a very happy color and working with it even makes me feel more creative. I must make something orange this afternoon.
So there you have it...my world as I (choose to) see it today.
Hey, that background is sort-of orange, don't you think?
I hope your eyes are open to the beauty, inspiration, and blessing that is all around you today. Make a list or just tell someone about the good things in your life. Maybe it's a little like rearranging the furniture... a simple change could make a big difference.
Today I'm linking up to the following sites that offer even more encouragement and joyful thoughts for you!
