My Happy List: Faces & Places

Finding a large milk glass type vase for 49 cents at a garage sale made me happy.



When I visited my friend Anita's home in Charlotte, I saw this print on her bedroom wall of the Village Wedding by Luke Fildes. I have always loved this painting and have often thought about including it somewhere in our home too.


Funky art, like this one I saw at the Art Bank on Indy's Mass Ave., makes me happy!


Painting this brass piece I found for $2.50 at an antique shop and having it hanging in the kitchen makes me happy. (I have another post with more painting I've done to show you soon!)


And finally, receiving mail from my sweet little grandson in California makes me so VERY happy!


What's on your happy list this week?

  1. Patty, When you painted the brass piece , that made me think I have an old brass pitcher I should paint. If I paint it I will post a photo. xoxo,Susie

  4. What's making me HAPPY? TIME

    The entire month of May I worked on my house for my little reunion and in my creative space making decorations for the baby shower. This month is mine and I am taking time to get projects done, slowly.

  6. Those are some fun finds! What's on my happy list? Wow...so many things...but, mainly, my upcoming three week road trip. We're getting ready to pack up to leave. I'm having a lot of fun planing and packing all the knit and crochet projects I'm taking. :-)
