Today's find.....More on Creative Connection....

I shared last week about connection.... how valuable it can be on this journey..... How I reconnected with Xanthe..... How I felt renewed....inspired... even joy-filled....

It's so valuable to talk with someone who gets you! Don't you think?

The title of last Tuesday's TT post was..... 'something GOOD is about to happen.....' 

This is the feeling I want to take into each day.... just saying it...feels good. In fact, that's why Iposted it on my site. I thought you all might like the ideas as well....

I also have this the words on post-its around our house.... The bathroom mirror, the back door, the fridge.... and honestly it's been TRUE and POWERFUL inspiration.

That was just over a week ago......and Oh my goodness... so much has happened since then.... I can barely believe it.....Talk about falling into place......

So I just wanna ask......

how 'bout it?

Might 'something good is about to happen' be a good way to start your day as well?

Back to Connection

Since sharing my thoughts on connection......it seems I'm not alone.... people NEED connection...... I've had so many emails about this....

Trust me....if you are feeling disconnected...wishing you had someone who gets this.... You are not alone... 

A few nights ago I hosted a Be Still Web Connect.... It was so fun!! Seriously good to see all the lovely names from this community...and read your questions and comments...

Afterward.. more emails saying I feel better... less alone.....now I know I'm not the only one who feels..... fill in the blank....
and so on.....

 

And so.... there's some BIG stuff brewing.... centered around community...connection....and inspired conversation.....

More soon...... I'm so excited to spill the beans..... Seriously... ready to burst.... but not quite yet....

Always love to see you here...

Thank you for sharing your finds.....for being a part of this space...... So grateful.

Here's to a beautiful weekend....

I've gone a little hydrangea crazy.... I bought 4 bouquets....  all different colors.... to play with... one last photo....this one... tinted deep purple with a touch of green... quite lovely....

Oh and the florist tells me.... you can revive a hydrangea.... by putting them into as hot as hot can be tap water..... Who knew?

I tried it..and it worked!!


Love & Gratitude.... ♡

I'm gonna dive right into my uptop find.... My new/old chair!! Oh my gosh.... be still my heart... I found it at Lady of the Lake today!! There it was.... just waiting for me!! gasp.....

Funny story... Bryce was bringing it in.... he says... I feel like I should be hauling this to the trash ... not the house!! Oh boys.... Ugh...

I ran it right up to the north room... Oh my gosh....it did not disappoint. I only had time for a few quick photos... before the connect... But there will be plenty moree with this beauty!! I can't wait to wake up and capture a few shots in the morning light!

My second ff.... the sweet cream and sugar.... found at the hospital gift shop... I've been looking for a white simple-shaped set... This was it!! The cup and saucer is a re-discovery.... one of my Anthro goodies from California...So pretty!!

An Update on John

John is still in the hospital. What they thought was an infection seems to be Graft vs Host. It's a risk after transplant. They started treating him with steroids and the pain has subsided. He's still having nausea and stomach issues. He's scheduled for a scope tomorrow.... and hoping like heck to be home by Sunday.

Please continue to pray for him.......He NEEDS to come home soon!
