Act My Age?

When the snowy winter blues hit, I decided to battle them with a happy kind of blue.  Last summer I bought some fun fabrics to add to my stash.  I really didn't have any specific plans for them, but it's hard to pass up a good sale.  :-)   

When I pulled out the kitty fabric as a possibility for this blouse, 
my first thought was, 
"You're 51...... do you really think the bright kitties 
are age appropriate?"  

Fortunately this was followed by the thought,
"Life's too short to care!" 

Which brings me around to my new favorite Anne Taintor magnet.

So I'm chasing rainbows and wearing them too!

A Daily Reminder of Love

Remember the post entitled Summer in My Heart?  
I decided to make a special birthday present for my daughter.  
One that would remind her, that even though we live miles apart, 
my love is always with her.


My little 'Sara Smile' has grown-up to be a beautiful woman, both inside and out.  Her inner strength amazes and inspires me. She has a kind, generous, and creative soul. Her smile is sweet and her laughter contagious.  She brings joy to all those around her.  She is a nurturing Mom who shares a special bond with my wonderful grandson Issac.    

She is, and always will be, 
my sweet and precious friend.  
My Sara Smile!  ♥
