Happy Things!

It doesn't take much to make me happy, and today has been a banner day for it. My daughter and I went shopping this morning at TKMaxx (TJMaxx for US readers) and I found three items from my favourite artist!


Two sets of note cards and an address book by Josh Agle (Shag)! In the bargain section, too. You'll be happy to know that I didn't embarrass my daughter by squealing.


And when we came home, we discovered that our fat, lazy Wyandotte Alice had finally laid an egg. It was laid in the run instead of the nest box. She really is that fat and lazy. :)

Good for you a nice fresh egg from your lovely hen! Got to say it again, maybe someday me too I'll have hens!

Lavandine, I do hope you're able to get hens. They are great pets.

Hi Elizabeth ,
very cute things you have found.
It always makes me happy to find some old beautyful things , maybe for free , that`s why I love bulky refuse (In Germany old furniture and other nice things can be placed at the streets for communal refuse at several times a year)...
Btw , you have been tagged ...
Please visit my blog ,
kind regards, and have fun ,
Ulrike .

How wonderful about both your JKMaxx find and the egg from Alice! :) We would all be so much happier if we would just cherish the little things in life.

Ulli, thank you for thinking of me! I look forward to participating as soon as I have a bit more time.

Welcome back, Teresa! I hope you had a good break.
