Share the Joy Thursday–Cozy At Home Joy

From this week’s Joy List :

Little porcelain boxes that I have decorated and filled with a tiny “shh…” rock and left as anonymous gifts as I went about my errands around town.

New hair do that frames my face and the sweet time I had with my hairdresser, Deb as we made me pretty.

Christmas shopping done. And one gift in particular that I am thrilled with giving to a certain 21 year old niece of mine.

A day for stitching and card writing today.

A day for baking tomorrow.

The anticipation of some sweet family holiday time and Christmas morning with some of my favorite kiddos.

Life definitely has its fair share of joy, even in the face of many sorrows. It is our work here to focus on it and celebrate it !

Enjoy your day, Beautiful Ones !

I love the new "do" and I love the joy -- I wrote about joy today too..it's in the air. I love the free rocks you left and how you wrapped them...I love the thought that someone who really needed a gift will find one of these packages wrapped with love. It is what makes you who you are you sweet beautiful you!!! xoxox

The new "do" is very fetching -- a perfect cut for a beautiful woman and super spirit. You're so busy and creative! I've been OCD with Polyvore, have gotten two chapters finished this month (after at least a month of wringing my hands and sitting before the keyboard, not feeling it come together) -- but I still manage to work in naps whenever the mood strikes. . . usually when I'm bored with sitting at the computer without anything to show for it.

Sometimes I want to be an 'American' just so that I can wear 'cowgirl boots' not the same over here! Still if I ever cross the water, I'm heading straight for the cowgirl boot shop, then off to look for one of your little rock thingies :~)xxx

ArtGirl said...

what a cool idea to leave the boxes with the shhh... rocks around town! that is so creative and thoughtful and a positive pay-it-forward action to do. that's inspiring!
