Good News in the Mailbox!

I love getting mail and email. Not bills mind you or junk mail, good news that is just for me. Reminds me of my childhood when I'd see that familiar writing on the envelope and immediately knew it was a letter from Grandma or Aunt Joy.

Today my email brought back that wonderful feeling when Elsie over at My Yarn Tales sent this award. Isn't it nice to be thought of as "Creative!?!
"Thank you Elsie!

The Origin of White Spray Paint
My mother was a great proponent of white spray paint and its multiple uses and problem solving qualities in home decor. White spray paint has been an important part of our family's home toolbox for as long as I can remember. She sprayed everything and taught me to do so as well.
The fairy poet takes a sheet of moonbeam, silver white; her ink is dew from daisies sweet, her pen a point of light. ~Joyce Kilmer
Come on in, put on your comfy jammies, prop up your flip-flopped feet, sip your favorite frappe, and sit a spell. - - - His grace is new each morning.

Lake of the Ozarks
"Now you all know that I take way too many flower photos, and it's really hard for me to choose just one favorite. But I have to say that the daisy is one of my favorites for very sentimental reasons. As many of you already know, our Little Red House is my childhood home. When I was little, it was surrounded on three sides by meadows, which were filled with daisies in late spring. One of my fondest memories is of picking armloads of daisies with my mother, to fill her many pitchers around the house. So they really speak to me of warm spring days, filled with sunlight and laughter."
