Celebrate Life



“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate”
Oprah Winfrey

Sky Watch Friday fans like to celebrate the sky in all its different forms. One of my favourites is a morning walks on the beach and watching the sun toss glitter on the water.

Mary Ann of Follow Your Bliss is hosting another ‘Vintage Stocking Swap’. We had the best fun last year meeting other crafters from around the globe, creating the most amazing versions of vintage stockings.

If you would like to join in, you will have to be fast and click here.

MaryAnn's itty bitty ‘Vintage Christmas Book’ club is already filled. Will post some photos of what we are making a bit closer to the season.
To get in the mood, Mandi of Whispering Christmas Dreams is posting a yearly count down blog that is all the more fun when listening to the music out of season.

Oprah has it right--and so do you with this picture!

PJ said...

That's an amazing sky-graph. I guess you can only get a reflection like that in the morning. I wouldn't know because I'm not a morning person and neither is my camera!

Julie said...

This scene represents our country to a T. I bet we could find it dotted around the entire coast - maybe minus a few footprints.

Quite gorgeous, Mandy. Thank you.
