Extraordinary Pleasures

The only difference between an extraordinary life and an ordinary one is the extraordinary pleasures you find in ordinary things.  Veronique Vienne

Thanks to my friends in Sky Watch Friday who have introduced me to what could be an ordinary pleasure of watching the show that nature puts on in our skies and all the fabulous views they share with us from all over the globe.
Another pleasure this week was finding Scrapbook Ideas Magazine at the newsagents and liking the way our submissions came up.
“Winging It” on a hectic weekend full of responsibilities, squeezed in a little creative break....images from Heart Warming Vintage and House of 3, stamps from Tattered Angels

Aren't those colors soothing? My goodness, one could build an entire room around them, but that would detract from the ordinary pleasure of just looking and enjoying...

It's always nice, isn't it, when you like the photography on your projects in the mags. The picture you show here looks beautiful! I might have to go see if I can track down a copy of the magazine.
