Small Pleasures

“Sometimes it is the smallish things that take up the most room in our heart” from Winnie the Pooh

While searching for some magical view of the sky on and average kind of day, I spied across the mud flats a big wet heart draining into the tide. Knowing lots of bloggers enjoy these rare sights in nature just had to share along with a quote from Winnie the Pooh to match.
Have a great weekend everyone full of simple quiet moments enjoying the view and checking Sky Watch Friday to see what other bloggers from all over have found in their skies this week.
My latest ruffled and beribboned creation using Tattered Angels paints on fabric.
For my friends from the Beach Cottage Saturday Club, my fabulous scents were found in the Botanical range from Bittersweet and a little Kiwi twist from the Australian Yankee Candle shop. 

Just found this link to random hearts celebrating nature's heartfelt views and off to see what they have going on there and this stamp is just too cute to not include in our heartfelt post.

"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time.
We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek."  Barack Obama
A pretty view from an early morning beach walk to celebrate SkyWatch Friday !
Thank you to my blogging friends who pointed out that Gandhi said something similar in "be the change you want to see in the world". The reason why I always look out for good quotes is because - there are lots of them to choose from and sometimes they kind of sound the same.  

This week's creation is a submission to Altered Pages Spring Hats competition.

Found this quote and it made me smile, a good one to ponder while walking along our local beach framed with Casuarina trees. Perfect for  sharing with Sky Watch Friday fans.

Just had to share this one - love that attitude !
Linked to Sarah's Good Life Wednesday for little peeks into other good things on any day of the week.

Saw these colorful flowers over on Maya's Completely Coastal and adding the link to fun and easy creations.

Click the link to Sky Watch Friday to see what 100s of bloggers from all over the world have found in their sky to share this week. A quick pic from an evening stroll. Views like this remind me how lucky we are to live in this area. 
Linked to Sarah's Good Life Wednesday for little peeks into other good things. Found the cutest little spring themed give away on Bittersweet's blog.

Happy Sky Watch Friday everyone, check the link to see what bloggers from all over the world have found in their sky to share with us.  This week I spied this glorious evening sky from the parking lot and just had to stop for a moment to appreciate the colour.
Also check links to Sarah’s Good Life Wednesday,  my photo was from Wednesday funny enough. Am pretty sure that there are fabulous skies to be spied most any day of the week from any random parking lot. 

Starting the weekend off on the right foot with fun new paints.
