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.

Lovely sky, and amazing heart-lake. I'm pleasantly surprised at how often that shape shows up in nature.
