Making Wishes Come True

"We all have our own life to pursue, our own kind of dream to be weaving. And we all have some power to make wishes come true, as long as we keep believing."  Louisa May Alcott

Happy Sky Watch Friday everyone. This picture is from Chicago airport full of people scurrying off to someplace at the end of the hall is a great big metal globe that reminded me how small the world is some days. For the last few weeks I have been mostly viewing the sky from inside airports and buildings. Click the link to see what bloggers from all over have found in their skies this week.
Added a tutorial to the Helmar site this week on making shabby chic flowers to quick and easy way. And speaking of shabby chic, I was lucky enough to spend some time with Melissa Frances at the CHA in Chicago. It was really nice to see her looking well and telling the story behind her new range of papers called 5th Avenue. Loving these pretty shades and can't wait till they ship down under to Australia.

I love Louisa May Alcott :o)

O'Hare is quite an impressive place, isn't it? So bright and airy despite being so huge!!!

I know this 'scene' well [lived there 16 years] but you have really made it even more interesting.
p.s. Louisa has been my lifelong hero!
Happy Skywatch Friday, Mandy!

This hall looks so narrow. But all that sunlight sure brightens up the whole place. I love ceilings like these.
