Some "joy" to balance some of my recent complaints:
These tea towels from Amelia make use of some delightful artwork
by Holy Angels artists Molly and Sharon W.!
I love looking at them!
They lift my spirits. :)
What was left of the baked delights from Erin and crew
after Fee and I made our first few helpings!
Some wonderful incoming mail!
from Teresa and Ricky
Ricky made the heart from a horseshoe and the postcard is from
one of Carolyn Dorman's drawings of wildflowers.
Carolyn Dorman dedicated her life to the preservation of native ecosystems.
The Carolyn Dorman Nature Preserve continues her mission.
Here is an interesting post about "Carrie" Dorman, her work, and legacy on Teresa's blog!
Thank you, Ricky and Teresa! I love the heart and the card!
The promise of daylilies!
This fan letter from a child to James Preller and his always thoughtful reply. It is so generous of authors to reply to fan mail, and James Preller's replies make me happy.
Cartoons on stamps appeal to my sense of whimsy. I have several 32 c stamps depicting characters from old comic strips that I love. Recently, however, this article gives some examples of Royal Mail takes on cartoons.
This stamp hits very close to home!
(Oh, yes, I plan to write a letter to an anonymous person
which will include a "to do" list of household chores.)
So...how about your "joy to complaint" ratio?
