They look so pretty all year long with my cottage style decor, and in the winter they remind me of beach days. I keep a lot of the ones I find on the beach, in a bag in a closet, and when I am really suffering from the winter doldrums I pull it out and sort through them. I love how they feel and smell and yes, I listen to the sound of the ocean in the conch shells.
I now have a somewhat new obsession. I have started to look for feathers.
I think I must be just like a little kid when I find a new feather. I wish I knew what birds they came from. I guess one of these days I will have to take the time to research them.
Look what I found in my mailbox yesterday.
An amazing needle felted nest with eggs from my wonderful daughter Katy of Winsome Hollow. I love it. It is so perfect with my feathers.
The things we find and love really contribute to a simple life. No matter what they are, if they give you pleasure they are going to add to your serenity. Do you have things that give you simple pleasure?
Tomorrow, Tuesday, is the first "Women Speak" forum. I am so excited about it. The topic was suggested by one of my readers. What do you do when you find yourself suddenly single. I know we are going to have a great conversation and I hope you will invite your women friends and readers.
See you tomorrow.
