Friday Favorite Things

friday favorite things | finding joy
These are a few of my favorite things this week

After the rain
There is always a silver lining

Sunny end of a rainy day
Lavender Pansies loving the sun

Orange and yellow faces lifted to the sun

Each week, Hilary at Feeling Beachie lists four statements with a blank for you to fill in on your own blogs. If you want to join the fun and come up with four fill in’s of your own, please email them to her at If she uses them, she will add you as co-host to the hop! 

This week’s statements:
1.       I love _a large hot latte_ when I need a pick me up. Smelling the enticing aroma, and tasting the rich flavor, just makes me feel so much better.
2.       No matter how hard I try, I just can’t _figure out how to tat. So I will just have to get over it.  I can do all other sort of things, so I guess that I'm not a complete failure.
3.       Little puppies and grandkids hugs_ make me feel all warm and fuzzy
4.       I can’t resist a sale on _art supplies.  I can always us a new brush or fancy patterned paper.  Soon I am going to have to build a second story on my studio.


  1. Oh, I hear you on the art supplies on sale! I have boxes of paper scrapping materials that I'll have to figure out what I'll do with in my cleaning project. I still have a few pages to finish in my last paper book before I started digital (July of 2006 pages to do) So for another maybe 10 pages I'll still use it, bu6 then I need to work on figuring out what I'll keep for crafts and what will get bundled for sale or charity.

    There is nothing like a coffee shop latte to both calm you and pick you up!

  2. Great Photos and I love the look after a rain as well. I'm lovin the warm temps we are getting right now however. I have flowers blooming in NH in March!!! Lattes sure are good.

  3. Love the pictures you shared, Marti! Rain is predicted for our area later today and I'm so ready for it! I love a good thunderstorm! Hope your weekend is a good one!

  4. I love your photos! The flowers are so pretty and I love seeing water drops on leaves.

  5. Marti- What great photos. I am doing a post on the stuff you sent either this weekend or the first of the week....crazy around here trying to get ready for a memorial service for our friend- xo Diana

  6. Those pansies are so sweet - what a cheerful little flower. I'd say that tatting escapes many of us, so at least you're not alone. :-)

  7. I Love the pictures --- although I love flowers I think the one of the sky is my favorite!
    Have a great weekend

  8. Great post, Lovely blog! I'm a new follower!
