  1. Your knick-knacks (the 3 in the back) suddenly made me want to listen to Bette Middler singing Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy!

    Love your collection of 12 things and your inspiration (what a cutie-pie!).

  5. I'm inspired to start journaling - Am I the only last person to do this? I make lists and jot notes, but I don't keep them, or journal on a regular basis. Love seeing the inspiration in your items, but I don't believe all of those spools of thread are new - heee heee!! You saved the best for last though, and I am reminded of always trying to be better myself when I see or hear things my daughter is doing with my granddaughters........ I must have done something right along the way.
