B e a u t i f u l s !
How are you on this Saturday?
It’s been a week.
The BIG GAME did not disappoint. While the boys put the cap on the season, eight inches of snow fell.
Some weeks are more challenging than others. This week fit clearly into the challenging and frustrating category at work.
I feel blessed to have my family, friends, my styling a collection of a lifetime project and this creative outlet to divert my attention . We had a little a saying around here when the kids were growing up . . . “It’s not all lollipops and gumdrops!” . . . the words always drew a smile, and made me think of Sammy Davis Jr singing “Candy Man”.
“Who can take tomorrow, dip it in a dream
Separate the sorrow and collect up all the cream
The Candy Man, the Candy Man can”
I actually sat in the third row at Harrah’s in Tahoe and watched him sing it when I was 19. The rest of the words are here.
Inspired as I write . . . ( often my posts transition from planned into random.)
I’ll ask “Alexa” to play it when the “Grands” sleep over in March.
(I know they will love it!)
There is always candy (and ice cream) at Grandma’s house.
. . . speaking of candy.
The sweetness of blogging is its perpetual gifting of guilt free eye candy!
I found this week’s “shelfie” inspiration on “The White Farmhouse Blog“. Morgan’s blog reveals fresh look into an old farmhouse. Modern . . . rustic . . . slightly Boho.
Jumping off the shelf . . .
. . . to take you for a peek at her bathroom vanity.
I HAVE FELT THE URGE TO “SKIRT” SOMETHING since I began blogging, six years ago! I have a Pinterest board titled “Skirting The Issue“. I’ll keep you posted.
Have a great week!
Happy Valentines Day!
“The Candy Man makes everything he bakes satisfying and delicious
Talk about your childhood wishes, you can even eat the dishes!”
I remember the song “candy man.” I think your grandkids would love it, Lynne.
Happy Valentine’s Day to my sweet blog friend.
The BIG GAME did not disappoint one bit here either.
LOVE your shelfie posts, and this one’s gorgeous.
Echoing Judith’s PS here. I’m experiencing some tech issues with WP and my domain is nowhere to be found. I wrote and I’m waiting for a response. In the meantime, you might not reach my site, but I’ll definitely update you as soon as I hear from them so you can update your blogroll …which I too am honored to be a part of.
Happy Valentine’s Day.
Everything back up and running. Woo-hoo! Every time I’m tempted to move back to blogger I consider the excellent service WP provides. All is well at an inspired PHOTOJOURNAL.
Great eye candy on your Saturday shelfie for sure… Thanks for the treats.
P.S. Botanic Bleu has a new address—- http://www.botanicbleu.com
You may want to update your sidebar links to Botanic Bleu. 🙂 Thanks for honoring me by including Botanic Bleu in your blogrolls.
Happy Valentine’s Day
