Happiness Is...

1. Having a professional gardener to take good care of your garden:







The other day, as I was getting ready to water the plants, Jason said: " I want to do it, mommy", so I said, " go ahead, you can do it". He was so happy, and he really did a great job!


2. Finding the metal dress form I've been looking all over the place for!







Actually, I had seen another one at TJ Maxx about a couple of weeks ago. My friend, Gloria, told me to buy it, but I said I wasn't. Needless to say, I went back a few days later, and surprise!, it was gone. I went on a hunting mission to no avail, no dress form!. Then yesterday, I went to Marshall's and as soon as I spotted it, I made a mad rush toward it! God forbid somebody else was eyeing too!. They had it hanging from a hook, the form wouldn't separate from it without a fight, but alas, it was free at last!
My plan is to hang tags and small collages on it.


3. Receiving my beautiful screen from the Birds and Bonnets Vintage Workshop swap





These panels are truly beautiful works of art. I don't know how Karla and Beth pulled it off but they did a fabulous job at setting these up and and sending them off. Thank you ladies!

What an adorable gardener you have! So cute! Love the panels you received, they are just beautiful! I am looking for a wire dress form also but have not found the right size, I am actually contemplating making my own version. I have an idea so we will see.
