Happy, happy, happy

Kate from Foxs Lane suggested we tell the world our reasons for happiness today. 

I have to say my number one happiness today was learning how to crochet ric-rac which I learned from Kate's very own tutorial. It is so simple. I've made it using some thrifted cotton I picked up last week.

And can you beat these gorgeous cushions at only a dollar each. I didn't even know their price but I knew they were mine as soon as I saw them.
So creamy and rich in their crochet.
They are dfinitely keepers.

I am also very happy that we can get secondhand clothing here so cheaply. Many ideas here for me, my daughter and friends.
And I am happy for the lovely small circular cloth my friend dropped on my lap this morning.

And above all I am happy for having such wonderful company to enjoy every Friday morning.
Such great friends whose company inspires with it's intellectual, spiritual or trivial content depending on our joint moods. 
I never fail to have been lifted emotionally when I part from them.


  1. Hooray! Your ric rac photo has made me so happy right now. I am so excited that you are making it and I can't wait to see how you use it to embelish your gorgeous creations. I love the cushions, the fabric and the friends too. Have a happy and fun weekend and thanks so much for sharing the happiness. X

    I too suffer from depression and my crafting helps a lot.
