Oh friends, my heart is heavy today. There is so much that goes on in the "grown up" world that you could never even imagine as a child, or even in high school or college ... and I think all of that is hitting me now. We humans sure do complicate things don't we? Ah, but it's nothing that Jesus is not in control of or cannot fix.

To get my mind off of things, I thought I'd show you my latest bargain... this piece of wall art from Target. It looks a lot like antique typesetter letters! I bought two of them for our house for... drum roll please... $3 each! New. From Target. Yay! They were in the clearance isle, and we had quite the time getting them to ring up correctly (I think I returned and purchase them about three times while I was there while the cashier and I were trying to get the correct price to ring up), but they were well worth it.

I also bought some paperwhite bulbs to plant in my antique Belgian pitch pots (photos coming soon) and I think it all looks good together with my mini orchid and a ceramic alphabet ball thrown in for good measure (Michael's dollar bin).

Nothing lifts my spirits like a little vignette creating : )

I hope your day is happier than mine and your weather is better too ... cold and rainy here in Wichita, although I guess it's fitting for today.

Man, am I a downer or what?! : )

Have a great weekend!

{live beautifully}
