happy hunting

Life can get in the way of happiness and there is nothing like Summer to remind us to generally have more fun. Put this on your list if you have not read it.Things like getting more sleep, adding happy colors to life and spending time outside, make me happy.
Tell me what sorts of things or projects make you happy? Hope your weekend is full of happy hunting! I am heading outside for tennis and some gardening today.

ten demerits to me for not saving the credits for the two photos. I would be a heck of a lot happier if I knew if I could hunt the sources. Please chime in if you know. I apologize if they belong to you....they just make me so darn happy.

I love thrifting for things I know I don't need :) and I'll have to check out your book selection since I have a 40 off for Borders,

You are right. This is the perfect season to slow down and be reminded about what makes us happy. Spending time with my family sans hectic schedules makes me happy. Enjoy the garden.

Oh, I am very easy to please: color and pattern, with a bit of texture, if available, make me sing with joy.

PVE,

Making time to get some things done and getting done ahead of schedule.
It is a magical feeling.

Hi PVE,

I am kind of new on blogger and few days ago I came across your blog. I love art, so everything which has something to do with it makes me happy. So as your site.;) Be fine and enjoy your day.

Oh my dear! Tennis in this heat? You are going to feel wonderful & wiped out, I think. Make sure you drink lots of water! It is such a beautiful (hot) summer day.
Best,
Colleen

Thank you for the book recommendation! As you know, I just painted my new bedroom bright pink so color is definitely a source of happiness. Have a great week!

I love this and am going to look for that book! Things that make me happy? Organizing, getting a good work out and ooking a healthy meal all make me happy.

Dining and sitting rooms, so pretty, certainly cheers up a drab winter's day!

It sounds a little strange, but I bought a last minute airplane ticket at astronomical price to go to my oldest and dearest friend's sister's funeral. I had just been home, but I returned to be with a family I dearly loved growing up. All the friend's came and we all remembered our happy days with this great family. Nancy's high school friend's made an i book to remember her and it was a really sweet gift to these wonderful people.

Hello Patricia,
Love the pink rooms and the settee.
Gretchen's blog is one of my virtual daily reads.
Here's hoping the bluebird flies to your home, too.
