Relax!

Relax!

Summer is winding down, and we’re looking at the last hurrah!

I’m looking forward to dealing with some UFOs (unfinished objects!) at the lake – I just pulled up the extended weather forecast and its mostly sunny and 70s!

I had to share some beautiful packaging with you! I was the lucky winner of Sandra Everston’s drawing and the other day this precious bisque (I think) doll head arrived!

She was packed carefully in deckle-edged paper bits from a French dictionary.

The box had lovely papers – stripes, dictionary, collaged – on all sides! I told Sandra the packaging was as lovely as the prize! Thank you!

Also thanks for the many kind comments about my aunt, Iris, both on-blog and off. They are so very much appreciated!

I just noticed my August calendar page, which includes quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh with some lovely illustrations featured an illustration of an iris.

I leave you with the quote for the month:

Breathing in
I dwell in the present moment.
Breathing out,
I feel it is a wonderful moment
.

Wishing you many wonderful moments this weekend.
