These are a few of the treasures I'm feasting my eyes on today:

This little shelf, which belonged to my paternal grandmother. I treasure it for that reason alone. The fact that I have it filled with more little treasures is just a bonus.

These little beauties belonged to my maternal grandmother. Aren't they sweet?

Freshly cut flowers on the dining room table,

Flowers growing in the hot summer sun (I can actually see these from my sewing room window),

From my sewing room window I can also see this little lady who is getting fat while helping to rid the chicken yard of those pesky flies. Good job, spider! And she has very wisely positioned herself over a little flower bed where she runs no risk of interfering with humans. Yay!!

Chickens cooling themselves in the shade of the fig tree. I am well aware that they are wreaking havoc on parts of the back yard, but I just cannot bear to keep them cooped up in their yard on hot days like this. They have SO much fun rampaging around in the freedom.

And of course, Miss Chloe. She can find MORE things to do than anyone I know, and everything is interesting to her. I just have fun watching her.

I think that's what we all need to cultivate in ourselves - that sense of wonder at every new thing we see and enjoy. God has given us a beautiful world! Enjoy it.

Hugs and kisses,

Lovely treasures on the shelf; I've always admired that style--perfect for the figurines. And spiders...YUCK!

I just love little figurines of days gone by. You are so lucky to have them. Loved all of your pics. Don't you wish kittens...remained kittens? I just adore their antics. blessings,Kathleen
