Hi hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Here the weather has been spectacular, a perfect “10” and then with my son home it’s been nothing less than perfection!? We are invited aboard a friends beautiful 50 foot sailboat, what a perfect day for it. It’s about spending family time? this weekend with our son and later we plan to take him into the city to his favorite Italian restaurant and enjoy the city, something we don’t do as often as we should. This is fall at it’s absolute best.? Time for my seven on Sunday, seven things that have caught my attention. Ready to begin? Here we go…… 1. My talented readers One of my readers, Gail was so inspired by my party post last week that she was inspired to paint one of the pictures of my flowers in their blue and white vases and imagine that she did this in ONE day. I just cannot imagine having that kind of natural raw talent then being able to turn it around in less than 12 hours…crazy!It is so beautiful I just had to share (with her permission of course)! If you are interested in seeing more of Gail’s work, here is her website- Gailelizabethmorrisart.com. 2. My fabulous new doggie pillows Just added these to the shop, they are just sooo charming and precious. Talk about a stylish way to honor your favorite breed! You know which one I chose:)?

Seeing my gorgeous blue and white ginger jars at one fabulous wedding I had such fun? helping a special customer with ginger jars for her daughters wedding. I won’t give out too many details as I hope to feature much more on this special wedding in the future but here’s? a sneak peek during the “set up” , how spectacular is this! 4. A heartwarming video and a beautiful message I had to share this with you….it is just so beautiful. It will move, inspire and touch you, I promise you. You will need a tissue or two but you will be so happy you saw this, I promise that too. PLEASE take two minutes out? of your day to watch it. It’s a commercial for of all things, a Thai life insurance company (go figure) but the message is so amazing and this is so incredibly well done. The first time I saw this I had to see it three times (and I have since watched it at least 10 times)…..it has moved me as powerfully as the first time I saw it.? You just know there are plenty of unsung heroes just like this doing every day small gestures not for the accolades but just because they know its the right thing to do and? because it makes them feel good. This makes me believe that the world is a good place after all and really restores my faith at a time when it is easy to question it. I am sharing it because I want as many people as possible to see it.? I sent it to? my three kids, and hope if you deem it worthy you too will pass it along to all those you care to share it with….. 5. A FAVORITE NEW NAIL POLISH COLOR I get excited over things like a new nail polish color….see even small things can make me happy. I am in love with this color and it’s pretty much the only color I have had on my toes and nails for the summer and its a great color into the fall, Urban Jungle by Essie. 6. How’s your vocabulary? Consider yourself to have a good mastery of the English language? Well there’s always room for a bit of improvement, would you agree? Here is a nifty little chart on words to use more often. I think I may just print this out and keep it handy,.? A flawless, delightful list to contemplate and embrace….just swell! There I used five in one sentence:) 7. ONE BIZARRE NEWS STORY To? some I am known as a news junkie but have to admit lately I have been turning it off more and more, it’s just so depressing and then you have to succumb to the media’s field day at painting this doomsday scenario and I just don’t want to partake in it. I let my husband (yes the same flower whisperer is also the political whisperer tell me what’s REALLY going on but to his credit his conspiracy theories often prove to be right on the money, he is a better political forecaster than he is flower whisperer, I will give him that:) But one story that I know little to nothing about that just doesn’t seem to want to go away and that seems like its going on F O R E V E R is this Phil Spector story…the bizarre man that he is. I got a glimpse of him and had? to seriously do a doubletake, as? the image literally kept me up at night. Then I thought about how hard it must have been for the judge and jury to have kept from laughing out loud at the spectacle before them…..were they looking at Phil Spector or a live chia pet gone wild? I will let you decide, bear in mind? this is a real live shot from him sitting in court…. And then check out Al Pacino who will be playing Phil in an upcoming movie for HBO, safe to say he got the hair right……ladies eat your heart out! Always good to end on a lighthearted and funny note. Anything here appeal to you or tickle your fancy besides Phil’s hair that is? Thank you as always for stopping in. Wishing you a great day and end to your weekend!
