appreciating...


After reading Susan's post I felt like my weekend was about appreciating a few extra moments of laying around. In fact my biggest accomplishment was getting out to buy new pillows to sleep in on Sunday (my neck has been out for a week because of sleeping on way too old pillows). But then today I looked at the "nest " I'd made for myself and thought the blanket and pillow were made my my grandmothers and are really quite artistic...and the books I've been browsing- well 2 are art books and there is an art to cooking and gardening and the kids book has got great illustrations...so thanks Susan for giving me a different perspective on my otherwise low key weekend :)

sometimes it's nice to be lazy and just lay around!
(and you're always so busy, so you have earned yourself some "nest time"!) ;)

I love the pillow with the flower stitching!

Appreciating books definitely counts as appreciating other people's art! Sounds like you had a nice, cozy weekend. I feel stuck home with the snow this weekend, and I have surrounded myself with books too! And thanks for the pillow picture. It's lovely.
