happy things.

here's my monday morning list...

1. baskets

they make me happy. i think its the whole "organizing" thing - they make me "feel" more organized, even if stuff is just thrown in them. it always amazes me that you can find baskets which are sooo expensive, then you walk into Michaels or Ikea, and find the same thing for waaaay less. a good bargain basket is a true happy thing!

2. the Charlie Rose show.

seriously, it's one of my favorite things to watch. i swear its addictive. the nightly pbs interview show is the main reason i'm up past 11pm most nights during the week. charlie rose is awesome and i always feel more intelligent after watching.
if you've never watched, check it out. whether he's talking about the blind side or the iraq war - he never disappoints.

3. sleeping boys.
now this really makes me happy. there is just something about sleeping children - especially these :)

what makes you happy?

I love baskets too. Every kind I can get my hand on :)
ANd the pic of your boys sleeping is ADORABLE.

Pretty flowers outside my house, when my hardwood floors are clean, memories of my brother, the off the wall things a 3 year old says, and being caught up, LOL-HA! make me happy :)

Baskets are nice, but I have an affinity for jars. I love to have my craft supplies, like buttons and brads, ribbon and flowers in clear jars. I have old canning jars, and jars that had peanuts in them, some that are just decorative and some that are meant for this purpose. I love them.
My 'wall of fame' also makes me happy. I have pictures of those special people in my life on my walls in my office. There isn't a lot of wall space, as there are lots of windows, so I have the pictures in all the small nooks and above the windows.
Sunny, blue skys and warm weather make me happy and seeing my kids going off to do things together, they are 20 and 17, this really makes me smile.
Those are a few of the things that make me happy!

Happy for me = a clean kitchen sink. Vintage linens. Handwritten letters from my grandmother. My son whispering he loves me forever. My daughter wearing my high heels, and winning your contest! ;)
