Stop and Think

Have you noticed lately that you have no time to think. I mean really think about things. Do you run from one thing to the next and then to the next without really stopping and thinking? I do.

I love this picture by English artist Philip Wilson Steer (1860-1942). To me the young woman looks like she is really thinking. Maybe she is thinking about how she wants her life to look and how to get there. Perhaps she is praying and has taken the time to stop and think about exactly what she should be praying about. Or maybe she is simply thinking what a beautiful day it is.

The purpose of this post is to remind myself and others that we really do need to take the time to stop and think. It will be time well spent.

Paris Market

The 1st Paris Street Market of 2009 was a huge success. Thank you to all who came out and braved the cold temperatures. Below are pictures of some of my latest decoupage creations. They were gone by the end of day.

Pretty Little Journals

Some gifts for Mother's Day, a large mixed media canvas with a French print, an oval rose box, a lavender filled heart-shaped sachet, a pretty little journal I call "Love Story" and a small box with a Robin's eggs in a nest.

Tulip Cachepot

This yellow cachepot with pink tulips is one of my favorite redesigned items. It was the second sale of the day.

Thank you again and the next Market is June 6th.
