happy friday

it's the simple things in life that matter most & make us happy.

these are some simple things that made me happy this week.

doing most of my christmas shopping very quickly 
without spending a fortune

the idea of giving 
pretty wrapping 
brown paper tied with torn fabric
handmade cards

vintage style letter & number stamps
a treat for myself

a new plant on the deck
mandevilla "aloha" 
i love you

our pink mandevilla that just keeps flowering and looking beautiful with very little care

what makes you happy?

  1. love the wrap Cheryl. I often use brown paper for wrapping then paint stuff on the paper. What makes me happy? Well, seeing Cold Chisel in concert the other night made me really really happy. I'm still happy! have a great weekend. Jane x

  2. australian band from the 80's by the way ; )

  3. I remember Cold Chisel (and Jimmy Barnes)... I was more of a Split Enz (with Neil Finn) myself...

    Love your wrapping ideas and your plants :)

  4. there actually was some good music in the 80's. love the finn brothers.

  5. Lovely wrapping Cheryl, I really do need to take more pride in mine...I love the frangipani that is flowering apparently quite rare, it is a deep red, so beautiful and I grew it from an offcut. OH and the hightides we are getting at the moment, the water we live on always looks so much nicer with a high tide!x

  6. karla..i haven't seen a red frangipani. i have a pink one, not flowering yet. & i agree about the high tides.

  7. these are just fabulous .. love them x

  8. Your blog makes me happy. Always beautiful and inspiring. Leahx

  9. LOVING the luggage tags. I had them as name places at my wedding and still cannot get enough of them. Merry Christmas!! x
