a while back i bought the book "14.000 things to be happy about" which i have read the first 15 pages of. some of the things the author has listed don´t comply to me, but here are my favorites from pages 1-10:
-waking up early and having breafast together outside
-tender, loving touches
-rearranging the apartment
-the sensuality of a scalp rub
-watering your garden
-thought while ironing
-the little things in life that really make your day go right
-not worrying about having what everyone else has
-wild roses, blush pink and spicily fragrant in the cool of the night
i am hoping this book while boost to see the little things in life!
and i am sure this will trig me to write my own list and hopefully scrapbook it!

the things i made with concrete the other week are placed alittle bit here and there in my backyard.
this bowl i made using a rhubarb leaf holds rocks and shells that we collect.
i placed it on my front steps, but i might move it and use it as a birdbath later.
i made some flat shapes aswell.
this one i made using a baking form and when i had poured the concrete into the mold, i put sea glass ontop.
i use it in one of my flowerbeds as a decoration.
more decorations (the leaf shape was a project from last year that went ehum, not so well!, but i love it anyway!) and a stepping stone i made last year where i put strawberry leafs in the bottom so that it would show up when i turned it up side down.
it is great to have something to put my foot on when i pick the weeds!
these are small roses that i put a stick to and use as both decorations and when a plant need some support.
i made them using a ice cube mold!
these are probably my favorites!
first i wanted to use them as stepping stones, but then i needed something to spice up my herbgarden :)
i also wanted to show you a project that didn´t go exactly the way i wanted.
as i made this pot, i used one larger plastic bowl and a smaller one. well, i got the larger one of when the concrete had dried, the smaller one...not so much :) so i sacrified that smaller plastic bowl and took some plants from the garden and this is what i got!
i love it!
have a wonderful day!
and don´t forget to say hi in the comments, it will make me smile :)
