awe… Anybody out there feel like they need a big ol’ bear hug today?
Well here’s hoping this cute poem inspired by the whimsical ceramic
artistry of Belén Soto will brighten somebody’s day, today! 😍😘☺️ ♥ Jackie
there is a family of simple bears
who live in a humble forest lair
they are a lively and happy lot
with elegant manners taught
flowers, ties and grace at every meal
is the family dining deal
fetch yourself some tasty grog
and have a seat on the family log
oodles of berries and honey
more bountiful than funny money
so yummy it makes your tummy tingle
transforming food into comic jingles
come join our family fray
with laughter and lively play
no worries for this crew
we live each day brand new
Here’s a shout out to kids, bears, fun and the simple joys of life. Once again the playful ceramics of Belén Soto inspired me to have fun with my poetry. I hope you enjoy her delightful bears and other creative creatures on her website.
I totally ❤ purple!!!
But how much do I love yarn?
At first glance, this snowful foliage photo by Paul Militaru looked to me like a sparkling skein of yarn! I’m still LoL-ing about that, since Paul’s portfolio is primarily places and scenic spaces! … hmmm … Could this be a sign that I am simply “snow tired” ?!? 😉 ♥ Jackie
Dressing up for Halloween this weekend?
. . . but THEN what’ll you wear?!?
Check out these fashion photos for spring/summer 2016!
Lots of crafty flair for stylish needlework creativity here…

I’m always on the look out for the latest fashion with a touch of handcrafted goodness. Fashion week in London, New York and Paris (about 3-5 weeks ago) did not disappoint me! There were MANY outfits with knitted detail, crocheted touches and free style embroidery to drool over. Here are a few of my favourite outfits (with some notes on what caught my eye) by some pretty famous designers for Spring/Summer 2016.
Have a fantastic weekend!
