i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)
i am never without it (anywhere i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you.
here is the deepest secret nobody knows (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

Off to do a few loads of laundry, and create. This time I hope to use some of my Hambly Limited Edition collection. Beauty. Ah, Hambly, did I mention how much I love you too! O I do. Lots.

The finished product, garnished with wedges of lemon lime, cilantro and crushed peanuts:
Delish! This is my most favorite kind of dinner. Esay, and oh-so-yumm-o!!
Off to read some art magazines, with a cup of coffee and enjoy the silence. Oh silence how I miss you.
Happy Saturday everyone!

It was this piece by AMY POWERS that inspired me many months ago, and has inspired me yet again to pick up my hoop, canvas, and threads...
Ok, how adorable is the Marie Antoinette image?? and that mushroom?? ok and that sheep?? Love love love.
Isn't it the cutest thing ever? It just makes me want to smile.
Yup, I'm going to give it a try. I have all the goods ready... I may start today, but I'll follow along at my own pace, don't think I can manage one a day... despite the small size. Perhaps before bed would be a good time to do this. We'll see...
If you wish to follow along, if you go to my sidebar you'll see the 'i'm stitchingalong' badge, just click on it and it'll take you to the site with all the directions.
Happy stitching peeps.
Have a beautiful day!Francesca

We had so much fun at the Disney on Ice, Princess Classics show. I'm literally, all princessed out. Elisa like every other little girl out there was in awe. For a little monkey who can't sit still for more than a second, actually sat through the entire first half, clapping and waving and singing along. And for the last half, she got brave and stood and danced. She was so incredibly cute.
What wasn't cute was the price of things! A coke was $4.50. A mickey mouse light-up-thingie was $22.00; a box of popcorn was $7.00; and a snow cone in a tinkerbell mug was $15.00. Rip off, supreme. But we bought them anyway because Elisa wanted them. And she was happy. And that's all that mattered.
Hoping to scrap this weekend! And work on some projects from Shona Cole's, The Creative Mother (click on the button on my side bar to see what other mothers are creating).
I'm laying low, letting the pressure to create, to compete, to do anything.. go, and enjoying my family, the coming of spring, our warm'ish sunny days. And lovin' it.
Happy Monday everyone!
