in which good things are celebrated

good things. they are all around.


the enticing fragrance of sweet peas.


the promise of a bounty of sugar snap peas.


the simple perfection of stockinette.


the unmistakable allure of coffee...

... just about everywhere i go.

Simple pleasures are the best. If we could all learn to enjoy the things we have around us we would have a greater chance of true contentment. Lovely photos

My favorite things- coffee and stockinette stitch. Most have a way of calming me. The project looks like it is on it's way to be something wondferul, can't wait to see it. :)

The simple pleasures in life really are the best ones and so readily available to us. Coffee just can't be beat unless of course it's the lure of more yarn!
