Easter Swap

I am busy making spring inspired Easter gifts today!  And I worked on them while watching Chocolat.  I love to watch this movie during the Easter season.  I love the setting of small town France and I love the ending sermon the most…..the humanity of Christ and loving each person just as they are.  So refreshing!!!

Speaking of Spring….Easter is fast approaching and I am hosting another Swap!!!  Instead of an Easter basket I would love to have us fill one of those photo boxes you can find at Hobby Lobby or Michaels, usually for $2.  There are easy to pack and ship and come in lots of fun designs and are useful afterwards.  If you would like to participate please email me at amusingprovincial@yahoo.com with the subject : Easter Swap.  Please include your name and address as well as some of your favorite spring related items including colors and candy, projects and hobbies, anything you can think of. Please let me know by April 1 I will email you your partners info by April 7 and you will have until April 17 to ship your item.

Living the Life you Love

Life is too short to be trapped in a life you don’t love.  I’m not saying it’s going to be a bed of roses all of the time (hello….look at my life!) but I believe we can enjoy life in the small things by doing a little of what we love everyday.  I have big dreams of unlimited budgets, a hamlet in France and a gorgeous garden where I sketch and paint all day.  While I can’t enjoy those things right now I can carve a piece of my budget for things that bring me joy.  I can grow a few herbs and take a few art classes.  I can read about France and try to incorporate parts of their lifestyle that I enjoy like eating fresh market produce and taking siestas when time allows (long live France!!!).  As the days are growing longer and the sun is warming the Earth that is just what I plan on doing!  How will you start Living the Life you Love today???

On the Hunt

Lately I have had made the time to partake in one of my favorite time spenders…..junking!!!  I love to spend time in flea markets, antique stores and market booths.  It’s especially fun when I have certain items I’m looking for.  I just finished this new gallery wall with some new and old treasures and I already am looking for some items for a new project!
