The Secret to Happiness

If you're like me, you read blogs Monday to Friday but rarely on the weekend. Nothing thrills me more on a weekday than when there's more than one post to read on one of my favourite blogs. It's a gift that adds happiness to my day. 

I enjoyed watching this TED Talk given by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi on the Secret of Happiness. It was filmed 10 years ago but is very relevant. 

Along with the video, hopefully having this extra post to read next week will add to your happiness. 

Happy Saturday!

Final Barn

In my absence (again, my humblest apologies), I realize that I neglected to show you my final barn rug. I think I agonized over this rug more than any other. I don't know if it helped the process or hindered it. 

I added a border of many different textured browns. The idea was for it to look like an old wooden frame. Don't know if I achieved that. I was happy with some parts of it, but like any rug I can look back now and see some things I might do differently now. It's good to learn from each and every rug, wouldn't you say?

Lots more to share with you. I realize I've finished a few things of late that I haven't posted here yet. 

And in other news....only 3 days left until that dang Elf on the Shelf returns. Pray for my sanity.

Gobble Gobble Day in the U.S.A

Absence makes the heart grown fonder? Me hopes! Ridiculous absence - my humblest apologies. Just doing a few reno's to the blog and trying to kick-start a triumphant return! Ahem.

Allow me to begin with a hearty Happy Thanksgiving to our family and friends in the US of A. Enjoy your turkey and all the fixings!
