apples for poppy anne

Feeling a bit of low energy today…….my body finally succumbed to a cold after 2 years of nothing.  Sure I would get hints of sickness but was always able to snuff it out with all my remedies………not this time.  Teaching fitness classes with no voice or energy is interesting.  I taught 2 injury prevention classes, Step, Lift and Water today………add a cold to this mix…..and a lost voice…….so that’s the reason I have no energy this afternoon.  Are you feeling sorry for me yet?  :)

While perusing my FFF (future feature file) Apples for Poppy Anne was like a warm blanket to my weary body.  Her site has this serene feel to it…….calm……..I would just stare at her photos in Awe….

Maybe it’s what’s IN the photo that made me stop……the sweet little treat there………yes she does have the recipe.6a01156eac53c0970c0115708c2e30970b-500wi

Some people may just view the chair below as a mess……..but she obviously didn’t and I love how it looks…….love all the colors.

Her garden area looks perfect for an organic garden don’t you think……….it’s the star that does it for me.  Her blog is finding beauty in ordinary life……..We need more practice at that…….or at least I like to remind myself to stop and look at things differently…….find the beauty.

She’s a crafty girl too……sewing, knitting…………but that’s not what’s here below…..I think it’s her husband………his shirt is exactly what I needed today……I laughed so hard. Thank you.

6a01156eac53c0970c0115707019be970b-320wi  What I really really liked……..and I’m sure if I were feeling better…..I would have run out and gathered all the supplies to try my hand at this screen printing.  She has a full tutorial on her site…….

I KNOW!  I was that excited too……..6a01156eac53c0970c01156f85cd7e970c-320wiBesides showing her little birdy screen print……..look at that baby in the shot.  I think I could eat a whole one.   6a01156eac53c0970c01156f7a089b970c-320wi And you know…….this is what I’m talking about……..Delight!

I wonder if she has a pattern for her stencil…….must go back and see.

Enjoy everyone.

I sure hope you feel better soon! This is the time of year that we all wait for, warm weather and sunny days, so you don't want to be ill. You need to be careful too, I taught aerobics with an earache and now I suffer from vertigo. Take care sweetie!!!
Thank you for always finding such interesting blogs!
Hugs,
