.good morning sunday :: n˚14.

Hello friends!  Well, I hope this Sunday finds you enjoying the sunshine and cool breezes as we quickly approach summer.  If you ask me, it seems like summer told spring to take a hike a couple of weeks ago because it's been a lot warmer than usual.  How about in your area?  How are things going there?  Well, here we go with today's list:
  • My mind has been pretty preoccupied lately.  Honestly, it's been really difficult to keep a straight thought which is why I haven't been posting as much as I'd like.  Working through a funk that I have been having a hard time shaking off.  But I'm okay!  I've been spending a little more time outside, attempting to grow a green thumb as well as flowers that I hope will stay alive and flourish.  The top photograph is of three little pots with little seedlings of sunflowers, zinnias, and daisies.  I'm excited to see these little guys sprouting up!  By golly, this year, I want a garden!  
  • Speaking of gardening, I truly am a total dunce when it comes to growing stuff.  But I'm trying.  I found a cute little book that encourages kids (and adults like me) to grow fruits and vegetables.  After featuring each plant, the book also shares some pretty delicious looking recipes.  Yum YUM!  
  • Do you ever feel like creating something, whether it's a drawing, painting, sewing, or whatever, and although your hands are so eager to work, you can't seem to get beyond the blank canvas?  What do YOU do to break that wall down?
  • I have been thinking about sewing, mostly outfits for my daughter and skirts for myself.  I've been browsing through a few books, like this one and this one.  Anyone out there have any suggestions for others titles?
  • Some time in the near future, when I have a little more mullah to play with, I will need to order more of this film, and possibly try out some of this film so that I can take more photos for this flickr group that I've just been invited to join.  I love portraits!
  • Just so you know, I haven't forgotten about my music posts.  I will have one here for you tomorrow.  :)
Alrighty friends, I will see you here again mañana!  Wishing you beautiful days ahead!  xo

P.S.  Just had to share this.  Gave me goosebumps!


  1. i know those eager hands and that blank canvas more than i'd like much so, that it could be the title of my book.

    i applaud you for your gardening attempts with little knowledge....way to just get out there and do it !!

  2. being out in nature is a great way to clear the mind, or at least take a break from a chattering one.

    what i do to break down the walls is create anyway. that is, focus on the process of splashing paint, scribbling, whatever, with absolutely no goal in mind - play like a child. it frees up the brain.
    that's why i love art journalling.

  3. The soft bokeh in the second shot is GORGEOUS!

    Gardening is a wonderful way to get out of a funk, speaking from experience. The emotional and physical connection of working with soil and plants is very therapeutic... plus you get to take beautiful pictures of the process!

    To answer your question about "tearing down the wall" (Pink Floyd is now in my head... ha) what I do is go inspiration-hunting... looking at things on the internet and around our home that make my mind get in gear... and it really helps! Lately, I've been a bit obsessed with a site called Pinterest ~ an eclectic smorgasbord of "pinned" photos that are full of color and creativity!


  4. Love you pictures here...I Do feel most creative around the full moon time for some even disrupts my sleep!..I kind of get obsessed with a project and then once is done my mojo returns into hibernation mode...Honestly! really have a green finger.make the most of it my friend1


Just so you know. . . you've already brightened my day!
