Dearest Koralee, I could very much use some Joy right now, it seems that life right now is in it's downs rather than ups....But, it's life! Wishing you a wonderful week =) P.S. I changed my blog name to Under the Paper Moon, but the blog address is still 1942charm.blogspot.com Xo, Ashley

YES, because JOY WINS every time, doesn't it precious? If I am mad or sad, it cannot stay long because the GOOD outweighs the negative, ALWAYS! YIPEEEEEEEEEEE FOR THAT!

I had seen a totally white pom pom wreath this Christmas on Pinterest and I had wanted to make one, but of course, I was making my wedding dress, so I had no time for much else! I tell you, I cannot wait to get my book order! I am thrilled to pieces for you sweet one.

YES, the weekend flew by and we too tried to squeeze in some fun. I go to work on Wed.-Fri. to keep my end of the "deal" and I hope to do some drawing today. I wish you a fantastic day planning and teaching and putting a smile on a child's face. BISOUS! Anita

Sue (Someones Mom) said...

Aw...so pretty and sweet. I love them too, but I always feel as if I should dig out my skates and tie them on! I remember being a child at the roller rink and if you had pink poms on your skates, you were so special!

Blessed Serendipity said...

You can't help but smile when you hold a pom pom in your hand. Remember those little creatures we used to make out of pom poms with the googly eyes and the antennas? I think we called them love bugs? Smiles!

My dear one,

GOOD MORNING!

Oh how lovely to get a comment from you, to know that you had a day of laughter in your classroom! I had a day of smiles at home yesterday as I attempted to draw a new Valentine's card; I better get it in my shop before the day to celebrate LOVE is over!

I go into a middle school social studies class today so I better get myself ready, but WHAT KIND OF COOKIES DID YOU MAKE YESTERDAY? And we got a new tea: STRAWBERRY CHOCOLATE....OH DEAR....another goodie!

Well my beloved friend, take a journal to work with you and jot down those precious morsels of laughter. Those kids truly make us laugh and the memories for me make it all worthwhile!

LOVE TO YOU! Anita

Ingrid said...

I enjoy your little pompons too Koralee......happy colors!

Sad things are always hiding for us, but smile makers are lovely! Hoping the sad does stay as just a little note and doesn't get any bigger. Maggie.
