 little things





never skip on the extra effort,
that additional few minutes,
that soft word of praise or thanks,
that delivery of the very best that you can do.
.......never neglect the little things.
(og mandino)

a wee little note
pop on over  to create-ologie
to find the lovely jar I used to hold my flowers
if you fancy it or anything else
type in Koralee at the checkout for a 10% discount.

hope your day is a dog-gone happy one filled with oodles of little joys

I LOVE FIGS! And fig butter? OH but of course!!! Slathered on a nice hunk of brioche or any other eggy bread is pretty darn fabulous! And the little seeds are so yummy to chew. Dried fig cakes are a specialty in Spain and are a treat around Christmas! LOVE that you are enjoying some time in the kitchen! We are having a fall-like day here today and I'm working on a poem but I also feel like taking a nap! I think I will!

Happy day my dear friend, Anita

fabulous idea!

Madison said...

And this is the very day you took the extra effort... the additional few minutes... snipped those beautiful pink hydrangeas blooms from your front bed (the ones I look at from my kitchen window every day) and stepped across the road to introduce yourself to me. Do you know that I had just asked the Lord to let me meet some more neighbors that day?
He is good.
Thank you for your kindness!
So pleased to find you here, Koralee.... and looking forward to many more comings and goings across our little street.
