Loving the quote and your sweet pictures Koralee. My early Monday morning is off to a rainy start it's a bit chilly too. A little fire in my fireplace and my favorite cup filled to the top with early grey tea is keeping my warm and cozy. Will stay for at least one more hour in my chair. Lots of love for the new week! o xx o xx o xx o

Such a late Spring.. we still have a fire in our pellet stove! But tomorrow I will cut a bouquet for the table.. even if it's tiny.. is that an inkwell? I have a small collection of them.

((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Hearts Turned said...

So lovely, dear that sweet pink vase! The flowers remind me of the flowering crabapple tree just outside my bedroom window when I was growing up in Ohio...I can still smell it's sweet springtime scent....ah, memories!

Wishing YOU a glorious week, sweet friend...


Alessandra said...

Here I am precious...loving your pickings and actually SNEEZING as I type! How strange is that! It must be psychological for I have some fierce allergies! Oh dear one, I know you are off today...YEAH! And I actually have to go onto my classroom for some last minute data entry that is required! THEN THREE SEMINARS THIS WEEK for our new RTI program...RESPONSIVE TEACHING...something or another! Oh I just want to start my vacation! I am taking the image of your clippings with me, thinking of you! BISES, Anita

Happy new week to you too, Koralee! I'm hoping to slow the madness down and enjoy the little things. Love your pictures today (as always!!)

fernandflora said...

Happy New week to you too! I always love the line from Anne of Green Gables "tomorrow is fresh with no mistakes in it." That's how I feel about this new week. Last week I was cranky. Ready for a good one!

Hope yours is lovely. xo!

Marilyn Miller said...

There's that sweet pink vase, I just love it. The blossoms almost look like apple blossoms, but the leaves don't, so not sure what they are.
Have a totally delightful week.

Unknown said...

Sweet, precious KoraLee, You are my first stop this morning on a bright sunny Monday here. What a perfect way to start my week off. I will keep that quote close to my heart and visions of finding a pink inkwell of my own in my journeys this week. Pop by later I'm thinking Strawberries today maybe even in some ice cream.

Off to snap away,

Pinecone said...

Have a great day Koralee!

Trisha Brink Design said...

Maria said...

I love Martina's comment ~ it IS the little things that bring joy and smiles...
You capture and share them so well, Koralee*
It's what makes you so dear to all of us ♥
I love the little seed sparkles all over these flowers {is this a wild rose stem?}
Oh I did get your invite and got soooo carried away with learning how to "pin" pretty photos!
I'm still learning, but this is FUN! truly FUN!

Thank you so much Koralee! I will love cataloging great photos and visiting your favorites too!
Have a great week, hope your last week/s at school are easy on you ~
*Blessings always,

Elyse said...

love every pixel of this post.


i.ikeda said...

Oh that quote is so right, just sometimes it's easy to ignore or forget what's truly important, what matters, what we love. Our reactions to daily life aren't always consistent with what we know in our hearts to matter. Apologies for my tangent and monologue here, haha. I hope your days are filled with those souls and things you love, dear Koralee. Xoxo

This reminds me of my post for today...sweet flowers, and love!

Ciao Bella!

Home canning to a whole 'nother level.


Sue said...

Just popping in so you will know I'm still alive...just a little bit crazy! I've actually been able to concentrate a little today-PROGRESS! Love the pictures and the sentiment!

francis said...

Good luck !

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Sweet Koralee, YOU ARE PACKING NOW MY DEAR? You are juggling many things my dear, for you are still in school, non? Well, I was in my classroom yesterday doing so many things and I started getting overwhelmed with all the NEW things coming down our way for the following year. It looks as if I will be translating our new science curriculum materials to French this summer. I am disappointed because I wanted to devote the entire summer to pursuing my own writing development, but I cannot leave all the work to my other two colleagues. DRATS! BUT......I will have to simply carve out time for my own personal endeavors. BUT SHOW US YOUR HOUSE as soon as you get in my dear and I wish you a HAPPY DAY!!! Anita
