~I am thankful for my "McHappy" ~

I want you to meet my squirrel friend

I got him for .50 cents at a second hand store
his happy little face just spoke to me
his new home is on my kitchen window ledge
where I can see him everyday

"McHappy" is always Happy
when my daughters are in a bad mood 
I remind them to take a peek at "Happy McHappy"
he always turns their frowns into smiles.....
{well 95% of the time... the other 5% of the time they want to throw him at me}
I know it is a silly little thing.....but it works

while using coconut in a recipe the other day
  my girls had the idea of sticking 
our McHappy in the snow
I think they have grown attached to this little guy too 
Today I am honoured to be a guest blogger over at
I feel so blessed to call Anne Marie my friend
please go visit her
you will be ever so enchanted by her sweet
take on life
her energy is endless
and her family and farm adorable
Thank you my friend.

McHappy looks like such a teeny little fellow. I'm scampering my way over to Anne Marie's place now. Best wishes, Tammy

I just bought myself my own version of a "McHappy" - a little vintage duck with a tiny vase attached. He is living on my windowsill just like Mr. Squirrel. I think I will call my duck McHappy...a good ring to it!

Everyone needs a little "McHappy" in their lives.

Marilyn Miller said...

I wish I had a McHappy. Now I will be looking for him in high and low places. Something that makes us smile is priceless.

You know dearest, that little aqua shop we BOTH LOVE is from Pinterest and I have NO IDEA where it is. But I must look up the name you mentioned. WOuldn't it be lovely to have a shop like that, filled with cupcakes and paper goods? goodness life can be so fun. WELL, you are going to be very busy in the next several weeks that mark the end of your holidays. I cannot WAIT for CCC! We shall connect and then make the meeting happen. WOw, I am shaking now just thinking about it!

Hi Koralee Sweetie...
Oh I SO LOVE McHappy. Is he sweet or what? I know that would turn my frown upside down. What a deal on him as well. You always find the cutest darn things. LOVE it. Thank you for sharing sweet one.

This is the Miracle Weekend makeover. I am one of the hosting sites. For every comment left, Guideposts magazine will pay a dollar, to the next cancer makeover patient. Please stop by and read the story about 9 year old Charlie, and bless me with a comment. Out goal between the 4 or 5 blogs is 5,000. I know we can do it. I would appreciate it, if you pass the word around to as many friends as possible.

Thank you sweetie for a wonderful post. I love it. Have a glorious weekend. Country hugs from Phoenix, Sherry

Good morning, Koralee!
I'm smiling here in the early morning hours... McHappy is so adorable! I L*O*V*E finds like this and I can see you in that shop making the decision that his name will be McHappy and he should come home with you :o)
It's that inner JOY that bubbles up and makes us see with new eyes.
♫ We've got that joy, joy, joy, joy down in our hearts! ♫
Have a JOY-filled Sunday, my dear!
Blessings always,

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...


Oh I cannot wait for the CCC. I think however, that I will have to take the least expensive route....I need to look at all that is being offered and see, but FOR SURE, I WILL be seeing the most beautiful of all wonders.....YOU! THAT IS A FACT!

Ahhhh....what a beautiful day out here in Minneapolis/St. Paul. I hope your time here will be good to you weather-wise. September is usually lovely. OOOOOH I CAN'T WAIT!

HAPPY DAY..and yes, I am off to glitter SOMETHING! BISOUS, Anita

I visited your blog today. I saw you on Castles, Crowns, and Cottages. Isn't Anita's posts wonderful? Your blog is so pretty, colorful, and charming. I love the teacup and cupcake photo. Me and my daughters just started a new blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you and seeing all your creative ideas. Hope to hear from you, and have a lovely Sunday.

I loved your post over at NaDa Farm. We have some new neighbors that just moved in, two houses down. We didn't get over there to meet this this weekend because of my nieces wedding. But this coming Saturday, I plan to stop by to say welcome to the neighborhood.

Oh My Goodness!!! I love McHappy! I have a weird fascination with squirrel figurines-they really do make me laugh!!! I thought of you today-we are going here tonight!
Check out the photo on the cover-this is so you!
Happy weekend to you and yours!~
