Week of Happy……..Day Three……


Week of Happy……..Day Three……

I have been so enjoying everyone’s “Happy” comments! Keep them coming! They make my day, and in this crazy world we live in, a little bit of Happy is very good to have isn’t it?

Today’s Day on the Happy Train features Rustique by Emily Herrick. I was delighted with a lunch date at Spring Market with Emily and the equally fun Frances Newcombe, and I sure can tell you they are both the greatest company!

So here is Rustique!  I love the deer in this line….Much more than I loath the deer that try to destroy most everything I try to plant. They are like locusts around here…well, not quite, but it seems that way.

Anyway, Emily’s deer are marvelous, and the perfect size for more of these little treat bags….I tell you I am addicted to making those!



Here’s a little more Happy for you! I can’t love this song enough!!

Also totally digging that Fuchsia, Orange, White and Black plaid too!!

There are some great “blenders” that I love using in place of solids too!

So Day Three….If you have been here for the other posts, you know what to do.  If it’s your first day in the week of Happy, here’s the score: Leave a comment about what makes you Happy on today’s post as well as all of the Days of  Happy Week this week. Two prizes are being awarded. The first prize is shown on Day One and is from Chronicle Books. The second prize will be revealed Day Five and will be an assortment of things that I picked up at Spring Market plus a few cleaning out items from my studio.

Keep Sewing, Keep Happy!

    My great nephew Christian (11) was finally released from Mary Bridge Hospital after a 2 week stay for a stroke and unexplained seizures. The above song was this theme song for the day ,…perfect happy!

    I absolutely love the little bags. They are so adorable.
    What made me happy today is that our car tore up. I’m not happy about that, but I am happy because we thought it would cost a fortune to fix it, but it only cost a fraction of what we thought.
    Have a “happy” day!

    Those are definitely some happy deer.
    We had a happy family Popsicle break this afternoon….and artichokes for dinner, my favorite summer food (and fairly deer resistant, if I could stop killing the plants)

    I love it when I see my children smile and wrap their little arms around my neck to tell me they love me and I am the bestest grammy of all.

    I am so grateful for my children and all of the grandchildren they have blessed me with.

  • Thank you for sharing the great video! I am happy after watching it and looking at rustique! Here the deer eat everything too but it makes me happy to see the little spotted babies this time of year.
