And I think to Myself what a wonderful World……….

Img_8818 I had to share my walk at the park today. I run or walk 5 times a week at our local park. It has a man-made lake and the best path that surrounds it. Well, I forgot my Ipod and Zune.  Usually when that happens I spend more time taking in the surroundings. This is what I saw: a little old lady walking with a golf club in her hand (maybe to fight off attackers??), the local homeless guy had his cart decorated with Easter eggs (how did he get them??)  , at one part of the park there was  a Mexican Birthday Party with a Pinata, Mexican music, and the smell of Carne Asada tacos (made me a little homesick),  and at the other end of the park a huge group was celebrating Saint Patty’s day early. I thought to myself what a Wonderful World……… I was in the backyard today planting flowers and watering them and caught my Daughter putting flowers between her toes….. she was enjoying herself so much I wouldn’t dare tell her to not pick the flowers! Img_8820 What else? Ohh went Thrift Shopping for the first time in a while and found some fun things!

Lets see, 4 rolls of wallpaper not a roll over 3 dollars and they a beautiful!  Lots of little bags of Victorian scraps for 1.99 each, 99 cents for the Vintage flashcards, lots of little pins under 2 dollars each, lace trim 2.95 for a huge roll, lots of antique postcards, millinery flowers and some stationary. Very fun! I also found this cute little shelf for 6 dollars, I love the chicken wire on the doors!Img_8759 Ohh I sure did miss going. Now time to create with the goods!                                      Img_8754

    What a sweet post! I love the picture of your daughter with the flowers between her toes. So sweet. You have some seriously great thrift shops out there to find such awesome treasures! I have to go to antique shows and flea markets to find stuff like that!
    Thanks for reminding us to see the beauty in everyday life.

    Yes, what a wonderful world it can be. Specially if you take the time to look, listen and smell around you 🙂 Here in The Netherlands people are to bussy sitting in the traffic, work, and running from place to place. I am glad i am going back to Norway next year. I miss space around me, the nature, just all the small thing..the life is not that busy there, i love that relaxed atmosphere! I am so glad that the Spring now is coming !! Yesterday it was 14+ here!! And my crocus was in full blossom, joepie!

    beautiful shots of the little.. so cute on a lovely gardeny day!

  18. Stacey Says:

    Wow. Your thrift shops sound treasurefully wonderful! And the prices are great! We don’t have very good ones here in Hawaii and when you do happen upon a treasure it’s usually expensive. My most favorite on this post is the great moment you captured in the photo of your daughter sticking the flowers between her toes. Priceless. You should frame it. I walk/jog about 5 times a week too (about 4 miles a day), but I my route is nothing like yours. I just run on the sidewalk along with the traffic. Ucky toxic fumes! When I lived in San Francisco, it was nice on the weekends to go to the park and walk along the beautiful paths in Golden Gate park and see all the people out and about enjoying the day. I do miss it.
