Satisfaction Saturday & Sunday...

A very simple watercolor and stamped post card using my favorite inspirational stamp. Can you believe the adorable charm to match? I found those and knew I had a match. I shall be doing more creative things with these two in the future. For now I mailed my little post card minus the charm to my sister just to say hello. I will give her the charm in person. Sometimes the mail handling is a bit rough and things get lost or mutilated on the way to their destination.
So for Satisfaction Saturday & Sunday...
My Finish It Friday was a success. I completed all five of the top priority projects that were on my desk. Today I mailed two packages that were deadline critical and I feel so much better to have them on their way. Now I feel like I can enjoy my weekend and spend some time relaxing with my DH who has been going through a very troublesome root canal for almost a month now. It is so not like him to feel so poorly and exhausted. This morning with no rain we ventured into town (remember our quaint National Historic Town in the Gold Country) and not only got the mailings done at the post office we also did a little walking. We happened on the monthly book sale at the historic library and managed to pick up several good books. His for reading and mine for artistic endeavors. Our purchases will help the floundering library system here locally. I always knew about the monthly book sale but now that I have actually been to it I shall for certain be going again. What a wonderful way to purchase some interesting books for so little. Then we stopped in the local coffee house and had a window seat to sip our beverages. We watched lots of people coming and going. It is always good to see visitors come to our tiny town. Upon driving home we stopped at one of my favorite neighborhood parks and we walked a short trail they have there. It was invigorating and led us right up to lunchtime. So home we came. Now we are settling in for an afternoon of reading in front of the fire and for me some hand sewing in order to complete some more projects.
I hope you and yours enjoy and have a Satisfaction Saturday and Sunday.


  1. Unreal that you found that charm but just makes it..

  2. Love your card with the delightful little shoes. Great saying. Sharon

  3. Oh My Goodness Sweetie..
    What a beautiful charm to match your precious stamp. I love these little shoes. They are just precious. I bet your sister will be thrilled to get this precious card of love. You are so kind and generous.

    Sounds as though you and DH had a beautiful day, mailing, lunching, strolling and shopping. How fun is that? Reading by the fire the treasures you gathered earlier in the day. I love it.

    Thank you for sharing sweet friend. Have a beautiful rest of the weekend. Country hugs...Sherry

  7. What a wonderful stamp!!! I jsut love Mary Janes and I used to dress my daughter in them all the time- now all she wants to wear is sneakers- better than flip flops though, right!!!
    Finishing projects is so very satisfying isn't it!!! Good for you getting so much done and then being able to enjoy your morning with DH!!! Sure taht it did him alot of good to get out and about!!!!

    Watch out now that you ahve been to the monthy book sale!!!! We ahve a monthly one here and it is a great place to pick up great books for my read aholic teenagers but I do also find tons of great old damaged and worn books to use in art and particularly fabric/paper. I ahve justified spending alot of money by saying it will help the library and I lvoe to do all i can to help in that area!! THE STACKS OF BOOKS ARE PILING UP HOWEVER!!!!!
    Happy Stitching!
