I LOVE this quote. I have to say that William Morris is a person who has influenced the way I live, creatively. He supported the arts, and liked to have beautiful things around him. It was his believe that things didn’t have to be merely functional, but interesting to look at and interact with as well. A serving spoon can be a work of art~!
Beyond that, we can look up, look around, and find beauty all around us. Compare the color of a tree trunk to the sky behind it. Take a closer look at the inside of a flower. There are often sparkly stones inside of concrete. A drop of water can contain a whole miniature world~! When light shines through leaves, they look like stained glass. What an amazing world we live in~! It is important to our health to observe the world around us using as many of our senses as we can.
What do you see that is amazing in what many think of as the ordinary world? Teach us to see something new in our surroundings. Please leave comments~!

I liked this poster immediately when I saw it. I’ll confess I’ve only had ONE ice cream sundae in the last decade. I didn’t finish it. It was actually too sweet for me, but I sure had fun putting a serious dent in it. People say that you can’t buy happiness. I’m not sure if that is true. You can add your opinions in the comments section~! I have spent money on things in the past that I thought would make me happy, and I’ve been wrong. I’ve also bought things that have brought me joy. By the way, this poster is for sale on Etsy.com (an online craft show), at the Gayana Shop. These are all posters from the Gayana shop, and the artist has over 200 other posters to check out if you’ve enjoyed these. Oh, I also noticed that these ship from Latvia. That’s cool~!

“I shall pass through this world but once. If, therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do, let me do it now; let me not defer it or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.” — Etienne de Grellet
