I've got Sunshine..

It has been such a lovely week here!
I have been taking in all the good weather we
have been having..



When I saw these happy flowers out in the desert I just had to
stop and get a photo.  They look like sunshine to me..


When I was up in Portland dropping off Myles.  My daughter
and I went shopping at the Mall.  And they had a shop called
Made in Portland..
In that shop they had the most wonderful painting.  If it was
smaller I would have bought it.  The word on the sign said

I'VE GOT SUNSHINE ON A CLOUDY DAY

I just love that..  I might have to try to paint it myself..
We will see!




So I have been playing in my craft room with my paints and
enjoying every minute of it..  And in the evenings while watching
TV with the hubby I have been doing a little crocheting..
No I still haven't finished the baby afghan..  YIKES..


These are a pair of finger-less gloves..  I had made a pair for
my girlfriend.  And they were pretty quick and easy to make so
I making another pair!!

Well that's all I have to share with you today!
Thanks so much for stopping in
And
I do hope you have some
SUNSHINE
in your day even if its a cloudy, rainy, snowy kinda day!!

Till next time..

Hugs,  Linda

Well, I use to sing "I've got Sunshine, on a Cloudy Day" (My Girl)...in the car with Things #1 and #2 when they were wee little ones. We would blast it at the top of our lungs. Thanks for the memory :)

Beautiful yellow flowers. I have never seen a crochet pattern for fingerless gloves, I tried knitting a pair last year and couldn't understand the instructions, so gave up.

Love your beautiful flowers, Linda! Your afghan looks lovely and the thought of sunshine are always happy, but you know we have a lot of sunshine here so I don't mind a gray day, but the kitties prefer the sunshine! It is a warmish cool day, 58 now, supposed to be 78. Have a wonderful Friday!

Mmmmmm! I can say that, growing up in Pasadena, CA, I love the dessert in January. Such mild days, aren't they?

Susan McShannon-Monteith said...

Beautiful yellow flowers. We don't even have a hint at flowers here... unless they're hiding under 6 inches of new fallen snow.
Love your little Altoid tin from the last post.A tiny magical world that you can take with you anywhere. How sweet is that.
