To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

CREATING COTTAGE CHIC WITH THE PIONEER WOMAN
What a great weekend of shopping we had...
new clothes for him and kitchen goodies for me!
I just had to share these beautiful pieces with you
from The Pioneer Woman collection!
I picked up two new placemats
that are just precious AND reversible!
How sweet is this little sugar bowl?
Along with a new cream pitcher!
I simply had to create a new little coffee station for us.....
I also picked up this beautiful bottle of Lemonade
from Sprouts...Tangerine Lime...
the darling knew I couldn't resist
this beautiful bottle!
Which is going to be more glorious
served in her glassware......
Then I came across Spice Drops!
My goodness, I have not thought about these in years....
Grandmother used to have these for us in a precious
little glass candy dish!
Yes.....even prettier displayed in the PW little sherbet dish!
I would say Ree Drummond has been
a smart cookie, by designing her collection
to mix and match pieces over time....love it, love it!
This is SO much more festive than a plain ole' white mug....
Lastly, I added one of Grandmother's sterling silver spoons....
"just a spoonful of sugar.....'
Aren't you just happier when your world is full of color!
