The Very First Tray of Bliss...

Well, here I am.

Oh, you're here too...thank goodness...I thought I'd be wandering in Cyberspace on my own for longer than this....phew! Come...sit with me a while. Let's reminisce about what has been, plan for what may come, and feast upon what is now. I'm not sure what we'll find, but I'm sure the seeking will be enjoyable nonetheless.

I'm hoping to share the many ways that I try to carve out some peace in my busy world. A ballerina daughter, a workaholic husband, a severely disabled son, and 3 adult boys with wives is enough to keep a girl busy. But marry that up with my quest to write two books, illustrate the world around me with paint and canvas, and indulge my love of all things vintage (including the husband!), and there's not a lot of time for 'me'...it's a common Maternal Dilemna.

Today I've been nesting. The rain outside has made my home a little gloomy and cave-like. But rather than burrow and hibernate, I've been refreshing and polishing things to a wicked gleam.

I love to put together a $5 Tray of Bliss to soothe the soul...that's it above...my thrift shop bargain hunting has yielded the tray, many, many embroidered linen serviettes, the tray cover and a belly dancer ring to use to cradle a folded serviette. Gathered together, it's a feast for the eyes, the heart and the soul

You can have that one if you like...I can do myself another. Come visit anytime you like....


  1. I love how you write! Oh... and the tray is quite nice as well *grin*

  2. Beautifully written! I look forward to reading more in the future.

  3. Hi Mimi,

    Look forward to the books (finally...hehe).
    Yes a tray of bliss doesn't have to cost much money but can certainly lift the spirits for the day.

    Have a wonderful day
