Happy Weekend!!


  1. Aaah! Pinning a lot of these right now. I love Charles Dickens' quote ... I've never heard that before.

  2. So fun - some of these pics are super creative, Jeanine!

    Have a spectacular weekend!

  3. @Liz: Hey Liz! :) Yay, I'm glad you like the pics, after finding each one I was so excited it was like uncovering a little treasure. --isn't that quote by Dickens fantastic??? I think it shows him in such a relatable, human light--instead of the more one-dimensional light I so often view him as--that genius author who lived some time in the 1800s whose books to movies I now enjoy watching so much :) oh and 'teasing hair' ??? What the??? haha too funny

    @Rissi: Thanks for stopping by Rissi, awesome, I'm glad you enjoyed the images! They were fun to find. I hope you have an inspired and relaxing weekend as well :) thanks :)

  4. What a beautiful post! I am going to have to go read now. :)

  5. @tabulyogang: Thanks girly! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

    @Jessica: So glad you stopped by :) Yes, it makes me want to tackle some good reads on my list...I have a whole pile stacked next to my night table--there's just not enough hours in the day!! :)
