There Is Always, Always Something to be Grateful For....



Wow, it has been a month of Sundays since I last participated in Texture Tuesday...Kim Klassen's weekly meme utilizing her textures which she so generously shares with us.  And speaking of textures...when my computer crashed I lost all of Kim's textures.  Put on very sad face. And I had many many of them since I had been following her ever since the get-go.  Granted many I did not use anymore (most of her earlier days of developing textures tended to be on the dark and very grungy side) whereas now they have a lighter touch.  But I sure did hate losing them all.  I guess I could take my old hard-drive with my new computer back to the Geek Squad and ask them to search and re-load, but that would mean giving up my computer again for a couple of days.  Not going to happen right now.

It's like anything else...sometimes you have to lose something to appreciate what you still have in life. There is a saying wandering around Pinterest right now that says...."There is always, always something to be grateful for."  And I definitely agree with that.

Not only is Kim generous with her textures but my blogging buddy Barb from Keeping Up With The Times  has been creating these sweet brushes which she is sharing with all of us.  So hop on over to Kim's and then to Barb's to gather up some sweet goodies.  Now Barb is from Canada, but she and her hubby have purchased a condo in Phoenix, AZ.  She and I happened to be in Phoenix at the same time earlier this year, but alas we just couldn't find a time to meet.  Hopefully in the future we will have that opportunity.

Have a good day everyone....I am on my way to meet my granddaughter for lunch to celebrate her birthday and her new job.   And wouldn't you know it, her new job is very close to me.  How sweet is that?!

Until next time....

  3. I once had a tea pot and with mugs which were very similar if not the same to your beautiful vase-I foolishly took them in our motor home, left them on the counter forgot about them until we turned a corner and heard them smash-I never found anything so lovely to replace them. In the end I was grateful a certain vase hadn't toppled with them. This is a beautiful photo with Kim's texture.

    I am so sorry you lost the textures, but you're right, it always gives us reason to appreciate all that we have.

  17. This is so beautiful and charming.
    That is a bummer about the textures, perhaps someday you might be able to recover them off the old computer hard drive.

  18. You are my favorite person Deanna! Really. you always always find the positive in things and really know how to be grateful....
    Now I really need to copy my textures and actions safe... thanks for the reminder.
    But you know, you could write to Kim and ask her if it's okay that I would pass on her recent freebies for you? She is such a generous lady and she might be okay with it... let me know what you think!
