A Good Week and a Happy List!

I’ve had a wonderful week and here’s my Happy List!

1. The weather here in Florida has been fabulous this week!


Here’s a peek at a horse farm near our house taken out the car window at 55 mph!

2. I’ve been creative! I wanted to make some bags but couldn’t find the patterns so I created my own! I’ll share soon!

3. I’ve received a few gifts from Giveaways (not all this week but over the past few weeks) and that always makes the happy list!

Sharon from the PAFA giveaway sent me this lighted basket!


It’s so adorable!

And this cute little pendant was made by Melinda


at Alabaster Rose Designs !

Do you LOVE this GORGEOUS tray that Debbie

from Love of the Sea sent me?


It is perfect for my home here in Florida! Look at the details!


4. We’ve had some delicious meals.

Look at this papaya! It is as pretty as it is delicious!


I made a chicken salad with some of it!


5. I enjoyed blogging all of my ocean photos this week!

The ocean makes me happy!


I’m linking with Dandelion Wishes with my Happy List!

6. The first time I ever saw a Happy List, it was on

 Art at Home! That’s how I became friends with Ricki!

Don’t you love making new girlfriends?!

Have you had a good week?

Did you do anything special or creative?

I am thinking that happy lists not only make the writer happy, but every one else.

We all need a little more happy in our lives.

Thanks for sharing.

Sounds like you have had a good week. Your received some lovely gifts. I enjoyed hearing about everything. It's just been an ordinary week here although today I went for a walk around a nearby lake with my daughter which was great. We chatted and enjoyed a little sunshine.

Brittney said...

Ill be visiting fl soon I hope it stays so pretty :)

Into Vintage said...

If I were ever lucky enough to live near the ocean, the Gulf coast would be my first choice. It's so beautiful there -- can't imagine seeing it every day. :-)

Amber said...

How lucky for you to have won all those gorgeous items!

The ocean makes me happy too, it looks beautiful in that picture. So peaceful!

Brenna said...

I love all your wins!
I wish we lived by the ocean... I am always so jealous of those that can put their feet in the sand and surf everyday if they want to!!

Annalisa said...

I love the tray, but all the pictures you took are stunning!


Diane Writes said...

Hello Diane! Great gifts!!! I believe you are more than just lucky. You must have done something good to be rewarded and you are indeed well loved to receive them. Happy weekend my friend!

Michela said...

Hello Diane, thank you for visiting! We had a rainy week, luckily today there's a spot of sunshine so I can enjoy my garden a little bit!

Such a pretty tray! A Happy List is a fun idea.

This week I gave tours to first graders at the Springfield Museum's MFA. Really fun!
~Judy said...

I love the idea of a happy list and you have so many things to be happy for :O)

The tray from Debbie is so fabulous - you lucky lady.

Thanks for your nice comment on my chalkboard painted old mirror. It covered the glass beautifully.
