About Me

My photo

I am a work from home, home schooling Mom who loves her Kids...yep, I think my kids are great. You will find me: Knitting, cross stitch, embroidery and working with felt are things I enjoy for fun. I also love to decorate and find deep satisfaction in decorating my home with great finds and my handmade items.  Gardening is one of my great loves, it like decorating outside!

Loving Self

Sometimes we struggle with how to take care of ourselves.  We wait for someone else to show appreciation, love, some sort of sign that they care.  Much too often we are let down and we feel resentful, unloved and lonely.   As for me I took the reigns in my own hands and started doing things that I wished others would do for me. 

I have bought myself :
Milk glass

I have treated myself to:
Bubble Baths
Long Walks
Afternoon Teas on the Patio
Strolls through gardens
Strolls through Antique Shops
Jaunt through a good used book store

Though sometimes the pocket book doesn't allow too many treats I always keep a pink rose in my room.  I have found if I use the little packet that comes with it (for one rose you only need half) it will last me two weeks.  This one is 10 days old and still amazing.  I use to think I got the Roses to appreciate their beauty...and I do.  But now I get the Roses to show them how beautiful I am.
Don't forget how special you are...even if others do.

This is such a GREAT post...I love love love your frugal luxuries...and the remark about the rose appreciating you! You're a woman after my own heart. :)))

Excellent point! I think it's important that we treat ourselves occasionally. I think if we are happy, that spreads to others then.
