Finding the little things that bring you joy

Today, I was just thinking about the little things that bring me happiness and joy.  Most who know me know how much I love flowers and the lovely vessels that hold them—vases.  I’ve been building a collection of different styles of vases throughout the years and it’s just one of those simple, random things that brings me a lot of happiness.  It’s the vastness of creative potential that can come from vases and the different types of flowers that they can hold.  One day when the warmer summer months meet us again I am going to do a giant flower scape with all my vases.  For now, they lie in wait for the winter.

I mainly wanted to write this post just to encourage you to take the time to find those simple things that bring a smile to your face.  Something you can grow and utilize throughout the years.  I think creating little collections of things is so good for the mind, body and spirit.  It encourages creativity and is a joy for the heart.
