There's No Time Like the Present

Happy Saturday Friends!

Spring has finally arrived here, and I wrote this poem to remind myself to seize the day.

This day... today. Not tomorrow... or next week... or next month... or next year. 

But today. This very day, and each and every day that follows.

One glorious day at a time.

There's No Time Like the Present

The dawn begins your story
as the morning sun arrives.
It's time to greet the daylight.
Time to dream with open eyes.
Your wake up call of songbirds
has no need of bell or chime.
The whole wide world is out there,
and today's your day to shine.
There’s no time like the present
to be present in your time.

The morning smells of joy and
tastes like hope and faith combined.
The sunlight feels like everything
is happiness entwined.
A feast for all your senses.
Please be grateful while you dine.
Embrace this life you're living
with your heart, your soul, and mind.
There’s no time like the present
to be present in your time.

The day unfolds before you
with a bliss that you define.
Your days on earth are numbered
so leave all regrets behind.
Be careful what you search for.
What you seek is what you'll find.
Sweet love and trust will guide you
to the promise land divine.
There’s no time like the present
to be present in your time.

The evening fades in softly.
To the day you say goodbye.
Night hangs its lovely canvas
as its brushes stroke the sky.
The sunset hums a melody
of colours so sublime.
The moon recites in poetry,
and the stars ignite in rhyme.
There’s no time like the present
to be present in your time.

There’s no time like the present

to be present in your time.

Thanks so much for reading!

I'm taking a short break from blogland to be more present in my own time.  

I'll be back in May with a giveaway, some long overdue projects, and of course Think Pink and Finds of the Week.

Until then...

Carpe Diem! Seize the day! 
Every. Single. Day.

Think Pink Monday: Pam from Virginia Retro

Happy Monday friends!

If you've been following me for awhile you know that pink is my favourite colour, so I've invited a few bloggy friends to do some pink guest posts. Let's just call them the Pink Ladies.

Pink is the word... is the word... that you heard.
It's got groove... it's got meaning.

This week's Pink Lady is Pam from Virginia Retro.


My friend Tuula, of Thrifty Rebel Vintage, asked if I would be
interested in sharing a post for Think Pink Monday.
YES please!
  I love pink, and decided to share some of my pink  vintage tablecloths. 
Starting with my tablecloth ladder, a great way to display several at once.

 It was difficult to chose which pinks to highlight on the table.
I hope you will enjoy my choices.

Finds of the Week #10

Happy Saturday friends!

It was a pretty light thrifting week for me, but I found two fabulous items for this coming gardening season... and some other treasures.

Thrifting Pink

Happy Think Pink Monday friends!

I hope everyone had a fabulous Easter. We were away for the weekend enjoying Easter gatherings with both our families and I was hoping to write my pink project post Sunday night when we got home, but it was around 10pm and it just didn't happen.

So I'm saving that post for a later date and sharing some pink thrifted finds.
