Indulgences

I think for many... we like our lives to be pure, sweet and simple... I also appreciate a home with this feel.... connected with passions for the unusual loved objects... It is a gift to be able to achieve this desire... For years women have been realizing their dreams.. we all enjoy sweet token of affections and confection... many times we must realize these may be obtained through one's self... We will be very disappointed if we are always looking for someone else to create our happiness and entertain us.... We will be pleased if we learn to create contentment for one's being...
For many it may be what you are wearing on your back... For myself it has always been the sharing of my home... Whatever it is for yourself... follow your dreams... I, at this stage of my life... have many illustrations of loved objects for my home running through my mind...but there remains a small problem that must be completed on a very tight budget... Although it can be challenging, it can be accomplished.. A beautiful complication of old, timeless, simple and lovely always works for me...
A blustery winters morning has a way of setting back one's dreams unless we learn to make the most of it... We then must dwell in our warm homes... sitting a mood can become a wonderful experience... Gentle flicker of candlelight and a warming fire and the warmth of a hot beverage can enhance any winters day.. Even a winters freeze , we can pamper and rejuvenate our spirit and gather inspiration.. and make treasured moments with many small luxuries we have in life... We just must simply take time to enjoy....
Do something special for one's self today... utterly romantic little indulges... They really never fail to charm.......

What a truly wonderful post Marietta! I completely agree that the little things we do can bring us a lot of joy...without spending any money at all. Even drinking my afternoon cup of coffee out of one of my special pretty cups can be a nice pick me on a cold icy day like today!!

Stay warm ~

EXCELLENT POST!!!!! And so true. We must be the one we count on. And yes, a cold wintery day with a fire lit, a cup of coffee, tea or cocoa & a favorite book or magazine is a heart warming dream I try to make come true as often as possible! Beauty can be found all around us...all we have to do is LOOK! HUGS! Charlene

I agree with Marilyn, Yes, this is a lovely post! I had been taught all my life to not be selfish but sometimes one needs to treat themselves to small indulgencies. Tonight I lit a candle that sets right next to my computer. It smells wonderfully and warms my heart thus I am content. Thank you for always sharing such sweet insights. You are a true treasure in blogland.

I have always been a person that gave time and love to others. It is in my nature to be a care giver.
I think your post is about giving sometime to yourself. I think crafting is my time to myself even if I am making something for someone else. It is relaxing if you are not in a hurry.
Big Hugs, Mary
