Rose Colored Glasses

Better Than Dirty Glasses

I don't know about you, but I'm generally a 'half full' kind of girl. I try to see the good side of things. It's not always easy, but usually there is some good even with the worst of the worst. I believe if you focus on the negative, then that's where you're energy goes. When that's where your energy goes, that's what comes back to you. Kind of like a cosmic karma boomerang. That's not to say that I look at things unrealistically.  I don't. I am an optimist securely grounded in reality.  I may look at the world through rose colored glasses, but that's because you can see better through rose colored glass than dirty ones. 

Are you an optimist? Or do you usually look at things half empty? How do you think your outlook affects your life?

Elle Moss 21 Day Photo Challenge

It's day 8 of Elle's photo challenge and today' theme is 'dress'.

I love this toe to to shot of my great nephew Cayden and my great niece Sophia.  Pumas to MaryJane's. Ripped dungarees (as Great Grammy would say) to hot pink tutu.  The polar opposites of boys and girls. Sugar and spice and everything nice vs. snakes and snails and puppy dog tails.

I hope you enjoy your Monday. It's gray here today, but the rain hasn't set in yet, so that's something.

Gar was absolutely thrilled with all of your comments about Lia Artisan Concrete Designs. You really made his day.  He's out stocking up on supplies while I work away at my desk with the hound snoring behind me.

You gotta love it.

ciao for now,


  1. I like to think I am a glass half full kind of girl, but their are days where that can be a challenge. The photo of the little kids almost touching toes is soooo cute!
    Everyday Inspired

    1. Hi Valerie, I say kudos to the half full brigade! there ARE most definitely days when it's a challenge, but even on the worst days, I know that sadly, there is always someone who is worse off than myself.

  2. what a cute picture. and I am definetly an optimist. :~D

    1. oh, those two (mr puma and ms. maryjane) just adore each other. if they're together they're stuck together like glue.

    Thanks so much for including my wall clock

    c(”)(”) Love It

    1. Hi shelly, it just love that clock. it's so happy.

  5. thank you so much for including my work! I think there's enough negative out there so I try my best to be optimistic and positive. I strongly believe your outlook affects the way your life turns out. life is too short and there are so many things to be grateful for and to celebrate.

    1. hi there plt. more than welcome. love your work. and i couldn't agree more. there IS enough negative out there. who needs it! and i too believe your outluck affects the way your life turns out. it's like your emotions can be a magnet of sorts.

      i'm grateful to have found your artwork and that you stopped by to share such wise words.
