Some Shared Enthusiasm

Things are getting a bit stale around Frippery Farmhouse. Lot's of changes going on but nothing ready to share. So I think I will spend the rest of the summer sharing other places. Inspirations that I love to visit, read or just eye candy to enjoy.
The Lettered Cottage is one of those. I am sure most of you have visited Layla but this post and the quote from Ralph Marston at the end were just what I needed right now. I find this happens a lot with blogs I read, someone always has just what I am looking for on that particular day. So thanks Layla, and all of you, for being such a positive part of life.
Another quote I would like to share is one from Charles Kingsley,
"We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all that we need to make us happy is something to be enthusiastic about." True words, very true.

Have an enthusiastic Friday, P
Pin It!

I live Layla's blog too and read it everyday. I am blessed to be a very positive minded person, sometimes to my detriment! But when I have times that I am not so positive and perky, I force myself to stop and take stock of my life and look around and COUNT my blessings! I always come out ahead!

I enjoy your blog very much!
