Five on Friday - Five Things That Made Me Happy This Week

I'm following the idea of Maggie at Normandy Life:  https://normandylife.blogspot.com/2017/02/five-on-friday-9-5-things-that-made-me.html

Five things that made me happy this week.

1.  I found this picture of me and my dad on a family face book page.  I must have been about 3 or 4?  I was the last of 6 kids and my dad was 40 when I was born.  Well, his birthday is the day after mine - so he was almost 40....  My dad was 1/2 Native American - Potawatomi.  He was born and raised on a reservation near Crandon, Wisconsin. 


(ignore my picking my nose....lol)

2.  Part 2 of the picture above - my dad loved ugly sweaters too!!!  I laughed when I saw this picture.  Funny thing is, I can remember it, it was actually like mohair, soft and cozy.  Oh how I wish I had it to go with my other 40 or so vintage ugly sweaters.  (I wear them!)

3.  I have been trying to eat better and I made this brown rice, quinoa and raw veggies bowl.  It was very good.  I'm happy to say, I lost another 1.5 pounds so a grand total of 6.5 in January.  Yay!  



4.  After last week of being sick, I "kicked it up a notch" and was very productive this week.  Here is a post about it:  http://dickybirdsnest.blogspot.com/2017/02/what-im-working-on-wednesday.html  These wool hearts make me happy.



5.  I found this magazine and 2 pattern package at Sam's Club.  It had the Euro price.  For my new followers and friends from abroad, I fell in love with the word Haberdashery while in Scotland and Ireland.  I set up "pop up" sales.  I rent a building for a weekend or longer and set up a mini shop.  Similar to your "boot sales" - only not from my car - although I have done that too!  Anyway, I have plans to bring a Haberdashery of vintage sewing to my little piece of the world hopefully in April.  




I hope you each found something to be happy about this past week.  Thanks Maggie for the inspiration.  

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.
