About Me

My photo
I LOVE to design and to paint whimsical items that will put a smile on your face. Each day I share my simple life with you as I try to encourage, to inspire and sometimes JUST to make you smile as I recount my life growing up on a dairy farm! I've never had many material items in my life, BUT I have been blessed beyond words with love and encouragement from WONDERFUL Parents who instilled in me WHAT was important. I have had EVERYTHING that I needed and WAY too much of what I wanted. I am slowly learning to be a better person each day through my interactions with my friends on Facebook. Some day I hope to be as good as people seem to THINK I am! I am BLESSED! Welcome to my little corner of the world...Please stop by and visit often!

To Dream...Tuesday, January 28, 2014

Quick, without thinking, Say the ONE thing that you wish you had RIGHT this very moment….ok…GO….(silence as I wait for you to answer…I’m singing Happy Birthday to you…WHY?  Because that is what we are told to sing when we wash our hands so that we wash them long enough…SOOOOO, I thought it would give you enough time IF I sang it now as a way to TIME myself as I wait in SILENCE for YOU to answer….Happy Birthday, dear…hmmm…wonder if anybody I know has a birthday today?....dear….LA LA….Happy Birthday to YOU…)  =)

Ok…THAT one THING that you wished to have…can you get it?  Is it possible to get it today?  Or tomorrow or is it something that will take a while to get?  PROBABLY, MANY of you wished for the cold weather to GO AWAY…WELL, hang on, it won’t be LONG until YOU are complaining about being TOO HOT…sigh…


I think a lot about dreams and goals.  I wonder what I can do to make some of my dreams a bit more profitable.  I wonder how to make my goals productive.  I wonder HOW I keep getting myself into doing MORE work that feels AS IF I am simply spinning my wheels and going in circles getting nowhere…BUT THEN, that one little sale happens and I smile and think:  AH, this is it!  I’m on my way again…

I posted the other day on Facebook that I miss the days when I could simply sign my name WITHOUT shamelessly promoting myself…yes, I laugh, but part of me misses those days of olde…sigh…the GOOD OLE DAYS…ROFL…

It is a fine line to PROMOTE oneself without being too pushy or getting on someone’s LAST nerve…it’s that nerve BEFORE the last nerve that we are targeting!  =)

Dreams are what gets us through the tough times.  Life without dreams is sad…BUT again, we have that “fine line” that we need to keep in mind—we MUST be content and appreciate WHERE we are and WHAT we have, BUT with a desire to obtain a bit more…hmmmm…clear as mud, right?

I wonder how many of us have the same dreams we had when we were younger?  I also wonder how many dreams in our life that we have obtained…how many dreams that we no longer wish to reach…how many dreams we have allowed OTHERS to destroy...

My DREAM for the moment is a Banana Split…WELL, it is obtainable, BUT it is 11:30 at night, 15 degrees and I have NO desire to take a shower and get dressed to go get it, SO where does that place MY dream…PERHAPS as a Dream Deferred…
These were created by my SWEET friend, Maria Willtrout
I guess you can tell that I LOVE to laugh…THAT is what has gotten me through some tough times…I’ve lost my ability to laugh and I hope to NEVER have that happen again…

Yesterday, I shared a punch line that Mother and I would say MANY times.  I commented that I didn’t remember the joke, well, most of it, but I remember the punch line.  Somebody shared the Joke with me, so I wanted to make sure that you have ONE opportunity to laugh today…Life is hard enough, so we need to grab ALL of those funny moments that we can…Enjoy your day and I wish you MANY MANY dreams and…Blessings to YOU…~charlotte♥

The joke is:  A woman with a humpback was sitting like a wall flower at a dance. No one asked her to dance because of her back. A man with a wooden eye finally worked up the courage and said "Would you like to dance?" And she said "Would I, WOULD I!" And he yelled back" Humpback, Humpback!”


  1. Got a good laugh for today!
    On my way to a great day of dreaming and thinking and working!
    Thanks Charlotte!
    Enjoy your day,

    1. Once we jiggle our INSIDES with laughter, we are THEN ready for some REAL work! =)

  2. I was behind on your posts until now. =) Thanks for the chuckles!!!


Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world. In case you haven't been told, you are loved!~~charlotte♡
