My word for 2012.

I had a time coming up
with "my" word.
Believe, has long been
my favorite word, but
I needed a new word.
So, I put on my thinking
cap, it had grown a little
snug, since I don't use it often.
Words kept coming to
mind, but somehow they
just did not fit.

In my kitchen I have a desk.
A desk where I keep a few
special things.  The altered
bottle I used as my header,
when I first started blogging.

A bird nest, my youngest
 daughter, headed off for college
this year. 
We had an "Empty Nest" party
before she left.

I have some roses from the yard,
 a heart shaped stone I found.

 There are plants I have
started from small leaves.

A book, I once
found at a yard sale.
All things special only to me.
Just a desk, where I sit and
pay the bills, address a package
to a friend, or just sit and
 I was sitting there,
 I looked up,
and  there was my word!
It was right in front of me,
all this time. 

I had created
this vintage plate window
to sell. When I am in the
middle of churning out
my products, I will often
hang them in the window.
I liked how it looked
hanging there,
so, I kept it.  I don't do
that very often.

Maybe, my muse,
whispered into my ear,
"Keep the plate,
one day it will
inspire you"!

I am glad I listened.

My word for 2012

Love to all,

I would say that Inspire is a perfect word for you - what could be better than to have it right above your desk where you can see it every day and be reminded. Perfect!

You always inspire, and I'm pleased to say you're one of my long-distance friends. Perhaps some day soon, we'll be able to share a "cuppa" together!
