My happy little things...

I want to live in a simple world... with simple people around me. A world where we don't have to feel pressured to accomplish big things... even as a child I knew that life is made up of little things... Little things may seem nothing to some, but to me, little things have big meanings.... like meadow flowers, and waking up to the first flock of Robins in the garden... little things—they bestow joy. They give me peace.

I’m the same person (in most ways) as the little girl who grew up believing that butterflies were fairies in disguise. I still get passionately enthusiastic about little things... like running against the wind and jumping around like a ballerina in the air... and of course, I love love playing house in my house when nobody is around...

Roses from summers past... lovely and nostalgic

No room is complete without roses..


Little roses big roses pretty roses...

Love that deep dish with the roses design... a thrift store treasure.  And the vintage book on the left with the lovely roses on the cover--I made it.

Love my wallpapared wall

From Arabella de Aragon to Otilia Micaela De Luna to Anastasia De Castellanos to my grandmother and my mother; we've been gypsies at heart and in real life for centuries.

"Half the joy of life is in little things taken on the run... but let us keep our hearts young and our eyes open that nothing worth our while shall escape us".  Victor Cherbuliez

Have a nice week everyone!


  1. Beautiful post, I love all of your roses and such a lovely post. Hugs, Marty

  2. I too love a simple life. I am happiest playing house or working in my garden. In just 7 short weeks, I am retiring. I am very active at my school and put in many extra hours. People are worried that I will be bored. i say to them, "you've got to be kidding!" I get to play for the rest of my life.

    Enjoy a simple week.

  3. lovely post like the pretty roses leon10

  4. such a pretty post and I love your new header.

  5. Oh, I could feel the tension and unhappy atmosphere of my workplace just simply slip away as I lost myself in your beautiful blog. Only three more Mondays. I'm trying to be happy and positive, but my life sure looks like I'm mired in the mud... We HAVE had a lot of rain, hahaha...

    Love your pretty roses and your kind thoughts.

  6. Oh most certainly we are Kindred Spirits as the Little Things bring me the most Joy and Contentment too! You have captured this Sentiment and Outlook of Life most eloquently!

  7. Hello Dear Cielo,
    We are so much alike. It is the little things that bring joy to my heart. If the wind is blowing I raise my arms out and enjoy the passing breeze - the birds singing seem to call to me, 'come out, come out'. I agree - roses should be in every room - love your wallpaper - very romantic - I hope you have a blessed week,

  8. You know how much I love roses by my last post. Your post is beautiful!
    Love the wallpaper, dishes, etc.

    Have a wonderful weekend in the garden.

  9. I love people who love to say the things they love LOLOL! I adore your little things and love them too, especially because you love them!
    you are blessed. lady

  10. Cielo are a weaver of dreams, the spirit of eternal youth and have created a place of beauty, peace and wonder for all to share. Your gifts bring happiness to all who enter your world of fantasy, magic and happiness. Heaven be thy name.
