Treasure Seeker

I used to walk for the sake of walking.  But now I walk with purpose.
Rather than only seeing a stark terrain.
I see trees and birds.
 Vegetable gardens in bloom.
Trailing vines and flowers in the most unlikeliest of places.
 I pretend I am on an adventure.
Today I came home with five smooth stones.
 And dressed them up with crocheted covers.
Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so.
(Mary Jean Iron)

Have a beautiful day!

You have such an infectious, good attitude Tammy and for that, among many other reason I am glad to have connected with you and your blog. :-)

oh, I love that quote! I think I'd have to pull some of the wild vine up and try to root it. That is how I got my wild morning glory and it is HUGE now. I love your stones...but DON'T get me started on ANOTHER project! have a great day!

Tammy you know how much I like your posts! You make each day count and that's something I try doing too! Gives you inspiration to move on! (Regardless of what you're doing!) Your treasures are wonderful! And your crocheted stones too! (You could also paint them, that's something I was doing with my mum when I was little!)
Have a really nice day,
Angeliki

Such a lovely quote and one I will try to follow. Your stones are wonderful. It is much better to see all while on a walk. I like to walk different neighborhoods just to see different sights. Happy week dear...

What a wonderful idea...I must learn to crochet!! Keep looking at the sky rather than the dust and enjoy the birds!! JOan

What a wonderful quote. More people should heed those words. Being an artist I think I do. When life gets hectic I try to go for a walk in our woods (as long as it's not bear season). Also we have very large windows and being in the foothills of the Cascade Mtn. range the clouds can pile up there. So just sitting and watching them is magnificent. I so enjoy your walks and your rocks too.

Your crocheted stones are beautiful! I'm visiting from Becca's and I just had to see what you are making. I collect seashells and these would be beautiful mixed in. Are they hard to make? Do you use a pattern? Thanks for sharing your talent!

Hi Tammy,

You do see so much more when you walk and I am always on the look out for some treasures too.
Love the sweet rocks with the crocheted covers.

Happy week

hugs from me...

Linda said...

I love your great attitude and how you find treasures in the simple things of life. :)

Oh, Tammy...that is SO TRUE...especially the quote at the end. I think nature of any kind is God's therapy. It cures what ails you and renews the spirit. All of nature is a gift. Thank you so much for sharing yourself on this blog. It makes me so happy when I read your blog.
