Life's Little Instruction Book, page 128 . . .





...To be continued...

Thanks for stopping by the cottage on this last Saturday of August. The summer has virtually disappeared here and it's cold and rainy. After all the heat we've had, it feels very good. I just feel sorry for all the people on vacation. It will be better on Sunday. Enjoy your weekend. ♥Rosemary

I hope this video will inspire all the artists out there who sometimes question whether or not their art is worthwhile. I enjoyed the watercolor musical story very much and hope you did too.

I overslept this morning on this fine summer day. The heat is supposed to be back in full force later on. I am going to get my outdoor work done early.
Thanks for stopping by the cottage! ♥Rosemary

The stewardship of owning land . . .

I was so happy to find this quote to go with another page I ripped out of a magazine. I found the quote and added the text to the photo. I am going to type it again so it can be searched in case you want to find it months from now.

"I think having land and not ruining it is the most beautiful art that anybody could ever want to own."
Andy Warhol

I couldn't have said it better!

Orphaned hedgehogs adopt cleaning brush as their mother . . .

Four tiny orphaned hedgehogs are snuggling up to the bristles of this cleaning brush - because they think it's their mother.


Daft as a brush: Infant hedgehogs cozy up to their adoptive brush mother.


Playtime: The baby hedgehogs enjoy themselves with their pretend mother.

This is one of the most heartwarming stories I've read in a long time. A true story much like a beloved Beatrix Potter tale and of course it takes place in the English countryside. The smells on the brush, which is used to sweep a yard, remind the hedgehogs of their natural habitat while the texture reminds them of their mother.

Read the full story here.

Thanks for stopping by the cottage for your daily dose of inspiration. Don't you absolutely love this story? Enjoy your Sunday. ♥Rosemary
