Saturday Travels and Beautiful Words


Found some cuties on my rounds today...



...wouldn't this look gorgeous on the cover of a journal?




Do you know what this is? A lipstick holder! How adorable is that?














This morning while running my weekly (at least) errand to Target, I found this magazine. I picked it up and threw it in the cart; it was just a couple of dollars.





It turned out to be adorable! Check it out if you should happen to stumble across it on your travels.




From Courage by Anne Sexton

Later,

if you have endured a great despair,

then you did it alone,

getting a transfusion from the fire,

picking the scabs off your heart,

then wringing it out like a sock.

Next, my kinsman, you powdered your sorrow,

you gave it a back rub

and then you covered it with a blanket

and after it had slept a while

it woke to the wings of roses

and was transformed.
