Poetry in Ordinary Things©: Found~Treasures

"Poetry lifts the veil from the hidden beauty of the world, and makes familiar objects be as if they were not familiar." ~~Shelley







Found~treasure...blackberry vines lying about in my Dad's yard...entwined with the Bougainvillea...true poetry in the ordinary.


Sending love and good thought to all!



Warmly,


Tracey and Family x0x

Hello!!
This is the fourth time I have tried to sit down at the computer for comfort and joy. (Also addicted to the game Farmville!) My great grandson aged 2 lives with us, we have quite a household. Every time he senses I am not doing much, in he comes running. I just wanted to tell you how uplifting you are Tracy! Have read your books for years, pure enjoyment! Have a Super Great Day!! Love, Nana

Thank you so much Nana, for the encouraging words. :) I know just what you mean about little ones (and some big ones ;-) seeming to have a sixth sense when we're looking for a quiet moment alone! Your household sounds lively!!!
Love,
Tracey

Thank you so much Nana...for the kind words. :) Your household sounds lively! I can empathize with you, it does seem that little ones (and some big ones ;-) seem to just know when we are sitting down for a short quiet/alone time!
Love,

"FRUGAL LUXURIES: Simple Pleasures to Enhance Your Life and Comfort Your Soul" was written by Tracey McBride and published by Bantam Books, NY, in 1997. It was the first of its genre to synergize the elements of simplicity, frugality and gracious living.

After more than a decade, FRUGAL LUXURIES has never been out of print and is now more relevant than ever.

"It's our hope that a new generation, faced with a teetering economy, will also find this information helpful and enlightening."
