Sweet Surprises

This is what I found on my camera this morning, even though I slept right through sunrise.  The view from our bedroom window that Henri captured for this sleepyhead. 





Want a quick snack idea?  I found the "everything bagel" pretzels at the grocery store last night and thought I might dip them in some white chocolate morsels for a sweet and salty treat. 



And then this morning inspiration hit me as I melted the morsels and then got distracted.  The white chocolate set up too fast and so I just slathered it on between 2 pretzels. 



Just look what Lee from The Way I See It sent me in the mail recently.  A lovely handcrafted rose pin. All I did was leave a comment on her post and she awarded me with this beautiful customized creation.  I just love it!




She has had her artwork featured in Somerset Apprentice, and she lives right here in Maine too. Thank you so much Lee, it was a very sweet surprise!

Not sure which I enjoy more... sunrises or sunsets. Both are worth swooning over though. :-)

Lili--that was a wonderful sunrise your husband captured! Thanks so much for sharing it. This morning in Mid-Coast Maine, after all that rain yesterday and last night, the very air looked so clean and fresh. What's up with that old saying, "Red sky at morning, sailors take warning", anyway??? It's been a beautiful day!

Hi Lili - wow - that sunrise photo is amazing! How blessed you are to have that fabulous view from your bedroom!

Your pretzel goodies look sinful - totally!! I am afraid that I would eat more than just a few!
