How Fun! Vol. 22


“How fun!” I find myself exclaiming this many times throughout the week. Here are just a few things that touched me or made me smile:

Black capped chickadee from Beauty Observed

I want to thank everyone who linked-up last week!  We had an all time high of 30 posts linked-up.  How fun!!!  And, Saturday, April 26 is the six month anniversary of my first post here on Beauty Observed.


I know I shared a Rend Collective song last week, but this one is too good not to share.  Simplicity by Rend Collective


I want to read this book!  The author of Fictitious Dishes created and photographed famous meals from a variety of literary works.  You can see excerpts from the book in this Smithsonian Magazine article.


And while we are on the subject of reading, here is a fascinating article from the Washington Post that talks about the different parts of your brain that are used for reading from paper and reading from a digital device.   I love learning about how our brains work!


What we are eating next week:

Baking this weekend: chocolate chip cookies

Have a great weekend! Remember Philippians 4:8. “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”

    There are no words to express my thoughts at this moment. At times, the beauty observed is in a photo or nature or words. And this morning the beauty I observed was with my ears – the song moved me to tears. It spoke deeply to my heart. For that I had to say “thank you, Elizabeth!”. I so love coming to your blog each & every time you post. It may have started out for the link up but not anymore. Now it is solely for the beauty I know I will find here.

      You have no idea how much your comment ministered to and blessed me! I needed to hear those words today. Thank you so much for taking the time to post them. <3

    Elizabeth, thank you for hosting! I love the picture of the chickadee. I see them in IL and while I’m here in Germany, and their activities and songs make me so happy. It’s the simple things. 🙂 Hope to see you and your friends join my party at Go Crochet Crazy with anything homemade or handmade (including chocolate chip cookie recipes…yum!!).

      I really like chickadees. They are so sweet! And I agree, it is the simple things!

      I will have to find something homemade and come link-up at your party! Thanks for the invitation!
