Spotted Tuesday: Sweet and Green

My son is quite sentimental and sweet. He melts my heart with his sweet words. Just last night, he asked if we could put a TV in his bedroom just like the one he has in our house in Vancouver. My answer was, "No, you do not need a TV in your room." Then I went on with my preaching that nothing is free and that you really have to work hard to get what you want. He replied, "That's okay, Mama. I will work really hard and when I'm 19 (the age that he thinks he'll be a grown up), I will earn money and buy 2 TVs. One for me and one for you and Papa.

How about this birthday card that he made for me? Not bad at all coming from a 6 years old boy, I'd say.





This picture below was taken by his teacher at the playground last year. I so appreciate the thoughtfulness of this amazing teacher. Taking pictures of her students and sharing them to parents.



With this picture in mind, I find these beautiful handmade products on Artfire and Storenvy.

  1. What an amazing son you have, Nat. Not only is he sweet and creative, he is sooooo cute! And that IS a fabulous birthday card for a 6 year old to make. Must be a lot of artist in him! Your green finds are wonderful - some I recognize, some I will have to explore more. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Thanks, Anna! Blogging is like writing journal. I like to look back to my old posts and reminded how things were like in the past.

  8. Oh, how sweet! Handmade cards from my children are still the best - and they are young adults now! The photo of your son is priceless, too. I like how you used the vibrant greens as an inspiration for the handmade finds you highlighted. Thanks for sharing!
