What is Beautiful?

Beautiful — by Websters dictionary definition : –adjective
1.having beauty; having qualities that give great pleasure or satisfaction to see, hear, think about, etc.; delighting the sensesor mind: a beautiful dress; a beautiful speech.

Recently I recieved several emails saying that they “would’ve joined in Friday finding beauty but their post just wasnt pretty enough.”

*hands on hips and kicking the dirt!* Hrrrumph!

This celebration of beauty was NOT meant for perfection.

Whether it’s something physically beautiful or some kindness we see… This project is designed for us to slow down a moment and record that beauty to be enjoyed again and again.

It’s meant to help us change HOW WE SEE our lives and appreciate it more.

That’s the beauty of a blog– we capture the moment in time for us to revisit and others to be touched and… like the snow ball rolling down the hill, continues to get bigger and bigger and more “beautiful”.


I stopped by my sister’s office the other day to have lunch with her.

Warm welcome

Sadie, the official door greeter, gets to come to work and welcomed me with a darling smile.
My sis works for a lovely family owned business. Her particular job is all about numbers–Uggh

(I am so right brained I limp– so numbers would NOT be beautiful to me…)

office beauty

She dolls up her office for each season or holiday — surrounding herself with what is beautiful to her…Family and whimsy.

Can you tell she has a bit of Spring fever?

Kind heart

One day, just for appreciation, her awesome boss had a print framed and delivered to her office.

Look at those wonderful colors!  Now that’s beauty to me– not the print entirely– but the thought that came from an appreciative boss.

Taking the time to say how much they value her daily efforts was simply BEAUTIFUL.



On the way out Sadie thanked me for stopping by and reminded me to come back soon. (She obviously has attended charm school.)

    For being a numbers gal your sister does a great job with her office decor.  But I really wanted to hug that cute dog…since we lost our little Diva in November I am lonely for my puppy companion….Sadie looks precious!!!!  Great encouragement…we need to rethink our idea of beauty and the whole eye of the beholder thing….so much we miss and perfection is not the only beauty in the world. Thanks for doing this Claudia!!!!!

  2. Claudie says:

    Claudia you always capture beauty. I like that you are surrounding yourself with it. It shows, I can feel it girlfriend. I LOVE your sister’s style. I love whimsy! She’s very lucky to have a sister like you. My sis is pretty special too.

    Hi Claudia – I love so many things about this post – your explanation of beauty, the office that allows a dog (that Has to be a good workplace), all those wonderful whimsical cats and birdhouses but I adore that print!  I’d love to know who the artist is because I am completely taken with her style.  I’m loving my little bird tassel – he’s right at home in my house.  Thank you again!  xoxo Nancy

    What a darling dog! Very charming. I always always find beauty in my daughter. Sometimes I wish I could freeze time. At least with photography I can do that.

    Hello Claudia – I do not have a blog yet, but I am led here by Glenda @ Serendipity Cottage. She is so awesome.  I keep up with her through my daughter’s blog (Bella Della Farm). I loved your post for today and thanks for taking us along to visit with your sister at work.  Just loved the doggy and I also loved the way your sister has her office decorated. Congratulations also on your soon to be 100th blog.  I also would like to ask you about the kitties in your picture. I have some, but mine have different colors and patterns. I got mine from the Dollar Tree about a year ago. Yours are even prettier than mine. I would love to find the ones you have. Please let me know if you don’t mind.  I would love to add them to my kitty collection.
    Well I am off to visit some of your older post.
    Have a nice weekend.

    Oh yes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, isn’t it? I didn’t know about your meme. I put weekly blog events on my sidebar. Should I use your Dipity Road blog button I see?

  14. Claudie says:

    Thanks so much girlfriend. I’m so freakin proud. It’s just a little something, but I’m giving an Olympic pin away. I had forgotten to post the picture I was sooooo excited.
    All is well with my tooth now, all is well with the world. Julie booked her ticket today during the closing ceremonies. Only 13 more sleeps : )
    Love Ya

Good to see you are still here. Lovely photos, love all the figurines. Very cute. Wish I had a sister to spend time with…the little doggie is just adoreable.
    Have a great week.
