Simply Pleasurable

We recently had our annual neighborhood clean-up, a Saturday morning filled with yard work and getting to know neighbors as you work alongside and serve. While cutting down a patch of overgrowth in a new neighbor's yard I got a glimpse of a mound of fresh moss in the pile. My trash-to-treasure huntress instincts kicked in and I quickly scooped it up and set it aside. When work was done I carried my little nature find home and plopped it inside
a vintage tea cup
.
It's a pretty little reminder that
blessings come when you serve,
sometimes you just have to notice them.
I'm excited to share some news with you!
Joys of Home was recently listed among the Top 50

. It's an honor to be found amidst a list of some incredible blogs!

Wonderful, Joy, congratulations! I love moss. I actually have some pop up in between my brick patio and my husband complains about it. I love it though and try to leave it there as along as possible.

Congratulations! And how good for you to spot that moss, I bet everybody else would have just got rid of it. It looks so nice in that cup!
