I have lowered my prices on all of my fingerless gloves. I realized I had a great go of it after the Dooce post, but I think that I know my best prices now and I don't want to fool around with it any more. Please check out Second Seed when you get the chance.

The other day Megan wrote about finding contentment in her blog. I am sharing some of what she wrote because it feels very true and needed these days.
“Success will not be found through the gratification of desire, but in the end of desire – which is contentment. Wealthy is he who enjoys what he has.”
In Lama Surya Das’s book, Eight Steps to Enlightenment: Awakening the Buddha Within (Tibetan Wisdom for the Western World), he refers to the famous Buddhist philosopher Nagarjuna, who said that contentment is true wealth.
The end of wanting more, will it ever happen? Being content with what I have....why is this so difficult? I have so much. I have unbelievable abundance but I still want those Orla Keily juice glasses.

The Grammy's were so much fun last night. I usually watch and wonder who those people are, but last night I knew them all and enjoy them all. I am smitten with Chris Martin of Cold Play. And it is so much fun seeing Stevie Wonder at work. He was also on the Ellen DeGeneres show this week. One of the first albums I ever fell in love with was Stevie Wonder's Journey Through The Secret Life of Plants. It was my brother's vinyl album but I would borrow it and listen to it for hours. Our formal living room held the record player in the back and there was a brilliant sapphire blue couch that was placed a few feet in front of it. So I could lean against the back of the couch, put on the big plush black head phones and listen with out interuption. I felt like a special princess in a far away place when I listened to the songs on The Secret Life of Plants, (I was probably 12 years old). If you have never heard this album - do your self a favor and listen.

I have numerous beautiful vases. But I refuse to buy flowers now that we have to save our pennies, so I decided I am going to make some felted and zipper flowers to put into the vases. I purchased some lovely hand knit flowers in December and I don't know where I put them. These zipper flowers are by Zippinning. The felted ones are in hannebdesign's shop.

Congratulations to all the Proximidade Award Winners. I personally do not appreciate the chain letter like quality of this award, so I am not going to expect you all to fullfill the responsibility of citing 8 wonderful blogs - but if you want to to it please do!
