BEAUTIFUL monday

Happy Monday! It's a sunny Monday here in Northern California. It's the kind of Monday that makes me smile at the upcoming week and think of all the beautiful things I can accomplish. These Mondays don't come along very often, so I'm going to enjoy it while I can.


While on the subject of beautiful things to be accomplished, I have to share with you the loveliest of etsy shops- not only are the art, cards, and plaques inside it lovely, but the heart behind it is even lovelier. I have had a number of project8256 prints in my favorites folder for some time now. I probably saw the first print on etsy's front page at one time and I went straight to the shop and found that I could outfit a whole wall with the prints I love. Now just today I was looking through my favorites with the intention of pulling a bunch and doing a post on them when I stopped to read the profile of project8256. I am so glad I did.

Project8256 is a shop run by Amy Coldren and all of the proceeds (that's right- ALL) go to an adoption fund for her sister and brother-in-law who are trying to adopt 2 children from Ethiopia, and to AHOPE, an orphanage that cares for HIV-positive children. I love that while purchasing something enchanting for the home you can also be giving to the life of a child. That is something beautiful to accomplish.
