Celebrate Happiness

Look what flew into my studio the other day.  I'm so thrilled to have this lovely reminder so close.  And yet, sometimes happiness itself is like that saying 'so near and yet so far'.  

When I looked in my trusty Meriam Webster dictionary for the word 'happiness' I found several synonyms: bliss, contentment, felicity, state of pleasure.  Who in the world would not seek these beautiful words as a way to live? 

My quotation of the day is from the Dalai Lama.  This is a man who has lived with much sadness and fear and struggle and yet he still believes in happiness.  With this little reminder nearby I think my actions are speaking.

"Happiness is not something ready made.  It comes from your own actions." - Dalai Lama


  1. It can't be a coincidence that you posted on this subject today. I think I was on your wave length when you were meeting this sweet doll. I was thinking recently how much happiness people feel when giving a kindness to another, and how that degree of happiness changes from person to person, not necessarily by the degree of the act. It's so appropiate that you gave Happiness wings, for surely she needs the freedom to flit about!!

  2. Beautiful sentiments and quote from His Highness, the Dalai Lama...and your darling little bit of happiness that flew in is just that..darling!

  3. The peace and contentment on the face of this doll speak volumes about happiness. Such a lovely reminder that our focus dictates our emotions.

  4. She is lovely! And so is the sentiment she expresses.

  5. She's charming, and will be a great reminder...

  6. I love that so many of your current creations are winged. It gives them such a sense of freedom and possibility and this one is another joy.
