What Inspires Me Today

I found this on Facebook this morning and I fell in love with this image, it truly is an example of how a picture is worth a thousand words:

"The Heart is the Secret inside the Secret." Rumi

I have few treats for today.  First I would love to introduce my new addition to ButterflyInTheAttic:  The Postcard Collector's Forum
http://butterflyintheattic.blogspot.com/p/postcard.html

What a great way to connect with other postcard collectors.  Get answers to questions, help identifying publisher's, artists, etc. or even if you want to tell other postcard enthusiasts about a great postcard find.
 
This, like the first image, is from Facebook.  You could use this for your classroom to demonstrate how plant systems work or just have fun with your kids.  Imagine how magical this would be to a preschooler.  Not to mention using it create unique bouquet for someone special.

Last but not least before I show of the great Etsy treasuries I am in,  I found this great DIY on facebook.  I love candles but they can be so darn expensive:
From PennyAuctionsCanada 
If you love candles, you'll love this ...

1. heat the wax using steam until melted
 2. place water in balloon
 3. dip the balloon into the hot wax
 4. Let the wax stick on the balloon to dry
 5. Pop the balloon and remove the remaining water
 6. put your candle inside
