My hearts content

It's my favorite weekday Friday and I think a perfect post would be filled with what has me smiling the most right now.  I finally figured out, because I wonder about stuff ya know, why I love animals and kids so much.  Are your curious?
Or do you want to see more of my dress because this is all you'll get of this yummy 1970's maxi I found for $16.   I promise to wear it again and show it off proper:) 
 Back to my recent revelation.
Animals truly see us at our best and worst and love us unconditionally!  Even human beings aren't always capable of that.
 My pack.
Kids, even though I have none of my own, by their very nature are so imaganitive and curious, playful and innocent.  To be around them sets one's spirit free and suddenly I am a child again.   These girls are   a joy to be around.
 They had fun wearing my tiaras.
Here they are with their Dad our friend Dave.  He brought them over yesterday to feed the ducks at the pond by our house.
  It had been too long since I last saw them.
 We looked for fairies
  and quacked at ducks
 and ran from ducks
I was also reminded of a basic human nature that starts oh so young, mine.  Lil Rachel just wanted all the dolls, can you blame her really:)
I am blessed to have so many kids in my life to love and critters to cuddle.
 Enjoy the weekend you beautiful creatures you!

I love that you have such a positive attitude towards life and people (and animals). Your personality shows through in your colourful wardrobe too xxx

That's why I love animals so much, they love us unconditionally and wholly. I can't wait to see your dress in full. Have a great weekend lovely lady. Xx

Even if you don't have your own kids, I think it's good to have some in your life to remind you of how to play and be silly. I'm sure that little girls think you are the cat's meow with your candy-coloured hair and cheerful dresses. The colours in that maxi are so ridiculously happy. Have a great weekend Krista!

The girls are so cute in their tiaras. Looks like they had fun.

Such a lovely post! Animals always make me happy too - just having the chance to pet a cat or dog makes me feel so much happier about life. Also I can't wait to see more of that frock.

You totally oput a smile on my dial, baby!!
Ah, yes, little furry critters that love us no matter what are my favourite thing!!!
I do enjoy time with kids, but they really wear me out!!! I don't have all that many kids in my life, actually, so I've never really gotten used to them.
That frock looks srumdiddlyumptious and I am gagging for a better view!
LOVE YOU!

Look at all your furry babies........yip unconditional love, I just wished they lasted as long as kids.
The two wee poppets are just so pretty and look at there pom pom crowns....thank you Krista.....you are just so special.
It's hard not having kids........I get sad ever so often when I see the joy they bring.
Have a truly wonderful weekend.

Too much cuteness - you, pretty girls, feathered friends, cute kitties and darling Peetee!

LOVE little Peetee's face in that first pic - he definitely knows he is Mama's favourite!
The kitties are magnificent - I have such a soft spot for Ash, she's wonderfully imperious, she does NOT give a shit, does she?!
How adorable are those wee girlies? Pretty damn gorgeous! Bet they love coming to play with you, Krista. And oh but that maxi looks amazing - show me more, show me more! xxxx

Those little girls are just too adorable!!

your kitties are gorgeous but you know my hear belongs to PEETEE!!! He is just so sweet!!

I'm with you on our pets!! I couldn't imagine my life without my babies!

BellaBean Vintage said...

Beautiful post lovely Krista. Kids and animals are special - There is real purity there I think because they live in their bodies and hearts. Sometimes us human adults spend too much time in our heads. Oh and more dress please - looks scrumptious! xx

edie pop said...

When I'm not busy disliking kids I'm busy liking them! Gaaa. Too much magic time is good for the soul. And you're so right about our furry friends.

Miss Simmonds Says said...

you're so lovely! You're happy and positive but not in a holier than thou way, you're just a gorgeous person. I'd forgotten you had another kitty! What a stunner! I love having pets round, they're so great for the soul. Can't confess to feeling the same way about children, but who knows, that might change. Those girls are so cute! I love your dress, so pretty, so bright and sunny. Have a great weekend xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
