Smiles! From Our Happy Home

 I've been finding more simles around the house.
Can you see this one?

 It's a Fungus that is growing on the old tree.

This is the "tree" that is in our backyard.

 This is one Big-Old smile!
It almost looks like Kermit the frog.

 It's my bird feeder just outside my kitchen window.

I've been finding Happy Faces and Smiles in some really
odd places, in and around our home.
Last summer, I found my first two, click here to see them.

Dayle, over at A Collection of This and That,
is hosting Simple Pleasures.
Please join us every Thursday.



There are over 18 different types of smiles that are used in a variety of social situations. For instance, people can use a smile to say a hello, and they can also use a different type of smile to show their understanding of a  particular situation.


  1. I love your smiles. both the ones you find and the ones that grace your rooms on an given day... Lulu's, Levi's, Tom's (I assume he is good for both giving and getting), Kimmy's, Marks... yours, etc! Of course, add mine to the list even though I am not there, I'm grinning from ear to ear!

  2. You really need "vision" to see smiles around you. I just looked around for a few minutes and the only one I see is the outlet on the wall. I'll keep looking.

  3. Very happy and cute post! Every time I look at the stacked vintage suitcases in my guest room I smile because the handles on the suitcases all look to be smiling at me!
    Have a wonderful day.

  4. I love the happy smiles you found!! I am always on the lookout for smiles and hearts. :) It always grants a little smile when you find one. :) I'm glad you got a chuckle from my "food babies." HaHa Thanks, as always, for your comments and visits to my blog. :) :) :)
