I smile when thinking of..

..the times the children were little:  the boys in 1989..
(this photo was taken by my Father )

...and the daughter in 1992.

..special moments in life..


..and I smile in spite of the troubles in life: with needles and pins

 Smokie, Needles and Pins

  3. I love that dancing couple! Is it you smiling sweet,
    dear Leena?
    And the 'needls and pins smile' is bittersweet for me. I prefere the smokie variation... great work!
    You are right, with smile often mothers think on their children. Different characters, don't they? So sweet, very strong. As her mother.

    Thank you for your wonderful theme and beeing our host this weekend. Have a nice time!

    Love,
    Ariane.

  4. Yes Leena happy memories can make us smile again and again and you look so heartwarming happy, dancing.

    The needles and pins smile is a very different one but very well found, great idea. (i often have the idea not so easy for people in the western world)

  9. Smile was a wonderful theme. It caused me to think of reasons I have to smile.
    So many...
    Your inventive smile with pins is very unique and beautiful. Something I would have never thought to do. Also, the sketch on a pillow case, so so pretty.
    You are blessed with three handsome children! A reason to smile.

  10. yes, come to think of it, a smile is a daily thing, fortunately!...
    just finished wrapping up the cartooned smile, after finally installing back the computer hardware. what a job on a sunday...
    the smokie-needles-and-pins leaves me somewhat puzzled. are those human lips, or am i plain thick, here?
    wonderful theme, leena. cheers.

    1. Nadine, that pinned smile is my picture of smiling when life is not funny. Sometimes there is sadness in smiles and sometimes the smile is to hide sorrow.

  11. Thank you Lena for this weeks smiles- so true that a smile can mean so many different things...but mostly I like to think that a smile is joy and joy is bravery- knowing that life is only momentary-
    Your photos are precious! and the pins are superb!
