Repeating My PEACE Mantra!!!

I'm having a stressful week!  I'm trying to collect money from someone who can well afford to pay and simply won't.  I don't like collecting money at the best of times.  It's not genteel to ask for money!  I prefer to unobtrusively slip a bill in the back of a design and hope they notice it and cut me a check.  I prefer to have a conversation about the weather with my tenant and hope this is one of the months she feels inclined to pay her rent, in full, sometime within a thirty day period.  This system of collection doesn't work very well and the tenant has decided to take advantage of my delicate sensibilities and stopped paying for her rent and utilities altogether!

Dealing with the legalities of the situation is seriously disturbing my commitment to my word, PEACE!  This is taking more than the one little plaque I painted and hung in my bedroom.  I'll need something on the main floor to reinforce PEACE in my mind.

Joy @ A Vintage Green has a darling set of children's alphabet blocks on a cabinet in her kitchen and uses the blocks to spell out words that matter to her family.  If you click on the name of her blog, you'll see the display right in her banner.

I picked these up at Value Village for $3.99 ~

A little rummaging and I have my word! ~

Those primary colours aren't going to work for me, so I grab my craft paints and turn them black.  The raised letters are simple to highlight in white.  As soon as I walk in my front door, I see these on the high shelf in the dining room.  Sigh.  Ommmmmm - PEACE - ommmmm - PEACE.  I'm in the zone! ~

On a lighter note, my friend Wendy at Her-Ballistic Garden has a fantastic give away of this ~

These pillows are genius!  The heart detaches and you add another embellishment!  They are held on with velcro!  ~

No problem with pillow storage and you can make your own adornments or stick with the five she is including with the pillow.  To see all five click Here.  You don't have to jump through any hoops for this one, just become a member of her blog.

Have a day where you take a deep breath and hum PEACE!
