Memory Board

On the wall behind my computer I have a memory board which has pinned to it, wonderful letters, cards, gifts, mementoes and treasures from some wonderful friends from all around the world.
It makes me smile and I am thankful that I have met so many beautiful friends.

"I count myself in nothing else so happy
As in a soul rememb'ring my good friends"
~ William Shakespeare

We have eaten our Sunday brunch out on our deck in the sunshine. Apart from it been a little breezy ( still able to wear only a tee shirt ) and having a bee buzzing around trying to get at my breakfast, it was wonderful breathing in the lovely fresh air.

Many thanks for visiting me, with your busy life and leaving a comment and it makes me happy to welcome new followers.
I hope that you are having a lovely weekend.


  1. Hello Carolyn,

    Your memory board is filled with LOVE because you are a lovely lady!!!


  2. Hi Carolyn,
    Your memory board is wonderful and I can imagine gives you happy thoughts everyday.
    Sounds like a perfect morning having breakfast on your deck in the fresh morning air.
    It is HOT here and over 100 degrees again today with no end in sight. I am struggling to keep my flowers healthy.
    Love the William Shakespeare quote.

    Have a wonderful day dear friend.
    Hugs from Texas, Celestina Marie

  13. At some point, when I get some projects done around here, I will have a memory board too. Actually, I might need a few of them. :) Breakfast sounds lovely. There will be no outdoor activities around here for quite some time, but we did enjoy nature while in Nepal, even in the rain! :) Best wishes to you for the week ahead, Tammy

  14. Love your memory board, I have something similar in my kitchen. It is great to be outside and enjoying the fresh air, winter will be upon us all too soon again. so soak it up:)

  29. Your memory board reflects a lot of great memories. So nice you cared enough to keep and post them. More people need to do that.

  30. I love your memory board, Carolyn! I have a memory box but have been thinking of making a board instead. I prefer to have things out in the open so I'm reminded of all of the good times and wonderful people that have come into my life.

    Hope your week is off to a wonderful start! xoxo

  31. Hola dear Carolyn, so good to visit you again after a long time, and hope no one has been injured with the last earthquake at your country.
    It´s so nice to be surrounded by lovely memories...
    hugs dear

  32. Great wall,
    I like such...
    Enjoy your day !


  33. I wish I had the space for a memory board, Carolyn! But I do keep scrapbooks. Have since I was young. I love looking through them. I bet yours is filled with love and friends!

  34. I have a board like that too Carolyn, and it is layers deep with treasured things from friends and family, as well as the odd inspirational find peeking through. I love the busyness of it, and every once in a while something catches my eye and my thoughts wander to the person - happy memories!

  35. Your weather sounds nicer than ours!
    And the memory board is a lovely idea...

  36. Absolutely love your memory boad - how inspiring!!

  37. Dearest Carolyn,

    Wow, finally I am catching up. Wanted to visit those that are loyal to me and even helped me get over my down period. Today I took the Atelvia pill and feel fine. What a difference for not feeling like a rag and having heart burns...
    Have a great week and keep your memory board as a motivation for LIFE!



  38. Like Sassy says your board is filled with Love because you are a lovely lady and friend.
    I too have a broad similar to this near my computer where I can glance at it when I am here writing.
    As always I love my visits with you and your morning breakfast sounded lovely bees and all. lol
    Have a wonderful rest of the week and know this ole Tx grandma is thinking and sending you good thoughts and wishes

  39. Hello Carolyn, That's a fabulous idea you have with the memory board. Being able to look at such lovely cards and gifts from friends you have made while you are at the computer is wonderful.
