what...what

I made a few changes to the entryway table.  I added a little more color with this pretty pitcher my other sweet sister in law gave me for my birthday.  I love it even more now. 



Okay...funny story.  I often wonder if my husband notices when I change things around at home.  I just want to tell you, he does.  Do you remember when I shared the new quote I put on the entryway chalkboard?


He asked me if I had read it and what it meant.  Thinking he was up for some great philosophical conversation on the virtues of gratitude and being content and thankful, I assured him that I had indeed read it and thought it was a wonderful way to live our lives.

He smiled and said, "Hmmm...I think you need to go back and really read what it says."  So I obliged him and went back and read it out loud to him.

Gratitude turns what we have into enough.

"Are you sure that's what it says?  Really read it."



Do you see it?

Gratitude turns what what we have into enough.

Obviously, we busted out laughing especially when I told him I had shared the board on my blog! 

Ahhhhh, sweet perfection.  I am so glad it's not expected or required of me.  I would much rather laugh at my mistakes than cry over my imperfections any day.

Still giggling...

xo, Patty

  2. Patty.. that is so funny :)

    I guess I'm not very observant... I never noticed the double 'what' before.

    Love the combination of yellow and greens.. so cheerful.

    Have a wonderful day !!

  5. Isn't it wonderful how the brain skips over the inconsequential things to get to the meaning of that wonderful quote. :)

  6. This is hilarious! I even copied and printed the picture for I wanted to put the saying on my blackboard. I never noticed the what what. Oh does our mind play tricks on us.
    Love your entry table with the touch of color. Still laughing also!

  15. What a pretty vignette!

    I didn't catch the mistake right away & I consider myself observant. Oh well, so much for that!

  17. I love what you did..and that is too funny on your hubby. When I had finished painting my dryer and washer I sent a pic to my son..he text back, Mom you have a misspelled word on there...I was horrified and I wasn't in the house to see if it was true...luckily it wasn't....laughter is great, even when laughing at ourselves

  20. I didn't notice the double what either. When I changed the name of my blog to Grandma Barb, I had it spelled wrong for several weeks until Karen at My Little Home and Garden mentioned it. No one else did. I don't know if they missed it or were just being polite.

  23. I kept reading it over and over and couldn't see what was wrong, not until you told us.
    I love "what" it says even with the mistake. Your entryway is so sweet and welcoming.

  24. I, too, didn't notice it! Doesn't the eye easily interpret what is there into what we know it means.....or something ! (Just woken up & still tired!) we had a calendar from a well known oil distributor on our kitchen wall for at least 6 months before one of our kids said " mum have you seen there are 3 p's in the word suppplies?" Loved your jugs too! Joan

  25. Wow, I didn't notice it either! Seems our eyes compensate for what we see. Interesting, he is very observant...Watch out!

  26. Hi PATTY,
    The table looks so pretty. Did you paint it yellow? I didn't used to like yellow all that much, but I find as I get older I really like it. Such a HAPPY color.
    I read the sign three times and didn't get it, the what what. Isn't that funny? Surprised your husband noticed, I could move our couch into the front yard Richard wouldn't notice. He always tells me everything looks nice but I think he says that to keep himself out of trouble In case there was something he was suspose to notice. HA.
