Pleasant Surprises

Sometimes, life brings us pleasant little surprises.  Like when you just happen to go shopping on the day when the store is giving out free samples of peppermint mocha.  :)


Or when the day you visit the Science Museum just happens to be "Star Wars Day."  :)

Supplies: cardstock from Neenah Paper; all decorative paper from Echo Park; stickers, enamel shapes, and flair badge from October Afternoon; thread from Singer; ink from Hero Arts; pen from Foray.

As I mentioned on this scrapbook page, Darth Vader seemed interested in the museum exhibit on Minnesota natural history.  :)


Boba Fett, on the other hand, seemed to like a puppet show about the life cycle of a butterfly.


"Star Wars Day" was actually in February, but I hadn't gotten a chance to share this scrapbook page on my blog until now.  With all the hype surrounding the new Star Wars movie that's coming out soon, this seems like a good time to share this page.


Whether you are doing ordinary things like shopping or special things like visiting a museum, I hope that life will bring you some pleasant little surprises, too.  Linking up with T Stands for Tuesday.

What an awesome post. Free is ALWAYS good. And free with shopping is even better. Love that photo.

I thought the Star Wars photos were very appropriate, because there's so much hype over the new movie. It seems it's just the right time, too.

Thanks for sharing these photos and your free peppermint mocha coffee with us for T this week. Happy Thanksgiving, dear Denise.

Love that coffee cup photo -- that tiny cup is so cute and I'd like a sample too. Happy T Day.

Our store here in town is so tiny they rarely have anything free, but once I did get a free mini banana! Coffee would have been better. The star wars exhibition looks great, thanks for sharing. Have a great week, happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

Oh my, everyone is making me want more and more coffee especially to drink- including this one! Unfortunately my caffeine intake is limited to 1-2 cups a day so I switch to herbal teas after the AM. Sounds like this new Star Wars movie is going to be a big hit. I remember seeing the original at least several times at the movies-way back when:):) Happy T day and a happy Thanksgiving too.

There are little treats throughout our days, I think, but serendipitous Star Wars is a special treat indeed :) Happy T Tuesday!

Why am I never around when they are giving away free coffee ? Great photo and loves all of the Star Wars characters at the museum :)

I bet all the kids were super excited to meet the star wars characters! I probably would have tasted the free coffee even though I prefer tea. As always, you created a beautiful scrapbook page.

I love how much more open the kitchen looks without the "prison bars!"
