Sometimes, i really wish I could say thats true



happy saturday :)

Audrey said...

So true! Though I have to admit - sometimes I think that I would take money over love! I know, I know...but some days, it would just be nice to be able to jump on an airplane and take off to where ever without having to save up for it!
But love is good! Yes indeedy!
Happy weekend dear Renee.
Love to you (I do love you more than money, I must admit!)
xoxoxo

Oops! Desperate Blogger~ said...

Angela Recada said...

This is so true - if only more people felt this way.

I hope you have a lovely day, dear Renee.

Snowbrush said...

Ah, but what if you colored the heart black and made the dollar sign a nice cuddly pink?

lakeviewer said...

No longer a comparison, Renee. Money wins hands down. Only after we lose our hearts, we think about the consequences of our choices.

Re my eyes: No. I do not have cataracts; just a rhetorical problem for most people my age. My husband has had so many health issues that I know it will be just a matter of time when I'm hit. He's just a couple of years ahead of me.

I do hope you're warming up and enjoying the outdoors. Wish your Nathan the best from me. He will love teaching; he'll be tired and worn out and frustrated, but he will love every minute.

Meghann said...

Oh, I love it! I need that plastered on my forehead. I hope you have a warm, sunny day today.
Hugs and prayers my friend,
Meg

Sarah said...

So true! Great image.

Deborah said...

Just stopping by to let you know you are always on my mind and in my heart. Sending you all my love, Deborah

Ces said...

But the heart is bleeding!

Sarah said...

You know what those girls are like-say one thing and mean another. Tell them that summer came to London but has now gone again. Today we have rain and clouds.
I am attempting to paint faces on two dolls I am making and so far they are hilariously bad! My brother and Andy are playing scrabble and watching The Outlaw Josey Wales so we are having quite a cosy day.
Hope summer visits you soon!

Elizabeth said...

so true -- but the heart is bleeding...

Sarah said...

Oh this is cool!! Yes and yes - have lived it is true!! Hope your weekend is going well hon!!!
Love ya, Sarah

Kelly Kilmer said...

What a lovely image and oh how true...

waving hi from La la land.

Angela Recada said...

Yes, our bleeding hearts came up a few weeks ago, but they're fading now. They're so pretty, I wish they'd bloom all summer. Before I started taking flower photos, I never realized how short some of the blooming seasons are for so many things. Now that I know it, I appreciate their beauty even more.

How's the weather in Manitoba? I was born in Alberta, but we moved to Ontario when I was still a baby.

Hugs,

Sarah said...

I have not heard of word scraper. I will look into it then tell Andy. I have to say I am not keen on scrabble-Andy plays it on the computer or with my brother or my mum. I get cross with scrabble-I think because I am not very good at it!

Debbie said...

I love the simplicity and truth in that.

sinnlighet said...

Sensitiv artistic, Yes I like your blogg a lot! Sorry about the bad thing in your life.

Best regards from the Swedish provance...... with the name Ă–sterlen, in the south part of Sweden!! Very nice to meet you!

Mad Texter said...

We are in agreement on this one!

I always hear people profess that money can't buy you happiness. I quite agree with that statement, but with a lot of money you can have fun trying!

Pattee said...

Hearts and money.... hmmm.
I know we need both to live...
I'd take heart over money but then how would I feed my heart? No spinach? No Protein? No watermelon?

There's many ways to feed a heart I know this is true... I know you feed my heart Renee... You've opened me up more than you'll ever know!
Love to you ~Pattee

Strawberry Girl said...

Love, true, beautiful, full love. Is better than money. But ya' gotta eat as well.

(You have a beautiful heart Renee) :0)

Daria said...

Always love the art ...

When I was younger ... my I used to chase that almighty dollar. Of course cancer changed all that.

Now all I need is just enough to get by.

Ces said...

Did you notice that the heart has a tear? It is starting to rend!

Anairam said...

I love it! Is it graffiti? Then I love it even more!

Holly said...

hi Renee - sorry to meet you this way...i love your blog though...thank you for sharing....

A Spoonful Of Sugar said...

So very true Renee - unfortunately a lot of people never seem to get it. Money can't buy you happiness - the bet things in life are the simple things. Enjoy your weekend Renee - we are having another lovely sunny winters day here.

kj said...

duh. even suzie orman says 'people first.' thank god i know this much--where ever else i may be screwed up it's not in the area of love versus money.

i like simple formulas like this, renee. keep em coming please...

ps i am having the best time with mr. ryan. we are laughing non-stop. he is going home with more scratches than he came with--his parents won't like that--but he doesn't mind, and neither do i.

xoxo

Bella Sinclair said...

Aaaaahhhh, yes. Cheap sex. I'd know that sign anywhere.


xoxox

Wendy said...

Quiet yet powerful.

Bella Sinclair said...

The air will smell sweeter? You must be referring to my collection of automobile air fresheners. Thousands of flat pine trees in every color imaginable. Aaaaaaaahhhhh

kj said...

he is beyond good. very very fun, feisty, fantabulous. of course i'm exhausted. and tomorrow when he's delivered back home i will get to spend time with my jessica, which is the best of all.

is your weekend is going okay?

xoxo

Draffin Bears said...

You always have such lovely Artwork to show us.
Thank you.

Wishing you a lovely weekend

Hugs

Marge said...

your images are consistently fabulous. Love and Money. You always want what you don't have. No matter which it is the grass always seems better on the other side.

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

I enjoyed reading your blog today.
I am still finding my way around blogland....
I always love making new friends..

I am posting about Disney so hope you will stop by.
Each comment enters you for the June giveaway.

Chrisy said...

yes...and wouldn't it be nice if we all loved each other so much that nobody had to go without...

Ces said...

So a bleeding, crying heart is greater than money? :)

yoborobo said...

Hi Renee! I was trying to think of a new formula, like "heart is greater than money, but money beats the hell out of nothing", but alas, I am not a mathematically inclined person. Hope you have are having a fabulous weekend, full of love and yes (why not!) some money, too! :) xox

Hey Harriet said...

So very true! If only everybody felt that way though. Love is more powerful than any amount of money :)

Sarah said...

You did tellme you liked the banner thanks! I like it too so it is staying a bit longer than some of the others. I think part of my problem with scrabble is that I never win. I don't think I am a bad loser it's just that I like to win sometimes and I can't!

yoborobo said...

Renee - here's some back atcha - xoxoxoxoxo!!!

Angela Recada said...

Hi Renee,

Your last comments to me: "Angela that is so cool. I didn't know you were a Canadian girl."

Yup! I was born in Canada to German parents, moved to Germany for a while when I was young, and then moved to the US, which has been my home for a long, long time.

I'm a proud German/Canadian/American! I love all three of my homes, and my time in Canada had a big impact on who I am today. I didn't realize just how much until we took our first family vacation to Canada with the kids. I felt so at home again, and it turns out that some of my quirks are just my Canadian childhood showing!
:0)
Hugs,

kj said...

renee, this heart looks strong to me: just a few 'tears' along the way...

happy sunday dear girl.

Sue said...

Yes, a bleeding heart, full of love is still better than money. Both take a lot of work to achieve, however the riches of a full heart far
exceed all the money in the world.

Sheeanna said...

Hey you! Sorry I havent been able to write much. We dont have internet at the new house yet so I can only check these at moms house. The house is great, definitely different since Im used to living with 6 people in a house. We have gotten a decent amount of boxes unpacked and we have a weeks vacation this week to finish the rest. Im glad you liked my drawing, a lot of people thought it was morbid. How are you doing lovely lady? Thank you for being so supportive, I have a smile on my face every time I get a message from you. You are the bestestest! xo

Marie S said...

Happy Sunday.
Wonderful image.
Giant meaning.
Have a wonderful day.

Julie Fillo said...

Renee,
I could not find a way to email you privately, I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed reading your blog this morning and it inspired me so much I wrote about you on my blog. I hope my feeble attempts to brighten your day do. I am no writer, and am not the artist I wish I was, but I just had to say something to you. You are amazing and I felt an immediate kinship as soon as I read a few posts in your blog.I read back through february and will read all of it as soon as I can. I was just responding to people who posted to my blog, and then I was just dumbstruck by you.
I hope you are having a fantastic weekend and thank you for being who you are.

YayaOrchid said...

Yep, that makes sense too! :)
Hope you're having a great weekend Renee!

A Cuban In London said...

The battle, the eternal battle. What a lovely graffitti. Many thanks. Wishing a wonderful Sunday and week.

Greetings from London.

soulbrush said...

lotsa ways to interpret this one...good!

kenflett said...

Renee, thank you for your visit. :)
Your blog is blossoming with beauty and love. you must be feeling it as well.

Ces said...

Yes! Drawing, cleaning, dragging, drawing, cleaning, dragging...what a fabulous weekend. Marie is back, we should grab Bella for a quickie partay before she packs!

rochambeau said...

Interesting Renee! At first glance I was confused, thinking the images were in reverse.

Yes, for me this is true, love for the work I have done, has always equaled just the right amount of money, thankfully!

Hope all is well today.
Love,
Constance

Julie-ann said...

True picture, so simple but so very deep!
Hope you had a great weekend and not to naughty,lol!
Oh if you have to too, then you go girl, do it to your best!
Luv and hugs!

Juie-ann:D

YayaOrchid said...

Renee, I just went back and read back some of the comments section. You asked about the chorizo with potatoes dish. Yes, it is actually considered a breakfast item. But it tastes great for Supper too! Or anytime for that matter.

We did go visit the Grandkids a couple of weeks ago for my oldest GS birthday. I'm sure you know how great it is being a Grandma!!

Marie S said...

I am and I did. I will tell tales.
Thank you so much Renee, I love his teeth too. Wish mine looked that good.
I am so glad to be back and still trying to catch up.

Ces said...

Hahaha! yes, I agree, cheap sex! Hahahaha! See even blogger agrees: cheworm

kj said...

renee, i don't know how or when you end up at some of the archive posts of mine you do, but i always appreciate that you do. it's another way of 'being known', isn't it? i wonder sometimes how much bleeds through even without words, especially with your eagle eyes and wise perceptions...

love you today and always moon sister...

Ribbon said...

Fantastic... that's one of the best pieces of artwork I've seen in a long while.
Well you know what I mean... it instantly takes your breathe away.

thank you & best wishes always
Ribbon

PS & yes I believe the equation to be correct :-)

Sharon said...

Renee, thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving such a beautiful comment about my Miss Gracie. I hope you are feeling better. I enjoyed reading about your darling granddaughter!

Hugs,
Sharon

I think it depends on the time of your life. For me atm it might be the other way around...
