BLUE MONDAYS aren't quite so blue when I get a visit from you!
And this message is especially dear
to my heart this year
as I think upon things I count so dear.
I will be wishing that each of my encouraging blogland sisters could share a table with me.
But not being one for mushy sentiment... corny~yes~mushy~not so much, (I'm the clown that keeps the family laughing) I'll just say, "May God so richly bless each and every one of you as you'll gather together for this season of Thanksgiving.
MELLOW YELLOW MONDAYS
And of course Monday should have a MOSAIC loaded with last minute ideas.
My world is wet outside as God waters my thirsty garden. So today I'm looking forward to playing domestic goddess here in my little inside world, cleaning and creating...where ever my mind and mood takes me. Hope you all have a wonderful Friday and don't forget to smile...makes folks curious and sometimes even a little nervous. So I will be dreaming of taking my blog friends by the hand and dancing around in delight...after all we're just little girls inside.
Went up in the attic and brought down my box of saved Christmas cards. Feel free to use this one as you create things to share this coming season of Thankfulness.
Marie Reed is The French Factrice factice = postmistress and hostess of POSTCARD FRIENDSHIP FRIDAY
but oh so lovely. Just a glimpse of some great things offered at ShabbytownUSA.
Still missing all you gals but today I am off to ukulele practice, two different bands where we are dusting off our Christmas music for the Holidays. Last year I wore a big box as I 'danced around the Christmas tree.' The tree is my friend Sandi...Sandi & Candy Rockin' Round the Christmas Tree.
Hope you all have a rockin' Wednesday! Rock, Rock, Rock on over to FADED CHARM for WHITE WEDNESDAY
Latest find at my local thrift store, gold metal shell shape, pretty neat.
Another thrift store find, nice but not old. Black beaded body with a carved metal top.
Now this one is old and has been in the family treasures since...well before my time.
And I'll sneak in this little creation I put together with a trivet from the thrift store, vintage taffeta ribbon, and the picture... my MIL in her early years, what a beauty.
And all these items are on their 2nd Time Around Around my house.
Today I was killing a little time while my son was in Spanish class at his Community College in the big city...Austin. (Dual credit courses for high school and college.)While flipping through the pictures came across this sweet black cat and he just jumped right into my cart.
Have done a little web search which seems promising. Dr. David Kwo was known for his ink paintings in which 'he blended the disciplined art of Chinese calligraphic brush strokes and with Western emphasis on freedom, creativity, and improvisation.' There is mention of a painting of his black cat, Kim which was given to his daughter. I think I have a little more investigation to do...could this be Kim?
Life is so busy around here lately, I am so missing out on blogging and visiting, but hope you have time to check out
The purple mist is in full bloom and the butterflies are putting on quite a show. Monarchs, Queens, Red Admirals, and a host of small winged creatures are in court to honor the occasion.
The Red Admiral sports bars of red across its shoulders.
The monarch is loading up for its migration down into Mexico where it spends the winter.
Clay pots have been on my list all summer in order to build another tower. Had the big one for the bottom and recently found these three for $2 each at a garage sale. What a great deal...already loaded with dirt!
Can't wait for the morning glories and moss rose to put on a show.
My Texas garden has come alive with the cooler temps and refreshing rains.While out in the garden I didn't forget about WHITE WEDNESDAY as I captured these shots. Fall...a great time to be outdoors and A Southern Daydreamer is the place to show off whatever is in your corner of the globe.
