This is what my hands were doing
yesterday. I still need a little
tweaking here and there but,
Tossed on the
bed, sofa, or a favorite chair...
I think it's a nice reminder
to always
look for it...
create it...
be it...

With Christ ALL things are possible.

Anticipation...waiting for Spring.
Just like the birds, we gather seeds
in hopes of blooming flowers,

in the Spring.
And for my new friends who might not
have traveled back down my pages,
here's one from last March

Food for Thought
hope you have time to pop
over and see the whole post

And for those who just don't tire of viewing pretty dishes...the tables are set and ready
for your arrival at our lovely hostess Susan's Between Naps on the Porch.

Thanks for sharing my Thursday

Well I said I'll believe it when I see it.
O.K. I see it!

Here in southern Texas we say,
"If you don't like the weather,
stick around it'll change."

Yesterday was in the 50's,
today snow,
tomorrow back in the 50's.

It's all good!

Using the back of a little Bible
(it was coming apart anyway)
gave this vintage seed packet a
3-D effect on the flowers
Ready to adorn a basket of
Springtime goodies for a friend.

Little late on my Monday posting but playing catch up after a weekend of travel. So now with laundry in the machine (wouldn't our ancestors love these little boxes that do all the scrubbing!) I can play in blogland.
Happy Sunshine Monday in Texas today
but snow is in the forecast for tomorrow.
I'll believe it when I see it!!!

Sometimes you just have to put those
hiking boots on
and head outdoors.

Victorian Trading Company

Air out those vintage garments...
for a bit of fresh woodsy fragrance.
Take your lover by the hand and lead
him to the river for a romantic
retreat by the river.

Dreamin' in my lacy socks

that are just around
the corner.
