Rose Blessings

This is a gift I received from a blogger/friend !
Isn't it beautiful ?
I could never do this kind of work.
Can you imagine all the hours that went into it.
I can
I love things like this that add touches of beauty to my home.

These roses were made by Lorena
I won them....way back when...
She too, is very talented.
There are so many talented ladies
out in blogland.  They are inspiring.
I have been blessed !

Glimpse of my Season Tree

This is a glimpse of my
"Season Tree"
I used a punch to make light pink and dark pink snowflakes.
The little strings of hearts are made with stickers strung on quilt thread.
I used a punch for a paper type yo-yo--
Today I am working on my tree a bit...
This stuff will stay on through February.
I am trying to make this simple--fun--
We are enjoying the glow of the lights.

The innocence of children

Awhile back, can't remember when. 
We were at my friend Rose's house.
She showed me a card she had received with the above picture on it.
It is a painting by artist, Kathy Fincher.
Welllllll....we were at what is called "Preachers Delight".
Gracious Christian Living was there and had a table set up.
I was so excited to find this painting matted and framed.
The price was a DEAL. I couldn't refuse and was able to
 purchase one for Rose and myself. I love this painting.
 Haven't you done this with children?  I know I have.
There is a innocence to this painting that I just love.
Gracious Christian Living has a website and you can request a catalog.
You might find something just right for your home.

I miss the glow

I always miss the glow of my tree...
so this year I have decided to try and
keep the glow going...especially
since we have so many months of dark, dreary days.
We got this cheap...at K-mart.
I am thinking I would like to make it a
"Season tree"
Have lots of ideas swirling in my mind.
It's just at the beginning stages right now..
but thought some of you might want to see it...
Lots of potential, is what I see...
