A Hunting We Will Go!

Well this week was a long one! I found a new church to go to. This was our second week and today's message was just as great if not better than last weeks! We are learning fan or follower
and what does your cross weigh? We learned that just cause we are not wielding a gigantic wooden cross
doesn't mean that we don't carry something around with us daily! And that there is a difference to being a fan or follower.... The songs that we sing pour out from the depths of some that move you when you least expect it...
You look around and see the true heart and love that some expose there letting it release and to be free its beautiful... (the singing is my favorite part!) I'm so happy when I go there and sing and clap and hear others lend a thought that just mat lead you to a way to let go of what you just cant seem to find a answer to!
After the time has pasted I take the kids to Goodwill for some time to find a treasure! It's our down time and we try to spend the day with each other! This is what I found with help all for a Dollar (the items that you see are around 4 dollars a piece but cause they have a white sticker they are only .50 cents and that's just for the day and clothes only!!!) They are all name brand and new no stains nor are they slightly used! yah us!
 The place mats are 6 for a dollar and well a much needed touch of spring please so I snagged these what a steal! Think that they are going to look great in the new dining room at the new house yah us again!! Plus they are my favorite colors pink and sage green!
 This is a glass vase that I saw and couldn't put it back it was also a dollar and said A Prayer To Our Mother
Of Perpetual Help so that I may gift my late brother a gift  for his spot of worship! I'm collecting things to make a curio cabinet of things that we have left to us to help remember the ones who are leading a life with GOD! Again a .99 cent deal!
 This is a hanger for .99 cents that I couldn't leave behind. I'm going to make a kissing ball for the seasons to hang inside the curio cabinet! (like the place mats do you? Or the Valentines Day roses for me!)
 This is to cute I also snagged this for the cashier thought that it was a grey 1/2 sticker so the 1.99 turned into a .99 center! yeah me and the doors work! The picture show a coffee for sale a .5cents boy if that were true i'd be in my glory at dunk-ins! Did you see the pig? He was a .99 center! My kitchen is to be all farm animals!
 This really is grey and was really only a dollar it was a clock but the arms are gone ? Didn't see that until I got home but still worthy of hanging on the wall I bet any one notices? Cute the family prayer and all! Did I mention its cast iron? whoop whoop!!
 All put away and ready for work thank you for stopping in I loved today and I hope that you had a treasure filled day and found strength and relief !!
Thought for this post is and I quote!!! Where ever you are in this world you are never alone to travel the lord will be at your side to hold you carry you drag you if he has to but never never alone!!! njoy!

My Daughter Miss Taylor

Here is a picture that I wanted to share with my followers of my daughter Taylor this photo (Taylor is on the left I on the right) to me is perfect she has just turned 15 this past week!!! I wanted to show a example of hard work determination and well love plain and true pure and sometimes loud!!! This photo cost me nothing and I will treasure it forever for it is priceless to me......
Thought for this craft is.... Print, Frame love it forever!!!!!

Sunday, February 5, 2012

This is why I continue to smile think I shall print and put in frame by the bathroom sink so every time we girls continue to put another layer of make up on we shall note that the real reason we are putting it on is only cause its fun cause anyone who knows you will for sure adore you with out it all! God Bless..............
Thought for this idea... Ever wake up late and wonder how your going to apply it all in seconds? Well ask a teenager who slept through the alarm!!! And then tell them that make up should be the last thing on their mind and watch a sleepy girl whip her head around and turn into a speed racer wheeling grunts and tears of panic and you wonder how it got to be!!! 
Take time to remind the fairest of hearts that beauty is inside not out!!!

How BIG yet so small!

Each morning the sun shines through my window and I hate the thought that I have to cover it up with curtains since the house is clean and well .... decorated to show and then I Googled window treatments and thought pay (yeah.... right) I'm looking for sewing my own ideas! And then these came along swinging! I have similar bottles that were a huge thing about 5 years ago they were perfume bottles and well I've done all that I can do with them and packed it away for a emergency decorating issue! (Box contains what was, what might and what could be yes a secret 50 pound box that says "careful heirlooms!" on the side so when I 'am in need of moving it they meaning the kids take caution) well come the spring of the year and they shall come to rise again and hang in the sun..... Shinning beauty into the house once more!!!

Thought for this craft is...... What was once put away will always come back for return, bigger better and most wonderful. Have fun with this I shall wait until the new house to do this but what do I do for screws?
