I am a lover of all things old. Rusty things, vintage things, broken old things, found things, thrift store buys, anything I remember from my childhood, and things I saw at my Gran's house when I was little. I love using them in old ways as they were intended or sometimes new altered and mosaic ways, as long as they are not thrown away. I am a country living and loving woman. I love Jesus, my husband, my kids, my grandkids, my family, my dogs, my cats and my chickens, ducks, and rabbit. Gardening is my summer love and long summer days in the yard under the shade tree with my sisters and the breeze blowing. Ahhhh. Life is good.

Pinterest Love

I have been spending a large amount of time on Pinterest. I am so amazed at what I see on there. There are so many crafty people. It really stirs my imagination. I have several family members who are hooked too. We have quite a few conversations now that start "Have you seen (fill in here) on Pinterest?" I think it's wearing me out, so the other day I thought I will spend one day without Pinterest. I was having withdrawals. Ha Ha.....So if you can't find me anywhere else, just look on Pinterest. I'll be there hanging around. Until later, be blessed.

Happy Thanksgiving

Time has passed and once again Thanksgiving is here. I want to take this moment to say how very blessed and thankful I am. In this world it seems overly easy to moan and complain about even the smallest things. But we just need to take the time every day of our lives to be thankful for something, and to be quiet and not complain. I think when we groan we make too much noise to really hear the voice of God in our lives. And so I write this today for myself  just as much as anybody else to remind me to be still, be quiet, and to be thankful....for everything. Yes, I AM BLESSED.

May you all be blessed also.
