finding my way...

I'm finding that less is more,

Finding my way is harder when I am struggling with my Lupus, thankfully

I find the greatest joy in my true passion of turning the unwanted

into the  sought after.

I am excited to be able to join another week of Cindy's Make it 4 Monday

party, I love Cindy she is simply so real and bursting with talent...

paint, sanding a perfect combo for

frames found that no one wanted

each piece has a story

and a part of my heart

I lose all of my worries when I am working

this old desk was the best 5.00 dollars spent yet

and got me through a really rough last week

I married it with my 2.00 dollar

yard sale chairs that I painted

and recovered with burlap

and as of now has the loves of my heart displayed

never underestimate the will

of a woman with a sander & staple gun

leave no stoned unturned...

Your word is a lamp unto my feet

and a light to my path

Psalms 119:105

the talent is endless at Cindy's

you won't want to miss it

Blessings to you

My Junkin Pumpkin Girl's Vintage Inspiration

Gracie and I are linking up to darling Debra's Vintage Inspiration Friday

"G" loves the gardens at Country Roads or what us dealers call

"the store" so I set my little one free to roam and take photos of what

inspires her and wont SUE get a kick out of what she took photos of...

her first love, these horses

she loved this bird cage and

commented how lovely it would be for

her brother when he is being mean to her

hmmm another reptile favorite

I see she is very inspired by animals

this one had me rolling with laughter

of course she's my girl when she

zeroed in on Sue's Boy Bryce 

industrial piece...

I asked her what would we fill it with

"food for the animals mom"

again a chip off the old block

thought she would have said shoes!

we carried the animal theme over

for "crazy hat" night at Awana

Thank you for all of your prayers and

loving thoughts for my mama

she is resting well after surgery

we should have the reports back

in a few weeks

Happy Vintage Inspiration Friday

sending love to you DEBRA

White Wednesday "in my shoes"

love is patient

love is kind

It does not envy, it does not boast

it is not proud

It is not rude, it is not self seeking

it is not easily angered

it keeps no record of wrongs

Love does not delight in evil

but rejoices in the truth

It always protects

always trusts

always hopes

always perseveres

Love never fails

1 Corinthians 13

And now these three remain




but the greatest of these


Please join our lovely hostess Kathleen

for her beautiful White Wednesday
