I bought a Paul Detleftson print the same way when I was a little older...like when I had a first job. When it was paid off, my Dad went to pick it up with the car....and would you believe?? he decided he liked a different print by Paul D. better, and brought it home and hung it up. I must have finally got up the nerve to protest because he took it back and exchanged it for the one I had paid for. My lands!! He was ornery to say the least.
I'm sorry its taken me so long to update my blog. I hadn't realized time was going by so fast! My sewing machine has broken and I jokingly went to Good Will and told honey I'd call him in if I found a $10 machine. AND I did! an old Singer ...pretty color..yellow and white...but with no foot pedal. And the foot pedal works by air coming through the hose to it. Did you ever?
We ordered said foot pedal from ebay. $19. ouch. Paid $9. for the Singer (thanks to senior discount). My Huskavarna will go to the shop in December....and hopefully the Singer will sing to me while finishing the snap bags for the donations I've promised to make. Hope so!
Hope your day is blessed by the Lord, I know he delights in those who love him back.
Psalms 3:3 But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
My Ryrie study Bible has a footnote that says says the word 'blessed' in the Hebrew means 'Oh, how very happy!' Don't you just love that? Hope you are having a beautiful day.

I've been using little quilts on the coffee table and love them. The mismatched socks were bought that way...for fun! The pocket purse was made by a weaver in SC. And, I love miniature twig chairs. Appreciation is a good thing, even though the day comes when some things must find new homes. Not yet!
Wishing you a blessed Sunday!
'The spacious firmament on high, with all the blue ethereal sky, And spangled heavens, a shining frame,
Their great Original proclaim. The unwearied sun, from day to day, Does his Creator's power display,
And publishes to every land....The work of an Almighty hand.' Joseph Addison 1672-1719

Isaiah 54:17 'No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.'

We've been busy helping out with our school yard sale. Which was gigantic and fun to help unpack things and see what was donated. And it was fun to buy things also of course. Its been a rainy, overcast grey day here. Sunday & Monday the days were fair and we enjoyed the rich foliage as we drove here and there. I've been lazy today but I did cook for us, which I'm glad of. (and I helped hubby make more applesauce) We were able to stay in all day long, out of the drizzle. How I wish for energy to tackle some projects I've started!
Has anyone watched 'The Incredible Dr. Pol'? It is available on netflix. It follows his veterinary practise for more than one season. For the most part, it was So Very enjoyable....getting to see all the different animals that he took care of. He wrote a book about his experiences. I'm waiting to borrow it from my library =). I enjoyed that series very much.
Psalm 19:14 'Let the words of mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength and my redeemer'.

Hope you have a blessed Lord's Day and a nice week. I got a skirt sewed this week and am happy...happy that it fit. Now I want to sew more. You know how it goes, right? Success is the energy that runs the whole train sometimes. Does that make sense? =)
"I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD." Psalm 104:33,34.

Psalm 9:2 I will be glad and rejoice in thee; I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most high.
