The God of all comfort.....

Taking it easy, and reading lots of good books.  I just finished reading 'Miracle in a Dry Season' by Sarah Loudin Thomas.  Absolutely loved it!! And, am just starting 'The Magnolia Story' by Chip and Joanna Gaines.  How special is that?!

Wishing you a blessed Sunday, and finding comfort in God for every trial. 'In the LORD put I my trust...' Psalm 11;1

'Post It' flag bookmarkers....

 'Post It' flag bookmarkers are what I use all the time, even in my Bible.  I have never had them pull lift off any print....though I am very careful on Bible pages.  I can't begin to tell you how handy these are!

And always handy!  Last night hubby and I ....via 'you tube'  watched old tv shows of 'Whats my Line'.  If you can't find anything decent to watch on tv, I'd like to recommend 'Whats my Line?'  It is loads of fun and I believe it ran for about 10 years....1958 or so on.  They always have a guest celebrity that has to be guessed.  Its a lot of fun =)  I uploaded an episode on the previous post from You Tube.

And if you have Dish Network for a tv provider.....and your husband and  you enjoy old 082-00 often has 5 or so back to back episodes of Roy Rodgers and 'The Lone Ranger'in late afternoon or early evening.   =)

'Fairy' Lights.....

My friend gave me this strand of Fairy Lights...and I love them!  You can set them to fade in and out....or put them on a timer as easy as  pie. The globes work the same way with the timer..but they twinkle all the time.  QVC shopping channel or online  are where these can be purchased.  Just love'm.

Crab Apple Tree clothesline

This tree helps me out now and again.  I don't  have a hang skirts on the tree and they dry in a jiffy.  and...they look so pretty blowing in the breeze. Maybe this is a new take on 'hang to dry'. =)

I am starting to crochet...(which I haven't done in years!)  I had kept an old Workbasket magazine with a 'walnut' stitch afghan in it that appealed to me.  After getting the hang of the stitch, I am ready to start.  I couldn't really afford the softer yarn I wanted, but ....I did get the right colors.  Heres hoping I'll stick with this  project....I need to  focus on crocheting again....I've not been doing anything but reading good books which I love to do.  You Tube has a wealth of how-to's which I think are so wonderful...and a huge help.

Sweet Paul...

If you ever come across a copy of this is fabulous!  I found this copy at the Good Will store for 25 cents. It is chock full of  yummy recipes and very cool craft ideas.  I think Amazon has some of his magazines....maybe you could get a peek inside one or two.  I was thrilled with the ones I got.  'Sweet Paul'  Paul Lowe who has the online magazine with a printed one quarterly. Super special!

Strawberry Plate Day....

 I had recently commented that I just couldn't grow roses like this....and this potted rose burst forth in all its gorgeous glory, with a wonderful fragrance! How I am enjoying it. Four blooms so far and breath. Could this be brought inside for the winter?

 Celebrating my dear friend's Birthday.  We always get together for a tea party on her Birthday and mine, oh what fun we had!!

Is there ever any more beautiful dishes than 'Johnston Brothers of England' make!  This strawberry design is to the moon.

A pretty apron!

 Isn't this a pretty thing?  This apron is reversible and has been made by a 83 year old lady recently.  My husband insists they said she was 93 years old. I don't have a good memory but whichever age she is....this is stellar!  I loved it.

I wanted you to see this clever pocket. Quite large and the way it is like a pocket on top of a pocket. Or...2 pockets in one pocket.  The reverse side has two pockets also.  I think it is just  so nice.
