A Fun thing to do.."

These pictures go with the post below.

An Hgtv home makeover


This was so very enjoyable...to go to an open house.  Right here in our own little corner of the world too!  The bathroom was a gem,done by the 'home & Garden channel guys. The only room I did not like was the living room. It was crowded and just not homey.  I liked the front door, but kind of hate to see old wood painted. The staircase was split...about 6 steps up was a landing, then 6 steps going down to the kitchen, which was 'ikea'. Looking, but darkish...no cabinets and no room for even a small table. I loved the shelf under the dining room window and floral curtains. I love 'homey'. What fun to go through that house...but no way do I think it was worth the asking price of almost 200 grand, it was grand, but not that grand!

A Lazy summer

I have such a blessing at finding yard sale and flea market doilies. I fell in love with this pink one even though it's points are badly damaged.  And....I had the loveliest ruffled pansy and when I looked for it this morning, it was dead !  On the bright side, our cat was taken to get spayed,  only to find out she had already been done.  She is the most loving cat,  and the love an animal gives you is so special! I never realized that before. Oh, the blessings that come to us from the hand of our loving Heavenly Father!  If anything happens to her I think I want another kitty cat, I am so fond of her.  Even my husband has been won over.

The rain and humidity here are wearing.  I have no energy!    I am doing some tatting and enjoying that once again.  I finished a bracelet yesterday.  I am blogging from the couch today, for now anyway.  I have a colonoscopy in my schedule soon.  Now to post a picture if blogger will co-operate.

Along the Path of Life....

 How times change!  Baby shoes nowadays are  little replicas of adult shoes sometimes (maybe these are too?) ....like tennis shoes,  Mary Jane's....(which I have several pair of in my size).  I bought these at a second-hand shop for $5.00,  what sweet things to bring home that day.


 Move over, I was here first!  Hand-made rag dolls always catch my attention.  The craft stores with all the small spaces so charmingly filled by talented vendors call my name so eagerly. =)

And here it is...petunia time again.  I value these lovely flowers for their hardiness and fragile beauty....and did you ever notice how wonderful a perfume they give off?

We have a ground-hog and its offspring devouring our newly planted garden.  What a shame.  My hubby worked so hard getting that garden ready to plant.  Lately,

I have done way more reading than anything else....including knitting.  I was reading Jamie Langston Turner's books the second time around and now that I'm in-between books....well,  I feel lonely in a way.  And torn, whether to start another book or discipline myself to sew or something.  I took a bad fall Saturday night....not really sure how it happened.   You know...one minute you are ok and the next... down and hurting.  Thankfully I didn't break anything but have a huge nasty bruise the size of a dessert plate on my upper leg. And lots of sore muscles.  And tired.

I have watched some of 'Christy' while ironing  yesterday.  Don't you just love that series?  I sure do!  Its a toss up for me over which favorite movie I would put at the top of ' the List' .    Larkrise to Candleford?  Christy?  Sarah Plain & Tall?  Wind at my Back? and more....and if a movie like these has something I don't like included....I just fast forward and zip on by.

I hope where ever you are you are having a sunny day and sunny spirits.  And yes,  I would wish for you.... energy!.  And blessings, that can only come from reading God's word, and taking it into  your heart.  For keeps.

Psalm 16:11 'Thou wilt shew me the path of life: iin thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand are pleasures evermore.'

Knitting again..

These wash cloth patterns are gems, and easy to knit!  The small pink one is supposed to be for makeup removal. The yellow one has a teabag & sugar inside of it, nice to carry in your purse. I want to knit one from cotton.  I found them at simplynotable.com    I am still trying to post from the 'Blogger' app on the ipad and it won't let me type under the picture or add more than one picture at a time.  Puzzling!

A little foal....is born

 What a treat it was when this little one was born. We were coming home from shopping and I noticed ....in the neighbor's pasture....the tiniest little head I ever did see.  And then the struggle to stand up, made this little horse look like a Bambi...legs splayed wide and staggering about once  it finally managed to stand! I went for the camera and hubby got some great shots!  (click on these for a larger picture)



 Blogger isn't working the greatest today.  so I hope I can get these few pictures posted.   Isn't he or she the cutest thing?  Some other horses crowded around the baby and we were worried for its safety.  The Mom kept circling her baby to get between it and other horses,  and she worked it right over to the fence where my husband was watching and taking pictures.  This little guy is probably about 30 minutes old or so.  Notice- he or she has a little goatee.  And its red mane is so pretty, isn't it.


Oh wow!

A French Press for tea!

IIsn't this a pretty little tea maker?  Loose tea or coffee made in a French Press completely mellows the flavor, no bitterness left, not a tinge.  I' loving my French press's.  We were in Ligoner yesterday at the most darling shop, I have a few more pictures to post, but back to my breakfast for now.

Coming attraction!



I am looking forward to seeing at least some of these volunteers from last year!  And I did not know that blogger had an app for blogging on iPads.  Now I can access my camera roll easily when I blog from this iPad.  A very good thing. I find I spend more time on this because it is so portable.  

We started spring revival at church today....good messages!  And, last evening I made 12 pair of earrings, I had wondered if I'd still remember how to make them and they practically made themselves.  Now to get that tatting going.  It's so nice to accomplish things.  That's all of my news for now, hope your day has been full of nice moments.
