We've had a restful Sunday here. The messages at church were excellent food for thought and self-examination. I'm really pleased with the good start on decorating for Christmas...just think, only 21 more days till Christmas. If I count down until our daughter and her family get home its only 11 days! I've got to get started on some baking pretty soon. Thanks to each of you who left me a comment over the week-end....I enjoyed your company as you stopped by.*smile*. This is a picture of our sideboard...which was such a treasure of a find for us years ago. We stopped in a very small store to look at a flute for our daughter and this lovely piece was for sale for only $45.00. What a happy day and a lot of hard work refinishing it! "Strength and honor are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come" Proverbs 31:25. May we remember this truth day by day and let our hearts be encouraged in the midst of the work and rest cycle. Posted by Picasa

Oh Maggie.. it's beautiful!!! Aren't the pieces of furniture you have to work for (or on) always the most precious though? When my kids were old enough not to need pushchairs and prams anymore, I sold them, and used the money to buy my sideboard.. that needed to be sanded down, and stained, and varnished etc etc.. but I just love it now!

Oh.. and work?????? Me?????? I'm laughing out loud at that one! If you saw me today, my friend, you'd think I was having more fun playing!!!!!! :o)
