This is not a very good picture of the vintage vase my daughter gave me for Christmas, but I am pressing it into service anyway. It has a 'frog' that lifts off the top like a cover. It is so nice for making its own flower arrangement...I'm quite taken with it.
The other picture of the plate stand is a 'favorite find' I found it at our school yard sale. It was only $2.00. You can tell its been around a while but I love it.One of the birds was missing, but my daughter 'scootched' the remaining birds together and you can see it is getting constant use. I think this plate holder is charming! What's one of your favorite gifts this year? Do you have a favorite yard sale item from 2008? Just typing 2008 I get the feeling for sure it really is gone. Its great though that the Lord gives us a brand new day each and every morning. I always liked the quote from Anne of Green Gables....a new day, with no mistakes in it....(yet)grin.
Well, tomorrow is time to go to worship the Lord. My Bible is laying open here and my eyes go to these two verses..."He will swallow up death in victory; and the LORD God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth; for the LORD hath spoken it.
And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation." Isaiah 25:verses 8 and 9.
