A 'cheery cherry' garden marker in the making.
Another piece my hubby soldered for me. I don't enjoy soldering but I sure can cut out and grind and foil like mad. Its not hard at all...and so interesting picking out the glass and seeing how it all comes out. It is messy and a good bit of work. Well worth it though!
I have been trying to learn how to make origami folded swans. Its harder than I thought! When we were in NC recently I bought this mobile of little origami elephants which I am enjoying very much. Just the slightest motion will set them spinning. I'm smitten just a little, can you tell? Its so charming.
My 'Iris' bowl...very special to me. My Mom and her Mom used to work in a glass factory that made these. So, this is a collectible for all three of us. I'm the only one left of the three of us just now...grin.
I've been reading the lady detective books by Alexander McCall Smith...right now I'm reading 'The Good Husband of Zebra Drive' and even though I'm only on page 16 I've smiled a great deal. Marie....however do I pronounce 'Mma'? In my mind I keep saying 'mama'
Today was the Lord's Day and we had a precious time of worship services. I'm so glad we are called apart to focus on God 3 times a week and give him the glory and adoration of our hearts. And I'm so glad he is so compassionate and faithful to us. Our children's verse for the morning was Psalm 145:8 "The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion." Our Bible lesson was all about Ruth and Boaz. How Ruth had compassion and love for Naomi her mother-in-law...and Boaz inquired about Ruth and had compassion for her and eventually love. What a grand story...and to think, it happened just the way God tells it. And God has such love and compassion for us. wow! I'm so glad I asked the Lord to forgive me of my sins and save me forever more.
