Wedding bells are soon to ring for two young friends of ours! This old-fashioned postcard tells the happy story, doesn't it? I'm sorry to be so very behind with blogging. Its sort of a different life with my husband home all the time, but to tell you the truth....I love it!

I'm still enjoying making stained glass pieces. Wish I had time to post what I'm up too, but its getting late. We had a busy day shopping the thrift shops today. I came home with books (of course!) and a puzzle..that is a map of the U.S. A pair of mint green pjays. The movie, 'that darn cat'. plus others, hmmm, one was 'the secret garden' and oh yes, Cinderella for only 25 cents. 4 of the darlingest dessert dishes too. I should have grouped this up and clicked a picture for the blog in case anyone comes by to visit.

I saw the most gorgeous red and orange maple leaves today, they were breath-taking! When I opened the car door to get out, they were filling the curbside with their beauty and I hurriedly picked up a few and tossed them onto the front seat. My husband just sighed but I couldn't help myself. What treasures....God's own handiwork. I hope you are having a good fall. There are times when so many heartaches come to many of us. Sometimes I just thank my God for these days of 'sameness'...and rest from trials.

"The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork." Psalm 19:1 Bye for now!

What a fun day thrifting with your husband you have described! And such treasures! The stained glass projects sound so intriguing--I think I would enjoy learning to do that. Especially the soldering. Tee Hee! If I don't have enough projects to keep me busy!
Glad you solved your picture program-that's usually the way it goes for me too--something simple.
I know just what you mean about the leaves--I always can see God's beauty, greatness and loving kindness in His marvelous Creation!
Have a wonderful weekend, Maggie Ann!
Blessings and Love to you,
Claudia O.

you know, that is probably why i haven't been online as much ... leo hasn't been napping as much (we've been reducing his meds - slowy) and so i have his company for most of the day ... plus our condo is open area, my computer is open to the living room and where leo & the cat are - so we chat and i don't really get the time to concentrate on my blog or even visit others ...

seasons of change ...

sending you big ((hugs))

Very cute card! Congratulations to the happy couple. It's nice that you and your husband enjoy your time at home together. I enjoy it when my husband is home, too. (Most of the time!) :) Have a terrific week. Karen
