Ahh, here are some of the results of my '20 minute' a day efforts. I sewed up these two sofa pillows! I like these so much! I am still smitten with the fabric and the cheerful pink ball trim. I like it sew/so much that we bought me more of the fabric. Now I am perplexed as to what to make with it. I wanted to recover the piano bench but hubby didn't think so. Charming and yes so English, don't you think so? As to the other 20 minute-ers...they are coming along slowly. But, where there's life there's hope...grin.


This bouquet is on the breakfast table for us to enjoy. I love flowers and nothing sets them off like 'baby's breath'...don't you think so too?


Will you join me for breakfast? The Caribou Decaf coffee is delish! I perk it in my little stovetop 4 cup Corning Ware coffee pot, with a spoonful of cinnamon stirred in to the coffee beforehand. I'm really a tea drinker, but do enjoy perking some coffee once in a while. The description on the bag tells us that it is a relaxing balance of savory bittersweet chocolate, earthy and fruity flavors. I love a good description...don't you? Its grabs our attention and turns us toward a treat. We hope!



Would you believe I found this beauty at Walmarts last fall? These lavender layers are just delightful. Violets blooming just on the other side of the glass window in cold February....who could imagine such a thing? Surely not our pioneers and settlers! We are truly blessed with so much, in our time on earth.


See those bunny tracks? I too love the beauty of the snow and the silhouettes and how the Lord created it all. Its a praise moment...all quiet and hushed yet vibrantly alive! This was the first thing I saw when I pulled back the bedroom blinds the other morning. I so enjoyed all of your snow pictures... as I sat on the couch with my machinery...smile.

"Let everything that hath breath praise the LORD, Praise ye the LORD. Psalm 150:6

To answer your question about the library post.
It hads to be in your city library and you use your card. The only one that we can not use is Kindle I don't know if it is something with our library or kindle. Call your library and ask if they are on line.

I loved seeing your gorgeous photos...your pillows are so pretty. I agree that baby's breath makes any flower arrangement so much more beautiful. Hope you have a nice weekend! Karen
