Old Bottles

Have you ever gone to a Flea Market looking for something specific, and actually found it?

 I only ask that because, when I'm looking for something specific, 
that's a sure sign I won't find it ... or not in my price range anyway.

That being said...the day I went looking for these old bottles turned out to be a good day.  
I found them all in one place and they were a third of the price I had planned to pay.

They were there ... just waiting for Me!

I can imagine all kinds of things I'll do with them...
 although, I like looking at them just like this.

 It doesn't take much to make me happy.

(and I make sure I tell Buzz how lucky he is every day)

I have a feeling these old bottles came from
place just like this.

Which in my mind, makes them even better!

Hope you have a good day 
find a little happiness too!

Thank You Christina
for including my Paperweights
in your feature

You've made me feel like a Star!

Now it's time to party...
Hope you'll come along!

Stand Still - Job 37:14

Help me see You in all things
Help me hear Your whispers

 Help me listen as You teach me
Help me honor and revere You

If you love old embroidered pieces as much as I do, 
you'll understand how difficult it is to let them go.

With a box full of old
Table Cloths
And even a Bed Spread
I decided it was time to
(some of it anyway)

I made Paperweights

Yes, I finally broke down and actually cut some of them up!  
It was a little bit hard for me at first, but I'm over it now.

They were fun to make, and at least the old embroidery is 
Out Of The Box!


How did I do it?

I purchased some paperweights from my craft store's clearance bin
replaced their paper backing with my embroidered pieces 
(which had been mounted onto acid free mat board) 

Simple as that!

Garden Shed

Not your typical Garden Shed
it'll do!
Buzz had picked up old fencing hoping to recycle it into our garden shed. 
As you can see, we were able to use a lot of it.
Our work bench is 95% recycled wood

bits and pieces of Garden Stuff
(stuff is what we call it anyway)
a little red bird house for our lizard 
(we've seen him going in and coming out a few times)
 recycled crates & pallets for storage 

and a little red, white & blue

I didn't show you our containers for potting soil,  
and Buzz's kitchen, where he makes compost tea.

Maybe next time!

Since this is our first year to use our little shed, 
we'll have a lot of tweaking to do. 
I'll keep you posted!

In the mean time, we're so looking forward to 
Spring Time!

How about You?

My Little Valentine - Cloche

Do you ever post something, just so you can go to a party?

that's why I'm posting 
"My Little Valentine"
 I want to go to
Marty's Cloche Party
(they're so much fun)

"My Little Valentine"
She isn't old, and this isn't the first time she's been in a cloche,


but, if she could, I think she would tell you
how HaPpY she is with her 

s t r i n g 

Thank You Marty 
for hosting another one of your
Cloche Parties

This cloche I put together for Marty's party last Summer
is still in my Living Room today.
She inspired me...Yes she did!

Botanicals - A Decoupage Project

 Are you ready for Spring?

 We Sure Are!

Buzz has planted lots of bulbs that we're anxious to see in a few weeks, 
while we're waiting we decided it was time for 
 Another Decoupage Project

With scraps of cedar from a fencing project we'd done earlier last year,

and botanical graphics from "The Graphics Fairy" 
we were off and running!

 I used the same decoupaging technique 
that I had used on my "Spring Banner" (here)

then, Buzz took it one step further

by adding twig frames.

Aren't they the cutest!

My favorite frame in on the Lavender 

My favorite botanicals are the Ferns

Scripture & a Snapshot - Psalm 139:7-10

For our God is a consuming fire.   Hebrews 12:29

8. If I ascend into heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. 

9. If I take the wings of the morning,
And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,

10. Even there Your hand shall lead me,
And Your right hand shall hold me.

Valentine Pennant

Piglet:  "How do you spell love?"
Pooh:  "You don't spell it, You feel it." 

I just love the way Winnie the Pooh thinks.

Feeling Love is what makes Valentine's Day so special.
Stop and think about it for a minute 
"think it over ... think it under"
quoting pooh

Then find a way to show how you feel...

like I did for this FuN Couple
who will be celebrating their
first anniversary on
"Valentines Day"

Need a little more info on how I made this banner?
Just visit my fb page 

Now for a Special Word of Thanks
Jann Olson 
author of 
for featuring my 
"Bee Mine" and "Love" Banners 
on day six of her 
Made my Heart Sing!

I'm partying with these Blogging Communities this week
... you should come along too.
