Double Wide With Farmhouse Style

One of the benefits of blogging
is that you get to make friends all around the world.

Friends like Rhonda
who shared these wonderful
Before / After 
pictures with me. 

I knew you would want to see them too,
so I was HaPpY
when she said I could 

Rhonda says
"I have a husband who "gets me"
and is willing to build whatever I envision"

I'd said they make a pretty good team!

Their kitchen makeover included 
moving the sink to the window
and incorporating a small chest underneath

Didn't they do a GREAT job!

Rhonda envisioned this island
Guess What...He made her vision materialize.

Could anything be more perfect!

Rhonda didn't say ... 
but I have a feeling she refinished this hutch.

I love their style!

Even though we live miles apart ... 
Somehow, I think if we got together
we'd realize we think alike, shop alike and
we'd have a Blast!

Their home is so personal ... so cozy...and warm!

Their Holidays are even special!
Straight out of 
"Country Living" 

Thank You Rhonda for sharing your very special world with us!

You and your husband have taken 
Mobile Home Living
to a whole new level.

Mini Banner for Baby

 I decided that it might be fun to write about this when I was already on my way to the baby shower.

In fact, I took the pictures with my cell phone...while I was at a red light.

Now that's
Last Minute Thinking

 I got the idea from seeing tiny banners like the one above on Pinterest.

I made mine out of wrapping paper  - the handmade kind.

It just happened to be perfect for 
Baby Judah's

This little Mini Banner
wraps all the way around the package
just in case
Judah's Mom wants to tie it to something else.

It was a Fun way to decorate a package...sorry I didn't get better pictures for you.

Sunday Morning - Fullness of Joy

(Photograph edited with PicMonkey)

Psalm 16:11
"You will show me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
At your right hand are pleasures forevermore."

I believe the Holy Spirit 
is the 
Happiest Person I Know 

that HIS joy
can live inside
each of us.

Have a Blessed and Joyful Day!

It's the little things ...

 We rarely have overnight guests,
but when we do
we like to make them feel pampered.

A few basic necessities with a spa like feel

seems to do the trick.

If you've ever stayed with someone and couldn't 
find an extra roll of know 
it's the little things that count.


Yes, you've seen these little crocks on my blog before,
but since it's January and we're 
supposed to be thinking about
organizing right now
I decided to share them again.

I especially like the ones tied with old pieces of Ribbon.

Keep Smiling

I'll try to give you something a little bit more Interesting
Next Time.

Feeling Pampered from the Inside Out

How do you like my new cup?
It was a Christmas gift from myself to myself.  

I especially love the little flower on the handle.
Isn't it cute!
(by the way, I got it in the clearance section at Anthropology)

This little cup and the Word help me start my day off right.

 I feel pampered from the inside out.

Even if you don't have a cup as cute as mine,
you can join me as I read through
this inspiring devotional 
It's worth every minute!

The devotional book and audio will be available free on the Gateway App and 
online at It can also be downloaded from iTunes for $5.99.
