I’m painting my kitchen cabinets today. I’m reminded of a scripture verse with every stroke of the brush. The end of a matter is better than its beginning, and patience is better than pride. Ecclesiates 7:8 NIV
“May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day. May songbirds serenade you every step along the way. May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that’s always blue. And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.” Irish Blessing What a beautiful blessing on this St. Patty’s Day. […]
We are in another snowy Kentucky weather situation this week. I bundled up and tromped outside in my snow boots to share some bread crumbs and pretzels with my songbird friends. Fresh air!

Here is a quick little project that can repurpose a CAN. Speaking of CAN CANS: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=lK0gYi1YEZ8 I am saving our empty formula cans, as I am sure that they will come in handy for craft storage.

Cheers to happy pumpkin people! And one is a little “cheeky”! This is it for the pumpkin gallery! It’s time to have some pumpkin decorating fun!
Oh, for the love of elegance. Elegance in nature takes my breath away. White pumpkins. Elegance unadorned. I love white pumpkins! They lend themselves to so many decorating variations. Pairing white pumpkins with various objects can change the whole look and the vignette can transform from autumn beach theme, to bejeweled elegance, to dried flower […]
Oh Happy Day! This pumpkin will be painted upon my return to Kentucky (yes, I’m still at the beach) ImMeDiAtEly! Thanks to http://www.feelinglovesome.blogspot.com for the idea! Paint a pumpkin with chalkboard paint. Brilliant! I think I’ll get a box of colored chalk and an Autumn theme bowl to put the chalk in. I can already […]
