Summer Lollishop Design Team

I am so thrilled to tell you,
I was chosen to be part of the
Summer Design team for Lollishops

The wonderful Miss Sadie
{creature of}
had this great idea to send random things
to the designer and ask them to create
something/anything with these various items!

The items she chose are items that
can be found in her her lollishop

I chose to start with this shadow box frame
that I had sitting here staring at me

I painted it white then shabbied it here and there.
Put pretty PINK paper on the inside,
sewed the vintage card
to pink paper, antiqued the edges

added lace, pearls, flowers, and vintage buttons sprinkled
with german glass glitter, for a teeny bit of sparkle

The wood frame is accented with 2 yoyos made
from vintage fabric pieces and a lace ribbon
topped with a blue ribbon that says "Cherish"

A one of a kind piece created by me for you!
The perfect accent piece for a beachy shabby cottage!
{available for purchase in my Lollishop Boutique}

from the other design team members!

Thank you Miss Sadie this was so much fun!

Still learning

Being a mom to 3 adult children is still a challenge each and everyday!
I want to catch them before they fall,
I want to keep them safe ,
prevent tears and a broken heart,
I want to guide them in the right direction and help them to make the right decisions.
But I have been struggling so much lately!
I have come to accept that I am NOT GOD and I have to put our children in his hands....only he can do the things I am trying to do!
I have to accept things as they are, and just be there after wards.
and know they they will heal and be stronger, and learn from their mistakes!

God ..... grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference!

~ Strength ~ Acceptance ~ Courage ~ Wisdom ~
Bless you dear friend

In my garden

There is a large place
For sentiment

My garden of flowers is also

My garden of thoughts and dreams

The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers,
and the dreams are as beautiful!

God Bless you my dear friend

Comfort zone

After 4 funerals in 2 weeks, {being on the emotional roller coaster,}
it feels so good to be back in my comfort zone!

I don't know about you but......
I don't do well being away from home for long periods.

There truly is no place like home!
I have tons to do but will try to catch up with all my friends as time allows!
God Bless you dear friend!

Rest in Peace

9 am Sunday morning hubbys' dear cousin was found in a ditch still alive after being hit by a drunk driver around 1 am.
The driver apparently was at the same wedding Johnny had attended that evening.
He had struck Johnny with his car, went home and went to sleep, the next morning he called his lawyer to say he had hit someone while driving home the night before!
Johnny did not survive, blunt forced tramma and the cold night had taken his life.
He walks with Jesus now and will always be in our hearts!
The horror of the story is a daughter lost her father,
a mother and father lost their only son on mothers day,
our family and friends are heart broken!
Please don't not drink and drive
please support mothers against drunk drivers!

God Bless dear friend
