Life In The Fast Lane

Life never seems to slow down for me these days!

I finally planted some pansies.
Only to get home and realize they were primroses!
I know the difference, but was in a hurry.
~ Let Heaven and nature sing~

My constant companion!
Lily Bug

A few weeks ago I mentioned that I,
A Cowgirls Grace, Pony Girl, and Loveleigh Treasures
decided we were going to start crafting.

The work has begun!!!
Here are a few of things I have made.

I want to thank June at
"Laughing With Angels"

for the rose inspiration!

You really must read her blog!
I didn't have the magazine she recommended,
so I got creative on my own.

love to add BLING!!!

Old lace doilies and chenille bedspreads.
You can't see it in this picture, but the background is
pink with silver threads running through it.

I've done a lot of soul searching and praying about this
I believe God has his hand out and is guiding us.

~Take time to smell the roses~

lots of lace

We started hitting garage sales and the Goodwill last summer!
We have lots of goodies stashed away.

vintage bottles & music from old hymnal's

~Go confidently in the directions of your dreams~

filling my heart with songs of worship and praise!

button, button, who's got the button!

One of my favorite songs
by Brandon Heath
Give me your eyes for just one second
Give me your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me your love for humanity
Give me your arms for the broken hearted
Ones that are far, beyond my reach.
Give me your heart for the ones forgotten
Give me your eyes so I can see

We have decided to rent a little space in one of the
Antique stores.

glistening! sparkling!

Lots of glitter

~It's A Wonderful Life~

joy; to fill with ecstatic happiness,
pleasure, or satisfaction, to enjoy
great happiness, delight

My Copperpony!
You give me such JOY!

Soul Awakening

It is amazing how one can sit and ponder over all
the things not going the way you want in your life.
A small voice reminds me of all the blessings bestowed upon me.
Write it on your heart that every day is the
best day of the year.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Today I will...
Enjoy the simple things.
Let the things I LOVE be my escape.
Cherish all the wonderful moments and memories.
Fill my life with joy.
Be grateful.
Focus on the positive.
Nurture my soul.
Life whispers...Listen carefully

It is such a comfort to drop the tangles of life

into GOD"S hands and leave them there.

Be Still My Heart

They charm you with their subtle "style,"

they walk tall across the dusty road, they ride beautiful horses.

They chase, they hunt, they are greedy or they are givers.

They have high self esteem or they are wicked creatures.

They are rough, they are tough, they are ready and they

will kill swiftly if they have to.

They played wild west outlaws, notorious gunfighters,

town marshals, bounty hunters or old west farmers.

Western movie actors carried a heroic attitude.

I love them all!!!
Good or bad!

Craft Room

We did it!
Pony Girl, A Cowgirl's Grace,
Loveleigh Treasure's and I have been thinking about
doing some crafting.
So I turned my small den into a little HAVEN for us!
This room is pretty tiny.
7 1/2 x 7 1/2
We have a delightful space!

We have been scouring the Goodwill, 2ND Hand shops,
dollar stores and wherever we can find bargains.
We've been collecting ideas and putting them in notebooks!
Lily Bug is helping!

We have found packages with lots of treasures in them!
We love chenille bedspreads.
old buttons
Lots of glitter and sparkle!!!
Anything shiny.
lost of texture

antique silver lace doilies
The turquoise beads belonged to my grandmother.

We love Vintage LACE!

old furniture
metal sculptures
bird houses

candles and candle sticks
old silverware


This will be our work space.
The table in the background will be our sewing table.
We found folding chairs at the goodwill.

We love things made out of old sheet music.
We found lot's of old music books!

lot's of glassware !
old bottles

table clothes
linen napkins
embroidered pillow cases

Scraps of fabric!
dried flowers



twigs & branches

I think we are gonna have a fun time!
My youngest daughter,Paint Girl from the "Painted Creek" left today

Will you please keep them in your prayers for a safe journey!
Thank You,

Please Mr. Groundhog

Old Groundhog stretched in his leafy bed,
He turned over slowly and then he said,
"I wonder if spring is on the way,
I'll go and check the weather today.
If I see my shadow between eleven and noon,
I then will know that I'm out too soon.
I'll crawl back in bed for six weeks more,
Pull up the warm covers and snore and snore.
But if no shadow gives me a scare,
I know that spring in in the air.
I'll wake my friends and wish them cheer,
With glorious news that spring is here!"
