I am on my soap box!
Last night we were robbed!
This post is for the person that broke into my house when I was not at home.
Get a job!
A real one, one that requires you to get up every morning and leave your house.
One that you have to work at, so that you feel good about yourself when you get your paycheck. A feeling that you worked for your money and deserved every penny. Then take that money home and pay your bills. And buy nice things for you and your family. Get on your knees each day and thank God for what he has allowed you to have.
Pray for the person that will come into your home, and go through your things, tossing them here and there. Taking what he wants. Things that you and you husband has worked to have.
And then feel safe in your house again.
I can't pray for you, not now.
I am still to angry.
It will come,
I know it will but not today.

Happy Birthday Dear Daughter
You was such a funny, cute and adorable little girly girl.
Then came school and I lost my girly girl.

My girly girl has started to come back.

You have always been impatient.
If Daddy couldn't get to what you wanted done, when you wanted it done
you would at least try to do it yourself.
No girly girl here.

Today you are 30
You have 3 boys and don't have a lot of time to be a girl.
But you are
Beautiful and happy
that's all that matters.
I love you!

It's Thursday and you know what that means...... you got it.....Thrifty Thursday!
So go on over to this blog and check out every one's thrifty finds.
As I remember my grandparents, I remember that they used everything to the last bit of potential.
My love for the beach and it's rewards is kinda like that.
I want to use my found treasures in a unique way, so I can enjoy them a little longer.
So I brought home this sea shell with a hole in it and glued my #1 grandson's pic in it.
I display this on my cake plate pedestal, when not in use.
Along with a bottle ( from the thrift store) containing a note.
Nice little display if I may say so my self.
I know you don't have a cake under that dome all the time, so create you a little hidden treasure.
Happy Thursday

Another Closing ?
( Google image)
I found out last week that a Church in our community would be no more.
The Tabernacle Church in Locust Fork would merge with The Turning Point church,
because of lack of members.
This church is over 100 years old.
It has always ( in my lifetime) been Tabernacle.
Because Tabernacle is the same denomination as my church,
As a young child we would be ask to join in on plays, and special events.
I remember this fondly.
In a time when people are losing jobs, families are losing homes, and money is as tight as bark on a tree,
I was naive in thinking the churches was safe.
As I googled Church Closing I was amazed that there was 9,450,000 hits.
Where do we go in a time of need
if our church's close?
My church, is my safe place.
I feel protected in Church.
What do you think?

Don't walk but run on over to Leigh's Blog for more Thrifty Thursday

My entry today is a item I had been looking for.
I could find the bag but not the cart.
So when I found them both on Monday, I knew they were mine.
I have been wanting one to put my garden tool in.
We keep them in the basement and I make 50 trips back and forth
when I am working in the yard.

Thrifty Thursday

First off, I too had a hard time coming up with a subject this week.
So I took my camera and strolled around the house and outside as well. Then I saw this pitcher. I have several. They have so many purposes. This one is holding my gardening tools, I have one that I put flowers in, one that holds kitchen utensils and another that I water my plants with. They are less than a dollar at the thrift store and have multi uses. So next time you hit the thrift stores, think outside the box. Re -purpose and re- use is the name of the game. I am planning a junkin trip for Monday, can't wait to see what new treasures I can come up with.

I enjoy creating!

Don't you?

But I have question,

What do you do with them after you have enjoyed them for awhile?
I just hang them to the ceiling and admire them alittle longer.
I can't toss them out, I give some away, but not everyone has the same taste I do.
I have boxes full and this only one wall in my studio.
I am up for suggestions.
Have a happy day!

Yesterday was a good mail day.
I got this book, I had been waiting for, my new spring issue of Creating Keepsakes.
I tried to wait .......
and wait......
and wait......
not to look at it.
I have so much I need to be doing to prepare for the Ironing Board Smorgasbord.
But as I was trying to print a few items, I saw it, staring me down.
So I had to peek.
I shrieked with excitement
I drooled
I couldn't put it down.
I love it gals.
I do so enjoy the re-use of old junk.
And these girls have it going on.
