"Let us come boldly to the very throne of God and stay there to receive
His mercy and find grace to help us in our times of need."
|My favorite...a basket of potatoes hanging from the wall.|
|A lacy valance....and a pretty bowl.|
|Lights and oversized ornaments hanging in her studio.|
|A crystal hanging from a pretty valance.|
|An old glass light globe....perfect for a tealight!|
Love that birdhouse too!
|Another favorite...a lacy window treatment, held in place by stones! So clever!|
|A branch over the window in her studio holds|
many ornaments & trinkets from friends...including me!
|A pretty wreath that Tisha found at one of the numerous wonderful shops in her area.|
|Teacups hanging from a beam...I love the contrast of the rugged wood and the fragile china.|
|Charlotte "posing" with Grandpa before her party (May 5th) began.|
|See Pascal, the chameleon? He's a clue to the theme of Charlotte's party.|
|It's a "Tangled" party. I love the cake Katie made! |
She got the idea on Pinterest.
|Family friend, Regina, offered to braid hair at the party. That made some little girls very happy!|
|Charlotte insisted on being barefoot...'cause "Rapunzel doesn't wear shoes!"|
|A fun game...."tangling" some of the Dads in crepe paper hair!!|
|Kevin looks happy to have escaped a role in this game.|
|Lanterns are a special part of the "Tangled" story. There were a lot of them hanging about, |
and the little girls got to decorate their own as well.
|One blow....and all the candles were out!|
|Love this cake!!|
|Momma and Daddy got Charlotte a bike. She'll be wearing her helmut in the future.|
|Gramma and Grandpa got her a doctor coat. |
Her name is on the pocket under her hand
She wore the coat to the hospital when she visitied Lulu!
|What a good uncle....poor guy, his birthday has never been the same |
since Charlotte, "the birthday stealer", came along!!
|The past two years has seen a lot of stuff added to this room, and my current sorting has taken a toll on the |
"everything in it's place" plan.
|As I sort through this space I'm trying to move (into the new space) only the things I plan to keep. |
That makes for slow progress. But I have managed to get through all my fabric, old sweaters, lace,
linens, and baby clothes...that's what's piled up here.
|The shelving unit that used to be here, has already been moved to the new room. Now I |
can pile stuff here until I decide where it needs to go.
|I honestly feel like this is going to take forever!|
|Here's the new spot. It's in the basement, and that window well offers the only natural light. |
We had two nice, bright light fixtures installed, plus I have some fun lamps that I'll be scattering about.
|About that window well....I was working in this room Saturday night. I kept hearing a little thump |
on the window. Yep...toads! Oh joy! I love company while I'm creating.
|There's that shelving unit from upstairs. I'm going to make this corner one of the spaces I store supplies. |
You can see the back of a dresser that used to be in my living room (it has the crate sitting on it).
The dresser has three really nice, deep drawers in it. Great storage potential!
|This end is not quite finished. We're putting in some "butcher block" counter top, and some track lighting. |
Curtains will cover the lower cabinets, and two shelves go into each of the side units on top of the counter.
