From somebody's trash to my treasure. I like to re-style & re-create what was once a cast off. Isn't that what Jesus does with us?

Summer Looks Good on You

Greetings my Dear Friends --
We are in full Summer Celebration here. The girls finished school April 30th and it's been nothing but relaxation, utter laziness and sheer, sunshiny bliss. Need I say more?
I have been blessed this season to be surrounded by so many wonderful blooms. My next door neighbor has been a regular supplier of lilacs and rhododendrons. I am always so cheered to walk into a room with a vessel full of flowers. It just does something for me.

I've been changing up some areas in my sun room. I thought I would share some vignettes with you today! It's mostly pictures, so sit back and enjoy.

This little patio area is just outside our sun room door. It's so fun to watch the kids riding their bicycles in the drive with the birds chirping crazily above on phone lines. I think they enjoy the view too.
Enjoy the summer rays!!
Until next time,

Eye Candy

Happy Hump Day Friends!
If you are like me, a little eye candy can go a long way to getting me through what might be otherwise a tough week.
If your week is taking some unexpected twists and turns, remember who to call on: Jesus!
Don't try to "clean up" and then cry out to Him. Cry out to HIM just as you are. Just where you are! Tell Him how you feel. Lay it all on Him.
He's waiting to hear from you. 
 Thanks to my sweet friend Kandi for these pictures. We had a wonderful time together along with my sister in Lucketts, VA recently.  Love you girlies!!

What Every Girl Needs

Hello Friends -- 

I bought this new mixer on sale at Walmart.
It’s not anything special.
In fact it was the cheapest one I could find. 
Mixers don’t need to be pretty for me. Just functional. 
I was contemplating throwing away the beaters to my previous hand mixer. (It overheated when I was mixing too many rectangles of cream cheese at once. SEVEN IN ALL! Note to self: don’t blend more than three cream cheese blocks at a time) HA!

Then as I whipped up a batch of chocolate chip cookies today and then a batch of whoopee pies, I realized what every girl needs. TWO SETS OF BEATERS!  One for the chocolate chip cookies and one for the whoopee pies.
Of course I could have washed the one set and then used it again for the whoopee pies.
 I could have.
But I didn’t. 
That’s when I realized two sets of beaters make a girl’s life a lot easier. Have you ever been there? 

So that was my AHA moment for the day. I will always have two sets of beaters on hand. HA!
I would love to hear of any AHA moments you’ve had lately.
