Simple Saturdays ~ Rain & Candlelight



Of all types of lighting,
candlelight is definitely
a favorite...
:)


Cheerful, flickering 
casting dancing shadows 
on all objects near,
candlelight
calms us, relaxes the mind,
and
releases happiness 
into our souls...

Sweet Sundays... My Little Craftroom




Stress relief is always good
and
for me it comes in the form of sewing!



I finally finished
putting on the pleated edging
around the second settee
and
in this photograph
you can see the pleating as I was working on it.


On the left side of the room, there is a big closet
with many shelves storing
little plastic boxes with
broken china, paper ephemera for projects,
bins full of past-used patterns
and
bits of broken china
for future projects.
Upper shelving bins hold faux flowers,
measuring tools
(I have several dressmaker tools such as a French-curve),
empty frames, fabrics for sewing,
and bits and bobs.
;)


This room is kinda small at just 9' x 10',
but it is plenty big on cuteness!
Open shelving stores
floral boxes with memorabilia and photographs
from many years of family life.


The window and back walls are where I work
and play.
:)


The right wall stores large photos from our kids'
sports years,
large photos from various family camps
with our church,
and scouting goodies.


It is a room full of wonderful memories!




Happy Sunday blessings
to you!
I hope you have a wonderful
place to go and create, too.

Rain and Happy Belated 4th!!!!



Happy Belated 4th of July
to you all!
We spent a quiet day here
at home.


This flag was replaced with our
"Stars and Stripes"
on the 4th; however, this is the photo 
I took last week
so...
I'm leading out this week's story with it!
