BACK TO REALITY!
Wow, seems that the holidays have almost been a blur to some extent. I had all of my Christmas placed away except for some "After Christmas sales" sitting in a bag in a spare room. I am one of those women that after Christmas is when I buy all my ribbons, gift boxes, gift tags, gift bags, gift wrap and tissue paper for the next Christmas. It is a great feeling to walk out to my shed and pull out that BOX and BAM...there it is for another Christmas and I don't have to go out and buy it. However, I have everything put up and away and y'all, I miss my Christmas. But...it's time to move on.
I have about decided I need a TEA ROOM! I just love my teapots and teacups and all that girl stuff.
Speaking of TEA look at this darling Tea Set I found at a wonderful thrift store that I found as well. This will be perfect for having a tea party with the grandgirls. I actually found several cute things while browsing around at several thrift stores. I haven't been thrifting in a while so I
needed wanted to go. When it's in your blood you just can't help it!
I found this cute basket that you can write on with chalk. I will probably spray paint it but for now it's packed away. I plan to remodel a few things in my kitchen and it will be put to good use. As most know we put in all new granite counter tops which I absolutely love! Well, that is until you drop something that will break because I can assure you whatever drops that's breakable will shatter if dropped hard enough! Several new things went into my kitchen but I have some things I won't to redo. The basket will be perfect for my plan.
I love Biscotti jars. This makes my third one that I have been able to find thrifting. If you know anything about Biscotti jars then you know that you can find some inexpensive ones and you can find some that COST! It's rare that you find one at a Thrift store or a yard sale.
You know what they say, "Someones trash is another person's treasure".
I picked up several cute things. I have really got to start thinking about cleaning out my She-Shed and get rid of some things before long. Y'all might need to pray for me! I have a hard time parting with things! LOL!
I did have a few productive days as well. I had so much fresh dill from my little herbs that I was able to share with a friend that loves herbs like me and freeze some for future use.
My husband and I processed meat one day. Yep, I was one tired lady but as long as my freezer holds out I won't starve! Thankful for the blessings that God has given us to enjoy.
My daughter sent me a picture of this cutie in her new Chef outfit playing with her new kitchen things she got for Christmas. I love the cooking shows about as much as I do the Hallmark shows so we might have a little chef in the family. Who knows? Right?
I shared last week that my new word for 2018 was Hope. The Lord never ceases to amaze me at how He can and will use one little word to minister to us or allow us to use that one word to minister to another. Speaking of the word HOPE I humbly ask that you would take just a minute to list up my BIL & SIL (Mike and Lisa) to our Lord I would appreciate it. On Friday of last week they lost their home to a fire. Everyone is safe and the Lord is already blessing. My husband and I have experienced this tragedy and it is a like dealing with a death. So many emotions and so many more to come.
I don't know a whole lot but I know this, OUR HOPE is in Christ and Christ alone. And oh yes, His mercies are new every morning.
Wishing you all a great week as I leave you with with this...just some words that you might need to hear today for whatever reason.
If we do what is right, then God will take care of whatever is wrong.
No matter what the wrong is or who is doing the wrong. No matter whether that wrong is done in words, deeds or thoughts.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
