This morning was cool and the world was waking when I left for work.  I was greeted by birds singing and a cow in a nearby pasture mooed as if to say “good morning”. 


I was greeted by frogs this morning, just singing away.  On my way to work I saw one of the prettiest sunrises I’ve seen in a very long time.  I was so excited about it, I called home, woke David up (not meaning to) and asked him to take a picture for me.  

This week has just been full of beautiful skies.

Fall is in the air and I’m feeling it for sure as is evident of late.  This time of year is when my mind is in overdrive on quilting, sewing and crafty projects.

I plan on decorating the inside of home for Autumn this weekend.

One last thing before I go.  I want to share with you a garage sale find.  Friday, one of the ladies I work with was having a garage sale with her mom and grandparents.  She and her mom love to scrapbook and they decided it was time to cull some stuff out.   Here’s what I found.

  1. set of six glass Christmas ornaments
  2. scrapbook magazine
  3. two albums
  4. two packs scrapbook papers
  5. pack of autumn leaves
  6. two packs of decorative ribbon
  7. two packs of rub off decorations

All items, except the magazine and the ornaments, were unopened packages.

total cost = $10  I thought that was a good find.

Blessings come in all types of ways. You just have to take time to notice.  🙂

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
