Earth laughs in flowers... Ralph Waldo Emerson

A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell.

Eye Candy!!!











I just had to share this with ya’ll! This is the work of my sweet friend Sonya! I have been blogging with Sonya since she started her GORGEOUS blog a few months ago! She does the most stunning work…I am in love with her brave use of color and mix of fabrics! I am always telling her I wish she had been around when we built our house to encourage me towards her level of courage. I love color but I tend towards playing it a little too safe! She sews…she paints and creates the most wonderful goodies…as you can tell from the pics! You simply MUST visit her site! BEYOND THE SCREEN DOOR!!! Even her blog name is darling! Stop by and say hello…you will be thrilled you did;)!

I hope you all are having a wonderful week!

Lots of Love!

The second...candles...aren't the jars love love! They smell delicious...pineapple ginger cake...YUMMY!

Sometime it's the little things that make us happy;)!

It's a Barn Chick Party!!!

I'm late again! It's kind of funny since I am never late in real life...just in blog life;)! I am joining sweet Karen at Brayton Homestead Interiors for her Barn Chicks party. Most of you that know me well know that I have a slight obsession with living in a cottage in the country. For a while we toyed with the idea of building a little cottage in Fredericksburg,Texas. While we were in the planning stages we took some pics of places that we wanted to replicate...vintage barns and homesteads that pepper the landscape of the hill country. I thought these would be perfect for today.

Be sure and visit Karen and the other"chicks" to see all of the goings on;)!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Lots of Love!!!

Sunday Blessings!!!

Sunday Garden

Never lose an opportunity for seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God's handwriting, a

wayside sacrament.

Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of

His blessing.

Hi everyone! I have been a little MIA this week due to some computer issues! I am currently

blogging on my kids computer…they are thrilled;)! I will be visiting you all and trying to catch

up over the next couple of days…please forgive me!

Now…on to the fun stuff! I am partying today with the darling Marty at A Stroll Through Life!

She is having another wonderful cloche party…too fun! Believe it or not I have very few

cloches as you can tell from the photos…I am working on remedying this but for now this is

it! The one with the bunny is from my favorite store in Fredericksburg, Texas and the other

one is from a darling shop here in Dallas called Sample House! I hope you can see the design

in the pics…it really is cute! The cake dome is…you guessed it…MacKenzie Childs. I know…

you’re shocked;)! It is one of my favorite pieces…I thought it looked pretty with the cloches so

I just threw it in for good measure…sssshhhh don’t tell anyone;)!

I hope everyone had a wonderful week! I will be around to say HI as soon as I can! Don’t

forget to stop by the party and say hello!

Lots of Love!!!
