where it belongs.....

one more day before the door opens here at Mustard Seed for our Country Neighbors tour ..... the shop has been slightly revamped ..... more room behind the counter (finally)  & my sweet addition is the chair i sat in as a little girl , at Granny's store ...........
     when i was in sixth grade ..... Mom & Daddy built our new house ...... Mom & Gran surprised me when i got off the bus...... i was given this special chair & they had made curtains  , & covered the chair to match .......i still have pieces of that purple fabric.....
      hoping my sweet grands will sit in it and feel the special love & memories it holds ....... it is exactly where it belongs ...... behind the counter with my "store owner" inspiration from Granny May ...... sweet memories!
  
.................,. i am blessed !

because of this......

because of this ...... 
i can sleep with my windows open ......
listen to the sweet singing of birds ......
watch the first awakenings of the lightening bugs .....
& watch the Memorial Day fireworks in our little town , from my bedroom window ......
 

i am so blessed!

the lace still remains.....

in the recent redo of the craftroom.....
the tiny remnants of lace remain .....
occasionally i think we just need to slow down & look at the "design" of our life ..... 
we are woven into fine intricate little details ...... just like these bits of lace ...... hoping my life shows the " fine details & my lace remains......."
 
.................. i am blessed !

when it all falls in place.....

it has taken me WEEKS to pull this craft room/office together ..... i have enjoyed the transformation of a place that is truly me ..... i am being honest too when i confess to you all .... i probably will still mess up the entire house when i craft projects ..... that's just me & i have chosen to embrace & accept it !!! 

 and my Mom is always close by to cheer me on ..... my best friend .... my cheerleader!
i can hear her in my times of discouragement .... " you just have to come up with a better mousetrap"
 

................................... i am blessed !

as the sun fades......

yesterday as the sun started to fade ........ i reflected on an ordinary day ...... turned in to a blessed day ...... church ... the grocery .... finishing up projects .....  and my heart was just overwhelmed with gratitude in the ordinary ..... 

i am blessed!!!!

it's about this.......

let's face it ......... there are sweet memories of bonnets.... little lace dresses ...... Easter baskets & hunting eggs .... and those memories are precious & priceless ........ but ........... it's about this ......
" then came the morning ......."
 
.................. i am blessed !

we just have days......

sometimes we just have days .... you know what I mean ..... the ones where we just struggle !    
days where whatever we choose to do just seems to be the wrong decisions ......
i have chosen lately to scatter seeds ........ but these tiny little seeds can , at times be challenging !
thankful that at that very last moment .......  scattering becomes easier !
 

..................... i am blessed!
