Easter Pink and Purple

I have the Easter Baskets (buckets) done and waiting for Sunday.


This year I have a theme, we are going on a cruise  in July so a lot of the contents in the bucket is beach related. Both girls have flip flops in purple--their favorite color. Both have suntan spray, lip balm for the sun and diving goggles.  Their egg for their Easter Tree collection, a gift card for Sonic and Easter candy all in a sand bucket.











Looking forward to a great Easter Service tomorrow and a yummy family dinner!!

They Nailed It


ABC WEDNESDAY - LETTER N

We have lived in our neighborhood for 35 years and this telephone pole has been here the entire time.  When I drove by this pole I noticed ALL of the nails that have been used over the years to advertise yard sales.  Thought is was a really unique photo.






Wonder how many there are??

Main thing

We have arrived at the letter M for ABC WEDNESDAY and my entry is "THE MAIN THING".

A famous quote from Stephen Covey.


Do you struggle with keeping what is most important in your life your main focus?  I think all of us suffer somewhat with this.

And I don't think we only have one main thing either.  Our pastor has preached over the past 30 years with this emphasis.

"THE FIVE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS IN LIFE"

In this order:

1.  God
2.  Spouse
3.  Children/grandchildren
4.  Local church
5.  Your work/retirement

I really try to live by this and make my life mean something, not go by everyday without a purpose. I have invested many hours attending to all of these principles.

Spring Wreath

This week I made a new spring wreath for our front door. I have several burlap wreaths I have made and sometimes just redecorate for each season.

I purchased a little birdhouse for $3.00 at Dollar General and some spring sprigs and added a few stems I had already.




There are small tips of PINKS here and there.



MAY LIFE GIVE YOU THE HAPPINESS YOU GIVE OTHERS--my message to you from my little birdhouse.

Loving Cup

Today I'm sharing a Loving Cup that I purchased a few weeks ago on a bidding site on the internet.  It was badly tarnished and I secured it for $20.00

Loving Cup is a large ornamental wine vessel usually made of silver and having two handles.  Sometimes they are a large vessel given as an award for a special event.

The original meaning comes from a ceremonial drinking vessel from 1812.
At weddings people would share it and it symbolized friendship and unity.

Here is the picture of the cup when I first recieved it in the mail.


After a considerable amount of elbow grease and a container of tarnish remover, it now looks really nice.




I have seen them used several ways in decorating, using them in your studio with art brushes, in the kitchen for wooden spoons or several grouped in a beautiful display.


I added some silk hydrangeas for now but I'm sure I will end up moving it many spots in my house.




The inscription says "FAREWELL SALLY LYNDE McCORMICK, WIVES
                                                               3-68 to 11-69"
I'm not sure if it is 1968 or 1868!!


Have no earthy idea what that could be, any ideas?
