Over the weekend I had some quiet time to listen to wonderful uplifting ministry on our Christian radio station and have a little fun with silk flowers. And, yes, for those of you with excellent memories, I was once again attacked by the hot glue gun and bear the fresh blisters to prove it!
Are you hungry? I've just pulled another batch of maple leaf shaped tea biscuits out of the oven and there is soup simmering on the stove. I enjoy making food fun for our family - even if it is just tea biscuits!
The Rooster Family will be looking over our shoulders as we eat,
but don't worry, they are quite tame!
I call this my '30 second' center piece! A tray, 3 candles, a bunch of buckeye and hickory nuts picked up from the ground, and a packages of paper leaves! What could be simpler? The children have re-arranged them a few times already! They have found the nuts to come in handy for math problems! Imagine that!
Have I shown you our 'prayer rocks'? We 'borrowed' the idea from Kelli at The Sparrows Nest who 'borrowed' it from someone else! That's what happens with good ideas! We were always loosing, or accidentally recycling our printed prayer list, so this is ideal. Mum found the cute container at Hobby Lobby and the river rocks are from the dollar store. We use a super fine sharpie marker to write the names on, and everyone picks 2 or 3 each meal to pray for. The children just love this and it is helping to develop their prayer life, as well as making them more sensitive to the needs of others.
Speaking of the children, their happy faces greet you at the front door.
I've added a vintage postcard and a few 'fall' touches to my 'favorite things' collection here. This old black dresser is quite the painted lady and lends itself to odd little curiosities. I love the old books, spectacles and gloves, and those shoe stretchers make me smile!
Well, thank you so much for stopping by! I'd love to show you more, but Blogger is having trouble just now, and this has taken way too much time to download as it is! I really enjoyed my time with you though, and I hope you did too!
