The (many) Blessings Of Motherhood

 
 
I am blessed to be the mother of 2, a boy and a girl who make my days sweet,  put a smile in my heart and a joy in my soul that is indescribable.
 
They lavished me with gifts today
 
 
 
 
 
      Heart warming cards





 My daughter gave me the Le Creuset carafe for my orange juice, My son gave me a Charming Charlie's gift card.......they both know me so well
 

These 2 are the reason I smile

 
 



   A daughter is a gift from God



 I am blessed to be her friend and Mother
 

 Oh the cards
 

 My son has a sentimental side too
 

 
 My husband always selects such meaningful cards

 My thoughtful and talented sweetheart surprised me with this for Mother's Day! I had mentioned to him that I wanted a Potting Shed and he built this on the side of my "she-shed". I was speechless, he even went to Walmart and bought me some gardening gloves, flower pots and those adorable wire baskets. He knocked it out of the park with this project and best of all.......it was a surprise!
 
 
 
 Everyday is Mother's Day when you are blessed with a loving family....take time to tell them everyday how much they mean to you.

50 Feels So Good !!!

Well I celebrated my BIG 50 this past weekend and oh do I feel BLESSED !!
Here is a picture of me with my princess tiara on.....feeling ever so special.







    I received some loving packages from my dear blog sisters. Patti at Paintin Patti sent these adorable hand made treasures to me
 

 


   The doll she embellished is beyond adorable and she knows how I love chickens.....she made this quilted piece and I have the perfect spot for it.





     A cute "Happy Birthday" banner, Patti is so creative!
 


    A chicken pin cushion..................love it!!!


 
 
I adore hand-made cards.....oh how she knows me. Blog friends are one of a kind.

My friend Deb sent a package to me too.....I am the happiest girl in the world !
 
 

 
I don't know where to begin, just so much  love and birthday blessings.



I love to bake, is this vintage towel the cutest?


B I N G O.............I'm 50 !!




A bluebird charm of happiness



My husband knows what I like and he found this flatware chest at an antique shop



I'm going to paint it white, change out the hardware and use it to store my jewelry. I adore costume jewelry and love to accessorize my outfits so suffice to say, I will fill this beautiful chest.
 

 
It has beautiful bones and awesome dividers in the drawers




Cards mean so much to me, I cherish them and the sentiment they convey
 


 My son bought a sweet concrete bench for my garden and my daughter is taking me out of town for a spa & antiquing weekend........I couldn't ask for more


 
I was princess for a day and I am looking forward to the adventures the 2nd chapter of my life holds.
 
I give God all the glory for my blessings and hold dear the friendships I have made through
blogging.
 
 
 
 
Thank you for visiting.

Room at the Table

 
I spent a little time today setting the table for Easter dinner.
 
Washed my stemware, ironed my linens, gathered some spring décor from my she-shed.

This year dinner will be just the 3 of us.......My husband, my son and me.
 
 

As I was placing the table settings , I thought about who would sit where.

 
I always sit to the left of my husband



Ethan sits to his right......each of us gets a little name card indicating where we will sit

But then I thought, I need to include The One we are honoring on this most holy of days......a day that made all the difference !
 


I set a place at our table for the man who gave His life for me. He hung on a cross on a hill called Calvary, he bled and died so that I may live. I feel that a place at my humble table is the least I can offer the man who loves me in ways that I cannot fully comprehend yet I am forever grateful for.
 
 
 


Its not about the bunny.........rather The Lamb who was slain.

As we celebrate His resurrection it is my prayer that you will draw closer to Him.
 
 

 



Happy Easter

Valentines Day decorations make me smile

 
I love decorating for the seasons, the holidays, the weather, I love decorating for my mood oh heck, I just love displaying things in our home that make me feel good and make my family feel happy.
 
 


   Valentines Day is the perfect opportunity to display all of my red pretties.
 
 
          So many things have been sent to me by my loving blog friends


The vintage vases I have displayed here were found at the Goodwill! OMG I just about fell over when I found these !



The Wee Wisdom booklet is dated February 1949.


This is the buffet in my dining room.....the mirror is NOT crooked, my camera was! LOL

 
  This just makes me happy, do you know what I mean?






   I could play for hours


    A little white wicker end table that I just adore......$5.00 Goodwill score












    Received this in the mail this week from my friend Patti, she is such a special blog sister in The Lord. She blogs at Paintin Patti
 



This figurine was given to me by an elderly friend of mine and I absolutely adore her, see the little bluebird on the candy box?

 
Well I hope you enjoyed my Valentine décor as much as I enjoy displaying it. I appreciate your visit and pray your week is going well !
 
Smiles,
