Only One Mother Hundreds of stars in the pretty sky, Hundreds of shells on the shore together, Hundreds of birds that go singing by, Hundreds of lambs in the sunny weather. Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn, Hundreds of bees in the purple clover, Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn, But only one mother the world wide over.

Now, this re-post is very special to me it was my 2nd post that I ever posted and my 1st decorating attempt! So here we go..........
Hey everyone! It is raining here today, not that I am complaining. Thank you Lord! We are in a serious drought here so I do appreciate the blessing!! My husband and I have purchased our home about 3 years ago and just started attempting to do some major decorating. Our first decorating project was our guest room. I really wish I had taken some before pics to show you what it looked like, but I was so excited about this project that I was just ready to start. I had gotten the wrought iron bed from a Goodwill store a couple of months ago in Charleston S.C. Our son lives there with our 2 g-baby's so we go quite often. Anywho, they was having a special that day there that if you filled out a questionnaire you received 50%off your purchase. So, I seen this bed for $50 and knew I had to have it for our new project. Especially when I was getting it for 50% off to $25. I have recently just started getting into the antiquing and prim decorating so I have been going and looking for a lot of items at different places The 3 mirrors I received for 70% off at Peebles (they ended up being $3 a piece) Also at one of our little antique stores here on Main Street I found 4 American homestead pictures for $1 apiece w/o frames. So I attempted my first time of making some distressed frames. I recieved ideas on how to do this from a blogger and really appreciated it!! I went to Walmart and bought 4 $3 wooden picture frames and tada here they are. I am so proud of the way the room has turned out. I know it doesn't compare to a lot of you guys decorating but hey, for my first time I am pretty proud. We still have a little bit more to do in it. My husband is in the middle of building me a shelf that I seen last month in Country Home that I can put my mother-in-laws antique cup and saucers on.Well I dont't know how these pics will turn out because my husband has my camera with him. If they turn out blurry I will re-post them. Hope everyone has a blessed day!!
With the Summer fastly approaching and also berry season upon us(here in South Carolina it will be in the next few weeks!)I wanted to share this delicious recipe with ya'll! So here we go......The following are the ingredient's needed:
1 cup of dairy sour cream
2 Tablespoons of honey
2 Tablespoons of orange juice or grapefruit juice
1/2 cup of strawberries (halved or sliced) or 1 cup of raspberries
1/2 cup of seedless grapes
2 medium peaches or nectarines ( I used my peaches that I canned last summer)
2 small bananas, sliced
Prepare your Honey-Sour Cream Dressing first!
Mix sour cream, honey and orange juice. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour.
While the dressing is refrigerating cut your fruit and mix together in a bowl. You can spoon fruit mixture into lettuce cups and add mint sprigs if you would like (ooo pretty!) Or you can leave it in fruit bowl like I did! Serve with Honey-Sour Cream Dressing and there you have it!
Well I will be linking up to Foodie Friday so go on over to Designs by Gollum -. Hope you all enjoy! Me and dear hubby are going to be taking a much needed break for a few days. Hope you all have a blessed weekend and take care!
Good Mornin' Ya'll!
I am so sorry I was not able to post my To Inspire Tuesday Quote but I have had a "not so good" stomach virus . I won't go into details but I will say that I have never been that sick in about 23 years. It was ROUGH!!
So anyhoo..... I mentioned awhile ago that I needed to make some changes in my decorating. And change has been good. I have been visiting some blogs and have been getting inspirations from some of you and the one who Inspired me in todays post was Dot over atPicket's Place I absolutely love her style!
She had done a tutorial on "No Sew Curtains" and that is my kind of tut! I will try and share the tut on my next post. I am soooo behind on my housework around here. (I have been sick since Sunday) So I need to get my "hiney" in gear! If you can't wait to see the tut just go on over to Dots and check hers out! Without further adoo.......
So, watcha think?I am trying to decorate my kitchen and dining room in white and red. Ooooo, before I forget, the embroidered napkins I hung over the curtains were done by a sweet "Elder Saint of God" in my church, Miss. Lucille. She does some amazing work! And it went so well with my curtains. Also I want to link up to Sues It's A Very Cherry World! -Rednesday so, go over and look at all the other wonderful "Reds" that have linked up!Well thats all for now. Have a blessed day!
Good Morning all!
I hope you all are having a Wonderful day!
I am wanting to try something new on Tuesdays called " To Inspire Tuesdays."
It has been laid on my heart to give some uplifting words of help to maybe someone who may need it that day. Or maybe just to get you thinking and saying Hmmmmm??
If anyone else would like to participate that would be wonderful.
So, my first one I want to share is......
"You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving."
No, I'm sorry it is nothing tasty I am sharing with you today but, a simple gesture that started ny day off just right!
See this beautiful Rose????
This is what I found this morning around 6 when I took my precious "Christmas Present" (more on that at another day) out for his "morning ritual"
I usually wake up and go let him out the front door and while he is doing his "duties" I come to my "puter" and check my emails. Well, it was no different this a.m.
Other than, I came over here and this is what I found. I thought to myself..."AWWWW How Precious is it that my Hubby was thinking of me" So, I immediately take it to the bedroom and my wonderful hubby had just taken a shower and I said " Honey, that was so sweet of you" and I immediately seen the look in his eyes and he said "Uh no!?? Sorry that was not me.My guess is that it would be your son" Well I thought at first that he may be joking but by the look on his face I knew he wasn't. (Of course he stated that if he admitted to it and it gave him some "points" then he would gladly say he did)
Well, I immediately started crying! My baby boy Beau left this on there this morning before he left to go to work. He usually leaves around 5 and I usually hear him but this morning I was SNOOOOZING! So, I didn't hear him.
Needless to say this baby boy is at the Top of my list! LOL Sorry Robbie and Josh.
When he was younger the 2 older boys would always tell him he was at the bottom of the pecking order since he was the youngest. WELL, You are at the top now son! I love you so much!
This is my Baby with his father enjoying themselves at a Miami Dolphin game this past year!
Well I wanted to post a couple of "pretty things" I did around the home this a.m.
I got this idea from Tina Smith over at Cherry Hill Cottage... WOW!! So many ideas. If you get a chance and have not checked out her site please do.. She is such an inspiration. Thanks Tina!
Then I went outside last week and seen my flowers were starting to have buds on them and decided to bring some inside so that would fully bloom. And they did!! LOOK!!! I have been enjoying these blooms for about 5 days now. Aren't they so Springy?? Well, I liked the pic so much I decided to make it my header pic.
Well off to go get supper on. Hope everyone has a blessed day!
I love my Lord Jesus Christ. He is first and foremost in my life.I am 44 and I am married to my best friend Robbie and have been for 26 years now.I have 3 handsome young men as my sons.Also God has blessed me with 2 beautiful grandchildren Anna Rae and Samuel Paul.They are the Love of my life.And if it is his will, the Lord will bless me with many more.
