Aged To Perfection

Flowers from my daughter's wedding which was held more than 2 years ago.
The faded rose petals, over time, have aged to perfection.

I added the flowers along with touches of white lace to a wreath I had made.
The book pages of the wreath, with the passage of time, have yellowed and are aged to perfection.

I recently relocated the wreath within my home and added an old frame.
The frame is fragile and not perfect. Just aged to perfection.

I would like to think that as I become older...
I am wiser, more patient, and have a gentler nature...
aged to perfection.

Yes I Am!

My daughter just announced that she is expecting!

Yes, I am going to be a grandmother! I am very excited and so ready for it!
My daughter told me during their stay with us over Thanksgiving.

It was a very special holiday this year and I feel very blessed.

Happy Thanksgiving

This is an especially busy week for me so I thought I'd better pop in and wish you all a 
Happy Thanksgiving!

I promise to share some of my projects after all the hustle and bustle settles down around here.
Family is here staying the week and I'll be hosting on the big day.
This will be interesting to say the least as I'm a vegetarian fixing a turkey!

I am so thankful for my family and friends, including all of you who take the time to visit me.
I appreciate all of you and your wonderful comments.
May you all have many reasons to be thankful this beautiful season!

Blessings to all this Thanksgiving!

First of all, I'd like to thank all the new followers here. It amazes me that I haven't blogged for quite awhile and some pickin' cool people find me anyway and wait patiently for me to make an appearance. So here I am. Taking a break from all the projects I've been working on.

It has been beautiful here! In the 70's in November! So when the muscles begin to ache midday, I get a cup of tea and my constant companion, Kit Kat, to go outside and sit on the bench overlooking the lake. Such a perfect setting!

Oh, do you want to see why I really need that break? Take a look at this!

Total chaos. I don't do well with chaos. Makes me crazy!
But 'it' is starting to all come together...thank goodness. And that makes me smile.

And the view of the lake. That definitely makes me smile!

Hookin' up with Outdoor Wednesday.
Until next time...

Good Day To Paint

Beautiful morning. This is the view from my deck.

Then the rain came. That's okay as I had planned to paint the kitchen today.
It wasn't in my original plan, but my updating has taken on a life of its own.
Totally out of control and taking some time.
Hope to wrap it up soon.
I'll be back to visit everyone after...
painting, staining, sawing, hammering, and whatever else it takes!

Until then...
My pickin' best,
