Would you Help Me Encourage My Sweet Friend?

Hello Sweet Friends!!!

How are you all doing? Did you have a good weekend?
I certainly did...I have been a busy girl making my
sweet lil clay roses for 3 huge orders that I have been
so blessed to receive.
The above picture is for a sweet gal in Texas who is
adding these pretties to her jewelry!  When I started
so many years ago I never DREAMED that my clay roses
would embellish jewelry, craft projects and wedding appearal.
The Lord certainly has shown me that I needed to step out of
my comfort zone and he will bless!
Cool huh?

 I am really writing today in hopes of sharing with you my dear friend
Shelly's new venture into the world of selling on-line.
For over 25 years she was an amazing elementary school
teacher.  In January God showed her he had something
fresh and new for her.  She is an amazing seamstress and has
gotten bitten by the creativity bug.

Last week I helped her to set up her 1st Ever Shop on etsy...
 I am hoping YOU my sweet following friends
will be sure to stop by her shop and say hello!

She has so many wonderful goodies to offer and will be adding
and creating more as time goes on.
Be sure to tell her Lorena sent you!

Thanks so much for helping me encourage another
my very creative friend on in her new

Be Blessed

Dearest Bloggy Friends...Hello!

I know I have been MIA from posting and I am soooooo sorry. 

I guess I needed a break and just didn't realize it.  I often think I just don't have any interesting ideas that other would love to see...oh I know, woe is me, im gonna go eat some worms.  Well...yes and know about all that. 

Whats really been going on?  I have been healing from my kidney infection and doing other projects around my home and also took on a huge furniture painting job for a sweet 89 year old gentleman.  I don't think I enjoy painting that many pieces of furniture.  I decided to really concentrate more on
smaller items and painting roses.

I have done some recent tweeking of furniture in my entry (as seen above) and dining area.  Thought you might all enjoy seeing what I have done.  I know I always love to see other peeps decorating ideas.  You never know when a clever idea will be spurned on by yours or some elses' ideas.

We had moved a sofa table in this main entry area during the holidays.  Although it was okay it just didn't feel completely at ease with how it looked.  Then on Friday I was cleaning in my dining room, and realized I had the PERFECT wall for this piece.  It now resides and a side-board in the walk through area around my dining room table.  Truly a *Why didn't I think of this sooner*  idea.

I really am happy with how it all looks now!

I also have a few vingnetts and tweeking I did in some other
areas...hope you will like them.

These next pictures are in my Kitchen/eating area.

Below is the projects that we started in September of replacing
our patio slider with French Doors.  It was a DREAM of mine to
have since we moved into our home 19 years ago.  It took longer
than we had hoped to finish but they are so nice to have now.
Still need to paint the trim and wall...but at least they are in.
Man was this a hard picture to do...all the southern exposure
makes it hard to get a good picture!

Now I am off to gather supplies for a huge order I received
over the weekend for my sweet *Tea Rose Spoons*.

Thanks for stopping by...I DO love your comments!

Be Blessed,
