The Letter H

I have seen so many ways to make letter emblems, so I went ahead and made one for our lovely sleeping courters! I had some extra fabric from our local thrift store, and some Elmer's fabric glue to get the job done. With a nicely cut letter H, it makes for a beautiful framed emblem! Great project for a Saturday:)

precious finds

Today was a beautiful day here in Glendive :) I just had to get out and walk around the nostalgic town. Of coarse I stopped at the infamous Attic (local thrift store) and found these precious items. a. Two lovely books, 25 cents each! They make for a great vintage look when stacked on a table or shelf. b. A lovely sunflower mug, 25 cents. Great for a spring morning coffee. c. Daisy Yellow mug 25 cents. There is something rewarding about finding things that speak to you, and express who you are. I feel these precious finds do just that :) Love on someone today :)

Record Deal

Hellooooo Saturday! Oh how i've waited for this lovely day to come! I find precious moments usually happen for us on Saturday mornings :) My favorite one so far this morning was when Trev decided to bring coffee to me in bed! But to our surprise, before we could even take a sip, we sat down our cups on the nightstand and all of a sudden the whole nightstand came plummeting down, and coffee went flying everywhere! All over the bed, the long white curtains draped over our window, and all over our lovely carpet. Naturally we went running for the Shout, and thank the Lord after being thrown into the wash right away, we now have clean carpet, white sheets and drapes again. Id say that was a precious moment with a whole new twist!

Now to the records! At the lovely Attic ( the sweetest thrift shop ever ) they had tons and tons of records for $0.25 each! When on a budget, these vintage record covers make for an awesome wall mural! I picked a few out that spoke to my taste, used small thin nails to pin them up, and went my merry way arranging! The end result was better than what I expected, and to think it all only cost $4.25!

Have a beautiful Saturday!

Nothing like going out for a stroll and getting some fresh air with the ones you love :) There is this rustic old bridge in our town, and it is wide open free to roam! It was a windy windy day to our surprise, so we didn't stay out for long. It is amazing to see as we go through this new season the little things like taking a walk become so special and memorable. Small town or big town, you can have a good time wherever you go! I hope you have an amazing week:) Spring is coming soon!

I spy

Good morning beautiful souls! It is a lovely crispy Saturday morning here in Glendive, MT. There is something so peaceful about weekend mornings, hanging out with your loved ones, relaxing, having no pressing demands. I thought some lovely photos of objects that are around our apartment would be fun to share. Photo props to my hubs ;) I spy: The Imitation Of Christ Book, Trev's slippers, basket of yarn, AE bead necklace, framed cloth wall art, Tozer book- The Knowledge of the Holy, framed record covers.

She likes pie

Today this was my mission. I put on some pandora and I whipped up 3 amazing banana cream pies for a super bowl party we're going to later on today. I think when they see that I made 3 pies instead of one, they will have to think, "she must like pie!" I realized banana cream pie could be for the most part pretty healthy if you use sugar free pudding, and cool whip. Oh yes! And, if you find a graham cracker pie crust instead of a flour based one. Today is a glorious day :) It is a beautiful 47 degrees out! I hope you have a wonderful, restful Sunday! GO PATRIOTS!
