I love my picker! I tell him my next want on my list and sit back and wait. It sometimes take a few short days or weeks but he finds it and delivers it. Most of the time he finds it for free and it doesn't cost me a thing. I have wanted a large spool for sometime. This one is larger than I thought but am loving so many ideas on pinterest on what I can do with it.
While I am surely not complaining after a week in Hawaii, it sure takes awhile to get rested and start feeling back to normal. You spend weeks before all hyped up getting ready and the anticipation and than come home and say now what? The time change and all the sun made me very tired and drained coming home. I am now starting to get back to normal. We had a birthday party for our son on Sunday he turned 25. I can't believe it. Where has the time gone? Any who just wanted to say hello. Have a great day!

Anne Pettingill's(Pictured left) life was turned upside down in the matter of a few days when doctors discovered Stage 3 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma (Breast Cancer). She will be requiring immediate treatment to stop the growth of the cancerous cells. I have know Anne for several years having had a few lapses in seeing her through the years. We have been getting to share more through instagram and facebook. The thing I know about Anne is how strong her faith is and her love for her family. I have no doubt she will overcome this. Her smile melts you every time you see her. There is a fund set up on facebook for her long term medical bills. She has insurance but as you know it will get very expensive though out it all. If you would like more info I would be glad to share or if you would like to send cards to me and I can pass on that would be great too!
I won a spring fling giveaway on instagram and these lovely yellow pillow covers was one of them. Oh how I love them.
This little tea cup feeder pictured above was from a family friend. I bought one for me and one for my friend Anne. I love them. My friend Heidi who had them just got her son home from the hospital today after several days of him being sick. So glad he is on the mend Heidi. Now get some rest. Prayers for his full recovery.
I had a sick day Thursday and managed to rest but also move a few things around. Sometimes a little change is good!
My granddaughter while singing the song to Frozen helped me the other day move my porch around. She is so cute. I think she did a good job. Don't you? I will be leaving on vacation so will post when I return. Prayers for a safe trip appreciated. Without prayer and faith where would I be? Blessings Pam
So much going on these days! I love my things, trinkets, and treasures. However with that said I have been feeling a little less inspired as of late. Knowing that they are just things that collect dust and can be replaced daily, weekly, monthly. My heart is heavy for so many right now. Family, friends, customers. I could pray all day and never fill like I get to everyone. I want to be the best parent, friend, family member that I can be. Help when I can where ever I can. I am truly blessed by so many and am so very grateful.
With that said I will go on with my treasures. My dished pictured above. Oh how I love vintage of any sort. I just wonder the history behind them, where they came from, who they belonged too. How they got their cracks, chips etc.
My friend Tanya made me this window pictured above. I love how it turned out. I have some amazing friendships as of late that I really treasure.
Scales- What can I say about them. Oh how I love them.. I have a collection of all different sorts. Big and small, plastic and metal, rusty and crusty. They just call my name when I see them.
I love making gifts for people. I made this one for my friend/ sister in law. I wonder sometimes if they like it as much as I do.
Pictured above is a Croquet set. I have no idea why but I love it. It sat at my parents place for well over a year and nobody grabbed it so it came home with me. It is in need of some cleaning. I will treasure it and tuck it away somewhere.
I am participating in an egg carton swap on instagram. Pictured above is what I put together for it. While mine isn't as crafty as some I am hoping that the extra's I added make up for it lol. It is filled with lots of treasures. I cant wait to receive mine and see what it is. Seems I spend more time on instagram than anything else right now. So quick and easy to snap a photo from the phone and post. I had a wonderful Mother's Day with very thoughtful gifts from my children and grandchild. Hope you have a wonderful week. Blessings Pam
Last Friday night, while playing out front of a family members home,
Ryan was hit by a truck and went home to be with Jesus.
It all happened so fast and he was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.
A simple excitement to grab the frisbee that had escaped into the road
was met with a tragic loss.
Alyssa from http://diaryofanaddict.co/red-balloons-ryan/ is a good friend of the family and shared the story on her blog. I have wept tears this week and my mind has been on this little guy for sure. My heart is heavy for the family and pray for their comfort and peace through this tragic accident.
Jacqui (mom to Ryan) asked that a small slice of their story be shared so that they get support, They need us to rally,They needs us to pray,to share,to love,to remember…….. Ryan. Let his loss not be in vain.
I need your help friends. I know you may not know Jacqui, but she needs us now more than ever.Will you unite with me? Will you share her story? Will you offer her comfort?If you could take a moment, if you could take many moments…and not just pray for them,but join me in posting pictures of Ryan on your Facebook, your twitter, your Instagram feeds.Post them that the memory of him can live on.Post them to share in the love they had for their little boy. Alyssa promised her that Ryan would not be forgotten,we can make sure that doesn’t happen.We can use our voices for good.To tell a story,of a little boy who loved life and his family,
who laughed often,who loved to snuggle his mommy and daddy.And to tell the story of two parents who are loving each other strongly and beautifully through this tragedy, through this unexplainable loss.Rest in Peace, Ryan Cruz Saldana 5.2.2014
Again thanks to http://diaryofanaddict.co/red-balloons-ryan/ for sharing and allowing us to share as well. We may not of known him but know we feel the loss as well. God be with you all! Blessings Pam
This past week we have had some high 80's. Record temps going on. Makes me excited for BBQ's, pools, ice cream and bubbles.
Friday May 2nd in the morning Londyn lost her tooth at Teddi's(daycare)! I got a text and picture at work and it made me tear up. I was so excited for her as she has been anticipating it for sometime. We were suppose to have a photo shoot today and couldn't help think oh how it was going to make for great pictures and how for a second wished it would of waited until after lol. We went last evening to Glam up for the photo's. New clothes, shoes, nails painted etc. However the weather turned sour today so postponed until next Saturday.
We go to this place in our local mall and Linda pictured above it such a kind lady. She let Londyn lay on the bed with me while my eyebrows were being waxed. She takes good care of us all.
This is how I found Londyn this morning. She loves looking in the mirror as her missing tooth.
I keep getting pictures from her mommy throughout the day. She truly melts my heart. She stayed with me last night and so the tooth fairy had to come here. She was hoping for gold coins. Guess what the tooth fairy brought! Good thing I had a stash of them.. What a blessing I have been given to be this girls Gammy! Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Blessings Pam
