Hello friends and welcome! Thanks for taking the time to drop by and share a little of my world.
I think that's why blogging has become so special to many of us - when we realize that there are many out there who genuinely show an interest in each other's day to day happenings and events as well as a love of crafting. It's knowing that someone we've never even met in a lot of cases, is willing to pop in for a bit... making time for another person on this earth is one of the nicest gifts to give, at least that's how I feel, so I'm really blessed by all of you who stop by and leave sweet comments - that's priceless to me!
On this Sunday we are having our annual services of Harvest Thanksgiving. The church building is always beautifully decorated with the gifts of fruit and vegetables that people bring.
As I was shopping for some gifts to bring along to church tomorrow, I was so surprised to find Indian Corn for sale. I have never come across this over here before but always admired it in prim fall decorating. I bought some and knew it would look good hanging from my primitive shelf. The colors in it are as good as jewels!!
I did some more decorating with rosehip vines, just tucking some in here and there - now for my persnickety 11 y.o. to say she actually liked what I'd done was a major prim victory to me!!lol!
That's about it as far as 'primming' goes although I have some projects in the pipeline but they'll have to wait for my next post. I've been absorbed in reading quite a bit more than usual.
My niece who's 24 and hopes someday to live in the U.S. or Canada, is now as smitten as I am with the lives of the Amish - she's had to listen to me for the last couple of years LOL! So we've begun our own Amish literature/novel swap when we met up every weekend and I have a hard time setting down any of these books once I start. The last two I read were by Jerry Eicher, who I'd not come across before, but I really enjoyed these two and I'm looking out for others by him.Another project that's on my heart and in my thoughts a lot is some daily Bible reading notes for my Sunday School students - 14 y. o.s. This is going to take up a lot of my time but I feel I need to do this for them - it's a challenge to encourage them to read God's word and learn from it so I'd appreciate your prayers in this.... 'Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly' Colossians 3 v.16. is the key.
I hope to keep up with my prim makedo's etc - love Christmas!
Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy!
