Happy Halloween


My husband brought these gourds home to decorate for work.  He came up with the idea of Mr Penguin with a bomb (from Batman movie), and I did the decorating. What a super fun project to do together!

A fast-moving thunderstorm rolled into the desert this afternoon.¬† At one point, it rained so hard that you couldn’t see across the street!

Of course it’s always fun to dance in the rain!

This rainy afternoon calls for hot potato soup.

I’m going to be posting pictures from nature every Sunday.¬† Would you like to join me?¬† Read¬†THIS post, and then link back to me!

Oma’s Sunrise

My Oma’s favorite time of day was Sunrise.¬† She’s¬†the one that taught me how to sew, how to love, how to be fun, how to dote on loved ones…¬† It’s hard to sum up all she has done for me.¬† She lived life to it’s fullest and passed away this morning with this sunrise.¬† I love you Oma.¬† I’m going to miss you.¬† You were the best Oma in the entire world.

Love Letters from God

As I sit here on this hot Sunday, I feel grateful for the beauty we enjoy every day.   I especially love sunsets and find myself drawn the the glorious colors each sunset creates in the sky.

I believe that the beauty we have here on Earth can NOT be a mistake. Only one thing makes sence… It was created.¬† So, I’ve decided to start posting a picture from nature every Sunday to celebrate the goodness that God created to show us the love he has for each of his heavenly children.

I would be more than happy to have you join me in posting inspirational pictures from nature each Sunday.¬† Just respond to this post telling me that you’ve participated so I can come see your picture. ‚̧

For the Boy

I did a custom order¬†of two blankets for a baby boy today in which the woman that purchased them told me ”¬†I can’t tell you how long I’ve looked for nice blankets like these. Thank you very much! ~Amy~”

Good thing I had this sweet lace that looks like tatting!  Creating these blankets made me think about how many baby boys are out there, and I started wondering how many parents would like a sweet heirloom outfit for their wee little man.
