Earth Day &Other Pics

Hi Blogging Friends,
 I am so glad that  you have come to visit!
Sunday was Earth Day,I am not an Earth Worshiper , but I do believe God has called us to be responsible stewards of this amazing planet that we call Home .



Here are 10 relatively painless ways to Love Your Home,Some I thought up , some I have read in various places in the past .
1.Plant a tree
2.Recycle & reuse
3. Wash laundry in cold or warm water
4.Use cruise control on car
5.Bach your errands together,make fewer trips
6.Download software
7. Pay Bills online
8.Shop Online
9. Turn off lights
10.Shop at thrift & second hand  shops


 Earth Day Table Decor 


Earth Day Subway Art by Nothing But Country.


The purple flower(If you know the name please share)was a gift from daughter & son-in-law.It is in a recycled cardboard pot.




Here are some green (haha just in color) thrift store finds I love .






This  is not green, but so cute, I had to share.



This is my April Tag & Page for my Months of the Year TP Album. TP Albums are a wonderful way to recycle and are a great craft for Earth Day.







This is  how the pages start out , there are many tutorials on You Tube and around the internet . I have not made a cover or decided how I will connect the pages yet.

Some Earth Day Cupcakes, they have become an Earth Day tradition.



I also have some Yard Pics .



  Knock out Roses, the easy Rose to grow .

  
Dandelion (weed,flower,herb,your choice )


This flower is from a yard I passed while on a walk.


And I love sky pics. These were taken as I riding along  in car,over the weekend.

Looks like the Lord could step through those clouds at any moment.



I will leave you with these Bible verses :
"To the Lord your God belong the heavens, even the highest heavens, the earth and everything in it ." Deuteronomy10:14


"You shall not pollute the land in which you live..."Numbers35:33

  6. great celebration of Earth Day too. The earth and every thing on it are creations of God and should as such be respected and cared for.
    Do you really have roses already? We are still in the daffodil season.I first thought the blue flowers were lobelia,I planted some yesterday on the terrace, but now I'm really not sure. They are really sweet, and I hope they'll thrive where I have planted them.
    The dandelions are three things in one, weed, herb and flowers. My daughter used to bring them in when she was a little girl and I said they were little suns of spring. Their beauty are beyond discussion, the problem is when they multiply and take over the entire garden. I also use them for herbs in salads and as tea.
    The great sky painter never repeat himself, his canvas is vast and his work amazing.
    Have a wonderful week.

    1. It is about a month early for the roses, May is usually when they bloom. our winter was mild & our spring has mostly been warm.
      I asked my daughter about the plant and she told me , it was printed on the bottom of the pot. And it is "forget -me-nots". I think you were very close ,they do look similar.

  12. First of all...I've been meaning to ask you this, and keep forgetting each time I leave a comment....is that little lamb in your header image made of rice krispie treats? It sure is cute. And if it is...what a concept.

    Okay now to earth day...I like your list. Tho, there is something I disagree with and that's shopping online [yes it saves the earth, but it can back fire. You see, my way of thinking is if you shop online --you're hurting those businesses that want to sell merchandise to keep their company going. By everyone shopping online...we pay no sales tax and then....the streets of a city and infrastructure becomes a nightmare...no funds to keep up the condition of the city, etc. etc. etc. ---and eventually the small businesses are bankrupt and we end up with a 'ghost town']. Just my opinion.

    LOVE the green glass vase that you found at the thrift store. That's my favorite.

    1. I bought the lamb at a thrift store,it is made of a heavy twine ,maybe a macrame twine. :) Shopping online makes sense to me,but you can't buy everything online.If you feel that way , I think you should follow your conscience.I have to pay a sales tax on my internet shopping , either upfront or my state tax return each year.

  16. I think you have the most wonderful posts, always filled with lots of pretties and lots of interesting things.

    I just bought a Cecil Brunner climbing rose. I love this rose so much. Dainty and pale pink. Your table setting is so pretty, I really love the green glass.

    The photos of the blue skies are so beautiful. I think the skies are always gorgeous gray or blue.

    I really enjoyed this post. The scripture was so fitting. Thank you for sharing.

    Hugs

  30. Earth...here we are, for this time and season, but our Eternal Home will be so much better. No tears there and pure love abound.

    I have a little spot on earth and I try to take care of it.

    I recycle all paper and plastic foil, tin, glass anything that can be reused.

    I never litter

    I support thrift stores and buy used clothes, gifts, homewares, anything that makes sense.

    I plant flowers and trees

    I never kill anything on purpose

    I use fabric grocery bags vs. plastic or paper

    I make or buy natural home cleaners as much as possible.

    I pick up litter

    I fight for trees not to be cut

    I feed the birds

    smiling...good food for thought.
