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

My Weekend in Pics !

 Hello Blogging Friends!

I hope things are going well with you all or y'all as we say in the south. 
I went to eat at Chipotle for the first time Saturday.The food was good but it was like eating in an aluminum shed . My granddaughter had told me it was very shiny& the music was loud.

Went grocery shopping at Trader Joe's. My oldest Granddaughter inside a photo prop with their famous squirrel, located outside  the store .

Rose from parking lot .

We passed by a parking lot carnival .I got out and snapped this carousel pic.

Here are some Thrift store finds. 

This is a vintage Fenton button & daisy pattern cobalt blue Top Hat toothpick holder.

Vintage Japanese Yellow Canaries

A Friend Tag I made to surprise a Blogging friend.

  Another thrift find, a cute friends  figurine.

Here are  some yard pics.Things are growing and blooming, but I am not keeping up , I need to work outside more.

 I like the light and shade & different textures in this pic .

 Some pics I took of my youngest  sweetie granddaughter Eliana.

I will leave you with this wonderful Bible verse:

"The Lord is my strength and my shield, my heart leans on him and I am helped. Therefore my heart greatly rejoices,and with my song I will praise him!"

Happy Easter Monday Blogging Friends!,

I have some scenes from my Easter weekend . Here are some bunnies I made for my four sweeties.The pattern came from Allsorts.

A tradition in our family is that my daughter tells the story of Easter via The Resurrection Eggs , The kids participate by opening the eggs.

I will leave you with this Bible verse and a quote:

Even though we were dead because of our sins , He (God) gave us life when He raised Christ from the dead.It is only by God's grace that you are saved!                  Ephesians2:5.

Jesus came to raise the dead . He did not come to teach the teachable; He not come to improve the improvable ; He not come to reform the reformable.  None of these things works.--- Robert Farrar Capon 

 I love this song ,Sweetly Broken  by Jeremy Riddle
