So who is addicted to Pinterest? If you have not found your way over to this site, stop now and check it out! Basically Pinterest is a place to "pin" images found on the web to inspiration boards with a click of a button.

Much like a Lays potato chip, you can't pin just one!
Here is a link to my page if you want to see what all the fuss is about.

This is a little something that recently caught my eye

Drab to Fab Spray Painted Frames

I have been hard at work on a few projects and finally had a minute to sit down long enough to save off the photos. Remember the dining room wall makeover? Well, I took down the brown mirror and replaced it with this!
The mirror was a hand-me-down piece that was just begging for a face lift!

While I was at it, another old empty frame we have had hanging above our bed, was in need of some TLC. 
  Eventually I would like to add a piece of printed burlap in the frame, but that is for another day. For now I much prefer the fresh white coat of paint on this old beauty.

Soulful Sunday: Art Appreciation

(Above image features my Grandma's quilt, which has found a home on my daughters bed) 

Sometimes when I look
At my life
It seems like a homespun
Patch-work quilt...
Quaint, but not quite "together"!
There are bits and pieces of
Cloths and colors,
Scraps of material,
The days of my life...

When you began to put together
The days of my life
You must have know
Where each piece would go...
You've told me that I am
Fearfully and wonderfully
And I believe you, Lord,
I do!
I may not be a velvet tapestry,
But even crazy-quilts
Have purpose,
To give warmth and
Cozy comfort and
Color to a room!

Whatever I am, Lord,
You made me...
And exactly right!

Psalm 139:14
"I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made."
