I am so blessed!
And as I have been trying to save
money for our trip to Anaheim,
I have not been spending any money
that did not need to be spent.
And God is constantly reminding me
that HE loves me!
I LOVE fresh flowers.
And sometimes, I like to buy a few.
No fresh flowers have been purchased lately,
and yet my new neighbor surprised me with
these gorgeous Hydrangeas from her garden!
They smell beautiful and are so gorgeous !
I have been working hard to sew
out of totally enormous and
totally embarrassing fabric stash.
I have only been purchasing things when I have
nothing that can even remotely be substituted.
But today, in the mail,
I received a package from a sewing friend
and inside was this GORGEOUS fabric!
I have never seen such a beautiful print!
Thank you so much Hettie Lynn!
You blessed me so much today!
I am doing my dead-level-best to stay
away from Starbucks.
That place can eat up the bucks and add
calories with terrifying ease.
And I prefer Peet's Coffee anyway!
So, I have been making my own iced coffee!
You know I love Mary Engelbreit, right?
Well, when I was working
at the furniture store,
while waiting for Ahnalin,
I ordered these cannisters.
This was at least 6 years ago!
I was saving them for when we were
finally in our own house.
I had forgotten about them!
But I found them when we were
going through some boxes in our garage!!!!!
Aren't they wonderful?
I am CRAZY IN LOVE with them!!
I also found this.
I had hooked this rug while waiting
for Ahnalin too.
I never bound the edges,
but other than that,
it was finished.
So, I finished the binding
and now Ahnalin has a new rug to match her room!
And look what bloomed
in my teeny tiny garden spot this morning.
So bright and happy!
Every good perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights,
who does not change like shifting shadows.

So, how have you been blessed this week?
