SIMPLY Wonderful/Teacup Lane!

Good Morning, sweet friends!!

I CANNOT believe that there are only 15 days
until Christmas, but I am plugging along, pacing myself and SIMPLIFYING!!!

Simplifying is definitely the way to go!  I am so into the whole LESS is MORE thing, and putting the emphasis where it belongs…on JESUS and the free gift of salvation He offers to the world. 

This Christmas,if we each just focus on being the hands, feet, and mouths of our loving Savior, I wonder what MAGNIFICENCE would result!!  He can use us to rock this world if we will just listen and obey!  So, what do you say?  LET’S GO INTO THE WORLD TODAY AND SHAKE THINGS UP FOR JESUS!! 


I have to tell you about my new friend, Sandy over at Teacup Lane!!  I visited her blog recently and commented on the wonderful dishcloths she had crocheted.  I loved her blog and followed it.  The next thing I knew she commented on my blog and told me she wanted to make some of her wonderful dishcloths FOR ME!!  What a delightful, thoughtful and kind gesture!!

Here is what arrived in the mail soon after…

Aren’t these just simply delicious?
And she gave me this snowflake, too, which is the very first one she has ever made!!

What a neat pattern!  Oh I forgot to say she even asked me what colors I wanted!  Now is that special or what?

A close-up of the snowflake!  LOVE IT!!!!

It looks lovely on my tree, and fits right in with our vintage ornaments and glass bead garland from my childhood.

Thank you so much, Sandy.  You have no idea how much you blessed my heart!!! 

Please go meet Sandy, sweeties!!  You’ll be glad you did!!

Love to you all!!
Splash the JOY of Jesus all over the place today, ok??

  4. Hi Becky,
    What a sweetie you are to post photos of my gift! Dumb me - I forgot to take pictures before I mailed it. I really had fun making them for you - my new FRIEND! I must tell your readers I don't have patience - if I couldn't sit in front of the TV and crochet, I probably wouldn't do it. It's a nice hobby for those long RV trips we take 'cause I can crochet in the truck as we go down the road. And I love to crochet out on our screened porch (in nice weather). Now I must go back to my Christmas decorating. Oh, I almost forgot, the snowflake looks lovely on your Christmas tree. I've made two more since yours. Have a great day!

  8. Oh Becky what a blessing that surely was...And I loved them as well. Soo pretty. I love crocheted things. My sister's daughter just had a baby and she made several receiving blankets and crocheted around the edges of them all. Made them so special and lovely. Your attitude and love are soo contagious. I am always lifted up when I visit you. I feel like I could dance now. Have a wonderful day!!

    Hugs,

    Debbie
