It's a Wonderful Life!

Good morning sweet friends!!

Oh how I have been missing you all! 
I simply haven't had time to blog! 
Everything is a bit nutty around here,
but going well!!
Thank You, Lord!!

I am telling you what...never in my wildest imaginations
would I have EVER known the amazing blessings
that would be bestowed upon me through this thing called


I have made some incredible friends, had the privilege
of praying for you all, have laughed with you, cried with you,
learned from you...I could literally go on and on!

My life has been quite hectic lately, and when I got the
mail a few days ago, there was a delightful surprise from
my friend Liesa at Life By George!
She knows my love for birds, and enclosed 2 lovely
birdy things, including a plate with these on it!

Thank you dear friend!  What a joyful blessing and
encouragement you are!


I have, over the past ten years or so, been slowly developing
a deep love and appreciation for vintage things of all kinds!

The changes I said that are coming soon are centered
around this passion of mine!
It's the story, you know...the story behind each thing, no
matter how small or seemingly insignificant.

Look at these buttons and this lovely pin.

I simply adore wondering whose clothing these may have
adorned!!  I practically squeal with delight at the
prospect of using them in a new and different way, and
helping others to appreciate the character and history
 of these charmers from the past!

Please pray for me as I work on all of this!
It is exciting, indeed, and I will share as soon as
I can.

I love you gals!!  Prayed for each of you this morning,
and hope that all is well in your heart, home, and life in general.

Have a blessed day, and thank you for all you add to mine!!

Bunches of Love,


  1. Been missin my sweet friend! I know what you mean about being crazy around the place. A good crazy, but crazy none the less. So much to little time. Love your vintage stuff and can't wait to see what you are doing with your blog. I adore blogging too and so good to know that I have friends across the map who are praying with me and for me! God is so good to connect all of us believers through blogging!
    Have a blessed day.

  2. HI sweetie, I echo all of your words about blogging-I know I've made the best friend a gal can have-it's you! Love you to pieces.
    Have a warm, sunny day.

  3. Oh Becky, you are such a blessing! I've missed you.

  4. Missing your posts, but I understand how wonderfully busy life can be! I'm looking forward to hearing what your "changes" are! I'm following a dream of mine right now too!

    Blessings and hugs!!

  5. I've missed you too Becky! I sure do understand how busy life can be sometimes for us!
    I also feel the same as you wrote here about blogging... I too, have made so many wonderful, kind and loving friends..


  6. Hi Becky,
    Oh, that bird plate is so pretty! And don't you just love vintage pearl buttons...and that 'pin' - I think it is a pin - is very lovely. It's suppose to be in the low 70s here today! The sun is shining and already 61 degrees out. The trees and shrubs are forming buds. With this warm week maybe everything will start to bud out. Your blog is looking so pretty. Have a great day.

  7. OK friend, I was just about ready to email you or to send out the FBI to find you!!!! I have missed your posts! I know how the Nuttiness can be though and completely understand, just missed your 'tweet' and uplifting posts each day. I'm glad you like the birdies I sent you! Enjoy them and pray for me every time you look at them.

    Happy-happy day to you.


  8. Oh dear Becky you are such a blessing. I will pray for you in this new venture. I pray God blesses your day and helps you in all your up coming activities and decisions. Hugs, Elena

  9. Oh I'm so glad you are doing well!! I missed you!!! You bless me every time you blog!!! I can't wait to see what you are doing with vintage stuff. I also have a passion for vintage and old things - something my mom and grandmother taught me growing up!! I love going to the thrift store and antique mall to see what kind of old stuff there is!! Have a wonderful evening Becky and I'm -oh so glad you are back!!


  10. It is always a treat to see your blog posts. I hope you are having a fun week!


  11. Hello Becky, love this post and you even more. I can't wait to meet my sunshine friend on Saturday.

    I am leaving here in a couple of hours.

    Until then!!!

    Love you, Jeanne

  12. Oh I know exactly what you is crazy busy over here. Spring cleaning, doing yard work, watching my great niece and the many activities my kiddo's are involved in. My son (child#3) is graduating from high school so we have been trying to help him get things in order. you and Maddy take the summer off or do you home school year round?

  13. Hey Beck,
    Wondering how all the birthday celebrations went.
    Praying that you are enjoying the warm, sunshiny day and the touch of GOD's Love!

  14. Oh Becky, I love the buttons and birds!! I'm really enjoying the birds that come to my feeders in these beautiful sunshiny days we've been having! Well, we are due for a little snow tonight- but that is just a normal "glitch" that we usually get sometime in March.
    We are celebrating Amanda and Sophia's birthdays (today!) and this weekend. Can't believe how fast Sophie's first year has gone by!

    Have a wonderful weekend my friend. And enjoy you pretty new vintage stuff...hmmm is new vintage an oxi-moron??:)


  15. It was very nice meeting you at the wonderful birthday celebration. The cookies were delicious. If you would share the recipe, I would be extremely happy, as would my husband.

  16. ooh i love your plate! and that pin is gorgeous. hope you're having a wonderful weekend!


Thank you so much for taking the time to share some JOY!
You're a blessing to me!
