Introduction Boy, tell about myself. Where to start? I have a wonderful husband of 50 years, 3 children, and 5 grandchildren. They are all a great blessing in my life. I was a decorative painting teacher for 28 years. I love to learn new things, and share with others what I have learned, whether it be a craft, or a new insight from the Lord. I am quiet and contemplative at times, and love a walk by a quiet stream. Other times I am dancing and singing with my grand kids. I love how they see life, and how they help me see it fresh and new again. I am blessed they all live close to us. My latest venture is a small antique shop.(open 12 years now!) This is a dream come true for me and couldn't have happened without a lot of help from family and friends. It is wonderful blessing from my Lord, and a ministry He has given me. On this blog you will find tidbits about the store, and fun things I am learning, both with my hands and heart. May you be blessed by both.
Interests people, garage sales, any thing creative, the outdoors. DESIRE: To be all the Lord wants me to be.
Favorite Movies movies? I watch them occasionally, but forget them as soon as I see them. (except "The Passion of the Christ"- unforgettable!) We just saw "Fireproof"! Excellent movie on having a Christ based marriage.
Favorite Music Praise and worship songs
Favorite Books I tend to lean toward primitives and antiques books.. I loved reading to my grandkids when they were younger. And I read the Bible and Study books.
