The ammunition basket…..

I mentioned in the post about The Sweetest Gift that I had found
the ammunition basket a while back.

Peaceful Sunday…….


old church with dirt floor


He came to her on a starry night
Her the lady, he the knight
And knelt before her on the ground
Her hands within his own he bound
And gazed into her starlit eyes
Illuminated by the lunar rise
And smiling, produced to her a ring
A trinket to most, a trifled thing
And said to her those words she dreamed
And faltered not, although it seemed
He would.
And she, exuberant, looking down
Could not recall when last she'd frowned
Though tears flowed freely down her face
And settled on her moonlit lace
Her face bespoke rapturous elation
Outshining God's surrounding creations
And opening her delicate mouth
One whispered word made to slip out
And soared across the enchanted night
And on his ears it made to alight
With growing cheer upon its advent
His heart soared forth whenst it gained the content
And all doubts dashed he embraced her dearly
For though it seemed unlikely,
She would.
And spinning upon that ghostly hill
That gorgeous spine of earth instilled
It seemed, with all the wonder of the world
This dear young couple their hearts unfurled
And then, exuberance smiting his face
He stepped away to leave her place
She glanced and questioned lovingly
Where go thou now, my dearest sweet?
And to the world his voice he hurled
"I think, my dear, I shall conquer the world."

I have no idea where fall went but it certainly isn’t at my house!!!!
More frigid temps and snow are in the forecast…..

✯Frost touching the leaves and flowers bedazzles them in diamonds for a little while and they go out in a blaze of glory...

The new rugs were a big ole flop!

Untitled 2

I was so excited when I found the leather and hemp rugs from Soft Surroundings. They were absolutely beautiful and just what I was looking for…… plus they were priced right! However the rugs were woven with itsy bitsy pieces of leather and hemp and the ends were not secured.  After a while the hemp ends that were sticking out began to unravel and become fuzzy. I was also constantly picking up little pieces of leather.

Peaceful Sunday…..

country church

One woman, one man
with hearts so true
come before you
to say I do...
A love so fair
A dream come true
A couple shares
what they are destined to do
He takes her hand
to have and to hold
Their hearts embrace
and never let go...
A touch so pure
A smile so real
She closes her eyes
so she may feel
The love of one man
The love of her life
They join as one
as Man and Wife...
