About that Homeless Person Standing at the Stop Light...

Ever have those days when you can't seem to do anything right?  You know when your hair just looks awful, your jeans are too tight and you leave the house without your cellphone????  You feel agitated with yourself.  And then you drive down the street and see a homeless person, wearing a sign asking for money right there at the stop light.   You think to yourself, is that person just scamming people or are they really in need, or perhaps, are they an Angel testing you.  I choose to think it's a test from God to see if you are willing to help others in need.  
So, I always give them whatever I happen to have in my wallet and say a little prayer of thanks for all the Blessings in my life.
What do you do when you see them.  Do you think they are really angels placed in your sight, or do you think they are running a scam?  I'm not talking about all of them, I'm just talking about the one that is placed right in your sight.  What do you do?

Anyway, nuff said about that.  I shopped the house to create this corner where nothing ever seems to work.
Then created some Bunny Cloches for the shop.  My poor shop space has been so neglected since the beginning of my son's illness. Also my Blog has been neglected too.  I'm sure I've lost readers, and can't say that I blame them.  But if you are still hanging in with me, then I say thank you for the support.

Speaking of my son, again, I want to thank all of you dear ones that have supported his long journey with Crohns.  Jeff's Go Fund Me Account. has helped with some of his medical bills and for that we are so thankful.  Although the bills are still stacking up and we have not reached our goal, we have faith that we will get through this. If you would like to read Jeff's story just click on Jeff's Go Fund Me above.  Again, thank you all so much.

Architectural Salvage...Love it or Not???

When I say Architectural Salvage, do you say "YES PLEASE!"
I can name a big bunch of bloggers that love it and have been known to travel near and far just to find the perfect piece.  
My Sister and I traveled about two hours to a great shop in Wilmington, NC called The Vintage Marketplace.  There we found lots of great stuff but this architectural piece was and is, the pièce de ré·sis·tance!
 The shopkeeper told us a little about the history of this piece of salvage.  It seems it was rescued from an old Historical District Mansion that was being torn down and the shop was lucky enough to grab up some pieces.  Did I mention there were two pieces of this trim??? One for Sister and one for me!
For now it resides on top of a table in my entryway.  It's so heavy that I'm not sure if I will ever hang it.  

Sister has been on the hunt for a great cow picture and here's what she found at Joss and Main.

Once again I want to thank you all for your prayers, well wishes, notes to me and for the visits and support for my son Jeff's Go Fund Me Page.  I can't thank you enough.  Jeff still has a very long way to go, but we are making a little more progress everyday.  Again, I thank you with all my heart helping to keep me focused and letting me know that we are not in this alone.  💑 I'm so grateful.

A big thank you to all my Blogging Friends!

My dear sweet blogging friends I cannot write this without tears filling my eyes.  I am just overwhelmed by your kindness and support for my Son Jeff and his struggle to survive Crohns disease. So many of you have so graciously supported his Go Fund Me Page and your generosity and kindness have left me speechless. 
He still has a very long road ahead and our faith is remaining strong.  If you'd like to share Jeff's story, then I'd like to thank you in advance.  And a special thanks to so many of you bloggers that have already shared.  

I don't have much to share on my blog except this one spot in my entryway that always makes me smile.

Maybe it's too early for Bunnies, but I couldn't resist putting these out just a little early.


I hope that I can get back to blogging on a more regular basis, but don't think I've forgotten about you.  Believe me, when times are tough,  I know that I can find beauty and happiness reading your beautiful blogs.  

                                         ~~hugs~~
