{family} bracelets...

similar to a friendship bracelet...
a family bracelet
"families are forever!" (and extra special too!)

to create ours,
we each chose three different fabrics,
then simply tore them into strips and braided them...

for the ends we knotted and shredded them a bit to form
a messy pom-pom...

I like to wear mine with other bracelets too...
a sweet *fun* reminder of my precious family!

"A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."
Ecclesiastes 4:12

Hope ya'll have a wonderful holiday weekend!
We're off to celebrate with our family! "See" you Tuesday!
Many Blessings!

My new car!

just dreaming...
but, I am SO in love with this car!
 Oh! the joy of the "mom's taxi" being this "happy scrappy" dream car!

I think I may just have to try and re-create one!
What a happy dream!

Happy Monday!
Many Blessings!

"To catch a dream"

just a little something
extra special I created for Princess #2...

a dream catcher of sorts...

filled with sweet inspirations and happy little things...

all created using mostly vintage materials...

and even a  few surprises found "sparkling" around too...

and as always, a stitched kiss and hug sealing
this special gift that was created with lots and lots of love!

Have a wonderful weekend!
Many Blessings!

Random happiness...

delightful flowers picked by the children
 and proudly presented to mommy...

my new neighbor...
 (to a girl who's from Texas a very welcome/happy site!)

yummy  *dark* chocolate chip cookies...
which have now been breakfast AND lunch!

a sparkly new project...

and a little stitchin' one too!

What's on your "random happiness" list today?

Happy Monday!
Many Blessings!

(truly) no place like home...

we bid farewell to our current home this week,
and begin fluffing our new nest this weekend!
(even though it is just a temporary one- a bit more on that later!)

Hope your weekend is simply wonderful!
Many Blessings!

All things...

bright and beautiful,

all creatures great and small,

all things wise and wonderful,
the Lord God made them all.

Cecil Francis Alexander

Happy Monday!
Many Blessings!
