Blue Monday – Goodwill Finds   21 comments


Happy Blue Monday!   Check out my recent Goodwill finds…



I liked the simple design of the plates and the teapot is a Sadler England teapot.  I really like the delicate flowers on the teapot.  You know the drill – head on over to Sally’s for more Blue Monday posts!

Metamorphosis Monday – Guest Room   12 comments


It’s Monday and time for another Metamorphosis Monday.  Today I am going to show you my no cost Guest Room makeover.   Here’s the Before shot…



Nothing like accentuating your white walls!  I do plan on painting this summer but until then I really needed to perk up this drab room!  So, here’s the After…



I used a sheet I had picked up at the Goodwill as a new bed spread and covered the head board with a curtain sheer.  I had the pillow shams from a previous purchase.  The decorative pillow I had in another room.  I moved some pictures from other rooms in the house and then used the rose vine to accentuate the picture – not my drab walls!  

This little makeover took an hour to do and I used items I already had to do it.  My guest room went from drab to not so drab.  I am really looking forward to painting this summer!  For more Met Monday posts, head on over to Susan’s!

Hymn for Sunday – Bring, O Morn, Thy Music   3 comments



BRING, O MORN, THY MUSIC – by William C. Gannett

Bring, O morn, thy music! Night, thy starlit silence!
Oceans, laugh the rapture to the storm winds coursing free!
Suns and planets chorus, Thou art our Creator,
Who wert, and art, and evermore shalt be!

Life and death, Thy creatures, praise Thee, mighty Giver!
Praise and prayer are rising in Thy beast and bird and tree:
Lo! they praise and vanish, vanish at Thy bidding,
Who wert, and art, and evermore shalt be!

Light us! lead us! love us! cry Thy groping nations,
Pleading in the thousand tongues, but naming only Thee,
Weaving blindly out Thy holy, happy purpose,
Who wert, and art, and evermore shalt be!

Life nor death can part us, O Thou Love eternal,
Shepherd of the wandering star and souls that wayward flee!
Homeward draws the spirit to Thy Spirit yearning,
Who wert, and art, and evermore shalt be!
