The Wind Chimes
These are examples of the wind chimes I mentioned earlier in the post. It is really fun searching for the items to use and takes time to do the bead-work. But, I'm hoping to add a few to my craft show in the fall.
Growing up, the kitchen was the heart of our home. We had the most wonderful green Formica table, in a green cracked ice design. I loved that table then and even though my taste have somewhat changed, I would love to have that table now. Thank goodness I have been able to retain the special memories made by family and friends around that old table. I'm not even sure whatever happened to it. But, I hope if it has survived, it is loved by the owners. It was where everybody gathered when they came to visit. Seems they would come in the back door, grab a glass of tea or lemondade and just sit down around the table. It was then whoever entered the home was family.
Well,where do I begin. I'm a 52 year old wife, mother and grandmother of twin boys. I love anything old and primitive. I have just retired from my position as an office manager and am enjoying my time at home. It amazes me how quickly the days go by now. I always have projects planned each day and somehow....they are always overtaken by something else. I really don't know how I ever had time to work. It seems I got more done when I worked. But, nevertheless, I'm loving being at home.
As our country begins a new era, with a new president and vice president, we need to keep our government in our prayers. May they be given the wisdom and the strength needed for this undertaking.
It is not a time for harsh words and hate. We should do as the Bible tells us to do....pray for governement and its leaders. For this country to return to prosperious times, we have to put aside party lines, racial issues and the fear that our new leader is anything but a true American, that loves this country. God be with our new leaders and their families.
