Hello my friends ~ How have you been?
We have been doing well ~ I have been on a quest for the last little while for a wooden bowl for my farmhouse kitchen ~
I posted about it here
While in Aberfoyle, I looked high and I looked low and I could NOT find a wooden bowl to put on my farmhouse table. Well, I just about gave up and then to my complete surprise ~
I found one ;-)
I love the markings on this bowl ~
and I love the look on my farmhouse table. Well, now, can you guess where I found this bowl?
Ahem, my friends, I found this bowl in my own kitchen cupboard. Well, now I know it is time to clean out the kitchen cupboards to see what other treasures are in there.
No wonder I could not find a wooden bowl. The good Lord knew I already had one ;-)
Have you ever found what you were looking for in your own home?
Please tell me I'm not the only one ~
I can hardly wait to hear all of your stories ~

Hello my friends, it has been a while ~
There have been storm clouds at the Vintage household. As you may know, my father in law passed on June 4, 2013. We will miss him terribly ~
Aunt Judy passed away on July 18 after a brief battle with cancer.
But ~ we must look upward and seek strength. For after the storm clouds roll away ~
Blue skies emerge ~
and rainbows appear ~
and you just know, the Lord is with you, giving you the strength to take one step at a time, to put one foot in front of the other and to keep going ~
"He is my strength and my Salvation, whom shall I fear?"
nothing and no one ~ for the Lord is with me ~
I still see beauty everywhere ~
I now take the time to stop and really absorb all of the beauty around me ~
For it is everywhere ~
Even my favourite rock ~
My friends, take the time to hug your family, look around you and really enjoy all of nature's wonders, hold each other close ~
Time is precious ~ slow down, relax, and enjoy life ~ We have learned that life is precious and we take the time to enjoy each moment ~ even the smallest of things ~
Do you take time to enjoy life's moments? Please do
I hope you missed me as much as I have missed all of you ~
Mom is doing better these days. It's going to be hard for her for a while, but we stay close.
Soon I will be back to my old antics (yep, yard sales, creating ~ you know). I don't want to miss a second ;-)
Have a wonderful weekend my friends
