Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

sunflowers, afghans, vincent and God

I don't think that art imitates life; nor does life imitate art. I rather believe that true art imitates God. The Sweet-Psalmist of Israel, David cried,
"The heavens declare the Glory of God and the firmament showeth His handiwork." How much more than, should the humble works of our hands bring glory to the Heavenly Father?
I bought this lovely old Sunflower afghan in a thrift store last Saturday. After all, how could I let someone's loving handiwork languish in obscurity in the back of a second-hand store? This craftswoman and Vincent must be kindred spirits!
