A Saturday morning miscellaneous post.
A few of my recent winter favorites.
This is what I found lining the wooden table by my husband's recliner, late last evening:)
He says that he is eating them for his health.
His special Saturday morning breakfast...French toast made with the "Archer Farms
Raisin Cinnamon" breakfast bread from Target. Yes, it does have a bit of melted butter,
but remember, he had the "Halos" the night before, so it all balances out...or so he says:}
The wreath was a gift to me from my daughters, this Christmas.
My middle daughter created it for me, and I think it looks so nice
hanging on the big wooden mirror at my back door.
It was a new project for her to tackle and I like the textures and the
touches of glitter she added to it. What a special gift it is to me!
The slice of black walnut wood that my brother cut from a tree recently.
It looks so good on my kitchen island. "Anthropologie Stores" have
wood pieces like this for sale, but mine was a gift.
The new sunflower drink cover that I was given. It does a great job of keeping my morning
coffee hot. Since "hot" is how I like my coffee, this new gadget works for me.
Recently, I sat at my sister's table, for a Christmas dinner, and she had
created these beautiful favors. She took an empty jar, painted the lid gold,
drilled a hole in the top, and installed a crystal knob from "Hobby Lobby".
She had a gold and white name tag tied onto the front of it, and had
it filled with a sheet of white tissue with gold designs on it, and a few
pieces of chocolate candy.
Now, it adds a touch of pretty to the vignette in my bathroom, and
is filled with cotton balls.
When I just do not have time to wash my hair, this new product
sure does the trick. I read about it and it's rave reviews, so I tried it.
Now, I am recommending it to you. An inexpensive and effective
alternative to hair washing when time is of the essence.
This sleek new EOS container of raspberry hand cream that I now
carry in my purse. My hands seem to get so dry over the winter.
I like how it does not take up much space in my purse, and I
really like how it makes my hands feel.
As for the Nivea lip product, I like that too.
At the drug store where I purchased it, they had light pink and
The color is sheer, and the moisturizing is soothing.
In my book, it is a fun new product!
I like the "Night Owl" coffee sign that I was given this Christmas. I added it
to my kitchen coffee table area.
Yes, I do have a small area of my kitchen, dedicated to "coffee", my favorite drink.
I close with my thoughts regarding the world situations of this past week. What in the
world is one to think, when with every news story, it all seems scarier and more
chilling? Well, today, this story seems to express my heart thoughts perfectly;
"Years ago the captain of an ocean liner took his young daughter along on his run from
Liverpool, England, to New York City. One night when all the passengers were asleep,
the huge vessel ran into some violent weather. The wind came sweeping over the water,
and mighty swells rolled across the bow of the ship. All moveable objects were being
tossed about, and everyone soon sensed the imminent danger. Many sprang from
their berths in alarm and began to dress. The captain's little girl, eight years old, was
awakened and cried out, "What's the matter?" When told about the storm, she asked,
"Is my father steering the ship?" Being assured that he was, she put her head on her
pillow, and in spite of the howling gale and crushing waves she was soon fast asleep."
Corrie Ten Boom says it best, when she says, "Never be afraid to trust an unknown
future to a known God."
Thank you for stopping by, and sharing in my "little something."
