She Considers a field, and buys it,
with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard

Here Comes Santa Claus




Santa on the back of a fire truck, what more could a little boy ask for..
He's not so little any more..
.
Every year our local fire department rides around our neighborhood with santa along, giving out candy canes, with lights flashing and telling one and all Merry Christmas!!
.
We use to just hear them yelling Merry Christmas, the sound of the sirens and the flashing of the lights, we knew they were out there, but they never made it to our street. Our street is not really a through street. So every year our little guy would go out side in the freezing cold and wait, for the hope that this year they would remember him..
.
Until one year His dad couldn't take the heart break of his sons disappointment anymore, so he went to the fire department with a nice donation and our street address....
.
Now for the last 3 years as our son stands out in the freezing cold waiting on the firetruck to make it's way to his house and he is not disappointed.....
.
Thank You to the best fire company in our four state area!
.
With all said..
We know that JESUS is the reason for this Season
Merry Christmas!!

Ironstone, Silver, Moldings & Me

You can never have to much ironstone,

I found two pieces of old door frame molding,
I think it was pine,
don't matter now because it's white... added some hooks and
ta da, beautiful.
I really like how they turned out.











I don't think you can have to much tarnished silver either,
Oh the possibilities with silver.......
then there is me, yes I took this pic myself, I know, I know looks like a sad facebook pic, he he he he he, it is.. I used this pic for my new facebook & blog prfile picture, there was no one around to take it so I had to do it myself.
I thought it was about time, the pic I had up was getting close to two years old..

Stay tuned there is more to come.
