Weekend Finds & Life

This dragonfly was hanging around my iris plants and I was able to take a few photos! Nice!




These are just a few of the weekend finds. The little doll bed was a "project" today for Grand girl and myself. We painted it and added some embellishments.The bed is for her American Girl doll. Forgot to take the after photo.

One of our blogging friends, Viv, was recently blessed with a Grandson, Jacob. He was born with MANY medical problems. He passed away yesterday after 15 days. Please pray for Viv, her Son and DIL as they grieve for Jacob.

Treasures don't mean so much sometimes.
Thank you for ALL the Blog Birthday Wishes. A name will be picked before the weekend!

Warmly,

deb

How on earth did you ever get a pic of a dragonfly? They are always so fast!

I don't know Viv but that is such sad news. I will definitely include her family in my prayers...hard to understand sometimes.

Hugs, Angie

Happy 4th Anniversary Deb!What a milestone for us all. We have had such fun these last years. I came here today to ask a special favor and was tickled pink to see your heart and banner - so clever, so cute! I am hoping to build a Friendship Garland for my large craft room window and would so love a triangle with your paper art and blog name (the size of copier paper)I would send you one from me. I do hope you will consider! Always, Elizabeth

Well, Deb, everything you found was a 'squeel' from me! I thought it was all adorable, but I can't tell you how sad I am about baby Jacob. It is heartbreaking. Twyla
