Not to worry & a little bird ~

~Blessings ~

I was worried about painting this vintage suitcase


it was my husbands and I did not want to ruin it.

I really did not like the brown color it was,


I decided to Not worry


just paint.

After I painted it a simple white,


distressed it 



and then a little more,

I am thinking I like it

at least 



Just showing you a cute little bird's nest 

that I 



using this year for decorating


Christmas tree.

Matthew 6:25-34

Do Not Worry

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]?
28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Happy Thanksgiving ~

~ Happy Thanksgiving to All ~

Psalm 95:1-6
1 Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD;
let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come before him with thanksgiving
and extol him with music and song
3 For the LORD is the great God,
the great King above all gods.
4 In his hand are the depths of the earth,
and the mountain peaks belong to him.
5 The sea is his, for he made it,
and his hands formed the dry land.
6 come, let us bow down in worship,
let us kneel before the LORD our Maker

my favorite books on the floor,

coffee table.

I painted the coffee table  a simple




It was light brown prior to being painted.

I am really thankful that I am able to find things 

to fix and paint and put to good use.

I find so much joy in painting.

Hoping you too are finding things to be

His love endures forever.

Crown Points of Gratitude ~

I was inspired today to create a section on my blog 

"Crown Points"

Just a little reminder that there are so many little things in life to

be thankful for.


The crown idea came to me while redoing my


The wreath looks like a crown.

I purchased the wreath from  ANTHROPOLOGIE.

I started to think about so many little things I should

be thankful for 


from there creative ideas came.

Hope you are inspired to be grateful.

Isaiah 28:5

New International Version (NIV)
In that day the Lord Almighty

    will be a glorious crown,
a beautiful wreath
    for the remnant of his people.

Secret Angel Wings ~

~ Blessings ~




 Just playing around

trying to find new ways to create




 “The reason birds can fly and we can't is simply because they have perfect faith,
 for to have faith is to have wings.”

 J.M. Barrie, The Little White Bird

 "Until you spread your wings, you'll have no idea how
far you can fly"


Wings are secret ways to rise up and soar, but unless you
find yours, you will only stand still.

Hebrews 11:1

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
