HAPPY 4TH of JULY - 2008

Can you believe that we are celebrating another 4th of July already? My where
does the time fly too???
I realize that it has been over a week since last posting.
There has been so much going on...that again, where has the time flown too?
At the left of this post you will see a Garden Totem that I created for my garden.
This is a popular item with many. So much fun, and cheap to make.
Use up your slightly nicked dishes...or better yet, hit the yard sales, thrift stores to find what you want.
You are recycling and that is definately a "
green thing."
Silly me, with my health issues and busy with Etsy I joined our local garden club.
We went to Warsaw Indiana last Thursday..had lunch at the Boat House Rest. then visited the Biblical Garden inside the Grace Park. What a lovely Garden. This husband and wife have created this based around plants that are mentioned in the Bible. We were surprised to find many we are already familiar with.
Well....as with many things...this got my brain go full-speed ahead with designs/ideas for creating.
I always have to be creating something. So be sure to check out my Etsy site often. Am constantly listing new items. Here lately I seem to be doing more with my fiber art (sewing) than anything..and of course just LOVE quilting.
Well, we are out the door for a steak dinner. Then will enjoy fireworks.
Hope each of you are having a great celebration today.
We have been so Blessed by God. This nation, sadly , alot of times lately , have forgotten that.
We have been Blessed also to have courageous men and women through the years willing to lay down their lives for this Nation. I am so humbled and thankful for them.
God Bless
