Save The School


Hartline School, Hartline, WA

A week ago I had the great pleasure 

of touring this beautiful old schoolhouse.

They have filled it with donations and 

are using the rooms for a thrift store.

The items sold are going toward saving the building.

I do hope they have great success.

It's a wonderful building.


 Come tour the halls with me.

They are filled with history.

Sport Pennants from Days Gone By.


Look at the artwork on this

old safe. 

Great room for school plays,

recitals and graduation. 

You can see why I wish them

success in preserving this 

magnificent piece of history. 


Before I close . . .

I want to show you some

flowers picked from the 


It won't be long before

frost and waiting for

spring tulips to bloom

before having flowers 

inside again :) 



 Wishing you all a very

sweet day.

May God bless you 

and keep you safe.

Your blogging sister,

Connie :)

Summer Blooms


I'm just going to let the photos

do the talking . . .

Who has words to describe 

the beauty of God's handiwork?


I look closely at the intricate

details of nature

and I see all the love that was

put into each and every creation. 


This was not created by accident.

This was created by the loving hands of God.


Wishing each of you an awesome day . . .

go out and pick a flower

or even a weed and look closely

at the beauty found in it.


til' next time . . .

Connie :)

Fresh Picked Flowers & Finished Quilt On The Bed



Fresh Picked Flowers & Finished Quilt On The Bed 

I'm having company for dinner tonight

so I went out into the garden 

to picked a few bouquets to

place around the house. 


Thirty-Five Plus Years In The Making . . .

and this quilt is finally on the bed. 

I pieced the quilt top so many 

years ago that I don't remember 

the year exactly . . . only that 

our daughter was young.

By the time I finished it and was

ready to start quilting,

she had out grown the pastel 

Sunbonnet Susies.

So, I tucked it away . . .

until last winter when I got it

out and processed to hand-quilt it.


I offered it to her,

but she says, "it's not her style"

well, it's my style . . .

I've never out grown my love 

of vintage style quilts.


So, I have a new quilt 

to put on my bed and enjoy :)


til next time . . .

Have a glorious day,

don't miss the opportunity 

to spread your love 

with a smile or a hug.

This day only comes around 

once in a lifetime.
