Summer is Here!

OK folks I know it has been awhile since my last blog. But for us, summer time is family time. Plus all the tons of fun outside time. Living on the water is so exciting. And being indoors is not easy on such beautiful days.

So be patient...I will blog more as the weather cools and the indoor time increases.

Been So Busy!

I don't know about you but when Spring time comes around I am so ready for it. But with that being said there are only so many minutes in a day. I have to spend every moment that God blesses me with oh so careful or the days will vanish and there will be nothing accomplished.

With spring time comes...getting the garden ready to plant, weeding flower beds, getting patio furniture all ready for out-door meals and relaxing time, changing out my flags to fit the season, spring cleaning the house, getting out my shorts and all the millions of other things!!!

Well now it is summer and all those million of things have been done!!! Well maybe most of them. Oh to have a completely home-based business and never to have leave except when we want to. Then there would be more time for life!!!

But our life is good. And we are VERY blessed!!! So when I think there is not enough time in the days I just remember that every moment is precious and I am not to waste even one of them on idleness or evil but on Godly good things!!! And to ALWAYS be thankful...and I am. I am so thankful for my wonderful husband that helps me with all the millions of things to do and I am so thankful for his Love!

So today...on this beautiful Sabbath, we can rest and be thankful!

The snow is gone and now it's back to work.

Ever wish the snow days could go on forever? I know there are alot of folks out there who really hate snow but we love it and we love the time off from work. But today is back to work and the snow is but just a beautiful memory.

So in honor of working and being thankful we have jobs I have listed this latest photo on my Etsy site. We cross this bridge so many times during the month and I never really knew the history until I did my research for this listing.
So to find out the really cool history of this bridge you will have to go to my website.

Breath-taking - ACEO original fine art photograph

I have listed this ACEO print on my Etsy shop. To me it just screams Spring. I can't wait until it is warm enough to get out in the flower beds and garden.

But I guess I will have to wait a little longer. Last night we had thunder, lightning, high winds and even a little hail mixed in.

So I guess the photos will have to do for now. How about you? Drop by my Etsy shop and purchase a print for yourself. It really does help!

Red Hot...Come and get em'

Handwritten "I Love U" in Snow and then transformed into beautiful cards for your special loved ones!!

One of my latest listings on Etsy. A set of 5 Valentine day cards with envelopes!

Valentine's Day is coming up!

Check out my latest card listed on my Etsy shop. It is the ultimate love story!

This is how it reads...

1. He sits on his pole in the river…
2. She sits on the other…
3. She looks his way with that special look…
4. She calls out…letting him know she has a special request…
5. He dives head first into the deep blue of the Pamlico river…
6. Look…here he comes! Incoming in view… And this is her still sitting on her pole…Waiting…
7. He's getting closer, and look he has something special for her in his beak… He has brought her lunch…a big fat fish!
8. He gives it to her so graciously… even in mid flight!
9. And here she is sitting on her pole, with fish in mouth… as he flies down and away. The End.

I am so glad I had the camera the day this beautiful love story unfolded. Me and my dear husband were sitting on our pier and could not believe our eyes. Our gulls love story actually happened as you see and is not computer manipulated.

So head on over to my Etsy shop at and buy this ultimate love story card for your special someone in your life!

TGIS... Thank God It's Sabbath

The BEST day of the week! From sundown on Friday to sundown on Saturday is the Sabbath that the Lord God created for us. He so knew what He was doing.

We get so caught up in working and doing that it's hard to find time to rest. Well that is what the Sabbath is all about. A day to spend with God and family. A day to let the cares of the world stay away from mind and body.

I am so thankful that God created the Sabbath and I am so glad that it is in my heart to keep it.

Give it a try! I promise you that you will look at life differently!!
