Keep Calm-Craft On

Hands busy ,mind focused,I like it.I'm a person who can  think too much on personal relationships until I get tense, very tense. Arts and Crafts are one activity out of very few that can take My mind off of My personal relationships.

These are a few of My lastest.... An old miniature box I fixed up for My own pleasure. It started with Me learning about Frozen Charlotte Dolls  and the story of Fair Charlotte that goes along with them. In one of the tiny cubbies I wanted to find a sleigh for dear sorry Charlotte.Goggle Her if You don't know about Her. I was thinking about  doing a post on the legend,so many others have done so.
This paper wall hanging is My submission for the Spring blog hop  with Coffee Loving Paper Crafters.
 It was perfect for Me since I do lots of paper crafting and I love coffee  :  )

 The above plaque is for My youngest Granddaughter when She gets Her own room.

 A jar full of cinnamon popperie with color combo of red and purple (My fave combo of colors).

 An old Calif. dried fruit box I just fixed up for one of My daughters.  A Bible verse box,with many of My fave verses in it

 There are more, but enough for one post. The other activities that help Me relax and not obsess about relationships are swimming and vacationing, both with Paul My husband,as a couple of You may already know because I post on those activities too. What activity helps You mentally relax ? Tell Tell Tell. A kiss a peck and a hug around the neck to all My followers-sweet kindred spirits You are.Keep Calm-Craft On. Denise

Sequel to the movie BRAVE Please

BRAVE , is My favorite Disney movie of all time.For the several Years it's been out, I have introduced most of My Grandchildren to it.When We watch movies together it's one of My few choices.  lll  Image result for brave                                                                                                                                                                                                   I would love to travel to that part of the world.....Scotland, Ireland ect. Two of My daughters and My youngest Granddaughter have Her hair and no other Disney Princess has that type of beautiful Adorian  hair.The two same daughters also have Merida's fiery personality too. Merida's Father the King,who Merida takes after, is a wonderful wild character that I also love.     What little girl wouldn't love to fill Her bedroom with all the toys from the movie?I's the thousands that want to fill Their room with Frozen toys. I just never warmed up to Frozen like I have to Brave. What children's movie are You crazy for? Any of You Ladies out there would like to see a sequel to Brave? I of course would. I want to know who She falls in love with or would She stay unattached strong but most desired by men? I just know if She did fall in love He would be My kind of Man.  Hugs and blessings to You -Denise.

Song Of The winds.

 Doorway To Scotland   "Each day is a little life; every waking and rising a little birth; every fresh morning a little youth; every going to rest and sleep a little death." Schopenhauer  The Wind blowing, caressing My body, the whiff of a secret sent in the air, the singing of the wind. I love wind more with each passing Year. Ah Yes, one of the reasons to love  Rancho Cucamonga ,if You love wind.The Netherlands. Laundry blowing in the wind, Volendam,  1947 //  photo Henk JonkerSounds as if I'm on the beach
 but no , it's really the six palm trees blowing and whistling their songs of delight. A touch of God's hand. LISTEN ! Thank You Lord.

Mountain Majesty-God's Majesty-A wonderful World.

The red rose glowed in the pale blue light of the full moon. As he looked at it he was reminded of a time long ago, of the woman he had lost through his arrogance. This gleaming rose was the last of her he had to treasure.trip-to-the-nature: “ ”

I see trees of green, red roses too,

Storm passing

skies of blue  and clouds of white,   the dark sacred night ......                                                                                                   

and to top it all off,I will give Myself a cup of joe in a sweet mug,the music of an Irish whistle in the distance and My husband at My side.  What a wonderful life.

Simple pleasures. #TOMSRoastingCo

tea, comfy blanket, mountain view...At least once a year - A week in the mountains, coffee at sunrise, wine at sunset - on the porch.


I see trees of green, red roses too
 I see them bloom for me and you
 And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

I see skies of blue and clouds of white The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night And I think to myself, what a wonderful world
A couple of My favorite verse's from Louis Armstrong.Joining parties- Roses of Inspiration and Tea time Tues. both found on My right sideboard. Blessings Your way-Denise

A blessed 2015 for one and all.

I need a little up lift. Christmas and right after always puts Me on edge to be real honest.I get so excited with shopping and decorating and thinking about worshipping Jesus,then the day arrives and my daughters just seem to have trouble really enjoying each other's company. I pray and pray about the day,esp. for health and My daughters being nice to each other for just maybe 5 to 6 hours is all I ask for.My Dad told Me once that His Grandmother use to tell Her adult Children and maybe  Her adult Grandchildren "Don't grieve My spirit." Sometimes I would love to say that to them but, well, I don't know I suppose I don't want to rock the boat.                                                                                              
My Loves.......little darlings.They can laugh so hard together sometimes and boy that's one of My greatest joys in life to witness.

I'll  ring in the New Year with prayer and meekness, knowing what ever He allows into My life is for My good.Meekness is a continuing process of learning and striving for each and every day.This I hope, was not a downer of a post. I just need sometimes to be true to myself. Love  Denise  A BLESSED  NEW YEAR FOR ONE AND ALL.

A Blessed Holy Christmas

From My home to Your's.......

 wishing You all.....

a blessed Christmas,full of Christmas miracles.      Love  Denise

The Christmas Search. My home and much more.

What is it Were searching  for during the Christmas season? The magic of Our Youth,Our Children's Youth? A scene from a  TV movie that brings to mind the way it should have been or wish it would have been in our own life?

Sweet and aromatic smells of holiday foods and all kinds of goodies from Our kitchens,the kitchens of Our Mom's, Grandma's and Aunties . 

The birth of Baby Jesus in the Manger? The Christmas Church service?  Well maybe a few are right on, none of them are wrong or bad,and for Me, I've experienced all of them and more.The glimmer shimmer and shine of it all.

What are We searching for?Our hearts yearn for  something we can not grasp at times. 
 The welcoming door of a home and those in it You love so ?

Gifts given and received,with a big Thank-You and a now warmer heart ? That too yes,all this does make for a warmer heart.

 Four beautiful gifts from Gail at Purple Hues and Me :) Thank You and One More big hug goes to Holly from Cutie Pie Cottage for My rag ball garland,seen on My tree.

                       My search always ends every Christmas with My eyes looking up.There are no words, smells or sites ect.. just yet, I think there will be someday on the otherside,that can describe eternity in HEAVEN. Hugs and miracle blessings to You. Denise   PS...Oh please help ladies...I forgot how to fix the white behind My words,I've tried everything and just want to publish.You can till I fooled around with the template trying to fix it.                                          

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
