Choose a doll....that looks like Maddie.

Maddie

Maddie
Maddie.
Help I can't decide ! For each Daughter and Granddaughter I have a doll or dolls that looks like each one.It's My own doll collection I started Years ago-when We had more money :/ I promised Myself I would only buy dolls that look like them.Some even look like them plus came with their exact name. I felt how much more meaningful that would be for Me and someday for them. The next Granddaughter I still have to buy for is Maddie/Madaline.So I was thinking about getting some help from You.Let Me show You a few that I found in My research.Pick which one You think looks more like Her.I will buy the one most of You agree on. If You find one for Me You can always E-mail Me the photo but I really don't expect that. O.K. here they are..........






This one was taken last Winter :)
I only included the toddler age. I like those dolls more because the child does start getting those cute personal looks. Please help  and join in on My fun :)  Hugs Denise

One Christian Who say's it's O.K...... if You know in whom You believe.


Oct. brings back wonderful memories to many of Us,even Us Christians.Of when We were little and when Our Children were little. Harvest festivals at church(many were in cute costumes).Crisp nights made warm by Mothers Chilli dinners and  apple desserts,looking for just the right pumpkins,playing with friends in the early evening,  sweaters on, jumping in the piles of leaves.You remember.    
Boys in the neighborhood hiding in tree houses and forts

and Us girls making homes in Our Play houses.Well,at least in Southern CA. this was going on.
My four Christian daughters wanted and have carried on these traditions.Their homes turn toward days of long ago that they remember from Me and My sisters and even their Grammie.









You may see if You visit Me later this month that Yes,I think of Halloween as a secular holiday,filled with innocent fun.I know ALL the arguments against it- I'm a 7th generation Christian, I have heard and discussed it-I know in whom I believe and am not able to be persuaded away from Christ.
BUT.....One thing for SURE is.... I don't want to be a stumbling stone to others that feel strongly the other way.So I will understand if You don't stop by and visit Me late Oct. but Please come back in Nov.    ; )    With love-Denise     joining : Sleep over Sunday

Velveteen pumpkins-Oh Yes!

Joanne's Fabric and Craft store had velveteen pumpkins for their half off early Fall sale. I bought 3, one of each color. I think they were like... $7.49 each .I've  had My eye on them for a couple of Years.



The jewels and ribbon are included  :)
 I've been to all My fave stores for Fall perusing except Pier One,Which I'm heading on over today after I'm done with this post.I do a lot of "window shopping" until something hits Me,or until My feet give out.Boy,when I was younger I could stay out shopping until it was time to pick the kids up from school.Those were fun days and I feel blessed to have been a stay at home Mom with four daughters.Yes, I've been an R.N. since right out of college,but truth be told I only worked once in a blue moon,like each time a Realtor told Me to until Our houses went through escrow.I sure wish My four Daughters could do that,I thought while I was raising them that they would.Even the littlest one who is married to a G.I. Doctor still works.That's why I'm always babysitting.Well, times have changed but it does make Me sad.Gee -I didn't mean to get off subject.....I was talking about Fall decor. shopping..... A few new goodies I added this Year.

Glass pumpkins-Dollar Tree



  If You know Me,You know one thing I can't pass up are tiny round houses.I love them and who knows some day I may live in one. Enjoy Our early Fall, I'm kind of excited. Off to Pier One.I hope I don't see any tiny round houses ; ) Talk to You later-Denise

Letting go lasts a life time.

A continual process-letting go of one thing then in a few years letting go of another-It truly never ends.
When Were Young,

just starting out

We think We know how

and that will be the end of it.

We learn it just becomes something else,

one more turn for Us to

let go....give in....

be free
of what holds on at the next turn in life.

Keep letting go
until the end and We will be who We were meant to be.....


FREE !!  Love Denise....PS This was for Me...one more thing I want to let go of.Jealousy of a few daughter's time and relationship with their In-laws. Oh I get so tired of Myself sometimes. Change Denise Change !

Wondrous World

What a wondrous world.Any mountain reminds Me of the Creator.....but this mountain,shout's out His name-Jehovah.      Chichilianne, Rhone Alpes, France

This sweet little scene reminds Me of His goodness and His care and concern for Our well being.


Enjoy ,Love Denise

End of Summer Garden Party

Good Day :)   I've found a new fun blog party to join, the Tuesday Garden Party.It has 5 lovely host's, I think most of You will enjoy visiting them.So please relax and start hopping.That is, hopefully after You peruse My tiny Coffeeberry Cottage and join Me for a cup of Your favorite beverage and a goody.For those of You who have never visited before,My garden is tiny but I'm married to a farmer at heart so it changes whenever He gets involved.He does leave My fairy gardens alone most of the time.





In this photo the tiny hand belongs to the newest  fairy Herself-Maddie Kaye. She's learning God's wonderful colors in nature
from the oldest Grammie hobbit in the shire.To the right is the Ol' farmer  Himself  having a moment of contemplative silence with Maddie, looking out toward the Fairway, which in My world is the green Shire.Oh Maddie,Do You see the Shire ?


If You look through My eyes and Maddie's.... way across the fairway, You'll see the Shire .
Our warm Summer has been hard on Our garden.I plan real soon to do a Fall make over. Thank You for joining Our Garden Party.Enjoy the end of Summer, Hugs and blessings Your way Denise
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.
