She's done it again!

She's gone and done it again!

Beth, from Ruby & Co.

has done the most wonderful blog post on cottage living!

And you all know that I am rather partial to living
in a cottage! ;o)
Doesn't that sink remind you of mine?

BTW...this pic is from last fall....I've been redoing
a LOT of my decor.. pics coming soon ;o)

Anyway..just had to share! ;o)

Blessings, Mumsie
p.s.    3 posts in one day...phew! 


Okay...I'm a least when it comes to decorating our
wee little homestead cottage~
I do have some original ideas...but when I see an idea
I can copy that is a nice fresh change
using what I have on hand..well...I'm just gonna copy it.
I find lots of inspiration from favorite mags
but...honestly...the many lovely blogs I follow
have  such wonderful inspiration...
('s almost an addiction)
Not just decorating..mind you
I've made some wonderful new kindred friends
 But...I digress ;o)
to see Anne Marie's wonderful blog
Then....(promise you'll come back) and check out the pathetic photo of my version
(I am sooo not a photographer...and I have a puny little camera)

My sweet tattered  gardening hat
ready to grab as I go out the door to work in my *potager*
(This is in the *mudroom*...not the *kitchen*)
Works for me~
Some more copycat stuff coming up soon!  ;o)

Blessings, Mumsie

Homestead Barn Hop

And so am I...*sigh*

Sunday Blessings

He was taken from prison and from judgement,
And who will declare His generation?
For He was cut off from the land of the living;
For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.
And they made His grave with the wicked -
But with the rich at His death.
Because He had done no violence,
Nor was any deceit in His mouth.

ISAIAH 53:8-9

Seeking Direction

Been seeking some direction lately...where to go from here.

Wanting to move forward...stay on the right road.

Sometimes the directions aren't as clear as I would like.

This kinda sums it up.

Good thing I have built in GPS.

God's Plan System.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  Jeremiah 29:11

Sunday Blessings

All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, everyone, to his own way;
And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
Yet, He opened not His mouth;
He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,
And as sheep before it's shearer is silent,
So He opened not His mouth.
ISAIAH 53: 6-7

Sunday Blessings

                              He is despised and rejected by men,
                        A Man of sorrows and aquainted with grief.
                         And we hid as it were, our faces from Him;
                      He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.
                Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows;
                                 Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
                                  Smitten by God, and afflicted.
                     But He was wounded for our transgressions,
                                 He was bruised for our iniquities;
                   The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
                                And by His stripes we are healed.
                                            Isaiah  53:3-5

Winter Uglies

The beautiful view outside my cottage window....
stock photo


The winter uglies have set oh my!
The snow is no longer pretty outside my window
The pathway to the *girls* cottage is dirty and brown
The porch has a lovely barricade made of brooms, shovels, buckets and chore boots to keep them from
visiting and leaving chook pooh as calling cards ;o)

It is only temporary....spring is just around the corner
and the dirty snow will be replaced with green grass
early spring flowers and budding trees.

Until then , I'll just have to close my eyes to the winter uglies
and dream of the green of Spring.

Blessings, Mumsie
