She is going to live in a pocket of my SMASH book. Since my theme is "surrender" I found her fitting. Babies are dependent like I want to be.
You can have A LOT of paper doll fun for free! Aren't her clothes lovely?
Here is another happy find: Laura Stoddart's art! This book is a small treasure!
I thought it was very cute that Bill chose bat cups for his board meeting this week!
And around the house I found my birthday ribbons hanging on a knob. Happy!
Speaking of birthday happiness, my neighbor gave me these Vera Bradley gloves. The bow is attached to the tag. Aren't they bright and cheery?
Something that I've been meaning to show you is this prayer plaque that my granny gave me when I was confirmed. See my granny? Isn't she CUTE? I love her turtleneck and cardigan. I wear that same outfit now! Her hair is so "granny bun-like" and well, I love her face! Anyway, she gave me this prayer and I prayed it every night for the longest time.
A Girl's Prayer
I pray whatever wrong I do,
I'll never say what is not true;
Be willing at my task each day
And always honest in my play.
Make me unselfish with my joys,
And generous to the other girls;
And kind and helpful to the old,
And prompt to do what I am told.
Bless every one I love, and teach
Me how to help and comfort each;
Give me the strength right living brings,
And make me good in little things.
I do believe God worked in me as I said that prayer. Yay!
I am not going to school today because I am helping Kelli. She had surgery a week ago and is recovering nicely, but she can't lift heavy stuff (Millie Rose!) and Bryan is going on a retreat. Yahoo! I shall wear my jeans and play with princesses.
Would you like even more light-hearted joy? Listen to this sweet song by my new favorite artists, The Minnutes. Thank you for visiting me, friends!
