His Abundant Love, His Able Arms, just Let Go

Good Sunday Morning. I pray your day is a blessed one .. I pray your week ahead is full of God's abundant love showering you. I pray that if you're weary you let him carry you, I pray if you're tired of mind you let him take care of all the worries that have been piling up making you feel overwhelmed. Life is demanding, tiring, exhausting at times.. sometimes of our own creation and other times simply it's just life events that unfold each day around us.  Hand it all over to God right now. Let him carry your cares, your worries, your tiredness, exhaustion, illness, .. some things  in life won't change immediately .. but the way we react or even see them can if only we let the Lord be part of them .  Today and each day this coming week let him carry you in his arms ...

 Isaiah 40:28-31
Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

AMEN !!!!

Until next time

God has a thousand ways !

TRUTH ! In the last 6 months I can attest to this being so true . I had been praying about a situation since fall of last year and asking the Lord to give me wisdom and show me the direction he knew was best .. that answer didn't come until March of this year and he sent it through a sequence of unforeseen events and through someone I had never met. There was no denying the answer it was so amazing in how it came wrapped to me in a beautiful package only he could have wrapped. Don't give up sometimes the wait is long but keep praying and keep waiting he will reveal his answer in his perfect time ...
Isaiah 43:18-19, "Forget what happened long ago! Don’t think about the past. I am creating something new. There it is! Do you see it? I have put roads in deserts, streams in thirsty lands." (CEV)
Isaiah 45:3, "I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, who summons you by name." (NIV)
Have a Beautiful and Blessed Sunday .. 

Until Next Time

Making Summer Memories

Well I hope your Summer is off to a wonderful start.  It's another hot day here .. the heat has officially arrived.

Well they say summer is about making memories and we made our own funny memory last night .. Abbey had been wanting to get out and see some fireflies .. well I went to take Flossie out and there were a bunch around a pine tree so I told her to come out and look this sparked the idea we would go out on a night drive in the country to see the fields and trees alight .. so we headed out and drove for near an hour down back roads. I think we saw about 10 of them total LOL..Yep qute the memory ! So I've come to the conclusion today that our pine tree is firefly central because there were about 30 of them buzzing it before we left seriously looked like a lit up Christmas tree with all those white flickering lights .. and several fireflies were still there when we got back .. I think we failed to get the memo that that pine tree was having a summer firefly party last night.  Here's to Summer Memory Making ! 

Until next time

All new Vintage Goodness at "The Vintage Peddler"

Well keeping shop is always a lot of work .. from finding antique and vintage goods that you love and hope other will love.. to cleaning, tagging, bookkeeping, hauling, and decorating and I'm sure I left a few other things out .. it's not all fun and games. 

Over my 20 + yrs of selling vintage and hand made's I can't tell you how many times I have run into gals that say they are going to get shop space because it looks like so much fun .. Well it is fun but there's a whole lot more to it than fun. It's a never ending daily job that's a lot of work and if you sell online too like I do .. my hours are all day every day .. the door doesn't close at 5 .. cause all Y'all .. get home from work or the gym or pickin' up the kids and then need to ask questions or want quick shipping and there I am at 9 at night wrapping up some goodies to get them out quick so I can make all Y'all Happy ! .. And that's my pleasure.. no complaints here .. I love what I do .. and wouldn't want to do anything else .. but just sharing that it's a full time job and it's not always fun .. most the time but it has it's moments when you just look and thing what am I doing ? 

Well I am having so much fun and I've got lots of work to go with that fun ... with my new shop space at The Vintage Peddler. 

In years past I've always had big spaces like 12 x 14  etc .. that's a lot of space to fill and keep filled. 
This new shop space is 4 ft deep x 12 ft long .. I wondered how I wold like having a shallow long space since I've never worked with those dimensions before .. well I'm loving it .. and Now that I said that about the dimensions it's come to mind that Abbey and I used to do Glitterfest long ago and we set up on 8 foot tables and then went up so this is sorta similar and I loved the challenge Glitterfest was so that's probably why I'm loving this space ..

Anyhow I'm just jibber jabbering on about a whole lot of nothing .. I wanted to share with y'all that this last weekend my shop space got it's first revamp since opening it. I was so blessed to sell my big cupboard and with that sold It opened the door for me to add a few more cupboards and lots of new vintagey goodness .. 

So here it is Enjoy ..

If you would like to visit our shop space .. it is located in "The Vintage Peddler" antique Mall in Springfield, MO 1432 E. Trafficway.

Until Next Time

A few new Sweet Magnolias Farm Original Patriotic Flag Buntings ...

Well the last 10 days have been busy ones for me how about You all ? 

Lots and lots of work days for me lately. 

I'm hoping to get a day away for a little road trip next week but we'll see how that actually pans out. 

I just wanted to let you all know that I listed 3 of my Sweet Magnolias Farm Original Flag Buntings in my Etsy Shop this evening. 

These will be my last 3 for the season until next year. ...

If you're not familiar with my One of a Kind Buntings .. I hand make each one from vintage, antique, upcycled and found remnants of fabrics, laces, trims and even clothing items. 

Thus each one is a One of a Kind.

They are nice size approx 58 inches wide x 34 inches long. 

They look amazing hung and my pictures certainly don't do them justice.

Perfect for your special 4th of July Celebrations !

You can find them in my Etsy Shop HERE

And Here's a peek at the 3 I have available .. Enjoy Y'all !!!

Until Next Time ...
