Just a Few Things...

I love these 'JOY' boxwood letters tucked into this old Jell-O box.  They would be cute displayed on a mantel or hanging on a wall with some pretty ribbon!
The letters for my 'NOEL' sold, so we used these finds to spell "Jolly."  The spigot handle is my favorite and the finials add a nice touch.
These handcrafted cedar birdhouses and feeders are made by a girl just up the street.  She cuts the wood and sands it to perfection.  They are adorable and I want every single one that she makes!  This one is my favorite with the little birdhouse hanging in front!  Such talent and crafstmanship she has!  I sold one as I was walking in the store with them!

Yesterday was my birthday and my friend gave me this beautiful sign that she distressed and painted!  I just love it!  Around the beginning of school, we had picked a verse for our family to memorize.  We chose, "Act Justly, love mercy and walk humbly with your God." ~ Micah 6:8 
Now I just have to find the perfect spot for it!

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY FRIEND!!! If I lived closer I would have come and taken you out for lunch! I can't make signs but I can treat you to a meal! :-) I absolutely love those boxwood letters...is it real boxwood or faux...I want them in my house! I have 3 windows in my family room that they would look so darling hanging in front of. How long do you think it would take me to drive there to buy them from you? :-)
You are doing so many neat things and I can't wait to see what you will have in store for us next time!

The verse on that sign is one of my favorite "life" verses. I really love your sign.

And I think your whimsical way of spelling things out with other items is so cute. I had to stop for a minute to find the joy, but then I found it.

Ha!I didn't mean to type that the way it came out, but I guess it's a little life truth inspired by this post.

Great one!

I love it all! Especially the verse sign. And, that is a great life verse. Can you imagine how different our world would be if everyone obeyed this verse?
