Don't waste a moment - scroll down and sign up for the yellow rose umbrella giveaway! I've had a few inquiries about the yellow cake server over to the left... That is one of the items that our Lovely Award winner, E. Dean Designs carries. They have beautiful roses on nearly everything! The cake server is a little pricey but I've never seen anything like it anywhere else.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Here at my house everyone of us is tired! We need a weekend to recover from the weekend! Even hubby called in today.
I said something horrible to him last night and it was so undeserved! How is it that I've been married to this man for nearly 10 years but the experiences of my 1st marriage still loom over me, cause me to be fearful over things that no longer exist?! ...So, ladies today I must humble myself and apologize. Sorrow for my words. Sorrow for not trusting God, yet again. You see, my 1st marriage was full of abuse and cheating and unkindness - on both sides, in a way. So what does that have to with now? The Bible says it best, "To the pure, all things are pure - but to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure." My current husband has lived a pretty "pure" life so he doesn't have the instinct to be untrusting, fearful or defensive. I do. I know that God rescued me from a bad marriage and I know that my hubby now and my entire life is a blessed gift from God!! But counting our blessings isn't enough, is it?! And that's the rub!! I've been thinking that this topic is something that I need to address here but, first, I have to pull the log out of my own eye and take care of the issue within my own home. So, today is humble pie day.
While I had some quiet time last night (yep - cause he wasn't speaking to me), I journeyed over to Fifi's blog and noticed that she had some photos of my favorite designer, Magnolia Pearl's home. UGH - do you see those tin ceiling tiles???? No, I didn't go back to the Pec Thing and get them, but I was kicking myself when I saw this photo!
But there's wallpaper designed to look like tin ceiling tiles... maybe that's the way to go. Although, wallpapering a ceiling seems like a nightmare! So I've decided that today I'm going to start the dinning room curtains instead. Or... I might go lay down with my husband for a bit.
