Sharing an Internet Nugget of Truth !

“God is not a belief to which you give your assent. God becomes a reality whom you know intimately, meet everyday, one whose strength becomes your strength, whose love, your love. 
Live this life of the presence of God long enough and when someone asks you, “Do you believe there is a God?” you may find yourself answering, “No, I do not believe there is a God. I know there is a God.”

~Ernest Boyer, Jr.

Where has my mojo.... gone away to....???

These are just a few pictures I collect from various fellow-sewists on the web.   No, not mine.   Just inpsiration....  a bright future!   I changed my sewing room into a place of reflection, reading, computer browsing and sewing.   Kinda in that Order !!!

A place of serenity.... music and telelvision.  Even old VHS tape player, DVD and a good cable box!!!

These are a few of my favorite things !

My mother used to refer to me as a chickadee .. so the green tint, hand painted item was my match to the January Royal Albert cup and saucer!  And then I saw pretty hankercheif dollies for an accent item!
 My new blogger friend at Rose Chintz Cottage noted.... "Life should be savoured; sipped like a cup of tea.  (Author unknown).  Oh so true.... must I wait until January ~ my birthday month or not?  Not!!
So.... I make a wonderful sale on 19 pieces of Royal Albert China....  something I'd never heard of.  But the garage sale - sale price was $40.00!  (picture below)
Lady said "Yes, I was with my aunt the summer in England when she bought this set..."

The single pieces I'm buying, collecting are costing a bit of a penny in comparison to my great garage sale hit!
Now, for the dainty, peaceful tea sipping days.....  I have long been drawn to the huge, magnificent, muscular, survivalist instinct, the face and eyes, the body always leaning forward..... The Buffalo.   It's even the state animal for my state of Oklahoma!

I think I'll run back to the Antique shop for this!

A quilt shadowbox! I'm lovin a good cuppa Tea, a pretty tea cup collection

I've got a new itch... to match my quiltin craze!

 It's collecting great tea cup... to sip my afternoon tea!  Not just show and sittin pretty!
I first garage saled the Royal Albert pretty - gorgeous bone china.  

Don't know if it was glaze coated or not.... I began to soak (overnight by baking soda.... and now a new stain may be set in...???)   Anyhow - I Love it (bought the 6 pc Lavendar Rose setting cheap) !!  I'm gonna use it...yeah!!

But the latest cup sits low, larger round lip and my thumb is so comfortable.  It's porcelain... I like better a little weight in the finish of the cup.   What does RWO mean????
