Did I say free, yes I said free Vintage Clipart!

I love these freebie vintage images. I used one for my etsy banner, in fact. Check out this blog: Far Far Hill for a bunch of gorgeous images of yesteryear. You will have to click on the buttons for "free download".

Wedding in Review

I just realized after being married now for 9 months, that I never did a wedding post on this blog.  So I thought I'd share a few of our best wedding photos by the fabulous Adam Mowery.
My husband and I met online, I'm from CA and we now live here in his home state of NC.  I wanted a simple vintage Irish wedding but added a few Southern touches, too.  I'm wearing my mother's dress, that I altered to fit my 50's style. I loved the little chapel where we held the small ceremony, it's hard to find anything like that where I'm from.  My niece and nephew stole the show as the adorable flower girl and ringbearer. And David and I were so pleased with the music that was all done by Barrowburn, a local Celtic band. And I almost cried when my brother led us all in worship and added a custom line to David's favorite worship song. All that stress was for naught, because the Lord brought it all together perfectly. No, it wasn't my dream wedding but it was a simple and sincere celebration and committment before the Father. AND I just happened to get the most loving husband in the history of the world!

A Full Heart and Silent Mouth

There is so much that the Lord is teaching me and speaking to me about right now that I'm occupied with listening. I'm not able right now to assemble it into words appropriate for my blog yet.  But, I feel so undeservedly privileged to fellowship with Christ in my suffering and watch Him turn my pain into something good.  Friend, if you don't know Him, you are missing out on a different kind of life, that I dearly want you to know.

My recent miscarriages and chronic illness have kept me from doing as many creative things as I normally like to do and share with you.  But, I thought I'd post a photo of one thing I made recently.

Merry Christmas!
