Blog Your Blessings Sunday


If you care to join us acknowledging our blessings go here: Blue Panther


This week a smile was my blessing. I found them everywhere! Pumpkin smiles,(enlarge the photo to see all the smiles) people smiles and the smile I felt in my heart as I worked on a quilt for a neighbor who is in the hospital because her kidneys are shutting down. I hope it will bring her a smile too!

When I get it finished late tonight, I will add a photo of the quilt at the bottom here. I plan to take it to her in the hospital tomorrow after church. Well, this photos is a little later in coming than I planned but it is finally here. I draped it over a chair and turned a corner so you could see the mauve backing. It fits a single bed. On my way to deliver it today.

BEAUTIFUL post. The power of a smile is amazing. I find a smile can defuse a tense situation. It says "good will" through and through. Thanks for this reminder. God bless, friend.

The pumpkins were just plain cute unto themselves all lined up. Then I clicked on it. Cute! Sweet what you did for your friend, Paulie.

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
