at Miss Gracie's House

Here are a few of my favorite pics
...just a few...

I had 2 great barn sales

I love to paint...

but I love to display even more.

I had a blast selling at The Shabby House.

My Family is my biggest blessing.

The triplets made their public appearance
Grandpa took the *big* boys fishing

and Briscoe joined us...

At home, my decorating definitely took on a new look;
The neutrals, browns and creams are slowly making their way in.

2009 also brought some tough days.
days to walk beside my husband
days to hold onto his hand
and days to strengthen our love.
days to pray
days to trust.

my prayer for this year and for every year

What a beautiful treat to view all of your photo creations. The muted coloring in your photos are so vintage and right up my alley. I love the mosaic of your family and children. You are a very talented lady. Super loving family. You are a beautiful blessing to blogland! Thank you for a refreshing stroll into your world. The scripture is a beautiful finishing touch. A breath of fresh air, I can't say enough here!
