fabric-gift-wrap-for-Christmas-gifts-1024x680fabric bag

This year, my daughter Erin suggested we wrap gifts in fabric – not paper. I think it’s a great idea as we can re use the fabric year after year. I picked up fabric scraps at the thrift store. I also came across some lightweight cotton place mats that will be a nice size to wrap a small gift.  I have a few older table clothes that my mom sewed for me many years ago. I think I’ll re purpose them into wrap also. I hope you give green gift wrapping a try.

I’m getting into the Christmas spirit now. I wrapped up a few gifts that will be mailed in early December. If I get a jump start on things like wrapping and card writing in November, I’ll have time for other things that bring joy during this season.

Scrabble Slam!

With winter here, we’ll be playing more games inside. I found this one today. It is so much fun and fast moving. It keeps your mind active too! Because it’s really just a deck of cards, it’s convenient to take traveling.  Maybe you’ll like it. index

food bank 1Friends, if you are hosting an Easter dinner, would you consider asking your guests to bring along a donation for your local food bank. It’s a great way to share with those who are having food challenges at this time. My food bank does not accept perishable food, so check with yours beforehand. You’ll feel blessed when you drop it off in a day or two. Thanks, Linda

Legend of the Dogwood

An old and beautiful legend says that, at the time of the crucifixion,
the dogwood was comparable in size to the oak tree and other monarchs
of the forest. Because of its firmness and strength it was selected
as the timber for the cross, but to be put to such a cruel use
greatly distressed the tree. Sensing this, the crucified Jesus
in his gentle pity for the sorrow and suffering of all said to it:
“Because of your sorrow and pity for My sufferings, never again
will the dogwood tree grow large enough to be used as a cross.
Henceforth it will be slender, bent and twisted and its blossoms
will be in the form of a cross ~ two long and two short petals.
In the center of the outer edge of each petal there will be
nail prints ~ brown with rust and stained with red ~ and in the center
of the flower will be a crown of thorns,
and all who see this will remember.” Author Unknown

Happy Easter, Friends.

Hi Ladies,

Easter is just around the corner.  Today I was thinking about how I will decorate the table for Easter dinner.  I’ll put a small vase  of daffodils in the centre of the table.  Along with that, each guest will have an Easter Egg Cup at their place setting.  These egg cups are so simple to put together. Just put a little Easter grass in each egg cup and add a few chocolates.  Have a nice Easter.

Note:  I picked these cups up at a flea market for about 2.00 total. This is my second Easter using them as a decoration.  I just love them!
