Good Day 2016

Hello Priscilla!
and Hey to you too!
It's good to see 2016. I have to say that 2015 was a bit of a rough year for me and my family, so much so that it was about all I could do to squeeze in the very few post that I did get published last year. It would be stretching it to say my blogging days have been waning. 
My youngest son Jack spent a week in Brenner's during Easter break due to a seizure like experience due to sodium. After more test than I can tell you and countless visits, the only conclusion was that he didn't have a good tolerance for sodium (Too Much Salt) Since then we've taken a hard look at our entire diet as a family and I'm happy to say we've all seen extreme benefits from ridding ourselves of most processed foods and really turning those labels around to check the sodium levels in everything; 
heads-up!..It's not the salt shaker that's doing it ...
We're in hopes that by Jack's next check-up they will be able to take him off the medicine for hypertension. 
Then on into the year towards the end of September, my older son Louis was in a horrendous  auto accident in which he spent a month in ICU. To say he's a miracle, is an understatement!  
Praise the Lord! by Thanksgiving Louis had his Jaws unwired  by mid-December he was even released to drive. No hands down-all hands up He's a walking miracle. If you are a doubter I'll have to reaffirm that Prayer Works!!
I had a very blessed Christmas; we had all the children minus one Christmas day and that was my Christmas wish. The Ole man is especially intuitive and gave me a want I've been hankering and wanting, for some time, ..a dressform. 
What Man thinks of that!!
 Well there's Priscilla now! Wearing a beautiful scarf from my daughter.
Yes..I do think Priscilla is a fitting name. 
today she got a little extra protection. 
...a little cover..

I'm looking forward to Good Days in 2016! 
I hope you are too!
Many Blessings and Well Wishes!
Thanks so much for stopping by.

Christmas Wreaths 2015

I've been trying to get my holiday decorations up. I've said in the past, I don't flip the switch into the next holiday. I'm more of a transitional decorator.
I make my wreaths out of running cedar that I find in the woods. 

I think the best decor for anyone is looking to what is relevant to your area. It makes it personal and yours.
I hope you all are doing the little things that make this time special.

Thank you for taking a look at what's been going on around here.
Be Blessed!

Vintage Pillows

Hey and a Good Tuesday to ya! 
Do you ever just wake up with an overwhelming notion to do something? Well, I do and today it was making pillows. Better yet, remaking pillows. 
I titled this post vintage pillows and in a way are. I had some pillows that were looking quite worn and really in need of a redo. I intend on using them in my bedroom so I went with colors and fabric I had used in the quilt I recently finished.

Some of my fabrics that I used were quite old so it really brought the vintage feel to the pillows.

The fabric being older also made me want to use some piping to give the pillows a little more strength in the seams 
and I think it also gave the pillows a little more shape .

You can purchase piping at craft stores but sometimes it's hard to find just what you want in mind.
Sometimes the quantity you want might make it a better choice to make it yourself.
I make mine by sewing a piece of cording or natural rope between the piece of fabric I'm wanting to use .

The first pillow. 
You know that just got me started. I played around with different stuff I had until I had satisfied my need for pillows.

Thank you for stopping by.
I hope you're inspired to make some pillows too.
Be Blessed!
