Memorial Day Tribute

Hello everyone, today is Memorial Day and this post is to pay tribute to all who gave their lives while serving our country. A few months ago Mandy Lou and I traveled to Honolulu. And while their we visited the Pearl Harbor Memorial. And it is a must see if you ever visit Hawaii. Below are a few  pics taken while there.

 You can read about Pearl Harbor here.

 The picture above and the two following is debris left from the bombing






 

The shrine inside the memorial pays tribute to the men who lost their lives in battle.

 

This picture was taken at the entrance of  the USS Missouri
To all the men and women who have lost their lives protecting our borders, we SALUTE and HONOR YOU!
Because of YOU our Flags still wave. Long may it wave!




Thanks for stopping by!

Bar Stool Makeover

Hi all, this week I have another makeover. Last week's post was a chair makeover, this week it's bar stools. Here's a little history of how I acquired the bar stools. I have a friend named John who owns a thrift store. One day, while shopping in his store I purchased a beautiful 1920's sleigh bed. As I was leaving John informed me that he had a gift for me, since I purchased the bed. My response was, "for little ole me". As he scurried to the back of the store I WAS SO EXCITED and I couldn't wait to see what the gift was. When I saw the bar stools I was SPEECHLESS!!!!!! They were WICKED NASTY! But how could I resist them, they were a gift with purchase (free). And besides they had  great potential. I brought the stools home and got busy. First, they had to be disassembled. Next, I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, so much so I was dizzE (dizzy). lol! I was in such a state of shock, I forgot to take a picture of the seat cushions. Trust me, you don't …

This too shall pass

Hi everyone, 

It has been quite some time since my last post. Two years and four months to be exact, but who's counting. I am posting today to encourage/motivate you. Things are changing so rapidly in our society, and the coronavirus pandemic has most of us on edge. Some of us have never experienced anything of this magnitude, and the thought of illness, losing our jobs/everything we have worked for, and being isolated from family and friends can be quite scary, but be encouraged.



My prayer is that all will be well with you and yours. And that you will be intentional and live on purpose in the days and weeks ahead. Rest assured that this, too, shall pass!


Chat soon...
