I started these Friday posts late last year and fell away from doing them for a while.
This has been a very mixed up week with different things going on.
We attended a memorial service for a friend who was diagnosed with leukemia in December. His journey was brief. A really great thing happened in that it brought his family together. He had been divorced 40 years ago and then married my friend Linda who had a son and was also divorced. Divorce has a way of splitting families up. His one son chose to live with him for a while but the other son and daughter stayed with their mother. They came together and stood by his side with Linda and her son during his last week of life. I'm so glad for him that in the end he was blessed by this and that everyone put their own personal agendas aside.
During the memorial this gentleman played Amazing Grace on his bagpipes. I have to tell you it caught us off guard and was very emotional. Afterwards I asked if he'd mind if I took his picture. He went right into a pose very quickly for me! He's done this before for sure!
John would have loved this. He was part Scottish and this would have meant a lot to him to have this special moment in his honor. RIP John Miller
Spring is approaching...
My mind is already on changing things up for spring and Easter is going to be here before we know it! Our son and daughter in-law gave me this iron metal wreath candle holder at Christmas. I messed around with some ideas and finally landed on something. I'm working on it for a Spring/Easter look- pictures to follow soon!
For Valentine's Day we went out on a shopping excursion. I'm looking for a piece of furniture but haven't found what I want yet. I did find this adorable white elephant candle holder that grabbed my attention. It's made by Three Hands Corp. I found a link for it in case anyone wants one for themselves. You can see the link "here". I set one of the boxwood spheres on it instead of a candle. I'm still playing with it so we'll see how I work it in.
This garden angel was on the tray where the Elephant is now so I decided to bring her into the bathroom. I've always liked things garden related in the bathroom so I decided to give it a try here.
I cut a candle ring into three pieces and worked it around. Last time I showed it she was still plain.
That little clock came from Hobby Lobby last year I think and the soap dispenser is from Pier 1 (close out). I did a post on my little bathroom last year and you can see it "here".
A quick look out of my office window. The squirrels are actively seeking out any acorns that they can find.
They've been digging holes and actually doing under the snow for them. There are piles of debris from their munching all over the snow.
Spring is a ways off for us yet (usually April) but we have way less snow than usual that it won't take long to melt once it starts. So far this winter hasn't been as bad as it was the past 2 years so I'm hoping for a little earlier spring here!
Wishing you a great weekend!
