WELLLLL, yesterday I joined that Church for I've found the members to be loving children of God who share that love with each other and me too!!! My way of thinking is it really doesn't matter which denomonation we belong to it's the fellowship with others that counts...Bible Believing Churches who believe in sharing the Gospel with all those we come into contact with, as well as sharing what God has blessed us with along the way. We are to help those we see are in need...isn't it awesome when we reach out to give a little something to others how it not only helps them, but it makes our hearts sing too? Soooo I have painting a little painting of a cross in memorance of my joining!!! May we all reach out to help those in need for God will provide a way for us to do just that!!!
Have a wonderful week my friends waking early to have your quiet time with God...that has become the most precious time for me!!!!

While at the Sams' Family Reunion up in Dawthat State Park last weekend Dewey's sister, Helen brought many things but best of all were her Three-in-one Refrigrator Rolls.
Enjoy if you like really soft and fluffy rolls
2 pkgs (1/4 oz each) Active Dry Yeast
1 1/2 Cups warm water
1 Cup Warm mashed potatoes (no milk or butter in them, just plain)
2/3 Cup sugar
2/3 cup shortening
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs (beaten)
7-7 1/2 Cups all purpose flour
In large bowl dissolve yeast in warm water, stir in mash potatoes, sugar, shortening, salt, eggs and 5 cups of flour...beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form firm dough. Turn on floured surface, knead till smooth and elastic, about 5-7 minutes. Place in large greased bowl, turn once to grease top. Cover & refrigerate for 8 hrs or overnight. Punch dough down, turn on lightly floured surface.
For cloverleaf rolls shape each one into 3/4" ball and place 3 together in greased muffin tin.
You can also make 4 small balls and place together in muffin tins.
For pan rolls shape each into 1 1/2 " balls place on greased 9" sq. baking pan.
Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled in size, about 1 1/2 hrs. Bake at 400 degrees for 13 - 16 minute or golden brown. Brush with little melted butter!!!
You will really love these for they melt in your mouth!!
Well a couple more.. Now the walls are greenish, just need to add the chair rail, and trim so the room will be finished..it's take a couple years actually to update some things...Time and ability has been the main reasons for the delay! hehehe
My hubby isn't a painter nor is he a carpenter, but I'm proud of his attempts!
Golly the older I get the faster the days in the week go by!! Can't believe it's Thursday already....one more day and then I have my hubby all to myself for the weekend. I'm like a kid in a candy store waiting our time together...after 28 yrs it's even more important to me!!! Is it true with you as well? Do have a great day creating and praising the Lord for all He does in our lives!!! (((hugs)))

We'd purchased a little buffet with a detachable hutch in dire need of sanding then refinishing...I decided I could do it, and went about sanding both pieces. I then stained it, and wa la...it's really pretty. BUT I wanted to put it in the little dining area where I have another really great find, a square, drop leaf table. Since we put our big, round, oak table in front of the double doors and fireplace we used the old space for my studio...it was nice there, but I decided to add my work space to the spare room that houses my computer, and jewelry making table. You know keep all the "mess" in one room. hehehe
I don't have the door and draws in the buffet yet, but here's what they look like now!!
Actually this ended up matching our bedroom set so I will probably put the buffet in there, and using the top on another table in the dining area...not quiet sure where it will end up, but am happy to say I really love both pieces...and the best thing about it is we only paid $5.00 for them...yep!!! Great find!!!

A little about me!
Am married to a great guy and we've raised 5 of his and my children...they have blessed us with 14 grandchildren. My passion is creating all forms of art, and handmade jewelry. On the side I still make some bouquets for weddings and enjoy playing with our 3 pugs. Living in the mountains gives us such a sense of freedom as we are on 5 acres filled with tall old trees surrounding our little home...we have all kinds of wildlife visiting us daily!!!
