I am in love with Pier One flameless candles. I just found out they also have timers on them. I purchased the one above for my sister-in-laws birthday. They even have scents. Why didnt' I think up these candles? Safe, beautiful and they last forever. I think they are reasonably priced too, at 14.95.
This lovely Madonna and Child was my Christmas gift from friend Jennifer, last night. I think it is lovely. Sometimes Holy things are spooky to me. My great aunt and my Grandma lived together after their husbands' died.
They had a picture of Jesus with a crown of thorns and his heart showing with thorns around it too. I think It is the Sacred Heart of Jesus depiction. It creeped me out as a child. I hated to even walk past it in their hallway !
This statue is soft and lovely. Even the Babe's hands and fingers are expressive and joyful. Thanks Jen even though you don't read the blog.
I am going to sit and knit in waiting today, on the blanket.
Lucy Lou is close to delivering and I am hoping the kittens come today. I'm praying to St. Francis for Channon's Gretchen who was attacked recently and has recovery complications and I'm praying for Lucy Lou and her kittens safe delivery.
Aside from that I am still rejoicing that I am not working night shift this weekend! The novelty as not worn off.
I'm making Sweet and Sour cabbage soup for us for dinner tonight.
New recipe...I'll give you our review of it tomorrow.
