From My Daughter's Hands

Many of you don't know that me and my hubby
of almost 37 years have 4 daughters~~not a boy in the mix!

Yes, in fact, I am married to a saint! 

We are so proud of them and all of their
amazing qualities and talents.

Our oldest, Sam {on the right} has come on board, as a creator for my Etsy shop, Timewashed.  She is so gifted and resourceful.  She sews, crochets, knits, and does beautiful work.

Here is her first item that I have listed
in the shop.  I will be listing a couple more

A beautiful cotton crocheted bowl with face
scrubbies.  These bowls are so versatile
and add wonderful textured, handmade 
goodness to any home decor.

And the scrubbies are so gentle and natural
for face cleansing!

The edge of the bowl/basket can be
folded down as in the previous photos,
or left up and filled with whatever your
heart desires.  

I hope you'll check the shop out tomorrow and see what is new!

I made this rustic little bucket last night

This would be a pretty and unique way to package a small gift or gift card for someone special, or to fill with cookies or candy for a charming Valentine's or anytime gift!

Sam knit the pretty square piece
it is sitting on.  

Don't you just love
the texture of knit and crocheted items?

Thank you, as always for stopping by,
sweet friends!

I hope your week is filled with little
joyful surprises and goodness!

Share your love today!

Fast Times

Can you believe that today is the last day of 
January?  Whew!  We are living in some seriously fast times,
aren't we?

So, as time flows quickly by like rushing rivers after days of rain, how
are we to respond?

For me, I am constantly asking God to keep me focused on the main things.  In my life, the main things are Him, family,
friends, and people in general. 

We all know that the saying is true. 
All we have is


I believe wholeheartedly that God's greatest desire for us in this life is to


He wanted us to do this so much that Jesus gave a new commandment...

A new commandment I give to you, that you love
one another; as I have loved you, that you also
love one another. 

By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have
love for one another.   
John 13:34-35

Some are harder to love than others, 
but we still need to love them.

I mean are WE all that easy to love?
{I know I can be a real challenge at times!}

Some of you have had people do terrible things to you; things that may have changed your life forever.  Please know that what I am saying is for life in general.  I do not want to minimize your pain and suffering, and God certainly doesn't either.  He knows all about it. He wants to give your heart peace, and help you through each day. ♥

As Valentine's day approaches, 
I hope you will feel challenged to show love to someone who isn't expecting it from you...  
Someone that maybe doesn't even deserve it.
God will smile when you do!

{Yeah, the One that created the heavens and earth, He will smile when you show love!!}
AMAZING, huh??!!}

Have a wonderful week, my friends,
and share your sparkle and smile
with everyone you meet!

Year Of Change!

Happy Saturday, Friends!

I am keeping busy with shop stuff, and am 
wondering what you are doing this weekend!!

Do Tell!!

It is a year of change for me!
This is the year of the great purge of stuff,
 tweaks to my shop, and committing to a
healthy life style for the rest of my days!

And I am so excited about it all!

But right now, I am just trying to fill up my shop with treasures ya'll will love!

Some pretty Valentine's tags
I have never made anything for Valentine's
before.  What do you think?

Love making little art collages and tags with
positive messages!  The little rhinestone
crosses are a personal fave!

Love this little vintage bottle, too!
Not sure if it is just a bottle or
a cruet, but it is just so cute!

Hope your weekend is fabulous!
Do share what you are up to, ok??

Be Happy!!
It is a choice, you know?
