"But home,- that word quickens every pulse, warms the heart, stirs the soul to its depths, makes age feel young again...."
Here are father, mother, child, brother, sister, companions, all the heart loves, all that makes earth lovely, all that enriches the mind with faith and the soul with hope."
~The Golden Gems of Life
By S. C. FERGUSON AND E. A. ALLEN
First published in the late 1800's
These beautiful and encouraging words are from this precious book. If you own an original copy of this book you are truly blessed. If I ever come across a copy, I would hope to be able to buy it. What a treasure it would be.
I hope and pray that you all are having a blessed week. In God's Love, Tami

Those ducks and seagulls were mighty hungry. There is always a huge gathering of them.
Children are the most amazing of God's creation. The joy that their wonderment brings, fills me to overflowing. When we partake in the most natural and simple activities with them, we truly see their heart. A heart that is all for God, and the wonderful world He has created for us to live in. What a blessing.
I pray that each of you is having a productive and blessed week. In God's Love, Tami

I love being at home, and find joy in the rhythm of our days. I feel an immense amount of freedom in homeschooling. I am so grateful for the gift of learning *with* my children.
We can create boundless adventures, learn as we live, and be ever so grateful each moment for the gift of one-another.
I am still in awe of it all. I am *so* thankful that our Lord saw fit to open doors and soften hearts in order to bring my children home to learn. What an awesome God.
I hope and pray that each one of you had a blessed week.
God give you rest tomorrow. Blessings, Tami

This lineup includes most of the little rag dolls and friends I have made for the kiddos lately. There is a pair of vintage Polish wooden dolls, that I fixed up and we gave to Lisa-Marie for Christmas. The boys always want things like dinosaurs, robots, superheros, etc......I aim to please :~) Quite a fine little group of new friends.
I finally managed to get in a little treasure hunting this weekend ~ Yay!
I have been looking for a new sewing/craft desk or table for a while. I found one this weekend for a whopping $17.50........It is vintage and it is made of all real wood. A nice sturdy piece, I love it!
I am a huge fan of crochet, but I prefer to knit. So I am always on the look-out for other people's crochet handiwork. I found this beautiful wool granny square afghan. It just the perfect snuggle size.
