Tea for Two

 I often invite a friend over for tea. It makes for a delightful afternoon.

Happiness is sharing tea with a friend.

Alpaca Ranch

 A couple of years ago I snapped this picture of a local Alpaca Ranch. There are several in the area. 

The clouds looked like they were parting. Maybe for rain :-)

 Sometimes it's just fun to dress up for dinner.  With pretty dishes and silverware from yesteryear.

A touch of Blue

 A mix match of antique and modern dishes and silverware.

I am so loving our warm weather, where we can open up the house and enjoy beautiful breezy days.

These Tangled Threads


These Tangled Threads by Sarah Loudin Thomas is a story about the Biltmore Industries in Asheville North Carolina between 1916 and early 1920's. 

Lorna Blankenship was a master weaver, who trained new hires to weave. High spirited Gentry was never interested in weaving, but her grandfather abandoned her at the Biltmore when she was just 13 years old. Lorna and Gentry clashed right from the start. Woodworker Arthur Westcott had a patient heart of gold, and would do anything for Lorna. As they seek redemption from lies and mistakes that were intertwined from past choices, there is forgiveness, grace and unconditional love. Healing wounds and setting free from guilt and loss.

The story covers different time periods. Getting the characters and timeline straight was confusing at first. But over all, the story was well written.

This was a clean historical fiction novel.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from Bethany House. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

Eclipse 2017

I was in Ohio in August 2017 when the eclipse happen during my stay there. 

My friend and I made these boxes to watch the eclipse.

It was a fun project, and we did watch the eclipse for the brief time it passed over. 

The beauty of this sunset that followed made it worthwhile.
