"The aged women likewise, that they be in behavior as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; that they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:3-5

About Me

Oregon, United States
I am a happy, Christian, wife and post-homeschooling mother. I have spent the last several years homeschooling and now I am "adjusting" to a new season of life as "empty nester". In 2010 we moved to be Host/Caretakers at a Bible Camp. We look at our ministry here as preparing the way for the gospel to be shared as well as encouraging believers in their daily walk. I am a farmgirl at heart and love the country, I love gardening and food preserving. I also, love tea parties!! I also have a Titus 2 heart and want to share with anyone willing to listen and learn. I love having friends over and teaching them how to make bread or put up pickles. And as we work, I love to encourage them to love their husbands and their children and to be Keepers at Home and all that implies and I love that you let me do that here!! Hope you enjoy visiting my farm and walking through a journey in life with me.......I hope at some point in time I can encourage you in your walk and in your home..........

Good Intentions Gone Right............

For my Anne Tea I had cut out over 30 little silky mice. I was going to give them to the ladies as their take home gift. Probably serving it on the plate with their plum pudding. :)
Good intentions.
Well, I did not get very far with that idea.......after the tea, I got 5 done and put a little bit of lavender in them to give to the girls who helped me serve.
So, since I have so many little silky funnels sitting here needing stuffed and crafted into something, I looked at them and came up with this........

Added little pearly beads and velvet ribbon and made them into Christmas ornaments.....

They hang in pairs from velvet ribbon attached with beads......

I am also working on these star ornaments.....

Calico on felt with calico on the back and a
blanket stitch.....in three patterns.....
All for the Christmas Boutique at my
Nutcracker Tea!!!
