I'm sitting at my table with four chairs which I got at a yard sale. I love it. I got a really good deal on it. I also got the coffee cup I am holding for .25 cents to add to my collection. Below is another picture of me sitting at the table. There are about three things different in the picture can you find them?
If you said, I moved the flowers you'd be right. If you said it's now afternoon, you'd be right. If you said that I am wearing pearls you again, would be right, but can you guess WHY I am wearing pearls? I will let you think about it for a minute. Let's move on...
I found these fun decorator plates for my walls for a dollar each.
My sister Sharon is helping me to decorate my walls and plates really livin things up.
It will be fun to see how they look.
I got this fake tree for $5 and the plates on my once bare dining room wall for $1 each. Remember my blank wall? I'm so happy to now be decorating it.
Have you guessed WHY I was wearing the pearls in that picture yet? Well, first of all I am wearing them just for fun. My husband gave them to me many many years ago and I never have felt comfortable in them. I recently saw two women wearing them so it made me want to get mine out. I will give you a hint about the pearls: it has something to do with wearing them while cooking. Here is a close up of my pretty coffee cup.
Okay, here is my inspiration for wearing my pearls. My two daughters and I went to see the movie "Julie & Julia" and loved it. It was really cute and interesting about Julia Child's life, and really cool that Julie has a blog. Both of these ladies wear pearls while they cook. I thought I'd try it too.
Now I will show you my best treasure. Below is the 1966 hardback of Mastering the Art of French Cooking by Julia Child!!! I had been searching for it for awhile now and found it for $1.50.
I know that this might seem trivial to pray about, but I actually prayed that I could find it and God blessed me with it. I'm so thankful and I look forward to using it.
I pray about big things and small things and I want to acknowledge that God answered this prayer of mine even though it was tiny. This is Kathi saying "Bon Appetit" "Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart." Psalm 27:14
