This is a window I saved from the garbage. My daughter was installing new windows in her home and she saved this for me.
The home she lives in was her grandmothers house.
So this window came from a house I lived in 35 years ago.
Just a little about the windows past.
I plan to sand it a little and paint it, then add photos
to the panes. If you have any other ideas, I would be willing
to consider doing something else with it.
Thanks for any help you can give me.

I did my first swap on Sweet Goodness Swaps.
We were to send gifts to our swap partner in Orange and Yellow.
This is my container. We were to think of something unusual.
Mine was a Hot Air Ballon. I used a wicker basket to hold the gifts
and wire to suppend a soccer ball on the top. The ball was then covered
in orange tissue paper to hide the ball. I thought this was unusal.If I ever
did a Hot Air Ballon again. I would make some changes. I would probably
do paperMache for the ballon part.

“Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!”
~ Psalm 100:4 (NIV)
I am thankful that God has unconditional love for me
I am thankful that no matter how many times I mess up,
God is always there to pick me up
I am thankful for the provisions God has given me
I am thankful for my daughter and the grands she has given me
I am thankful that I was raised by a Christian Mother
I am thankful that I know God is in Control
I am thankful that I have a peace of mind
I am thankful that I live in a free country and can worship God as I please

I received my gift package on Tuesday.
What a great surprised awaited me in the basket
First the basket was nice in it's self and that would
have been plenty, but there was so much more.
All these precious items are from Christina @ This Girl Beads
A lovely plate, right up my alley. Along with that, cookies to serve on it.
I received lovely handmade note cards. Love those!!
Next was a silver fork with the tins bent to hold a recipe card and even a recipe with it.
I leave the best for last. A very special ring basket that was handmade by
my partner. I know that took time and talent to make. I really love it!!!

Here is what we had for dinner one night last week.
It turned out very good. It is my adaptation of
another recipe Shrimp and Pasta recipe.
I took out a few items and then add some things I like.
Give it a try when you need something fast and easy
Great enough for company.
Serve with a salad, hot bread and maybe a slice of cheesecake afterwards
8 ounces dry fettuccine pasta
3 cloves garlic
1/2 sweet onion, sliced
1 Head of Broccoli floretts
4 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
salt and pepper to taste
1 pound uncooked shrimp - peeled and deveined
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the pasta, and cook for 8 minutes, or until tender. Drain.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat combine the garlic & onion and saute. Add broccoli, salt and pepper. Simmer for about 3-5 minutes while the pasta is cooking, stirring occasionally. Remove from skillet.
Stir fry shrimp in the same skillet with a small amount of olive oil. Cook until shrimp are pink. Add veggies on top of shrimp. Top with fresh basil strips.
Cook an additional 3-5 minutes. You may want to add soy sauce to your taste.
Toss with pasta in a large serving bowl.
OPTIONAL : mix in 8 oz. of shredded mozzarella cheese.
If using soy sauce I would suggest not using the mozzarella cheese.

For my Show and Tell today, I would like to introduce you to my little pup Chloe.
She is Beagle thru and thru, if you know what I mean. She is always putting that
little nose of her where it does not belong.
My DH and I adopted Chloe last summer. I found her on Petfinder. com. She
has brought much laughter and life into our "Empty Nest" Home. I did not know
how much I missed all the action (without kids) until I got Chloe.
She is a great little girl.
My grandkids really like her and enjoy her also.
So now you have met a member of my family.
Have a Great Weekend.

Lavender Fields Forever.........
It was absolutely beautiful. Oh and the fragrance.........my car still smells sweet.
Next we were back on the road enjoying the drive with no traffic. Things on Eastern LI all change on Friday.
Then we were off to more shopping.
It was a very rewarding day. Looking forward to returning again very soon.
Next trip I will be focusing on all the thrift shops and antique stores.
Hope you all have a blessed weekend. Stay cool and safe.
