“Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!” ~ Psalm 100:4 (NIV)

I have been out of the loop for awhile.
I am so thankful for so many things that it is hard to make a list.
Listed are something that come to my mind at the present.

Thankful for God my Father, His Son, and the Holy Spirit

Thankful for my childhood

Thankful that I can get up out of bed and walk

Thankful that I can see

Thankful that I live in a FREE country and can worship as I want

Thankful for my family

Thankful for my Church family

Thanks for stopping by and come back again soon.

I received this chair
from a nice lady on Freecycle.
It is need of some TLC, new fabric that is.
Chair is very sturdy and I love the style.
I am just trying to decide what type of fabric to do it in.

My sofa is a blue and white check, so maybe the chair would look good in a blue and yellow.

Anyway, this is my first attempt upholstering a piece
I will post the finished work when it is completed.

If you have never been to the Freecycle in your area, you can find it by going through Yahoo groups. This is a place where everyone gives away their items instead of filling our landfills. I have given away many things and also have received many items. It is a great way to recycle. Help our Earth. Give it a try.
The Freecycle Network™ is made up of 4,299 groups with 4,721,000 members across the globe. It's a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (& getting) stuff for free in their own towns. It's all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills. Each local group is moderated by a local volunteer (them's good people). Membership is free. To sign up, find your community by entering it into the search box above or by clicking on “Browse Groups” above the search box. Have fun!

Oh What A Night

Some of their hits.
Oh What A Night , Big Girls Don't Cry, Sherry, My Eyes Adored You, Dawn, Hold On , Can't Take My Eyes Of Of You

Thursday night my DH and I went into NYC and saw a Broadway show. The Jersery Boys.

Many of you, I know must have grown up with Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. It was just like stepping back to 1965, my teenage years. If you get the chance to see it, I would highly recommend it. Excellent!!!
If you would like to see clips or hear the music, go here:

Sunny Monday

Today was so beautiful in the Northeast. Sunny but a little chilly.
I went out to some of the local thrift stores and did a little shopping. I found some great buys. I will show them off on Friday at Show and Tell. So come back and take a look.
I can not wait for spring to arrive to my part of the world. I love sunflowers and these are such pretty ones.
I would like these in my yard.
My favorit spring flower is Johnnie Jumpups (Pansies).
What is your favorite spring flower?
Has spring come to your part of the world ?
