Daily Blog Prompt & more...

Awesome...found this...they are also on facebook...
Dream Date: BloggerEdition                                                                             If you could invite any two bloggers over for dinner, who would it be and why?
Hmmm... well the first one would be my knitting friend, Jayme, whom I don't get to see very often...  Her blog is a joy to read...she is an excellent writer, changes up songs to her fancy, just alot of fun!  Well, I miss her...
And the second one...oh many...  she is so talented and her world seems so beautiful...would love to see some of those dresses in "real"...

ok, just a note from Psalm 133 v.1
How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!

What I'm working on Wednesday :)  for my niece... shhhh

Started listening to “Off Love and Evil” by Anne Rice this morning.  Wonderful quote at the first part of the book…

“We are all angels with only one wing, only when we come together can we fly.” – Luciano De Crescenzo

guardian angel

…so to go with that quote took a photo of my guardian angel to share…  this was painted by sharae several years ago…
