I spent the day yesterday at Judy's....exchanged gifts,
This cute box~which she MADE!
..a sweet Valentiney sign, but I think it could be used all year round!!
Here's the back..which is just as cute. Of course, she made this too!!
I gave her a little gift as well..
another mini pocket album..(I'll show you the whole thing in another post)
We have such fun with each other..exchanging gifts,craft ideas, and secrets! She hears things from me that I don't tell anyone else. I know she loves me THAT much!! ;-)
She had the table all set for us and the teapot was filled with fragrant tea.
Lunch was homemade Butternut Squash soup (one of my favorites!)..and I mean homemade, as the squash came from their very own garden!
And when I sat down..a delight to my eyes! She had made this adorable frame with pics of Steve and me and our darling granddaughter!!
And next to it is a picture of my mom and Judy taken on Judy's 50th Birthday. It sorta felt like my mom was there. Judy misses my mom as much as I do. Somehow that brings me comfort.
Spending time with Judy nurtures me, strengthens me,and makes me want to be a better person.
She exudes grace and gratitude.
She makes her life an art form! Through cooking and homemaking, decorating and crafts, she's used every one of those talents to bless whoever the Lord brings across her path..and I'm one of them!
Judy graciously allowed me to photograph her guest room. She made the quilt and the pillows..
She painted the chest next to the bed..
Don'tcha just love it?
I think most of the angels she made..
See the one on the left that says "In God We Trust"? She made that one out of a PAPER BAG!!
She cut out the shape, painted in the detail, then stuffed with batting to give it dimension. Clever gal!
She also stenciled the scripture verse and stars on the wall.
AND she painted the angels on the closet doors!! I LOVE this room!! ;-)
And I'm thrilled I was able to share Judy's talents with YOU!! Hope you enjoyed!
Thanks for a wonderful time, Judy! I love you!! :-)
