Sunday Blessings: Amazing Grace

  1. Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
    That saved a wretch like me!
    I once was lost, but now am found;
    Was blind, but now I see.
  2. ’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
    And grace my fears relieved;
    How precious did that grace appear
    The hour I first believed.
  3. Through many dangers, toils and snares,
    I have already come;
    ’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
    And grace will lead me home.
  4. The Lord has promised good to me,
    His Word my hope secures;
    He will my Shield and Portion be,
    As long as life endures.
  5. Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
    And mortal life shall cease,
    I shall possess, within the veil,
    A life of joy and peace.
  6. The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
    The sun forbear to shine;
    But God, who called me here below,
    Will be forever mine.
  7. When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
    Bright shining as the sun,
    We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
    Than when we’d first begun.

Food on Friday: Home Grown

French Toast Sandwich with bacon, egg and spinach with a salmon patty on the side!

After some Zzzz, we headed into Atlanta for a HUGE breakfast... at Home Grown  cafe in Atlanta, Georgia!  Home Grown is a hipster diner.  =)  If you are in the area, you should try it.
They even have a community garden that they raise their own veggies in!

Chorizo enchiladas topped with cheese and eggs!

Cheese grits topped with chili and egg!

The front door had large eggs on it  =)
(Oh, and in the back of the restaurant, was a little thrift store)

Musical Monday: "Man in Black" -Johnny Cash

"Well, you wonder why I always dress in black,
Why you never see bright colors on my back,
And why does my appearance seem to have a somber tone.
Well, there's a reason for the things that I have on.....

.......I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime,
But is there because he's a victim of the times.....
.....And, I wear it for the thousands who have died,
Believen' that the Lord was on their side,
I wear it for another hundred thousand who have died,
Believen' that we all were on their side.....

....Well, there's things that never will be right I know,
And things need changin' everywhere you go,
But 'til we start to make a move to make a few things right,
You'll never see me wear a suit of white....."

Painting the Guest Room (part 2)

 What do you think???

I just love it- any time of day, any lighting- I love it!  =)  (I keep going back and looking at it!)

One of the things that I did was cut a scalloped template out of a piece of milk jug- traced it all the way around the edge of the wall & ceiling, and painted it twice. =)   
 (I was extra sore, but it was worth it!)

I can't wait to finish decorating this room.  Do you have any decorating tips/idea? 
(I know that I'll do something radical to that lamp....)


((part 3))
 Paint color: "Refresh" by Sherwin-Williams.  If you have pinterest,
search 'sherwin williams Refresh paint', and you'll see some good examples.  =)

Musical Monday: "Old Fashioned" -Adam Davidson

...I'd rather walk (in a relationship) than have to run (from a relationship)...

     ...a good old fashioned friendship building love to last for me and my pretty girl...

(embedded below or listen to it HERE)


It has always been my thought that marring a friend was the way to go-- 
--friendship turns to love. 

(Don't you love these sweaters???)

Summer Saturday~ 3

Sometimes Summer Fun is not doing something extraordinary-
it can be simply getting together and having fun- like the folks in the photo below: eating Watermelon.
(I've never eaten watermelon like this before, so if I did, it would be a memory making event!)

Whatever Wednesday: Vintage Iron

Isn't this a fun find???  And such a cheery box for an iron!  If I went to the store to buy an iron, I'd buy the one with the cute box!  =)

I came home and found an advertisement for the iron, but could not find the date- I'm guessing 1930's or 1940's...what do you think???
