OK, my friend called me and told me how to link into this other site. Today it is your "wedding dress". I do not have a picture of mine to show you, but my daughter recently got married - March 28th of this year. Her dress was an ivory Pronovias gown. It was beautiful, as was she. One of the pictures shows the back of her dress and the other shows her dancing with her new husband (whom we adore). Since we just had her wedding, I have lots of local sources and market sources for bridesmaid gifts, guests gifts, hostesses gifts, and other bridal information at my fingertips. If you need help or information let me know. I will be happy to let you know which vendors we chose, etc.

where I live

Well, I was trying to link in to another site which was doing a "where you live" for tomorrow and I cannot figure it out (after all, I am new to all this). I will have to get Dina to explain it to me! Sigh! However, I will still show where I live. We are very blessed to have this property. We live on 1 and 3/4 acres. It is a very long God story about how we moved here (too long to go into now). Our backyard is wonderful! God always shows up for my husband and I in nature. Living on this property never ceases to amaze me of God's creativity! We have seen on our property at one time or another lots of birds (hummingbirds are my husbands favorite), squirrels, a fox (saw him last Saturday), racoons, opossum, armadilla, an owl, hawks, falcons, bobcats, roadrunners, butterflies galore, rabbits, moles (unfortunately, they dig up my yard and flowerbeds), and lizards. Oh yes, my son is a photographer and he took these pictures along with the ones of my circular door opening. You can see his stuff at He is for hire for photography, graphic design, etc.

where I live

My circular door opening is a favorite architectural feature in my home. I had saved a picture of a similar door opening from an old Architectural Digest magazine and showed it to my architects to implement in the floor plans. I was going to put it in my bedroom leading to a sitting area and they said to put it out in the open. Together we agreed that it would be a great opening into the coffee bar area off of the entry. The pictures show it with the front door, looking into the coffee bar and looking out of the coffee bar. I made the small piece tucked under the circular door opening from wooden bowls glued together to create the right height. I adjusted the color of some of the bowls, added some beads and tiles and slid it under the circular opening. I also made the art work you see hanging in the entry and the floral in the tall metal piece. I will show you detail pictures of those items another time. I need to get ready for our prayer time tonight with friends.
