Vintage Glamor Photos of Me & Some Other Fun Stuff from Mother’s Day

Retro Me

I hope you all had a fabulous Mother’s Day!  I am taking time away from my traditional , more professionally written articles of inspiration, to just casually talk to you about what’s going on.  I have been super busy the past week with some really cool things we did for Mother’s Day  (among other things), and so that is why there hasn’t been an article in the past week (and no FMF poem).   One thing you may (or may not) know about me, is that I LOVE to host theme parties.  Specifically themed TEA parties!  This all started about 4-5 years ago when I planned the first (very small) tea party as a surprise birthday gift for my Mom.  She , her good friend and I enjoyed it so … Continue Reading

Antique Framed Vintage Christmas Cards-Inexpensive Christmas Gift Idea & Holiday Home Decor

Vintage Christmas Cards Framed

  I love Vintage things and Shabby Chic or Cottage Decor, so I decided to “Make” a few Vintage looking Christmas gifts this year for some of the people on my list.  It was so simple and so inexpensive to do, yet makes an impressive gift that looks like you spent much more.  There are only 2 things you need to do:   Hunt for 5×7 Antique picture frames Hunt for Vintage Christmas Cards   In my case, I didn’t have to do much hunting, because the things I found are not real antiques, just brand new vintage looking items.  It literally took me all of about 5 minutes to find and put together my gifts.  However, if you are a person who enjoys garage sale hunting, or antique mall … Continue Reading

Tip of the Week-Free Bible App & What I Love About It!

About a year ago I found a really easy and awesome way to read daily devotions (daily inspirations-including Christmas reading programs at present) and/or the bible with a bible app for my smart phone!  Don’t stop reading this if you don’t have a smart phone, because this tip I have to share today also works with a regular computer, or tablet (such as an Ipad).  You may also be able to use it on an electronic reader (such as a nook or kindle) , but I am not 100% sure on that since I don’t know how those work.   There is a Free bible app that you can use with any electronic device, be it an Android, an Apple, or a computer.  I never knew anything about “apps” until … Continue Reading
