A Good Standard of Living




Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business
and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life
may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.

1 Thessalonians 4:11-12

Sew Pretty!


If you sew, here is an item that is very inexpensive to create, but FULL of cottage sweet charm! I haunt the thrift stores all the time and I find these bushel baskets in abundance. I think I paid about 45 cents for this one!

I painted it a pretty French blue and trimmed it with Paris pink and roses. I sewed a lining in a cute pink stripe and I think this came out so great. I use it next to my bed for my books and magazines. There are so many ways you could use one in your home.





Even if you can't paint flowers, just the blue and pink alone is really fresh and pretty. As I have mentioned before, you can find rose decals all over eBay and that is a good option if you really want the roses.
