Finding Angelic Comfort...

While wandering through the internet this afternoon...looking for some soothing and serene images to comfort my restlessness...I stumbled upon this enchanting blog titled...

Signs like angels come in the strangest form...yes...perhaps I'm reading more to it than I should...but I choose to accept these lovely images as serendipitous...if not divine...gifts. Small comforts...little joys...frugal luxuries.

Of course, as always, I'm compelled to share them with you, my good~hearted friends...such kind and kindred souls!

Sending love and good thoughts to all.




P.S. Please go HERE to visit Rosa and her angelic daughter...Randi...my intuition tells me you will find it enchanting!

Enchanted Memories of Grandma Ruby

Summer 2010 has held more than its share of trials and tribulations. My own injuries, illnesses & allergic reactions were the least of them. The saddest and most difficult to bear was the illness and subsequent loss of Mike's mother, our beloved "Grandma Ruby", on August 13th. In her honor, I share these lovely images of storybook homes and gardens that evoke her memory. Please pray for the repose of her sweet soul.

Sending love, good thoughts and gratitude to you all.

Frugal Luxuries: Farm~Stand Bounty

Farm stand bounty...

a quintessential frugal luxury!

We've been visiting Al's farm stand for well over a decade.

I'm still in awe at the creative way he uses newspaper (above) to envelope the strawberries...keeping them safe during their journey home
(he added a trio of stemmed strawberries as a present :).

We hope you are enjoying all the frugal luxuries available during this bountiful farm~stand season!

Sending good thoughts and love to all.

We always stock up on the fresh Roma tomatoes (above, right) whenever they're in season (and so well priced...at five for a dollar!).

"FRUGAL LUXURIES: Simple Pleasures to Enhance Your Life and Comfort Your Soul" was written by Tracey McBride and published by Bantam Books, NY, in 1997. It was the first of its genre to synergize the elements of simplicity, frugality and gracious living.

After more than a decade, FRUGAL LUXURIES has never been out of print and is now more relevant than ever.

"It's our hope that a new generation, faced with a teetering economy, will also find this information helpful and enlightening."
