Hello Everyone! Sorry to only have posted once this past week. I just ran out of steam, so I didn't get on my computer at night.
I do want to welcome my new followers to my blog, along with any new visitors and my faithful readers. I appreciate each and every one of you! Thank you so very much for your kind comments. Please forgive me if I don't always respond either on my blog or yours. I want to, but it will just depend on available time and my energy!
|Gotta keep my recliner covered|
because the kitties think it's theirs!
Yesterday I was in the mood to hit up one of our local thrift shops. I tried on a few things (bought a blouse and a sweater half-price for a total of $4.50!), and as I left the dressing room, I spotted these framed prints. Their backs are stamped Marsel Mirror Brooklyn NY and written in ink pen is the year 1978. No artist signature or name. Don't you think they look like and maybe are Audrey Hepburn?
They were only $5 each and the right coloring for my bedroom, so I splurged. Plus they reminded me of Downton Abbey as well ... and the book I'm reading entitled The American Heiress by Daisy Goodwin, which is very Downton Abbeyish, and the writing is well done, I think. The main character is even named Cora! So far there have only been a couple paragraphs I've skipped over because I'm just not interested. But really, it's 99.99% good story. (I'm about 2/3 through.)
Anyway, I had wanted something for over my recliner, but my grandfather's paintings were either too large or not right. I had looked through my old calendars and didn't find anything that grabbed me either. In time I'll rearrange the Audrey prints and add something else because of there being a little too much space.
Seek the Lord and His strength;
seek His face continually.
1 Chronicles 16:11 NASB
Hope you have power wherever you are and can keep cozy, read, and sip tea today!
