The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Blossom ~ By ~ Blossom. . .

I adore this message. . .
Blossom ~

. . .and so it does ~

On Crooked Creek!

While living in South East Kansas,
many, m a n y  years ago,
I purchased these verdigris petite wall pockets.
The name of the unique Antique and Gift Shoppe 
was The Brass Pig!

The Southwestern Turquoise hue with intricate detailing 
of the embossing on the iron wall pocket had stolen my heart!

These exquisite wall pockets were purchased
to line a narrow wall in the Laundry Room of our "Dream Home"!

Affectionately known as the "Mud Room", 
the walls were decorated in a subtle palette of tan,
honey yellow with a hint of blue plaid wall paper 
that had large Sunflowers, with a scattering of bees, butterflies, 
dragonflies and ladybugs throughout the wide border.

The whimsical wrought iron butterfly, dragonfly 
and ladybug hooks were the perfect accessory 
on which to hang these wall pockets for our area there. . .
and here in our Dining Room On Crooked Creek!

So many of my dear blogging friends 
have either made a major move in the last year,
are in the process of building a home,
or relocating to a new home ~
that I felt compelled to share these sweet wall pockets with you.

They made the journey across the Prairie 
with "Mr. Ed" and I.  Much like many of you,
we faced numerous doubts, frustrations and 
uncertainties that are commonplace with any move.

But much like these petite wall pockets,
we found the "Perfect Place" here on this side of the Prairie!
Through determination and perseverance,
we count it all JOY for having made the decision to move
to be close to our son and daughter~in~law!!!

Until next time. . .

combined with the peace of God ~ as you follow 
your path full of new adventures 
in your journey of life here upon Earth!!!
Your Best Friend Forever,
