Family Scene

Psalm: 68:6 "God setteth the solitary in families..."



Table For Tea, by Ghambaro


available from Lovely Whatevers


The most important people in our lives will be our families. The most important investment we will ever make will be in our relationships at home. We can really make a difference at home because we have the time to set a table and eat around it, sharing our thoughts and our values with each other.
Included on this post is the book where I got some of the altered box ideas. This page shows the ice cream containers.
Although it is a Christmas book, the crafts could be adapted to any season or color or theme.

"Christmas With Victoria," Volume VI is a good quality hardback book, well illustrated.

What an encouraging post!

May I appreciate the power I have as a *keeper at home* to show my love for my family in simple, everyday gestures :o)

I love all your posts, LadyLydia, but as a crafty gal myself, am delighted to come upon your craft posts. I enjoy seeing other's use their artistic streak to brighten their home, making it a haven for warmth and hospitality!
Thank you for all your posts!

Lydia,

Are you comfortable sharing more about your family? Like how many children/grandchildren you have? I know you have the one daughter that also has a web site and son that turned 25 a while back.

Oh that looks like a *keeper* of a book. Is it still in print?
I do love your covered boxes and the things that you make.Keep up the good and VERY inspiring work.
I am thankful to be a keeper at home and to have a place where my husband can come home to and want to be here.

In this book the containers are covered in glitter and trimmed with a rope of tinsel. I wasn't sure I could do that effectively so I used the scrapbook papers. Wallpaper borders might also work, but they tend to get too wet for grocery grade cardboard.

As for the book, it is still available and you can get used copies of it on Amazon.com for 5.00 or so.

I have 4 grandchildren, and my parents are still living. I grew up in a family of 9. I do not mention people in the family on the blog much because I don't know if they would like to be mentioned. As for my own life, I've always thought it was rather boring compared to the life of my parents, and so I wrote a book for them about it and am working on another one: Better Than A Dream, in which I show my mother and father in their youth making a homestead in Alaska.
