Just Sharing


Victorian House, paintings by Dennis Lewan, American

Hello Ladies,

Here are some pictures from pinterest that you might like:

Fabric from Hobby Lobby, and a truck ornament from Walmart.

This year at home, all the ornaments are plastic from-you-know-where,  and are in boxes, bowls and baskets, instead of on the tree.

These brass musical notes  holding the pages here are available at the Dollar Tree:

Below are nice looking feathers which come in a box of 6, in other colors as well...

These gold balls are plastic from Dollar Tree.

More plastic ornaments in this box.

These look like chocolates a should be displayed all year.

How do you like the teapot ornament? It comes in pink, as well.

Also some old patterns which are good for getting ideas for designs:

More of this festive house.

Glittery wreath, snowflake stocking holder and green balls from Dollar Tree. It sure is nice to have these unbreakables.

Unbreakable butterfly ornaments in a bowl:

Except for the red truck, the ornaments in this post are from previous years.  Last year these chalk board bags were sold in red, green and black at the dollar store. One side of the bag is glittered and glossy.

Inauguration Elegance

(Above: A Winter Rose by Sydney Kendrick)

Perhaps some of you stitching ladies who enjoy sketching and designing your own clothes might be interested in sharing your ideas for modest inauguration clothing for the ladies in the presidential party.  

These women who will be in the public eye really need to set an example and wear more modest clothing, especially on inauguration day, which has several events, both indoors and outdoors. Maybe their designers need some help. (Smile)

It might also be nice to find pictures of modest elegant styles on the web that would work.

The election may not have been the way everyone wanted, but maybe we can have fun with fashions. There should be ten parties running at the same time so that we can have more choices :-)

The author of this blog would be happy to post your clothing designs for all aspects of the inauguration, not just the outdoor scene.  There will be a dinner, as well, and these women could use some common sense ideas.  Below is the first design submission, from the author of Homeliving :-)

The hat has a fluffy white fur trim with a knit wool piece that fits snugly over the ears.

The coat is white wool. 

 All trims on boots, cuffs, coat front, hat and gloves are  faux  fur. 

Perhaps the dinner gown sketch will appear here soon.

The notes say, "For once in the history of this country it would be nice if someone had the common sense not to hold the inauguration ceremony outside on the coldest day of the year." Can they not do this indoors? With modern cameras and such, it can be broadcast live indoors.

 If they do, it would be better if even the men wore warm hats covering their ears. They need to learn from other cold climate dwellers like the Russians, Danes, Swedes. Their officials dress warmly and are also quite fashionable.

Drawings for the evening gowns will be added to this post.

More coats: wool and lined for that cold day.

Look for the gowns some time in the future on this post.

Ladies Praying

1Timothy 2:1  I exhort therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings, be made for all men;
1Ti 2:2  for kings and all that are in high place; that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and gravity.

Hello Dear Ladies,

After a couple of decades of government liberalism where the foundational Biblical family and business values were torn into shreds and trampled into the dirt, many women were "hoping for the best and planning for the worst" in this election. 

 Homemakers everywhere were fasting and praying for relief from the liberalism that was forced upon the citizens of this country through ridiculous laws. In this election, which the arrogant media said would not elect Trump, God graciously answered these prayers and gave relief. The country chose a businessman for President.

The first thing Vice President-elect Mike Pence said was "I come to this moment deeply humbled: grateful to God for His amazing grace." See video below.

You might not see much of this video on the alphabet channels because it gives God the glory.

Yes, do offer thanks, but please remember to continue your prayers for the new president, that God will "guide, guard, direct and protect"  him. It is important not to bask in relief of victory but to be diligent in prayer about the future. As for the candidate not being exactly Christian in every detail, remember how God used Cyress the Great and called him "my servant."

It is encouraging that this President and his family are so present online with Twitter and other accounts, living openly, unlike so many of the elected judges and other officials. Some elected people cannot be located anywhere and people do not know where they live or who their families are.  

Pray the new president will not get sucked in by the politcs-as-usual in D.C. They say you can be in touch with everything until you get to Washington, and then it is a different world, where it is easy to lose touch with reality.

One overseas friend phoned and said, "It is so typically American that an elected person will thank his parents and thank God and introduce his family."

Prayer is the anecdote to the storms of life. Instead of having an emotional meltdown when there is stress, be a hero and rise to the occasion by letting your first response always be prayer.  And, speaking of responses, to quote several friends, never allow anyone's bad behavior to cause you to forget your good sense and your polite manners.  Never retaliate.

Phillipians  4:6  In nothing be anxious; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
Php 4:7  And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.

Women at home can appreciate Trump's concern about having peace, that U.S. citizens may live in peace and tranquility by not allowing government to meddle in other governments. Be grateful for this but be ever vigilant in prayer for his continued success in whatever is good and lovely for America, because the political policies of this country affect people in other countries.

Remember not to place complete trust in the media. The press spreads a lot of things that are simply not true.
(Above: overseas media claims that uneducated people wearing their hats backwards were responsible for the outcome of this election.)

 One of the things the press is now spreading overseas is that Trump was elected because of a lot of ignorant, uneducated country bumpkins sitting in old trucks eating corn on the cob that voted for him.

Well, media, the American people might be country bumpkins and love old trucks, but they can read the ballot well enough  to put an "x" where it belongs.

 In spite of the lifetime  media propaganda (most news anchors have been seen every day for some people's entire lives, whereas a president only lasts four to eight years, so you have to ask the question about who is the greatest influence) many Americans, despite their "education" still know right from wrong. To quote a famous person, "Never let University stand in the way of your education."

Usually this blog is dedicated to whatever is good and lovely, and apologies are extended to those who may be upset by this post.  Please enjoy the photographs and paintings, and don't forget to pray.

Yes, Americans like their old trucks. And they are the ones who are so tolerant of the things that go on that impose  on their freedom.

They may seem like old country hicks to you, World, but it is a mistake to push them too far. They will peacefully close the gates to the things that threaten their families and their property and businesses.

The media says it was a bunch of uneducated country bumpkins wearing their hats backwards that caused this election result in the House of Representatives, the the Senate, the Governorships, and the Executive Office. Eventually this country bumpkin vote will result in the appointment of good judges on the Supreme Court that will honor the Constitution and the Bible. 

These truck-driving country bumpkins are the ones that build your houses, fix the plumbing, landscape your property, grow your food, construct highways and bridges, plow the snow, fish in rough waters and drill for oil in cold, isolated places.

It is the commercial truck drivers that deliver goods and products to your stores...

...including this one. People called Sam Walton, who was a successful businessman that provided jobs for thousands of people, a "country hay-seed" because he refused to part with his old truck and get a cadillac. He asked, "Where would my dogs ride?"

                                     Maybe there will be some fabric with trucks like this printed on it. A yellow hat would go with.

Everyone around here has an old truck. Some are kept for sentimental reasons, such as their grandfather bought it, or it  was their first truck. That is the case with this brown Scottsdale here just outside the window.
Americans do what they like: keeping old trucks and old, time-tested proven values.
Choosing a business executive for the Executive Office makes more sense than choosing a politician, because a businessman is less likely to give away the store.

Prayer is the most valuable thing we can offer.

This speech shows a business man's approach to the Executive Office:

Many women are happy about less money going overseas for liberal causes, and less free stuff at taxpayers   expense. 
People used to teach that you have to run the country the way you would run a home by keeping out of debt, protecting your people, helping them in their future, prospering, etc. Now, the home is so broken, it would be difficult to use that comparison. We need home improvement just as badly as new government.
