AngelsWatching


Have you heard the song, "Angels Watching Over Me?"

Part of the words are "All night , all day, angels watching over me, my Lord..."

The lyrics are quite comforting.

I don't know about you, but thinking about angels is not something done frequently.

However, I do believe in them and also believe they have certain protective powers, given to them by God.

A dear, life-long friend, Patti, gave me the beautiful, chippy angel that's shown in this post.

As mentioned before, she's had a rough go, health-wise, this past year.

She's getting better and stronger every day, though, and today is her birthday. 

May angels continue to watch over her (and all of us) and make miracles in our lives.

WHAT, IF ANYTHING, DO YOU BELIEVE ABOUT ANGELS?

The Beauty of a Fall Arrangement


One of the best $8 purchases I made at a yard sale last summer was a big, bursting-with-color arrangement of fall flowers.

Even the metal container in which they were arranged was attractive.


Come fall, the bouquet fit in perfectly on the front hall table vignette.

Flanked by old-fashioned amber glass lamps, the whole scenario has been a welcome sight for many weeks.


The flowers and lamps will stay on the table until right after Thanksgiving.  

Then, they will be whisked up to attic storage to make way for, you guessed it, the magical Christmas holidays!


WHAT IS ONE THING FOR WHICH YOU ARE MOST GRATEFUL THIS THANKSGIVING?

Little Surprises Add to Life's Enjoyment

Sometimes the littlest surprises make life sweeter.

They can take place just about anywhere including the supermarket.


For example,  in our house, we love olive oil.
 
It usually costs about $24.99 for a gallon and that's a lot of money for our grocery budget.

It does, however, last quite awhile. 

While grocery shopping recently, Filippo Berio Olive Oil was on my list.

One can could be found on the supermarket shelf and, lo and behold, it was on sale!

The price tag on it was $18.99, a $6 savings. Yippah!



Does anyone know who Filippo Berio was or anything about his background?
