Vintage Pillow Case Idea

Hello girls! I saw this decorating idea on another blog a while back. Do you have a vintage bed pillow case that you want to make good use of? Put your pillow case on a square throw pillow and flap it over! So easy and it show cases the embroidery with a horizontal view. I like the casual cottage look it gives.

Don't give up on the resale shops, girls! I found this case for 25 cents in the linens bin!
Our whole family went to the river for a pick nick yesterday evening. It had been a while since we were all together. The highlight of the trip for me was hearing a huge splash and then seeing a beaver swimming in the river! He swam across and then went up on the bank. I could even see the shine in his big,fat tail! I had never seen one in the wild before so it was a real treat!
Have a wonderful day everyone! You are all precious in God's sight!
Woo-hoo! We got it! We're moving to the farm!!!!

Baby Goods post on my blog today. It will make you smile and get those warm fuzzy baby cute feelings all over!

Lord, I pray if this farm home is to be, you will give Holly and family favor at this time. In Jesus name I pray.

I tell you there are no good things left cheap here! Our GW is ridiculous! Dollar store crap for $5!!!! It is really crazy!
Enjoy your moving ;) I know you will be happy this time!
Hugs, Lisa

P.S. A day at the river with the family sounds like a blast...beavers are so cute, I have had the pleasure of seeing them a couple of times in the wild...I remember one time we were fishing and one came around near the boat, we at first thought it was an alligator eek! lol! :)
