holding onto HOPE a little harder...

the power of PRAYER make us stronger!

{with love}

today is a grand day for a blessing!

i'm standing with my coffee at my kitchen window this morn'...
my pretty little shamrocks are waiting to be worn...:)

An Irish Prayer
May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.

{with love}

mixin' up some more sunshine!

good morning, sweet friends!

about a week ago, i  posted a little ditty

about making one's own sunshine

i live in the Pacific Northwest.

we have been missing mr golden sun for awhile now.

so...let's mix up another batch of

brightness!  grab your sunscreen and enjoy!

my rug needs a roomate...and what we did this weekend!

when i am looking for

oatmeal&rust inspiration, another

place to be, is with
Donna at Funky Junk Interiors.

her designs are notably rustic and ruff hewn.

 she definitely plays with the natural

values of color that i love...

when i visited her yesterday... and today...i found a kindred spirit!

 transition...i think i may have Funky Junk bones!

(note the unfinished wall behind ~ soon to be

tongue and groove pinewood, painted warm white).

i'm not certain how the purple (a top the window), eeked into the

photo...i think it's a tiny gift of sunshine from God

or maybe a little PacN'west purple rain!

Donna added some blue and sage
when she brought the outside ~ in!

the only thing missing from her photos...

is my living room rug! 


yesterday, Mr D and i worked

on the guy's landing place...

all of the painting is done...were ready

for the tongue and groove pine...

we're still married (ha!) and talking.

remember the photos from last week? is the transition so far...

( i apologize about the quality of the photo...

it was taken at early this morning)

last week!

this morning before work...


now that we have worked our buns off

all weekend long, and have lost an hour of sleep...

with a yawn and a big s-t-r-e-t-c-h!

we send you hugs!

happy Monday!
happy daylight saving!?
