Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

It's Monday, that means it's Memorial Day and time for MM with sweet Carissa. I can't remember how long I've been linking up with Carissa, but long enough to know that I always look forward to it. ~smile~

I was out of pocket last Monday because we had been out of town visiting Hubby's sister and her husband in Flowery Branch, Georgia (an Atlanta suburb) What a fun time we had and they are such a delightful host and hostess. Fun times!

While we were visiting in Atlanta we went to a festival in Dahlonega, Ga. It's such a quaint little town and the perfect place for artist and craftsmen. While at the festival we had the privilege of meeting Eric and Jenny Hanson with World Image Mission.  What a precious couple! I want to urge you to go to their website and read about their work and perhaps you would be interested in a piece of their art that goes to support their ministry. They state on their website: 

The intention of World Image Mission from the very beginning has been to invite people to participate in affecting other people’s lives in creative and meaningful ways. 

Again, I urge you to go and check out their website. It blesses my heart when I see a young couple such as Eric and Jenny involved in such a life changing ministry, all in the name of Jesus. 


 I strolled into a shop while in Dahlonega and on the outside of the shop was the sign in the photo above.  I had to chuckle when I read it. I mean, that sign could go in just about every shop we go in, other than the grocery store. And, since I didn't need the cute scrave I have around my neck in the picture above, I left it. Oh, it really was cute, but did I need it? Humm...........


 Speaking of needs.......Hubby saw this Bentley while we were wandering through a mall in Atlanta.  He is checking out the sticker in the above photo and it says $212,000.00.  I mean, who in the world  buys a Bentley?  Last time I checked it certainly didn't qualify as a "need."  

As of today I have a heaping 84 followers.  Can I just tell you that I am so proud of each and every one of them.  And, can I just tell you that I had no idea what a follower was when I began blogging.  When I began seeing them on others blogs, I began investigating as to the "how to" of such.  I read the blog of a delightful gal that has something like 10,200 followers.  Now, she's just an ordinary gal like you and I,  but obviously she's been blogging since she was born and I think she's only about 35 right now. ~smile~  My goodness, I didn't start blogging until I was almost 57 years old so I'll never live long enough to even come close to that number.  But, hey, that's not why I blog, I blog because I want to and everything else about it is "just icing on the cake."  If you are one of my sweet followers then I thank you and appreciate you so much and hope that something I say will bless you and bring a smile to your face.  


Happy Memorial Day to you!  I changed out a few things on our front porch to give a more patriotic look  and will leave it up until after the 4th of July.  Yea! for the great red, white and blue and yes, I'm proud to be an American!! Blessings to you for a wonderful day and week!

  1. Love your front porch!! It is so festive and patriotic. Great job.

    Just so you know -- I love your blog and enjoy every single visit that I have here. So thank you for writing.

    And sigh, $212,000? That's slightly crazy.

    Have a wonderful Monday.


  2. FYI: the link for World Image Mission doesn't go to their website. I googled it, though, and ... their photography is simply breathtaking, and their description of their ministry brought tears to my eyes.

    And let me concur ... each and every visit to your blog is a blessing and pleasure.

    Have a marvelous Memorial Day.

  3. Your front door is just beautiful!
    I always enjoy my visit here!

  4. visiting from MM! your front porch is beautiful! looking forward to visiting you again soon. :)

  5. Your door and porch look wonderful.
    I love the sign in that store, I should remember that when I shop!
    OMG on that sticker price. Congratulations on your followers.
    It's fun as it grows. I haven't got a clue about those who have thousands of followers. The thing with that is that you really can't have a one on one with them. That's what I enjoy.

  6. It does look like you had a wonderful time with family!

    That scarf really is pretty on you! I think you "needed" it! ; )

    That bentley costs more than most people's houses! I can't imagine driving a house down the road. Good grief! To each his own.

    Love the porch decor. I love the season we're in!

  7. Looks like you had a wonderful trip to the Atlanta area...beautiful pictures
    84 Followers...that is awesome..I can see why..I love your blog
    Your front door and entrance area looks welcoming...truly sets the mood for celebrating our nation...

  8. I just know we would have such fun together. Hmm ...maybe one day? You are a hoot and I love that. Love the Bentley but not the price tag. :)

    Love your patriotic photos. And may I say that you are so pretty Lea?

    Blessings and love,

  9. I love everything red, white and blue!! I love the span between Memorial Day and Fourth of July when I can leave all of my decorations up :)

    I am so glad our paths crossed through blogging - but you know that!

    We have a the form of my sister's dog that my mom inherited! Not sure what on God's green Earth would possess someone to pay that much for a each his own, though!

    xoxo, Kelly
