Miscellany Monday

Yipee! it's Monday and I'm always excited about sharing my random thoughts.  Thanks Carissa for being our hostess each Monday!  We love ya!

Love a sale.........
I love a SALE and especially when it comes to buying for my Princess.  There's a shop appropriately called "Spoiled Rotten" and they had their big summer sale a couple of weeks ago. Everything in the store was 50% off. ~yea!~  I could not resist these precious dresses.  I love, love the vintage look of them and can I just say that Hanna Beth wears them well!

Pill pouches...........
You know I love things to be organized. ~chuckle~  Well, whoever came up with these little Pill Pouches had people like me in mind.  I found these about 3 years ago hanging with the pill boxes and such in the pharmacy department of Wal-Mart.   They are perfect to put in your purse or a man's pocket.  I use when we travel to carry my daily dose of vitamins, drop all the little pouches down into a larger ziploc and eurecka, I've  got each day's done! And, if you take any medication and need to take it with you and don't want to carry the whole bottle, these are great!  Hey, they aren't even paying me to tell you gals about these.  I just knew that you would want to know if you didn't already.  Thank you very much!
And, added bonus, you can reuse each bag many times.  I'm probably still on my first package of 50 bags 3 years later.

Scripture cards..........
Okay, this is something else you young Moms and you Grandmoms want to know about, if you don't already.  A sweet young friend of mine sent me these  Alphabet Scripture Cards for my birthday.  They are the cutest and such a neat, neat way to teach younger children scripture verses.  They are about 4 X6 and come with a cute wooden easel, all wrapped and tied beautifully in a kraft box.  And, it's neat to find a spot that you can sit it and leave one of the cards sitting out all the time.  It serves as inspiration when my Grans aren't here.  They can be found at lil light o' mine  and they make a great gift too!

Sweet cousins.........  

  Oh, how I wish these sweet cousins were able to spend more time together.  They have so much fun together but with 13 hours separating them, it's difficult to make it happen very often.  The above photo was taken while they were watching the goldfish in the atrium of The Gaylord during my big birthday celebration. There is only 1 year and 5 days difference in their age. Clancy will soon be 4 and Hanna Beth will soon be 3.  Can I just say - precious!

Outside my window.........

   For the past several years I have used a couple of angels as accents in the flower beds around our patio.  It was not intentional but rather I just saw one and thought it would look sweet and then saw another and so it went.  Well, the one pictured above was on One Kings Lane  about a month ago for a really good price and I just had to have it.  She/he is made of a weather resistant  resin and I had the perfect spot for her/him.  She/he arrived and I placed her in the flower bed outside our bedroom window.  I love raising the shade each morning and seeing her/his sweet face (and chubby rolls).   I know, it's silly, but hey, there are things a whole lot sillier.  And, I am 60 years old and I can do silly things if I want to. ~big laugh~ 

And, I leave you with this.........

    the Scripture cards look awesome. what a great idea, especially for gifts, too!!

    i'm glad Clancy and Hanna Beth are so close in age. i bet they will be close, despite the distance.

    i love that verse in Hebrews. such a good reminder and life-giving Word.

    have a blessed week! xoxo.

  3. Good morning! It seems like sometimes the more you post, the more I discover we have in common. I love the dresses, they are adorable...nothing like a good sale. And the pill bags? Love them. I am definitely going to be picking up some of them. The little cousins are soo sweet. I loved that some of my grands are just the best of friends, and hope that the New Mexico one gets attached to, in spite of his long distance away. And finally, one of my favorite verses! Have a wonderful day....HUGS

  4. I enjoy reading your Miscellany Monday posts. Those dresses are too cute! I can't wait until my niece's baby Kenzie can wear dresses like these. Love those Scripture cards. I have been working on memorizing Scripture. It was easier when I was younger but I'm still determined to store up His Word in my heart and mind. It helps me throughout my day.

    Blessings and love,

  5. I love the dresses! I have a hard time finding clothes for my granddaughter because she is sooo tall.

    I'm going to look up those cards now!

    Love the angels to btw!

  6. I have several little angels who would look adorable in those dresses! Too cute! I also really enjoyed reading about your hubby's birthday trip for you... tell him he won lots of points from your blogging friends on this one! Happy belated Birthday... You're a great example of 60!!

  7. Those dresses are adorable! I like the idea of the scripture cards. I will have to check them out. Have a blessed week.

  8. Those little dresses are just too sweet for words. And I love, love, love the idea of pill bags ... I'm definitely going to get some for our upcoming trip (DH takes a lot of medicine, and the full bottles take up too much room in our luggage ... these will fit in just about anywhere!).

  9. fun post!! love love those dresses...and good for you for the price you got...must make you love them even more!!

  10. Hi Lea,
    I have loved looking around your blog and I loved this post. The little dresses you bought for your sweet Hannah Beth are darling!

    I am so glad you came by and left me your sweet note and told me about your being familiar with Angelman Syndrome. Thank you so much for your visit.

  11. nice post thanks for sharing...i found your blog thrue the hodgepodge...looking for to visit more...blessings from holland...

  12. Love the quote. Those dresses are adorable. Enjoyed your pictures and your little angel is so sweet.
    I use to buy those bags at a Flea Market in Florida but I don't like going to them. So one day my niece said on FB that she was going to the Flea Market so I asked her to get me a package which I picked up when I was in Florida. I didn't know Walmart had them. I love them for pills for travel also for some mints when I'm using a small purse.


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
