If you visit me often, you know that I say “God is good” a lot. I say it because it’s true. I try to say it even more when things are not going well. We will all experience sickness and heartbreak right along with health and joy. The important thing to always remember is that God is truly good through it all. He will never turn his back on us. If He seems to be distant, it is because we stepped away from Him.
So, let us all be thankful on this holiday weekend. We have freedom…God is good…God bless America…my Blue Creek Home!
We are blessed with good neighbors. ‘Trapper’ Bob is as good a man as they come.
I made this pillow for his birthday/Fourth of July gift.
He is one of the reasons we continue to enjoy our freedom.
A marine through and through.
I took all of these photographs in the bedroom on the third floor.
The twin beds are wearing their summer quilts.
My sweet mother made this beautiful pillow.
I must get my love of pillows from her.
The ticking and the lace are vintage pieces.
The little center is a thin strip from Bob’s pillow.
We have the best view of the lake from up there.
From the rear, our house has three stories.
This is looking out to the left.
Looking at the roofline on the left, you can see how high up we are!
I zoomed in when I saw this boat and skier coming.
This is looking straight ahead. The house below us is gorgeous.
I was thrilled when I saw this sailboat!!
On windy days there can be a dozen sailboats on the water.
They are so beautiful to watch.
I love the blue and white sail.
The foyer got in on the patriotic wear.
I just got these vintage Avon cologne bottles.
Capitol building - Betsy Ross - Uncle Sam Pipe
I love this old blue light bulb.
Close up of the capitol.
I made some mini pillows to pile in this vintage planter.
Check out those feet!
Sister #4 gave me two of these hearts. They are hand made from brown paper bags!
This one is hanging on my favorite lamp.
This is his print of George Washington.
It has some damage at the bottom, but hey…it’s old!
(the reflection on the glass is a bit eerie!)
Pink Saturday is going to be fun since Beverly said we could use red, white, and blue this week!!!

Please have a safe Fourth of July!!!!!
