OMG--you are sooo talented! I loved all of the wonderful creations you featured on this post!

Judging from the very snowy photos on a recent post--you just MIGHT need my Little Pink Fairy to fly over to Ohio and help you shovel! :)

Hope you are having a great Pink Sat!! Dana

The Urban Chic said...

Mary, what beautiful things you made. I love the chenille chair. I was told at Goodwill that they threw one away because it was torn---I told them, please don't do that again, I will buy it. They are hard to find here. I have an old ironing board/chair/ladder that I want to recover for my pink bedroom, but haven't found what I want yet. I think there is some pink stripped ticking in mom's material,so might have to check.
Love and Hugs, Pat

Hello, I couldn't help but notice that you lost your beloved daughter. I just wanted to share with you the thaught in John 5:28,29 that in part says "Do not marvel because the hour will come that all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out to a resurection" You see the Bible teaches that the time will come when Jehovah God will clean the earth and as Psalms 37:29 says "all the righteious will possess the earth and they will reside forever upon it" the rightous will live on earth and those that have died as John said will come out to a resurection. But notice where they come from. Not from heaven or hell. they come from the memorial tombs. So when a loved one dies, they are as if they where asleep, waiting to be resurected on a beautiful paradise earth. When we die, we go to the tomb (Ecclesiastes 9:5,6,10) Notice that when Adam sined God told him in Genesis 3:19 "for dust you are and to DUST you will rerutn". Yes, when we die we just go back to the dust we once where. But in due time there will be a wonderful resurection on a paradise earth where you WILL be able to see you beloved daughter. Would you like to be there to greet her?
