A Time For Gratitude


    Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who celebrates this holiday.  I think it is always good to give thanks. It is not a holiday in my homeland, Jamaica, but I take time out to give thanks for my relatives and friends, the wonderful persons I have met online, the strides I have made in my writing and blogging this year, the strength and courage I have had in facing health challenges and the departed loved ones who have left me with with special memories.  In that mode I share one of my favourite quotations- "Gratitude is the best attitude."
                


   What are you most thankful for this year?  How are you celebrating Thanksgiving 2013?

Favourite Animal Figurines - Creative Monday Blog Hop

   My twin and I loved buying figurines and found it difficult to pass many when we were out Christmas shopping. Of course it is no secret that we have a huge bird figurine collection. With the holiday season fast approaching I need to muster the energy to take all the birds out of my display unit and rearrange them. If I do get to do that I will be sure to post it here.  In the meantime I will share some  favourite animal figurines that we have used to decorate our home over the years.

Blogger Networking

    

   I have read about bloggers attending blogger conferences and sharing the wonderful time they have had meeting other bloggers, learning more about blogging etc. I am yet to have such an experience.  In the meantime I have been learning a lot about freelance writing and blogging by attending webinars. This is quite new to me. I am glad that I now have an internet service that can give me such an opportunity. I like the idea that one can join in and share views and ask the hosts questions. Some of the more recent webinars that I have joined were those given by Jon Morrow, Sophie Lizard, Laura Leigh Clarke, Carol Tice and Sharon Baker. I found them to be informative and inspirational.




  Have you ever attended a conference for bloggers or a webinar?  If so, what was the experience like?

Let The Colours Glow! - Creative Monday Blog Hop

Decorative Candle Holder
        I have so many candle holders in my home but I find it difficult to use some of them. This is the latest one and it has a beautiful pink candle inside. I just love the colours and the fact that it is shaped like a vase.  I may light it some day but for now I will just use it to decorate a table in our living-room and as my headline states 'Let The Colours Glow!" The crochet doily brings back memories of the times when my twin and I would sit in our living-room and crochet a variety of items for several hours. Janine and I made this one.  We loved crocheting in gold.

Please Bloom Again!

    I was determined to get new flowers in my garden this year and was happy that I succeeded with some of them. I especially liked this beautiful bloom which stayed around for several days despite the drought that we experienced.  Now I wait with baited breath to see it bloom again.  As I look at this picture my imagination is running wild. It reminds me of fireworks. I wish I knew the name of this flower. I continue to do my research.


  Do you know the name of this flower? Did you plant new flowers in your garden this year?

How Cool Is That?! - Creative Monday Blog Hop


      I have always admired the awesome creations from my namesake Judy who has a blog titled Judy's Handmade Creations  so I was thrilled to be the lucky winner of her angel cards and bracelets giveaway. When they arrived in time for my birthday, November 4, I had to exclaim "How cool is that?!"
       Whenever I see the figure of an angel it has a comforting effect on me and what better day to use these  items to decorate a small table but on my birthday. The decorations included a pretty cloth,  picture of my twin and me, the angel cards and bracelets that I won, a special necklace with an angel pendant and a small red candle in a flower candle holder. I lit the candle for a short while. Below are pictures of the items I won and the decorated table.

Rainbow Birthday Thoughts - Creative Monday Blog Hop

     November 4 marks another birthday for me and again as a twinless twin.  I use the day to reflect and remember good times as I know that my twin sister Janine would want me to be happy. It is not easy but I thank God that I can celebrate with my family. 
    Things keep happening to lift my spirit when I face the difficult months of each year.  Recently I saw an awesome rainbow. I had not seen one in many years. It was so huge that I stood in awe. I got some shots but my camera was not able to do it justice.  Amazingly as my family and I stood looking at it my mom recited this verse from a hymn that she used to sing in high school over 76 years ago:
                                    "O Joy that seekest me through pain,
                                     I cannot close my heart to thee;
                                     I trace the rainbow through the rain,
                                    And feel the promise is not vain,
                                    That morn shall tearless be."
   I hope I get to see a rainbow soon again. In the meantime I will treasure these shots and be comforted by the wonderful words of the hymn.
