Crafty Afternoon

It's been raining cats & dogs
here in South Texas

We're not complaining
we need the rain

but since I'm stuck inside
I've been doing a little crafting

I started with an empty pickle jar
and ended with a lovely Vintage container

I added the bible verse from my blog
on the back on this Vintage Container
From the fullness of His grace we have all received
one blessing after another......John 1:16

Some vintage sheet music
and a little key hole and key
bring some charm to this empty jar

I added another label to the back
to complete the look

Ok, sweet daughter of mine
I promised I'd make you a vintage jar
So which one of these
 tickles your fancy???????

Let me know because the other one
is going to my sweet friend, Carol!!

Carol and I have a vintage friendship!!
We talked on the phone last night
and caught up on each other's lives.
She mentioned how much she loves
reading my blog!
She and her hubby are going 
to visit us next month
and I'll have this small gift
waiting for her to say
Thank you for your friendship
over the many years!!

From the fullness of His Grace we have received
one blessing after another

These two beautiful ladies have been a blessing to my life
and I thank the Lord for both of them

Every Little Birdie says-

Vintage friends are the best kind!!!!
