*Q* is for *Queens* and *Quotes*

Ahhh.the four "Queens", I did not get this hand dealt to me....would be great to have in a game of rummy....we do not really get to choose what is dealt to us, huh? Sometimes I think that would be a great in LA-LA LAnd where all is good everyday ... all day. But, I think that maybe we would not appreciate the "good" without the "bad"....
Look at the Queen in the upper left hand corner of this storybook........she looks so angry about something...did those wee froggies do something to tick her off? She appears to be very rich and beautiful, so whats the problem? Guess money doesn't bring you happiness, all the time huh? The real abundance in our life is health.
But, I try really hard to see the good...even when "bad" things are happening.... and rely on my faith to get me thru..."Where there is Hope There can be Faith. Where there is Faith Miracles can occur" I am praying for a miracle about something that I am not quite ready to share.

and "Treasure The Moment" ......

you can click on the pictures for a closer look!

I just saw this quote this morning...Do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of."- Benjamin Franklin. Good one huh?.....I have this on my coffee mug (Only I drink tea!)...."Worrying does not empty Tomorrow of its empties today of its strength" I like that one, too.......I use quotes alot in my creations....I have since the early nineties, so I have quite a few favorites that I try to rely on when I am going thru a troubling or even a happy time. Remember, "Behind every storm cloud, the sun still shines"!
I put some cuffs in my Fripperies Shoppe...the one above has already sold! Thank You!!!
the style of cuff i pictured in the post will be in a Belle Amoire issue..not sure which one....and the other cuff style in the Fripperie Shoppe was in the current issue of Sew Somerset.

Heart Hugs,

    Have a good day!

  2. I do believe that where there is Faith there are Miracles. It indeed sounds like you are struggling too. We can struggle together and come out in the sunshine with the glow on our face and a laughter in our heart.

  5. Ah dearest "Q", you are in my thoughts and prayers.One nice thing about God, is he is always holding your hand very tight and knows your dreams, desires, needs, and wishes. I am believing all will be lala again, soon.
    beautiful cuff and broach!

  6. I always love to pop in and see what you are up too. I have not been online much lately....We are redecorating our great room and the new granite counter tops come Tuesday so I have been on a tight schedule with the painting. I just had to take a little break this morning and do some visiting. Love all your sweet photos! I will pray for you concerning your miracle...Thank you for stopping by to visit!
