He's still workin' on me to make me what I ought to be.
It took Him just a week to make the moon and stars,
The sun and the earth and Jupiter and Mars.
How loving and patient He must be, He's still workin' on me.

There really ought to be a sign upon my heart,
"Don't judge her yet, there's an unfinished part."
But I'll be perfect just according to His plan
Fashioned by the Master's loving hands.

He's still workin' on me to make me what I ought to be.
It took Him just a week to make the moon and stars,
The sun and the earth and Jupiter and Mars.
How loving and patient He must be, He's still workin' on me.



In the mirror of His Word reflections that I see
Make me wonder why He never gave up on me.
He loves me as I am and helps me when I pray
Remember He's the Potter, I'm the clay.

He's still workin'on me to make me what I ought to be.
It took Him just a week to make the moon and stars,
The sun and the earth and Jupiter and Mars.
How loving and patient He must be, He's still workin' on me.

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Easter.....

WARNING.....A boatload of pics to follow. And I do mean A BOATLOAD! I warned ya.....


The top of my computer armoire...
Love these his and hers bunnies...
I am absolutely obsessed with birds and nests lately. Thanks to my sister who introduced me to them. This is one of my newest. The bird is pewter. Isn't it sweet?
Love love love this bunny! I got it for $3.99 at my fav store-The Christmas Tree Shoppe. I roughed it up a bit and added some stain to give it some character. I love it so much, I got 2!
Again, from my fav store....
Don't ya love the sweet little child's bracelet hanging from her foot? I paid .25 for it at a Thrift Store. It says HOPE on the charm...
I need to be reminded daily. The "nest" that the rock is sitting in is made of shredded song book paper. Another fabulous idea from my sister Melissa from http://thevintageattic.blogspot.com
Nest from....guess.....

My centerpiece for my dining room table...
sweet little birdie from The Dollar Store. Of course it wasn't this cute when I bought it. It was an ugly rusty brown color. I painted it white and roughed it up a bit. It holds a little tea light...
Dining room. Don't ya just love the chocolate bunny? Don't worry. It's fake. I can't eat it. I tried!

Another little nest I created with odds and ends...
I think this is my most favorite new Easter decoration. It reminds me of my 3 sons. Speak no evil. Hear no evil. See no evil.
Cute little Easter shoes I found at Goodwill. Inspired yet again by my sister.
I painted this old ladder that I got many years ago at an auction for $2.00. And I made the sign to remind myself several times each day to relax. It really isn't working for me though...

I am in love with all of the stuff on this side table. All my favorite colors. One of my favorite sayings. And of course, my 3 favorite boys...

There they are. My 3 sons. Aren't they handsome?

Sitting on my coffee table. The tray was given to me by a good friend, Tamera. http://thestonefencecottage.blogspot.com The birdcage/gazebo from a yard sale. The candle bought cheap and decorated up to fit my decor...


Another pewter birdie..


I couldn't get a really good picture of these eggs. The glare is bad. But they are adorable. They look really vintage in person...

Top of my television armoire. My sister helped me do this one. Didn't she do a good job?

I love my sign. It was an ugly countryish shade of red, which I really really don't like the country style of decorating, so I painted it to suit me. Love it!!!!

And I love my birdie too...




On my bedroom door...


Ain't it sweet?


Super ridiculous deal. The candle was .50 and the candle ring was .50. I bought 3!


I fell in love with this bell when I saw it. I just had to have it. It sits on my kitchen counter now. My 5 year old likes for me to ring it when their meal is ready. Isn't he silly?

Easter eggs waiting to be decoupaged. Love this! It's really a message in a bottle. It has one of my favorite quotes...Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the number of moments that take our breath away! (tears)
Oh, and the little rose my sister made from used coffee filters.


A bottle I made...On top of the armoire in my bedroom...

I love silver!

Thrift store finds...

Mercury glass type candle holder. It looks waaaay better in person...

On my nightstand. I love it! Another thrift store find...


My bathroom shelf. You can see the green and brown polka dot shower curtain in the mirror that I just found for $10.00

That's my new shower curtain. Ezra my 2 year old loves it!


Curtain rings from the thrift store...




Wow! That was a ton of pictures. I hope you enjoyed them. And I hope I didn't bore you. I have had so much fun decorating this last week or so. Now if I could just keep my house clean enough to just enjoy it.....
