PROVERBS 3:5-6

Trust in the LORD with all your HEART. Lean not unto your own understanding, but acknowledge him in all thy ways and he will direct your path.

~~~ANTIQUE VINTAGE CHINA POTTING STICKS in the GARDEN~~~



I have made these pretty VINTAGE POTTING STICKS for years. They are too SWEET and perfect gifts or your own garden. All you need is old spools (small, med. or large) and find a PRETTY piece of china~~tea cups, saucer, sugar, creamer or anything that you like and glue (waterproof) and put in your FLOWER POTS or GARDEN! Use larger antique spindles or thin furniture legs if putting directly in the mist of tall flowers...the potting stick will show better





Also, thought I would show you these PRECIOUS, VINTAGE SHOO-FLY FOOD COVERS. (Sorry, not a very good picture). I found 3 of them...TEAL, SOFT BLUE-GREEN and PINK! I LOVE THEM..$3.00 for all!


Hope you enjoyed the ideas! From one sweetie to another~~~Roxie

    Haven't been around much as I'm TRYING to let my hands and arms rest. See the doctor on Tuesday and I'm hoping I just have inflamed tendons...

    PSALM 23

    THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD,
    That's Relationship!

    I shall not want,
    This supply is!

    MAKE ME WALK IN GREEN PASTURES,
    This is rest!

    He leadeth me beside the still waters,
    This is refreshing!

    He restores my soul,
    This is healing!

    GUIDE ME FOR THE PATHS OF JUSTICE,
    That's Guidance!

    FOR THE LOVE OF YOUR NAME,
    This is on purpose!

    THOUGH I WALK THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH,
    That's Testing!

    I will fear no evil,
    That's Protection!

    Thou art with me,
    That is fidelity!

    YOUR STICK AND YOUR staff they comfort me,
    This is discipline!

    Prepare a table before ME IN THE PRESENCE OF MY ENEMIES,
    This is hope!

    UNGE MY HEAD WITH OIL
    That's Consecration!

    And my cup runneth over,
    That's Abundance!

    SURELY GOODNESS AND MERCY A follow me EVERY DAY OF MY LIFE,
    This is a blessing!

    AND I WILL DWELL IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD
    That's Security!

    FOR LONG DAYS,
    This is eternity!


    May the Lord bless you and keep you!


    In Christ,

  5. Good Morning Roxie, Your potting sticks are adorable. I've never seen these anywhere before. I hope you don't mind if I use this idea. Well, I looked at your little trailer, it was so cute and in very good condition. What I liked most about that post was halleluiah, the Lord is good. I did not know about the big "C" but I am over-joyed with your good news. Have a marvelous day and enjoy each blessing that surrounds you, Connie :)

  11. Hi Roxie, I can't get enough of these potting sticks . . . I just think they are the cutest things I've seen in such a long time. Thank you for stopping in and your encouraging words on my new blogging venture. I don't think it will gather many followers, but if it helps a few people find some good songs . . .it's worth it. It is hard for beginners to find good music, and if you don't have something new to learn it soon gets boring and the fun runs out. I just love it when you visit, you always seem to bring a little sunshine wherever you go. Have a wonderful week. Connie :)

  12. Hi Roxie! I absolutely love these potting sticks! They're just adorable. I wonder what else you could use to make them. I'd love to try making these. Thanx for the inspiration dear.

  13. Roxie, Thanks so much for following my little guitar playing blog. I hope that this does stir-up the interest that your husband had to learn guitar. It is so much fun and it's the instrument that is portable enough to play on the front porch and carry on camping trips. I have only been playing for about three years and I wish that I had started earlier. I taught myself and now I play with two little groups and we gave so much fun. Thank you for visiting, for following and for your wonderful words of encouragement. Connie :)

  15. lOVE THEM! They are right up our alley Roxie....which glue do you use? We've used some that pops right off after a bit, so we'd love to know what you have luck with!
    (love those shoo-fly covers...but now they've got me thinking of shoo-fly pie, which I haven't had in ages.....now I think I'll go find the recipe ~ lol!!)

    1. The best I've used is GORILLA GLUE-be careful tho because it expands...also a tacky glue or super glue. Use something that water will not effect. From one sweetie to another~~~Roxie
