2013 - A YEAR IN REVIEW................WELCOME, 2014....HAPPY NEW YEAR!

                                                              A year in review.........2013
                "Sweetie" aka "Sweet Sue" the Vintage Canned Ham...........dressed up for the Holiday

                                                              Pretty in Christmas Pink-2013

                                 SOLD our Farmhouse early this year................

                                                 Living here temporarily....................

                                                First "Over the Moon" Vintage Market Show

                   Bought this darling 10ft. Vintage Canned Ham and named her Sweetie

                           Had to say good-bye to my precious Ms. are missed little girl

                         Bought and renovating this yellow, cedar shake cottage..........

2013 has been a very busy year for me and my family.........I look back and it feels almost unreal.....changes taking place so quickly.  I knew change needed to come but when?  God took us by the hand and said......listen to my voice and follow me.......JEREMIAH 29:11-13  For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.  Then shall ye call upon me, and I will hearken unto you.  And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

I pray blessings for you and your family for 2014.  I pray that the joy of the Lord is your strength.  I pray for divine healing and protection for you and your family.....but mostly I pray that you know and have a personal relationship with our Heavenly Father......  2014...a new beginning.....Happy New Year!      Roxie

    It sounds like 2013 was good to you. I look forward to seeing the renovations on the yellow cottage. I loved seeing all the snow at your houses. This year we will hopefully move into our final home. I know God will lead us to it, and all will be OK. Thank you for your friendship. You are a dear blog friend to me. I wish you peace, joy, and love in the new year.

  14. What a sweet blog~ enjoyed my visit!

  15. Oh I love the pretty, pink camper! I've been looking for one. My husband thinks it's ridiculous! I spotted one on a desolate piece of land. A house sits a few acres away. I wanted to stop. He said, "No way! What do you want with that old thing." I could imagine a paint job, new flooring, curtains and fluff! Oh, well a girl can dream! Love what you do! Love your blog! Thanks for stopping by today!


  16. Happy New Year Roxie!!! :) I am so happy to see so many amazing things have happened to you this year sweetie. Your cottage looks so snuggly. I know it will be perfect for you & hubby. All your plans sound fantastic honey. Blessings to you & your loved ones Roxie. Xoxo
