Inspired Sunday

This week's church is in the beautiful
historic town of Defiance, Missouri
I had the pleasure of visiting there
last weekend.
Defiance is where Daniel Boone made
his homestead in Missouri and where
he and his son built a stone house.
You can take tours of the house and
grounds.  I would recommend it if you
are ever in the area.
Be sure to visit Inspired Sunday
for more beautiful churches!
"Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!" - Psalm 27:14
Have a beautiful day!

Pastel Granny Square Afghan

Hello friends!
Here is the fun afghan that I finished last week!
It's basic granny squares done in mostly pastel colors.

I decided on a simple border.
These colors are so happy together!
A close up of the border.
(I am not as good a photographer
as I am crocheter:)  It is tricky for me trying to
get a whole afghan in a picture (and not be blurry)!
I am considering selling this afghan.
If anyone is interested just leave me a comment and I'll
get with you!  I have always thought that it
 would be perfect for a little girl's bed.
I'd like to thank all our followers.
We truely appreciate all of you!
We are sad that it is going away.
I hate to lose any of you!
We've added bloglovin' and Linky
for you to follow us now.

And the effect of righteousness, quietness and
assurance forever.  - Isaiah 32:17

Barn Charm

This week's barn comes to you
from Lawerence County, Missouri.
It was taken this year before the trees bloomed.
They are all full and green now.
Everything is so lush and green now it's
hard to imagine how bad last summer's
drought was.  It was painful looking at
all those dead, dry fields.
Be sure to visit Barn Charm for other
great barns!

A very present help in trouble" - Psalm 46:1
Have a nice day!

Hello everyone!
It's been awhile since I posted.
Lindsey has been very sick, but is starting
to feel much better now.
I am happy to join Inspired Sunday again this week.
Be sure to check out the other beautiful churches
featured there!

With it's unusual shape and interesting steeple, I
couldn't help but stop and snap a picture of
this beautiful church. 
It is located in northern Missouri.

Crochet - My Happy Craft!

Hello friends!
I wanted to show you how the
granny squares I've been working on are
coming along!
It certainly would make a beautiful baby
blanket or for a toddler bed.
I am so loving the colors and the 'sampler'
feel to it.  I am joining as I go, I really like that
method!  A couple more rows and a border,
then I'll show you the completed blanket!

Crochet is my Happy Craft.
It's how I've been choosing to spend my
creative time lately.  Fun color play and
yarn running through my fingers, oh, how
I love yarn! 
My stack of afghans is a visual expression of my joy!

"Create in me a clean heart, O God;
and renew a right spirit within me."

Barn Charm

I have one more barn from Missouri Town 1855
to show you.  I loved this unusual barn!
We were lucky the day we were there to see
the newborn lambs.  They were so sweet.
This is another old house that was rebuilt on this site.
I started to crop this picture but then noticed how
awesome the shade of the tree was so decided to
leave it in:)
Thanks so much for coming along with me to this
truely unique park.  I've enjoyed sharing it with you!
Please visit Barn Charm for more great barns!

shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty." - Psalm 91:1

Vintage Irmi Nursery Lamp

Hello friends!
Last weekend I found an adorable new Irmi to add to my collection! 
A pastel colored barn scene with a boy and girl. I love this one. Irmi also known as Nursery Originals or Nursery Plastics. Irmi made these beautiful lamps and other nursery items in a wide range of colors but the pastel ones always pull a little bit more at my heart strings.
I love the hand painted details on these sweet wooden pieces.

This lamp has a little fabric piece where the door to the barn should be.
 It has a little light socket there so that the lamp doubles as a night light.

 Wishing you a lovely day, Lindsey

Victorian House

Hello lovely ladies!
I was looking through pictures that I have
taken on some of my travels around Missouri.
I thought you might enjoy seeing this very ornate
Victorian home in Plattsburg.  It was built in the 1890's
and has a walnut spiral staircase that leads to the cupola.
This is just one of the many quaint Victorians in this
historic town.  They also have 7 churches that are over
100 years old! 
Sure would be awesome to live in a house like this!
"I can do all things through Christ who
strengthens me." - Philippians 4:13
Have a wonderful day!

Barn Charm

This week I'm showing another barn from
Missouri Town 1855.  A park that features old
buildings and the way of life in the 1800's. 
I love that they have animals in the 'town'.
There are workers there all the time, but to experience
it to the fullest with demonstrations and lots of
interaction, check the events calendar.  The day
we were there was pretty much a self guided tour.

There are many such log homes.
A real treat if you love history and the
way of life in times long past.
Be sure to visit Bluff Area Daily for
more Barn Charm!

Let us rejoice and be glad in it." - Psalm 118:24
