Thanks for the gift.........

I saw my brother this week, and he gave me this photo........It is me and my older sister. He has been given the task of going through all of mothers pictures, and believe me there are 1000's. I had to smile when I saw this picture though, I had not seen it in years. If it were clearer you would see the beautiful detail in the handmade dresses we are wearing that match. I remember mother saying that she too had a dress like it that she made to match us. Of course, she was never in the pictures always taking them. As I sat this week sewing and making drapes for Adam's new house I thought about what a gift my mother had given me in teaching me how to sew. It has done many things for me in my life. It has made an income for me for sometime, I was especially popular when Adam played football, because I sewed all the patches on the letter jackets, I've altered many a girlfriends or neighbors dresses, and I have done many darling nursery's for clients and friends. I owe a lot to my mom for teaching me this talent. Thank you mother and to you goes all the glory. I just want to say to all of my friends who still have your mama, give her a big hug for me and think about how much they mean to you while they are still here. Happy Holidays, Lauri

Lakewood Show

I had a great show at Lakewood this weekend. It was so good to see everyone and get out. And I actually had a lot of sales. I couldn't believe it lots of people were out and buying. I sold a lot of Christmas and several necklaces. I was so excited, people are still interested in the Junk Necklaces. And a big ole thanks to my sweet friend Kim for coming to see me and not freaking out, cause I cried. And to Miss Sassy Trash for giving me a big hug. There are so many wonderful folks in the junk business you just got to know this is a great place to be........And thanks to all of my regulars who all came out and bought something. (I don't know if they really wanted the stuff or they just thought I needed the boost.) Anyway it went a long way toward my therapy. I love you all, Lauri

Merry Christmas everybody!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you Debbie for thinking of me and for your sweet friendship, I love you more that words can say.......Here's the link to the blog you will love it.......... and here' s the sweetest poem I have ever read..........lauri

I'm Spending Christmas With Jesus This Year

I see the countless Christmas trees
Around the world below;
With the tiny lights, like Heaven's stars
Reflecting on the snow.

The sight is so spectacular,
Please wipe away that tear;
Because I'm spending Christmas
With Jesus Christ this year.

I hear the many Christmas songs
That people hold so dear;
But the sounds of any music can't compare
With the Christmas choir up here.

I have no words to tell you
The joy their voices bring;
It is beyond description
To hear the angels sing.

I know how much you miss me,
I see the pain inside your heart;
But it's only for a while
That we will be apart.

I'll ask Him to light your spirit
As I tell Him of your love;
So please pray for one another
As you lift eyes above.
I can't tell you of the splendor
Or the peace here in this place.
Can you imagine Christmas
With our Saviour...face to face?

Please let your hearts be joyful
And let your spirit sing;
I'm spending Christmas in Heaven
And I am walking with the King.

Lakewood 400 and a new look......

Hey ya'll, as part of my therapy they said, 'get out and do stuff'......So somehow I got out of my pajamas and decided to do Lakewood this weekend. If you can come to see me I would love it but, be prepared I'm still crying......I am just trying to get through this the best I can. But, I would love to see everyone and I have lots of stuff.
On another note, my blog is going through a big change. It is all about me now. So if you are wanting to leave a comment for Lulu please do so at Thanks, Lauri
