Thankful Thursday April 27, 2017, final golf cart tour of Charleston #6



Give praise to the LORD,
 proclaim his name; 
make known among the nations
 what he has done.
Psalm 105:1



Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hope you have had a good and productive
day or week.

Mine has been good and fairly productive.
Been working on our computer room where
I do all my blogging, and card making.
For some reason I am just over the color
Red,  and I had some red in here, and I
 have gotten rid of all of ittoday......lol  
and have been adding blue in it's place, 
and can't tell you how happy that has
 made me.  Have more to do but have
 gotten a good start and have been de-
cluttering as well.........so I am happy
happy happy..........lol

Today I am showing you the last of the 
golf cart tour of Charleston today,  hope
 you enjoy it.

Well on with my thankfuls.......


I am thankful

#1
that the baby I have written
about several times now with
hip dysplasia actually got her
brace last Friday.  Please if you
feel so led to pray that she adjusts
very quickly and can sleep well.




#2
that we have been working out
in the back side yard again several
times this week.  Looking much 
better all the time, but more to go.
But love watching the progress!






#3
for dinner from Cracker Barrel on 
Monday night. There food is 
always so good.





#4
for a new side item on the menu
 at Cracker Barrel called "Brussel
 Sprout and Kale salad."  
Really good!






#5
for a good laugh over a cute pic
a friend put on facebook...It was
a cute lil chijuajua all dressed up
in a dress, with pearls, sunglasses
a purse, and she was standing up
behind a mini shopping cart.
Hysterical......and it reminds me
 of our lil furry grandaughter
dog Rosie.....probably the reason
I thought it was so funny.
'





#6
a longtime friend gave me a pic of
 my daughter and I that she found
 that was taken when Dee was
 probably 6-7 yrs.old....she gave it
to me a few weeks ago, but came
across it again last night, so it 
reminded me.............




#7
that my daughter in love got a new
 job that is only 6 mins. from their
 home. So it has cut her commute 
time in half I would think, and of
course, boosted her pay.






#8
that my daughter has made the 
decision to have only 2 part time 
jobs now instead of 3........she will
 be working more on one job than 
the other but it is going to be
mostly from home which is nice.
and she loves the ladies she is
working with...............







#9
for another wonderful good news
story about a young man with no
arms, what a victorious spirit
 he has. It will bless your heart.

#10
that our Daughter is also making several
 new friendships that she is thrilled about. 
They are 2 more new girls they have
added to the staff, plus the 2 ladies that
hired her. All of these girls are really 
nice ladies, and we are thrilled for her. 
She is starting to feel more at home 
there now.






#11
for some tiny lil trees that we are growing
 from seeds.........they are about 4" tall now. 
 Love watching them grow daily.









#12
for all that I have gotten done on our
computer room in the last 2 days.
Looking good..........







Well, here is to another week at
 Cozy Place


Thanks for stopping by

Have a Delightful Weekend.

Love, Hugs and last of
April Blessings,

Fun Changes to living room and Easter Egg tree....





















Morning Sweet Friends,

Hope you are having a good
 Tuesday, so far.

Mine hasn't been long since I slept
in till 9, sure feel much better.....as
I didn't get much sleep the night 
before.  Gonna try to work in my
computer room today and do some
much needed clutter busting....lol


Around the end of March we made
 some changes to our Living room,
which we are quite happy with.......
so thought I would show you that
and our Easter tree....so that will be
the last of the Easter things...




#1
 We happily got rid of a very old sofa,
which was actually part of a sectional
we used to have. It had and was....
 deteriorating from the sun that comes in 
the front windows, and that our late
 Molly kitty had unbeknowst to us clawed
 on the right back side, evidently during
 the Winter nights when she stayed in, so
 it had been covered up for quite awhile
 with a white bedspread and quilt.
 As you can see in the above photo.

We got rid of her because.........






#2
I actually happened on this cute lil
 love seat from world market and fell
 in love with it, and it's versatility, and
 the price was good, and got even better
 after they put in on sale.
So told hubby I would love it as a 
birthday present this year.....and the
rest is history and we have been
quite tickled with it.

I am not sure it is gonna stay in this
spot altho I do like it here but my
original intention was to Katy
Corner it......so will see....
 '





#3
I decided to change out our coffee 
table which was my hope chest
Remember..........






#4
Replaced it with the Parson table
 I used to have on the right hand 
corner next to the old sofa....
The table where I used to keep
all the family photos.....





#5
I added 2 lil chairs that were my
 son's when he was little, so now 
lil darling and I can sit here and
do puzzles, writing, tea parties
 or whatever.
This will be a welcome break
for Grammy's knees....lol






These chairs could use some paint, 
 but not sure what color or if I will
 paint them or not,  the contrast is
 kinda nice since we have the dark
 woodwork in this room......
and the knicks and dings add 
some character.....showing they
 were well loved like the skinned
 horse in the Velveteen Rabbit 
story. lol  Plus lil darling will
 only be using them a few more
 years.






The other things we love about this 
love seat is you can put one side down
 and make it a chaise lounge, and if
you put both sides down it becomes
a twin bed.......and it has a slip cover
as well....also all the pillows do too,
but they do need to be dry cleaned.
We don't sit in here a lot so that is
why I wasn't too worried about that,
but I probably would not have pur-
chased it if it was gonna be used
a ton, However, they do have other
 sofa covers you can purchase to
cover the white ones, but none of
them worked for us.
 I love lying here and looking
out the window and up at the
sky and tree. Great View.
Also a great place to sit and read
a book too........haven't done that
yet, but will be........




  1. Here is the view from the
  2. foyer area.

You can see the side here and the
frame, the sides very easily just
 pull up and drop down. 
Hubby and I both love versatile
 pieces like this. This love seat frame
 comes in black and gray wood.  
We got the gray as we thought it 
would look much better in our 
room, but for anyone with black 
and white, the black would 
look awesome.

Just so you know, I get no
compensation in any way for
any info here,  just telling you
about something we really like.





This is on the right side of the
 sofa. Just changed the table top
 accessories is all I did here.





and here is our Easter Tree..........

Had a topiary in it's place before but
once we made the Easter Tree had to
 find a place to put it.....and this was
 the perfect spot it seemed.




The first time I ever saw and Easter 
Tree was 45+ years ago when we
 lived in Germany. So think it is
a German Tradition, but it might
be a European tradition as well.




Believe it or not some of these eggs 
are actually 45+ years old, and came
from Germany. When we get them out
every Easter they are always a wonderful
 remembrance of the time we spent in
Germany when we were so young!  
I was 19 and hubby was 23.....
It was quite an adventure for us.... 


I will be showing you a few more 
changes to this room soon..........


Thanks for visiting with me, and
hope you will come again soon.

Have a really delightful week,

and 
enjoy Spring... as we are half way
to Summer..................

Love, Hugs, and
End of April Blessings,

Nellie

Scripture Sunday





Good Sunday Morning to you......

Hope this finds you well and Happy!


I happened to come across this
 wonderful video this week of a lil
 4 yr. old girl singing, and since we
aren't that far out from Easter, I just 
knew I had to share it with you today.

Hope you will take the time to listen
to it... as I promise you won't be sorry.
