Thankful Thursday April 2, 2020, Spring table from the past

 Light shines on the righteous and joy 
on the upright in heart. 
 Rejoice in the LORD, 
you who are
 righteous, and praise his holy name.
Psalm 97:11-12 NIV

Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hope this finds you and yours doing well
and in good spirits.

Sorry I am so late, for some reason today
did not seem like Friday, and we were
working outside and it just dawned on
me a few hours ago that I hadn't finished
 my Thankful Thursday Post.  So here
I am doing it

Pictures today are from a Spring 
Table from the past...............I think it 
was a Birthday table for my 
Sister-in-law Susan.

Well, on with my Thankfuls....

Thankful that the idea came t
last Friday for us to get our Card
 business open now, (even tho we 
still have some things to do), so that 
this can be a help to others during this
 time of isolation where we can't get
 out as we would like. Have been 
praying and asking what can we do
 to help, (since we are high risk age)
 and think this was God's answer to us.
A way to spread some cheer and
So we are not only opening we are
making 5 cards available to each 
person for FREE for the month
 of April.

Thankful that hubby and I could
 put just a few finishing touches
 on our card shop so that it is
fully useable right now,  and we
can add the other things that we
desire to put on there as we go,
which will be normal anyway,
as I will continually be putting
new cards on.

Thankful that my hubby had the
skills to make our website and
has done a beautiful job on it.

Thankful for a nice time with
my family celebrating my 68th
birthday on Sunday with a nice
dinner they made for me.
That number shocks me cause
in my mind I don't feel that age,
sometimes my body does tho,
lol, my mind wants to go and
do many things that my body
just can't keep up with.  lol
Not complaining, just saying,
it is what it is....but think the
Lord helps me do pretty 
well considering.

Thankful for all the sweet
cards and gifts and singing phone
calls and face book messages I
received for my birthday and
and didn't even realize until I was
 typing this, that our Shop Opening
was also a birthday present.
Probably because it is like a pinch
me moment -  it has taken so long
and so many set backs and ups
and downs.

Thankful that we had had a
sleepover with lil darling and
had her all day on Monday.
As Mommy is working all
week since they are taking
turns in the office.  So this
is her week.

Thankful that we opened our
Greeting Card Shop on Monday
night and hoping and praying it
 will be helpful to many people.
In case you would like to check
us out...Please go to

Thankful for rain last night.
We just started praying for it
yesterday hoping it might in
some way help get rid of this
virus....but know it will get
rid of pollen which is causing
 many people allergies which
also makes you sneeze and
cough and touch your face
So rain is a good thing right
now for sure.

Thankful for a few nice cool
mornings again and being able
to work outside and sit out on
the porch.

Thankful that everyone we know
and love is safe and having no
 problems from this virus.

Thankful for a sweet surprise
Easter card in the mail from a
sweet lady at our church, and she
had included 2 pretty lil crosses
she for me and one
for lil darling.

Thankful always for God's word
and how it keeps us grounded in
the truth, which keeps us peaceful
at times like this.

Well, that's it for Cozy Place this
week.  This was the birthday and
Card Shop edition.  lol

Thanks for stopping in'

 Stay Safe
 keep Your Light shining

Love Hugs, Prayers and

Easter Table from the past and Special Announcement

Hello Sweet Friends,

Hope this finds you healthy and doing
 well and weathering these storms of life.

We are doing well with all of those, thank-
fully. We have been busy busy since last
 week.  Working on something, and 
celebrating my 68th birthday and we had
 lil darling with us all day on Monday and 
we always enjoy the time we get with her.

I have an announcement to make that has 
been in the works for over 15 years, and
 it's what has kept us so busy busy since
 last week, and I can't hardly believe the 
time has finally arrived,

*** Due to the Corona virus.... 
We are thankful that the idea came
 to us to open our Greeting Card business now,
 (even tho we still have some things to do), it is
functional and we are hoping it will be a help to
others during this time of isolation where we can't 
get out as we would like. We have been praying and 
asking what can we do to help, (since we are in the 
 high risk category) and we truly feel this was God's
answer to us. A way to spread some cheer and
 encouragement, without leaving your home.
So we are not only Opening our shop,  we are 
making 5 cards available to each person
 for FREE for the month of April. 

So Please come check us out at

and come get your free Downloadable,
 Printable cards to warm the heart!
We have an assortment of Greeting cards
 for all Occasions and Holidays.

We would be thrilled if we can help
in this way!

We also have FREE printables
to enhance your decorating!

So on with our Easter Table
from the past.....

Just a simple centerpiece, with placemats,
bunny dish, nests and eggs...

Always love this fresh green and peach
in the Spring is just so lovely
and screams Spring to me.

Had some Easter towels and used
  them as place mats along with 
white corelleware.

Nice overview

Just made the birds nests out of gift bag
stuffing...and then added the eggs.

Then made these nest from the rice krispie
treat recipe,  but used chow mein noodles instead
of rice krispies and threw in some baby snacks, 
Gerbers yogurt puffs and cereal snacks.....
 thats where the color and lil flowers came in.

I made these for lil darling,
and yes, they were good......

I put peanut Easter M and M's in the
adult nests, that were made the same
as lil darlings,  and don't they look
so cute and festive.  You could also
put any type of candy eggs in them.

With Posterized Affect

Well, that's it for today, folks.....

Thank you for coming by to visit

Always happy to have you here.

Love, Hugs, and 
last day of March Blessings,
