Scripture Sunday

Happy Sunday Morning
 Sweet Friends,

Here is the scriptures for today!!

 There are six things the LORD hates,

 seven that are detestable to him: 

 haughty eyes, a lying tongue, 
hands that shed innocent blood, 
 a heart that devises wicked schemes,
 feet that are quick to rush into evil, 

 a false witness who pours out lies 
and a person who stirs up conflict
 in the community.

Proverbs 6:16-19 NIV

Have a restful and contemplative

Thankful Thursday July 18, 2019, Coastal living room scenes

Now to the King eternal, immortal, 
invisible, the only God, be honor
 and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
1 Timothy 1:17 NIV

Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hope you have been having a good 
week....ours has been pretty good.
  My foot is somewhat better, still on
 the mend and kind of off again, on
 again type of thing, so praying it
 will be gone all together soon.

Pictures today are from our re--
freshed living room.  Decided to do
it with a Coastal flair this summer,
but just haven't had time to take 
and edit pictures,  so will show
you the ones I have taken.

Thankful for another Memorial Service
that we attended for a sweet lady who
attends our church.  It was just the
sweetest service.  All 3 of her grand-
sons spoke, and it was just so sweet
and precious all the things they had
to say about their Memaw.  Really a 
great reminder about the importance
of being an involved Grandparent
and the great influence we can have
if we choose to....

Thankful for lunch out with hubby
afterward at Perkins.  We have not
been there in quite awhile because
they had changed their menu and
there wasn't a lot on there we liked
anymore.....but we saw that they
have changed it again and saw
they brought back some of our
old favorites.  

Thankful as always for a nice 
long chat with our girl.  

Thankful for Sweet Potato Puffs,
made by Alexia.  They are in the
frozen food department with the
frozen fries and tots.  They are
really delicious....and I could
easily eat these as a dessert
especially if you dipped them
in a lil honey.  lol

Thankful for being surprised
by my nephew and 2 of his girls.
They wound up coming to church
yesterday but they weren't suppose
to be that was quite a
nice surprise. Just in case you
didn't know they just moved back
here from Mo. and we hadn't
seen them yet.

Thankful that my nephew and
the whole family came over for
pizza and salad on Sunday even-
ing. It was so great to see them
all and get to spend some time
with them.  We really had a lot
of fun.  They have 3 sweet and
beautiful girls, 2 (twins) that are
12 yrs. old and one that is 15, 
and of course, the move is very
 sad for them as they have lived
 in the same place for their whole
 lives, so it was good to have fun
with them and see them smiling
when they left.

Thankful for the frozen fruit
we have been buying at the
grocery store and making
smoothies with....they are
delicious and have that same
consistency that they have
when you buy them, and they

make for a quick, refreshing
and delicious treat

Thankful for a beautiful pinterest
 board that came in my email box 
that had all my fav shades of blue
in the robins egg blue family.
Just made my day it was so pretty.

Thankful that our contractor
finally showed up to work on
our shed.  It has been 8 weeks,
 so we were beginning to wonder.
He has been having a lot of prob-
lems, some family, some physical, 
and of course, we are in a rainy 
season here as well. Just glad to
 know he still plans to finish, and 
it is a lil bit further along, but
still have a ways to go, but some
progress at least.

Thankful for the dealership where
we take our Van to be serviced,
 and the honesty of the people who 
work there. While they were rotat-
ing our tires they found a nail in 
one of our tires and fixed it....
and it was at no charge to us as
we bought our tires from them,
but I realize they did not have to
tell us there was a nail in the tire
or fix it, cause we were having
no problems....but sadly, there are
 some places that would have just
rotated the tires and said nothing
since it was gonna take their
time and make no money on the cuddos to Winter Park
Toyota Service Department.

With colored pencil affect

Thankful for a fun time after
getting the car serviced.  We
went to Christmas Tree store,
which was fun since we haven't
been there in a long time. Then
to Home Goods and to dinner 
at Cheddar's. Fun night out.

Thankful for God's beautiful
Sea shells, they are just so
beautiful and screams summer
to me..........

Well, here's another week
at Cozy Place

Thanks for dropping in....

Hope you have a lovely
summer weekend.

Love, Hugs and
Mid July Blessings,

Scripture Sunday

Hello Sweet Friends,

Here is the verse for today.

Righteousness exalts a nation.
Proverbs 14:34

Friday, July 12, 2019

Thankful Thursday July 11, 2019, Our 4th of July table 2019

 Let the heavens rejoice,
 let the earth be glad;
 let them say among the nations, 
“The LORD reigns!”
1Chronicles 16:31 NIV

Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hope this finds you well and happy.
We are happy but I have been hav-
ing some problems with my foot,
think it is plantar fasciitis.  So we
got some Dr. Scholls insoles that
are made for that and they have
arch supports, so been wearing
those the last few days with tennis
shoes, and I have gotten quite a
bit of relief so hopefully doing this
for a few days will cure the problem.
So thankful for these wonderful
insoles for sure.

Pictures today are of our 4th of
July table this year.  This was
another do with what I had table.
So searched the house for things
that were red, white and blue,
and below pics are the results.

Well, on with my Thankfuls.

Thankful for a really lovely and fun
4th of July with our newer friends.
Very Enjoyable Day!!

Thankful for Pasta Salad that is so
good....a recipe from a dear friend.
Made it for the 4th.....

Check recipe here if interested.

Thankful for my friends yummy
chocolate cake that looked like
an American flag using straw-
berries and blueberries.  I can't
even remember the last time I had
 chocolate cake, so it was really
a great treat..........

Thankful for this song hubby and
I just happened on and is our new
favorite song. Make sure to listen
to the whole's so true but
also is sort of humorous as well.

Thankful for the beautiful skies
the Lord paints for us every day
all day long.  

Thankful for a fun time out with 
our friends at Cracker Barrel on
Sunday again.

Thankful for a new kitchen rug
that I have been looking for well
over a year now.  Bought several
 but  they all turned out to be the 
wrong shade of blue, and just did
 not look right.  This one is perfect!
Found it on sale on the Kirklands
website, and it showed they had
it in the store, so just decided to
go see it in person, and wound up 
finding one we liked even better.

Thankful that I am getting a lil
done on our bedroom refresh
most days. Liking it so far.....
It is coming along slow but

Thankful my son and his family
got back from my daughters
safe and sound, and that they
all had a great time as usual.

Thankful that my nephew and
his family got here on Sunday
evening,  they have moved back
here permanently (Lord Willing)
 from Missouri.
We haven't seen them yet and
it will probably be awhile as
they have parents and siblings
to see along with getting settled
in....but looking forward to 
seeing them sometime soon.

Thankful for our new turtle
friend who has been visiting
our backyard rather frequently
lately.  He seems to really be
enjoying the berries that are
falling off one of our trees,
and the shade.  I have never
seen one eat before, and he
is like a billy goat, he eats
just about anything small
that gets in his way. Sticks,
grass, weeds and berries.

Thankful to see lil darling after
2 whole weeks.  We missed her 
presence for sure, and we were
 delighted to see her, as she always
 puts a smile on our face.  We just
love her so much...and I am sure
most of you Grandparents out 
there know exactly what I mean.  

Well, there you have it folks,
hope you all had a great 4th of July!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.


Have a Great Weekend!!

Love, Hugs and 
Mid July Blessings,

Here is the scripture for today!

Have a Lovely day!

Hugs and Blessings,

Thankful Thursday July 4th, 2019, pics of 4th of July table past.

If my people, who are called by my name, 
will humble themselves and pray and seek
my face and turn from their wicked ways,
then will I hear from heaven and will
forgive their sin and will heal their land
2 Chronicles 7:14 

Happy Independence Day
Sweet Friends, and welcome
 to Thankful Thursday.

Hope you all have a Wonderful
time celebrating with family,
friends/ and or furry friends.

This is indeed the Patriotic holiday
to celebrate with abandon.
 We should all be ever so thankful 
to God, and our founding Father's
for the freedoms it has afforded
us, our family and friends and
 our dearly loved 
United States of America.
(And just in case someone might
think I live under a rock, No, I do
 hear all the naysayers, but think 
about it....if they really thought our 
country was so bad they would be
moving to these Utopias ,they all
 profess to being so wonderful)

Just decided to add a few pics 
4th of July tables past.....

Thankful for making Rice Crispy
treats with Lil darling last Thursday,
think she liked doing it, but didn't
like eating them. For some reason,
She thinks the ones you buy don't
have marshmallows in them. lol
Anyway, it was fun for me, cause
I haven't made them since my
kids left home, I think!! and I
loved them!!  and shared some
with the kids next door too.

Thankful for a good day at church
and a fun time out to lunch at
Cracker Barrel with our friends.

Thankful to see a number of old
members of our church on Sun.
evening. They are at now at our 
satellite church in another close 
by city typically, but came for the
annual business meeting.  It was
so good to see them all, but it 
was especially good to see our
co-workers that we used to do
the young marrieds class with.
We have really missed them.

Thankful that our bartering deal
from the sale of our car has finally
 kicked in.....I now having some-
one cleaning our home once a month, 
and she is amazing and does a great 
job.  Cleans just like I do. Have to
say it feels very strange to me, cause
I have been cleaning my own home
for almost 50 years, and my home of 
origin before that.... but think I can
 get used to it very quickly........and
it frees us up to work on our business
What a blessing for both of us.

Thankful that we our now 50%
closer to opening our online
card shop.  

Thankful for what an encourage-
ment and cheerleader our daughter
is about our upcoming card business. 
She had me do some cards recently
for her hubby's Mom and Dad.
Which was really sweet and

That hubby learned a new skill
on photoshop this week which
will come in handy with making
graphics in the future.

Thankful that I finally got around
to doing a 3rd post for this week.
It's been awhile....had the pics
just had no time to edit and post

Thankful for a fun night out
shopping for things we needed
to get, but also for some really
fun unexpected finds.  I have
been looking for a new light
for our foyer for well over a
year now, in fact, I finally gave
up the hunt in 2018, because
everything I found that I liked
would not work.  We needed
a flush mount and everything
I liked was not that!! 
Any who we had to go to Home
Depot last night for lawn mower
 stuff, so just decided to peruse the
lighting department and
lo and behold we found a
light we liked that was flush
mount and very similar only
smaller to the first light I loved
but that wouldn't work.  It is like
a drum shade with LED lights
inside.  Looks great!!  We really
like it so much.
 Then I found some clipboards at
 the dollar tree and have been trying
to figure out what to do with this
one wall in my bedroom since I
am refreshing in there, so they
fit the bill for that.....will put
printables on them and hang
them on the wall. Also went in
Bath and Body and made a haul
with great prices.  Love to keep
that on hand, cause it really comes
in handy for gifts or just some
times you feel like someone is
down and might need some one
to give them a love gift.  All the
lil unexpected finds really made
for a fun night too.

Thankful that Scott, Megan and
Brooklyn made it safely to my
daughter's house in Charleston
for the 4th of July.

Thankful again that hubby is so
handy and knows how to put our
light fixture up or we would have
had to pay someone to do it, and
also have to wait for them to come

Thankful that we get to celebrate
the 4th of July and the freedom
for which it represents to our
wonderful country.

Well, there you have it.........
another week at Cozy Place.

Thanks for stopping by
Have a Great 4th of July

Love, Hugs and
 Patriotic Blessings to you,

Simple Summer Sunday DinnerTable

Hello Sweet Friends,

Hope you are having a good week.
Ours has been good, uneventful yet
productive.  Been working on cards
and started working on refreshing
our bedroom, and started setting
the table for the 4th.  Our kids are
gonna be away, so we decided to
have some friends over

Did this table a few weeks before
 it was officially summer, but since
 it was already like Summer here
in Florida, it just seemed to fit the
 bill. When I think of Summer
I usually think of a Coastal many of you do!

This was another use what I 
already have table. 

I had some napkins leftover from
 another time, and since I was starting
 to work on making our living room 
have a Coastal look for Summer, and
 had to take all the Coastal decor out
 of our Bedroom this seemed like
 the perfect time.

Decided the white dishes and white
handled flatware would look nice
on a blue tablecloth.

Started with the lantern full of shells
and kept adding things.

We like the blue glasses turned 
upside down cause they sort of
 look like lighthouses.

Added some candles of course,
and some starfish bowls and 
real starfish as well

an overview

Also added the seabird and the 
shell with some look alike
 sea grass.

With a Posterized photoshop affect

Well, that's it sweet peas,

Thanks for dropping by
and have a great week.

Love, Hugs, and 
4th of July Blessings,
