Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name. 1 Chronicles 29:13 NIV
Greetings Sweet Friends, Hope this finds you well and happy. Can you believe it... I am actually on time for once.............lol We are well and happy, and enjoying our day at home, as today is usually our day out since we pick up lil darling, on Thursdays, but Lil darling is out of school on break, this week, so she is home with her Daddy today, but we did have a fun day with her yesterday. So tomorrow or Saturday will be our day out this week. Pictures today are from our Winter family room again!
If you missed Part 3, and would like to see click here.
So on with it.............
Thankful for a fun sleepover
with lil darling on Friday night
so her Mom and Dad could
celebrate Valentine's Day.
Thankful that our roofing man
was able to come back out this
weekend, cause as we were away
we had no chance of knowing if
the roof leak was fixed cause it
didn't rain before we left, but the
night we got home it rained all
night and it was still leaking in
2 places which I think were all
coming from the same area. The
other end of the porch was fine.
So hopefully we will know for
sure by Tues. or Wed. as it is
suppose to rain again...lol
Thankful for what a lovely
and honest man the roofer
is.....he responded right away
to hubbies call, and then came
out on Sunday to fix it, because
he couldn't get here on Sat.
like he had planned. He had
a very good reason for not
coming as well. He was work-
ing on another ladies roof and
he had just told her that some
one had cut her rafters putting
an A/C unit in and that it was
very precarious, and so they
had just all gotten off the roof
as they were talking to the lady
and the whole roof collapsed.
Thankful that no one was hurt.....
Sounds pretty miraculous to me.
and he said she didn't have much
damage inside to her things, it
seems, as the dining room table
and her sofa kept the roof from
hitting the floor, so they were
there till 10 at night helping
her get moved out.
Neat thing....hubby and I had
prayed for he and his crew for
safety on Sat. morning, as we
thought he would be on our
roof that afternoon.
Thankful for an incredibly good movie based on a true story about an Army Chaplain and his family and what they went through.....we think every American needs to see it....it will give you a much deeper understanding and appreciation for what our military families go thru. It is called "Indivisible" and you can rent it on ChristianCinema.com or Amazon.com as well. #6
Thankful for more work we got done in the backyard. More grapevine gone!! yea!!
As you can see we had a tree theme going on, so copied and printed trees full of snow for my board....... #7 Thankful that we found out our roofer does other handy man things. So we asked him about tearing down our shed so we could put up a new one, and he said have you ever thought of just fixing it, since it is a solid structure? and we said we just didn't know if it could be fixed altho looking at it you would not know it is in bad repair, so looking like he is gonna repair it for us, which makes us both happy as my hubbies Dad built it as a playhouse for my daughter when she was 2 or 3, so it is over 30 years old, but I love it as I think it adds character to our backyard. So very happy about this news.
#8 Thankful for our sweet neighbor. She once again brought us some of her homemade Vegetable soup and it was delicious as always. #9 Thankful that we got to spend some time with her this week as we had her come over so she could watch them cut her big diseased Oak tree down in her front yard. We were all sad to see it go, but good not to have to worry about it ever falling on the house during a storm.
#10 Thankful that my daughter and son-in-love made it safely to Colorado for a get-away with along time friend and her immediate and extended family. They were like a 2nd family to Dee when she was growing up. #11 Thankful that she has a lot of friends at work that want to keep Bentley (their new 4 mo.+ old puppy). One of them is staying at their house to keep him while they are away. Such a nice lady.
#12 Thankful that someone close to me prayed and asked Jesus into their heart. Wonderful!! They will never regret that decision.

Well, there you have it folks, another week at Cozy Place. Thanks for the visit and Have a fantastic weekend. Love, Hugs and End of February Blessings Sharing with: Life with Lorelai
Happy Tuesday So how are ya sweet Friends We are fine, just trying to get back on track after our trip. Thought I would show you another project I did that was quick and easy. Loving these projects!!
Here is my Inspiration Photo
It came out of the same magazine
"Entertain and Celebrate Winter".
as my other projects.
Have to say this magazine has
had some of the most fun and
easy projects I have seen in a
I have seen a lot of birch out there in
blogland last and this Winter, and
liked the look, then of course I saw
the inpiration photo, so when we
were at Michaels I looked for some
birch but didn't see the kind you can wrap around like they did in the inspiration photo, and they had some Birch wood rounds but they were expensive and not really what I wanted anyway, so the thought came to me to check the scrapbookpaper.... and when I did.... I found this wood look paper and thought hey, that works for me.
See candle below!
I already had some clear glass
candle cups from old candles that
were used up and that I had
cleaned and stored.
So just laid them on their side
and marked where to cut the paper. I just realized I should have rotated this picture so you could see the mark. Sorry! It is at the the bottom of glass cup.
then cut it on my paper cutter, but you can do it with scissors if you draw a straight line from where the mark is to the top of the paper.
Then laid the paper out front side down and sprayed the paper with the Elmers spray adhesive. At this point you have to work quickly as it dries pretty quick.
Then I sat the candle cup on the sticky paper carefully, and began rolling it up onto the candle cup. Be careful to roll it slowly and straight.
Then smooth it all over to make sure it adhered to the glass well,
and here it is...I did another one for the tutorial and put a reg. small pillar candle inside this time. Quick and easy.....took less than 5 mins.
The first ones I did I put mercury glass votive cups inside of the them and loved how they came out. Again a very
quick and easy project and it only cost me .99 cents for the scrapbook paper. I already had the mercury glass votive and the"Elmers Extra strength spray adhesive," as well. And you don't really need the extra votive holder unless you want to have it. I just thought it dressed it up a bit and looked better than just a plain votive candle by itself.
Look for pretty packaging that you
can incorporate into your decorating
at times. It is free fun and beauty.
This is another vignette in the room.
I used a tin that we got Italian cookies
in at Christmas time. Also used a
pretty cookie tin on the bottom of
my rolling cart you saw a few pics
back. It was white and gold.
Nothing like free decor!!
Here I just stuck some greenery and
a pine cone in a perfume box I also
got for Christmas.
It smells fabulous and I loved the
box as well.....
If you have followed me long, you know
I enjoy the packaging of many things, and
think it is a shame to let it go in the trash
until I have repurposed it even just for
a little while........guess because I know
how much creativity and work goes
into it....since I design cards.

Good Saturday Morning Sweet Friends, Hope this finds you doing well. I am a bit later than usual, as we pretty much hit the ground running when we got home from our trip onTues. evening and have been busy every since. So I am just gonna get this posted.
Thankful for a safe and uneventful
trip to Charleston and back to visit our daughter, DeeAnna and son-in-love
Jerry, and to meet our new FURRY Grandson puppy, Bentley.
Thankful for a great time visiting, eating in and out, enjoying her cream cheese strawberry coffee cake, card playing, shopping and watching HGTV at night, enjoying their lovely home and some cooler weather, but not too cold, perfect for us really.
Thankful to finally get to meet
this newest member of the family.
He is a reddish micro golden doodle
and such a cutie and very smart as
well. He was totally housebroken
in about 2 weeks. Once he gets passed that teething stage he is gonna make a great pet.
Thankful that he was not biting
as much as he previously was.
Our daughter was concerned
about that cause he is still teeth-
ing and their lil teeth are so sharp, and hubby takes blood thinners, that was her concern.... But he didn't get us one time, so that was a good thing!! lol
With poster edges affect
Thankful that we were able to
sit outside for a couple of the
days, and go for one golf cart ride the first few days that were high 60's as those are 2 things we really enjoy doing. No pictures tho, but since it is Winter they wouldn't be so great anyway............
Thankful for a few times we
all went out shopping, it was
a lot of fun. We found a new
store called "Five Below"
Everything in the store was $5. or less.
With lighting affect #7
Thankful we tried a new to us
Mexican restaurant called
"Mex One" There food was
really good. Will really want to go back there next time we visit them.
Thankful for some really yummy
edible goodies we found while
browsing in world market, we got some chocolate covered blueberries and something called Lemon blueberry Drizzlers by creative snacks co. They are really good.....
Thankful our friend who is
getting married in June found
her perfect Wedding dress and
$100 under budget, as she was
concerned about that.....so that
was an answer to prayer and she
was quite thrilled about that.
#10 Thankful that my daughter-in love said we are getting a "Five Below" here soon.
So excited about that.....
#11 Thankful for the opportunity to do 2 random acts of kind- ness for a lady at the grocery store. Was a great way to enjoy Valentines day!! #12 Thankful for a quiet but nice Valentines day. A nice 30 min. walk in the neighborhood, a trip to the grocery store to find a dessert we both liked, picking up lil darling and getting take out from Carrabbas for later in the evening, and getting her frozen custard, and getting some for us too, which wasn't in the plan but they were buy 1 get one free for Valentines day, so we couldn't resist....Turtle Sundae's... Yum! Bringing her home and spending some time with her, and giving her a Valentines gift that she really liked. Having dinner after she left and then watch- ing the movie "Dumplin", which wasn't in our plan either, but turned out to be different but good....
We were gonna watch "You've
got mail", one of our favs,
so saving it for another night.

week at Cozy Place

Sweet Friends, Hope this finds you refreshed and relaxed.
We were away since last Wed. night and just got home last night. We were in Charleston to see our daughter and son-in- love....and to meet our new fury member of the family. It was very relaxing and refreshing and fun as always. The time just goes by too quickly but we are grateful for the time we had......
Wanted to show you a pretty and very simple table center- piece I did back in January.
Here was my inspiration picture. Not the greatest pic...my fault tho.
