"When it snows she has no fear for her household for all of them are clothed in scarlet. She makes coverings for her bed."

"She is clothed with strength and dignity: she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness." Proverbs

I love this passage so much it was hard to pick which parts to put in this post.

God bless. Linda and Carol

I forgot to tell you that I linked your giveaway on my blog too!

Mir said...

OH My Gosh Diane! Talking to you on the phone last night I realized I had yet to check out the giveaway ... I am so glad I remembered to look first thing this morning as it is the last day to enter! I love your assortment of black and white goodies :). OH, and we did finish Lonesome Dove!

Mir said...

Ok - I want three entries (as my blog is no currently not attended to ...) and I love to check out your shops anyway ... So:
From The Little Birdie I really like how you have gone chunky with the bracelets (better for reading your favorite passages!) And I like how you framed important names in the earrings ... I already have and enjoy my Twilight bracelets (Thank you!) so I guess I have to pick something that I did not see on your site but I know is possible - An earring set with Bella and Edward framed in the earrings (does that count as a favorite thing? Something I want :) ) I also like the festive red needle book - the fabric is very pretty.
From Acorn Pudding I have a tie between the Origami book and the folk peasant earrings. Both are great!!
Keep up the good work Diane!

Mir said...

I just reread my last comment and am embarressed that I did not proof read very well ... And now I will stop leaving you comments on this post ... :)

Patty said...

My favorite thing in your Acorn Pudding shop is the vintage turquoise apron with the ric rac and flowers. I've been eyeing it for awhile and hoping it will still be for sale when I once again have a paycheck so I can get it.

Patty said...

(I love how I waited until the last minute to do this.) My favorite thing in your Little Birdie shop are the dolls. They are so cute!
