A photo project...

Good Evening dear hearts.. 
How are you all doing? 
Hope you had a good weekend... 

Here in Eastern Canada the weather is typical of our Springs.. 
Some rain and cool days and then a really warm one or two.. 
Never quite sure what is coming our way but so long as it is not a snow storm then I am loving the season.. 

My favourite month is May mainly because it is all coming new and I love it... 
June would be my favourite but there is an insect that arrives here in June and it ruins the month for me.. LOL... 
The Junebug..
 I have noticed that they are arriving at the end of May for the last few years.. Oh well.. The first good lightning storm they are supposed to disappear but I am not sure they do.. 
How did I get on that? grin.. 

The post tonight is just some photos that I have taken and kind of like... 

I am trying to clean up my computer pics and it seems that Sunday afternoon is a good time to do that simple chore.. 
When a person blogs there are just so many pics...

So here they are.. 
I will explain them as we go.. 
If you have been following the blog for awhile you will probably recognize some ... 

The one above is the old church up at the farm... 
I took the picture one evening after we left the farm and was heading home.. So old fashioned looking, I think... 

Matthew 5:16
In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.. 

This is a table setting at the farm, too... 
Terry had given me these sweet place mats for Christmas one year and the old dishes were a gift from a lovely elder sister at our church many years ago.. 
I still love and use them.. 

Psalm 23:5
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies, You have anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows.. 

You probably have read here that I am a lace and linen collector... 
This is some of my stash and my first pair of shoes that my Mom kept ... The photo is of my Dad and I ..
It is just a little vignette that I did for fun.. 

Exodus 39:31
And they tied unto it a lace of blue, to fasten it on high upon 
the mitre; as the Lord commanded Moses.. 

Looking at the farm through the Lupins.. 
They are so pretty and will be in bloom here very soon.. 
Do you have Lupins where you live?  

1 Peter 1:24
For,"All people are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall."

A lovely couple of home made bears that a friend of mine made.. 
When I did the craft shows we would trade our crafts and these were very special as they are made out of old fur coats.. 
They are sitting on a chair my Mom gave me for one of my big birthdays.. grin. It belonged to my great aunt Emily and is in our living room here at home.. 

Isaiah 32:18
Then my people will live in a peaceful habitation, And in secure dwellings and in undisturbed resting places.. 

The back of our old cottage in St. Martins down by the Bay of Fundy.. 
Daffodil time... 

Song of solomon 2:11-12
For behold, the winter is past; the rain is over and gone.. The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.. 
A wee tea set from Occupied Japan that I found at my sweet antique dealer Julia's house.. 
How I miss my dear friend..

John 15:12
My command is this; Love each other as I have loved you.. 

Cows in the pasture and dandelions growing in the field behind.. 
This is what it looks like here in New Brunswick right now.. 

Psalms 50:10
For every beast of the forest is Mine, The cattle on a thousand hills..
The pictures are from the farm, cottage and this one is here at home.. 
Our dining and living room here..
This was taken in the Fall I think before I made a few improvements over the Winter. 
I need to take a new photo... smile.. 

John 21:12
Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine.. 

These Jump-ups are growing at the farm now.. 
My aunt planted them and they have spread but I think they are so pretty, eh? 

Isaiah 40:8
The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever.. 
Another pic of the living room.. 
Lots of old stuff in there.. smile.. 

Isaiah 43:18
Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old..
These are the Forget Me Nots at the cottage.. 
As you can see I am a flower lover .. 
Even when I was a little girl it was something I loved to do and was always picking them. 
I even remember where I would find the first Mayflowers in Turtle Creek when we lived there so long ago.. 
I was only about 8 I think.. 
This is a trait I inherited from our Mother.. She loves them, too.. 
And my sister does, also..

Matthew 6:30
And if God cares so wonderfully for wild flowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you.. Why do you have so little faith?

This is our special Spring delight here in the Maritimes.. 
Fiddleheads along with some venison.. 
They are a delicious fern that grow by the rivers and streams and you serve them with butter and vinegar.. mmmm..
We had some for lunch today... 

Genesis 9:3
Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you .. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything..  
Our flower bed has gone wild with this precious flower..
My Grandmother's favourite.. 
Lily of the Valley... 
They always remind me of our Lord.. 

He is the rose of Sharon and the lily of the valley.. 
Song of Solomon 2

This is a bedroom at the old cottage... 
I love high soft beds and have made them this way by adding an extra box spring to each bed and a big soft comforter under the sheets... smile.. 

Psalms 4:8
In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety.. 

Thank you for visiting dear friends and may God bless your week.. 


  1. I love these pics with the Scriptures after fitting. I, too, love flowers & inherited that from my mother as well. I also love high, soft beds with comfy linens. Any new visitors I have always ask how I get into my's a welcome place after some very physical days putting in a new garden.

  21. Here in the great central valley of California, we cannot grow lupines or lily of the valley (sigh). We get too hot! Tomorrow the high temperature is forecast to be 105 degrees! But we can grow many tropical plants like hibiscis and bird of paradise.
