A banner of love.

Made with love for a very special person.

For a very special day.

Happy-happy-happy 18th!


"Just practice."

"The peace within our soul is not derived from the contemplation of our own faith, but it comes from him who is our peace, the hem of whose garment faith touches, and virtue comes out of him into our soul."

Charles Spurgeon, from All of Grace


Beanie baby.

There's a peculiar thing that happens when one reaches a certain age.

All at once, everyone you know is either getting married or having a baby.


Apparently, I have reached that age.


Here is love, vast as the ocean.

"The common mercies we enjoy all sing of love, just as the sea-shell, when we put it to our ears, whispers of the deep sea whence it came; 
but if we desire to hear the ocean itself, we must not look at every-day blessings, but at the transactions of the crucifixion. 

He who would know love, let him retire to Calvary and see the Man of sorrows die."

Charles Spurgeon, Morning and Evening - April 10th


A little glimpse...

...of the artistic talents soon to grace the pages of our Etsy shop.

This first one's a peony.

And this one's a chrysanthemum.
