~A few days at HOME! =) ~

Jesus has been giving us a great deputation (and we still have about a month left)...but we always LOVE IT when we get to be home for a few hours.
Especially now since I have our things we left stored in AZ...I'm wanting to PLAY HOUSE rather than ride in the van. =) 
And earlier I had told y'all that when one becomes a missionary they have to give up A lot!  
Well, I'm here to BRAG on my Jesus!  He's given basically everything back to us and maybe MORE! =)
~One of the things I'm so HAPPY to have back from our things in AZ is my antique sewing machine cabinet...for which our Uncle Mark made a granite table top.~
 ~Here's a colander of fresh strawberries sitting on it.~
~Earlier I had shown y'all a picture of our new-to-us china cabinet with my WHITE dishes in it.  Now I have our fruit china in it...so that meant I needed a place for all of my white dishes.  While going down the road I have LOTS of time to THINK!!  =)  So, one of those times Jesus helped me think of....~
~Using one of our book cases for my white dishes!  (and the bottom of this shelf has 2 doors for  storing other dishes. =) ~

~Our downstairs is FAR from finished. And for some reason (s) (Deputation, Deputation, Deputation =)...it's not really a priority with us right now. =)
So, I decided that even in the midst of wires and a dryer vent, etc. I could still decorate some to help my heart.
My sweetheart helped me hang a "clothes line" and I hung some of the kids tiny clothes to help "take your eyes away from" some of the wires, vent, etc. =)
I did a mixture of my Coca Cola things, and laundry things.
My friend Angie from AZ just shared some of her FUN Coca Cola things with me too. =)
(Yes, you are seeing right.  Jesus (and a friend and one of our supporters) have BLESSED ME with 2 washers!!~
~Click on picture to enlarge.~
~I hung the "Laundry sign" on the line with burlap strips. =)
I'm loving our laundry room's "Cracker Barrel Look".~
 ~And while we were in MO a friend gave me this fun old fan.
I love it setting on our "3 antique suitcases end table" in our living room. =)~
 ~Shortly after I got here...My sweet friend Connie from our church gave me this old window with the wreathe on it.  I LOVE IT!!!...and hung it in our entry way.~ 
 ~The colors of the wreathe don't really show up that well, but they match our new rug in our living room that Mrs. Joan bought for us before we came home. =) ~
 ~I then REALLY wanted a bench to put below the window.  
Jesus must have heard that desire....for someone gave me this fun OLD bench when we were in PA in April. =) ~
 
 ~Our entry way.  =) ~
We've been having fun at home for 3 days.  Now we leave again today for more services.
Thank you for your prayers as we travel.

Where was this neat-o picture of Phillip and you taken? It is such an awesome picture!
I am happy that your little marble-topped table is finally in his own home again where he belongs. The entryway is very cute and it's hard to believe that your bench fits pretty much to a T. I like that little wreath, and it looks perfect hanging on the old window. Your white dishes look pretty in the dark-colored bookcase. I am glad that you have two washing machines. If anyone needed two washers, YOU DO! Now, all you need is another dryer. Dad and I are happy that you are getting your things unpacked and set up in your home. Love, Mom D
