My Sister and Spring!

We had wonderful news today concerning my sister Judy, she had the cauterization this morning at 7:30 and the results were amazing…mild blockage and they are going to try medication, she is probably home by now. Yesterday I told her that there were people all over the country praying for her, she doesn’t do computers, so it was really something for her to hear, she couldn’t believe it and asked how, well, I told her “my blog”. I talked on the phone with her at about 2:30 pm today and she said “ I told them downstairs (where they did the cauterization), that my sister has everyone praying for me from her blog.” So you see ladies you meant so much to her, I thank each and everyone of you with all my heart for praying, just those tiny seconds that you took to do this turned it into a miracle and I give all the glory to God!  I’m so happy now but over the weekend I was a wreck just couldn’t concentrate on anything but today is different and spring is in the air but just in the house… outside snow is melting from snow we got Saturday! I really hope that was the last snow of the winter:) Here are a few photos that I just took…
In a corner of the livingroom on my desk…
Corner of the diningroom!
In the corner of my kitchen counter! Shabby tin with greenery and cow creamer are from GW.
In the entryway! The vase and milk glass dish is a GW find!
I put my stone heart with the arrangement.
My mantel, the ceramic, white candlesticks are from GW!
Yes, that’s a cottage white paint sample taped there, I’m trying to see if I should paint the mantel:) Also the pot with the greenery is from GW and the birds or doves I can’t figure out what type of bird they are.LOL
On the hearth! I found the Santa Clara Prune box not to long ago at the flea market!
Here is something new I picked up at Marshall’s, love it and I’m thinking of putting something spring in it but I sure do have to get rid of those pinecones now:)
I know I’ve showed this before but what Mr. K said cracked me up, he thought it was a dress!!! Priceless!
Again thank you and I hope you are having a wonderful evening wherever you are!
I’m joining these fun parties:
Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays
Tuesdays Treasures
Twice Owned Tuesdays
Thanks ladies for hosting, I always enjoy them!

Hi Rondell...

So happy to hear the great news about your sister, my friend! God is sooo good to us and always faithful to hear the prayers of his people! I will be praying for your sister's continued healing!

Well dear lady, you certainly have some pretty spring going on over at your place! I just loved getting a peek at all of your pretty vignettes! By the way...I love that little lampshade that you have on the lamp on your kitchen counter...sooo cute! are contemplating whether to paint your mantel or not? I think it would look fabulous done up in that pretty creamy white! It would really stand out then! Best wishes on your design decisions! And...thank you so much for sharing all of your beautiful spring vignettes with us...this was such a sweet treat, my friend!

Warmest wishes,
Chari @Happy To Design

Rondell, I am so happy about your sister! Blog land is wonderful...but it is just a computer world..and real sisters are to be treasured forever....that is when blogs take second place...or third or fourth. Love all your flowers and it is starting to look a lot like Spring at your house. As for me...we have a snow storm on the way...YAAAAHHH...(sarcasm at its best) Hugs-diana

I'm happy your sister is doing well. Your home looks really pretty and I love that lantern.

Rondell, I was away from my computer all weekend so I missed the post about your sister. I'm so happy to hear there is some great news out of this. Prayers were definitely answered!!

Love all your spingness. I'm getting mine out this week!

So happyt to hear the good news about your sister.
I got a lantern at Marshall's on is the same color as yours, but a different shape. There had the one you got there too and I had a hard time deciding which one I wanted. Going to post about mine later tonight or tomorrow.
Love all your Spring touches!!

the cape on the corner said...

so glad to hear your sister is doing ok, thank goodness.

your mantle looks great, and i think painting would be a good idea-it would definitley become a feature and a focus, as well as brighten up the space. besides, if you didn't like it, you could always paint it darker or strip the paint off!

Winterwood said...

its so good to hear that she did so well and will continue to make a great recovery!

Emily said...

I love everything that you have added spring! Everything is absolutely darling!!!
Love the heart shaped stone...I have a little collection of them too.
Glad your sister is doing well.

Glad your sister is doing better. Really love your spring vignette with the flowers. If you are taking votes, I'd paint the mantel. It would show up better white against the dark brick.

Colleen/And Baby Makes Five said...

Wonderful news, Rondell!!! I hope your sister continues to make great strides in her recovery.

Spring is looking lovely at your house.

Debbie said...

Praise God for the good news! Prayer works wonders.
Rondell...your house looks awesome!!! I love all the white accents, and how you've displayed everything. It all looks so bright!
Have a great week.

Tammy@Beatrice Banks said...

Such awesome news about your sister! This blog thing is wonderful! Thankful that God heard our prayers.
Your spring touches are just gorgeous! I love them all. I have a little cow creamer too. I noticed Target is now carrying them in both white and blue/white.
Have a great day!

Ellen said...

This is wonderful news! I was not online last night but for a minute and missed this. I am so glad your sister is doing better then you thought. You are right, I know God was listening to our prayers! Woohoo! I am going to still keep the two of you in my prayers! Your new springs touches are so pretty too! I am sooo ready for spring!

Robin said...

Your touches of spring are so very pretty. I just can hardly wait for the warmer weather inching towards us.

Hi, I'm Suz!! said...

Rondell - I read about your sister, and I'm so glad she's doing better. My sister is 17 years older than me and we're close, too.

I love your prune box!! And the hydrangea (sp?) you used! Funny - That is the flower I want to put in my box, too!!

I hope you have a great day, today, and thank you for stopping by my blog yesterday!! We have similar tastes!! How cool is that?

Hugs ~~ Suz
