About Me

My photo
I LOVE to design and to paint whimsical items that will put a smile on your face. Each day I share my simple life with you as I try to encourage, to inspire and sometimes JUST to make you smile as I recount my life growing up on a dairy farm! I've never had many material items in my life, BUT I have been blessed beyond words with love and encouragement from WONDERFUL Parents who instilled in me WHAT was important. I have had EVERYTHING that I needed and WAY too much of what I wanted. I am slowly learning to be a better person each day through my interactions with my friends on Facebook. Some day I hope to be as good as people seem to THINK I am! I am BLESSED! Welcome to my little corner of the world...Please stop by and visit often!

Serendipity Sunday

My Serendipity moment was quite Simple and Just occurred.

Charcoal and I shared part of a bag of Cotton Candy.

It always transports me to a simpler time and place~~the County Fair.

This is true on both accounts~~we used to only be able to get Cotton Candy at the Fair, now it is everywhere.  AND life is NOT fair, but it goes both way~~we get good things, more than we deserve, but we don't complain about them.  We also, get bad things, often more than we deserve, and sometimes exactly as we deserve, and boy, howdy, do we complain, BUT it is just called LIFE!!

I loved going to the fair with my family, and we spent most of the week there as my family volunteered with 4H and the Home Demonstration Club.

I loved walking through that ole tobacco warehouse with my parents, eating that sticky sugary goodness as it got on my face and hands in our humid heat...it was magical!

We saw and chatted with folks we saw often, only at this time of the year. Laughter filled the air...it was the goodness of society gathered for a week of merriment! 

As people gather this weekend with family and friends, I hope everyone pauses to REMEMBER...

Teach your kids that on Monday, we REMEMBER  those that gave their lives through Military Service

REMEMBER the families who are left only with memories...

REMEMBER that it is because of them that we get to live in a land of plenty...


As we were enjoying our treat, the words of the song I share at the end were singing in my heart.


Look at all those blessings in plain view of you and REMEMBER how much you are loved!~~charlotte

Master Designer by Kurt Kaiser

Cotton candy clouds, so fluffy and white,

Who put you there in a sky of deep blue?

Or do you just happen to float along,

Pretty and white in a sky so blue, so blue, sky so blue?

Tall mountain, deep valley, fast river, cool stream,

Show grandeur and majesty in some grand scheme

All of these wonders that we behold,

Are only a part – it cannot be told, be told, cannot be told.

Master Designer, Whoever You are,

All of this beauty both near and afar

Can’t just have happened, the odds are too great,

There must be a plan, we’re not left to fate, to fate, not left to fate.

All of this beauty is far too convincing

Master Designer, Your word must be true,

Of all Your creations man is the dearest

Help me to simply believe now in You, in you,

Believe in You.

  1. Oh my goodness! From the beginning to the end, you opened up the memory floodgate this morning! The county fair was pretty much the highlight of my summer for many years & we were also there pretty much everyday. And "Master Designer" - LOVE that song. I think i still have the "Tell It Like It Is" record album. It was played over & over & over.


Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world. In case you haven't been told, you are loved!~~charlotte♡
