Romance in Your Day!

Hello I would like to encourage you to put some Romance into your life.   We all need a bit of Romance and to me the definition of Romance is simply sharing your love with someone or yourself by recognizing and sharing something beautiful, and being thoughtful and kind to others.

Call a loved one yourself a few flowers, or some pretty art papers and make a little collage or decoupage a little box...... have a cool and fruity a wonderful book, or go window shopping on a warm sunny afternoon!  Find that friend you haven't talked with in a long time and send them a pretty little card or sweet little gift.   For your special loved one....give them that special little kiss on the cheek, a hug or a thank you....think of them, smile and do something thoughtful and special just for them!  Romance is a gift we share.......

I love anything that is heart hubby when he goes to the library and brings home lovely home gardening or decorating books just for me!  My youngest son, when he hugs me and calls me "cutie face".   When my oldest son, when he sees that I need a new watch...goes and picks out one that is exactly the one I love and brings it home with such a smile.  My daughter, when she thinks of ways for the two of us to see each other, through projects or simply a short lunch...and always knowing what I want for Christmas or Birthdays and lets the "Guys" know. (hehehe)  For all of the wonderful hugs and kisses that are my greatest gift and for the Love the Lord Above Gives me each day in sooo many ways! 

Be looking for the Romance and Love, it's there.....take a deep breath, close your eyes, take that moment and think of the beauty of a rose, the softness of a warm breeze in the spring, the twinkling of the Night Time Summer Sky full of lightening bugs....Romance, a will of the spirit,  a mindset, and a sense of thankfulness!  These are my gifts to you dear friends, the encouragement to think of love and beauty, the sharing of ideas and my love to you!  God Bless You Today! 

The lovely collage is by my facebook friend Javier!!!

Geez It's HOT!!!!

I love Summer, well because I LOVE Roses....but other than that,'s just too darn hot!!!  I know that you guys don't know about this, but I inherited my Grandmother's 1982 Ford Granada, and I adore my car....but she does not have one very important thing anymore ~~~ AIRCONDITIONING~~~  and she sure gets hot.  

I have one remedy that I use, I have a little blue spray bottle that I keep in my purse, and everyone in the car uses it to spray ourselves down, and the moving air going through the car with the windows down, ahhhh, it's more lovely than airconditioning, the wind hitting our skin just sprinkled with little droplets of water....very nice....BUT, and this is a big BUT, when we have to stop at red lights and sit in the's just awful.

Owning an older car...has it's plusses and it's minuses...plusses, no car payment, no computer to go wrong, inexpensive insurance and really low car tag...

Minuses, pretty awful gas mileage, no air conditioning, and well the repairs from time to time...

But the one thing that I feel is the biggest plus is.....well she is just plain cool....I mean how many 1982 Ford Granadas are there around anymore?  And running pretty good too....she is a straight 6 cylinder engine, she is an expensive carburetor, (not fuel injected, so no computer)...and newly bought white wall tires.

I have a short story about those tires....I have needed new tires for a while, and I REALLY wanted some white wall tires, and all of the tire places said that they are expensive and my hubby said well, no.....and I was really disappointed...but you know what?  God is good!  My hubby works for an Autoparts/Repair place and they had some discounted discontinued tires, in my size and he bought them~~~~I mean, who would not take 4 tires for $120?   And so I was resigned to the fact that I would never be able to get my little car, my much desired white walls....

Until we went to get them mounted, I had noticed blue on the tires, but it just didn't register...and the gentleman came out to see the tires and write down what we wanted done, and he asked "Did you want the white walls in or out?" 

He probably thought I was nuts, that poor man!  I got so excited, I grabbed his arm and was like.."Whitewalls?" and "Thank you Jesus!"  To me, that is a wish from my heart being fulfilled.....So why would I ever doubt that God loves me, that He won't take care of me and mine, if he cares so much to give me the whitewalls that I wanted so desperately and at such a great deal too! I mean it's really such a small thing~~~~

"For every good and perfect gift comes from above"  James 1:17

 The lovely advertisement of the period for my car~~

A Picture of the exact model that I have....mine looks just like this one!!!!  Buttercream vanilla with a vinyl top!  Love my girl!!!

I know that this an unusual blog for a lady doing a life style and fashion and jewelry design blog...but well...she's my baby and I did say that I would share my dreams....and getting this one all fixed up properly is one of my dreams....and whitewall tires are a step in the right up....paint job and a new vinyl roof.....

Much love, hugs and kisses!!! ~~Angela~~
