I Love Thursday #203 Muchas Bendiciones
This is the 203rd post of things we love for the week. We post each Thursday along with LeeAnna from Not Afraid of Color. Several additional friends also share on a weekly basis – be sure to check them out as you will surely find something to inspire you. “From the fullness of His grace, we have all received one blessing after another.” John 1:16
Mosaic Tiles! I stumbled upon this article about the discovery of an ancient roman mosaic tile during the building of a luxury hotel in Turkey. This picture has been downloaded from the linked article and I find it just fascinating. The ripples are from various earthquakes over the centuries. It was discovered back in 2009 and is believed to date back to the 4th century. What an amazing find. Wouldn’t it make a great inspiration for a quilt?!
Looking closely at the layout, it reminds me of the heart-shaped pixel memory quilt we made a few years ago. Of course, our “tiles” were not nearly to the scale of the mosaic! These gorgeous ancient mosaics remind me of the postage stamp quilts – something I’ve never been tempted to try with all those seams.
Get started! This meme seems to be appropriate for the beginning of a new year. Chase your dreams because they won’t chase you. It’s the perfect time to try something new that you’ve been meaning to.
Unbelievably blessed! Another meme that could easily be the placard for our weekly posts. It also reminds me of something that would be painted on a piece of wood to be displayed in your home. It does sum up our week . . . and life. The good Lord has blessed us plentifully.
Our littles . . . our biggest blessings! Colt is telling us what Sesame Street’s Oscar says, Get out of here! Of course, Oscar doesn’t say it with a sweet smile. Dominic and Addison busied themselves with making some get well signs for GG. She took a spill on black ice and broke her hip, but I know these well wishes will help her recover quickly! The dynamic duo playing with the Frozen castle – Dominic is opening the door to see what treasures Addison has lined up for him. Appropriate swimwear was needed when playing with Barbie and her pool. I don’t understand why they can’t make these pieces to scale – Barbie towers over the slide for her wading pool. It surely cannot be called a swimming pool.
While Addison and Dominic try out D’s new desk and white board in his room . . . Chase and D check out Addison’s vanity in her room. I guess making faces at each other in the mirror is a brotherly thing to do! Addison and Chase are on the case and cookin’ in the kitchen! Chase gets a chance to play with Mr. Hooper’s Store all by himself which is a rare occurrence. And finally, Chase the helper is helping fold laundry and wishes you a very happy Thursday. Stay safe!
