should be so close to God
that a man should have
to chase Him to find her.

And I do too! 





  1. I must try the Marshmallow Ice Cream. I've made other flavours using the whipped cream and sweetened condensed milk as the base. I found the cutest little bowls for ice cream at the dollar store. They have little ice cream cones marching around the outside. I'm giving a set to two of my friends for Easter so wanted to also include a recipe for no-churn ice cream. This would be perfect. Those blue flowers are so pretty. They look almost like hollyhocks but I don't believe they are. The remedy for a sore throat is good to keep handy. I'm wondering how to cut the ginger into such thin sticks. I guess maybe by using a knife? Happy Friday, Marie. Hugs, Elaine

    1. Oh those bowls sound adorable Elaine. I rarely go out shopping now for much of anything. Maybe in March I will have a boo around the shops. Yes, I would use a knife to cut the ginger! Or maybe grate it on your box grater? It all depends on how small you want it I guess! Love and hugs, xoxo

  2. Marie, I found the recipe for the Marshmallow Ice Cream

  3. Cutie things:) I had loved those tags too:) The cabbage sounds like a plan!
    I love it steamed w/ white vinegar lol:)I just love cabbage.

    1. Oh that sounds good also Monique. Steamed with white vinegar. I must give that a try! Thanks! xoxo

  4. Wow Marie.....I was going to comment on how cute the little gnomes were and the fun indoor picnic and the......! There was an overload of good things in this post so I thought it best not to comment on everything or it would make for a double overload.
    Great blog today - Thanks.

  6. Hi Marie~

    Wonderful post...loved it all! Marshmallow Ice Cream, who knew?! I can't wait to try that one! Gnomes are so cute and fun, I would love to crochet that cute little guy. And, I would love to make some cute dishtowels for my kitchen, I think I might even be able to handle that pattern. I have been thinking about my junk journal, so you gave me some great inspiration!

    Hope your Friday was wonderful, I hope your weather has dried up a little. We are still in a deep freeze, but I know that it will warm up soon. Love you tons! XOXO

    Hugs and Love,
