Recipe For Love

When I saw this sign I had to have it!  This is such a great recipe for everyone to follow.  Get the ingredients right and simmer.

This year will be our 40th anniversary.  My honey is wonderful, he loves my decorating, and lets me be as shabby as I want to be.
I love this column with it's beautiful gray chippyness.  I placed it next to my white fireplace to display my newest purse find.

Isn't that beading and hardware just divine.
So art deco, victorian.  My heart strings where singing over this!  So glad it came home with me.
The lining is so cool.  I can see a nest perched in here.

One more look at the column and still my heart.

1 Corinthians 13 4-7

Love is patient, love is kind. 

Love does not envy,

is not boastful, is not conceited,

does not act improperly,

is not selfish, is not provoked,

and does not keep a record of wrongs.

Love finds no joy in unrighteousness

but rejoices in the truth.

It bears all things, believes all things,

hopes all things, endures all things.

This passage was read at our wedding and has been held close to my heart all these years.

This is where my sign has ended up.  I will follow these words...
