Hymn of Promise

In the bulb there is a flower; in the seed, an apple tree; in cocoons, a hidden promise; butterflies will soon be free! In the cold and snow of winter there's a spring that waits to be, unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.

There's a song in every silence, seeking word and melody; there's a dawn in every darkness, bringing hope to you and me. From the past will come the future; what it holds, a mystery, unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.

In our end is our beginning; in our time, infinity; in our doubt there is believing; in our life, eternity. In our death, a resurrection; at the last, a victory, unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see. ~~ words & music by Natalie Sleeth, 1986 United Methodist Hymnal

My New Etsy Shoppe and Favorite Saturdays with Laurie

Well I finally did it! Some of you know I make jewelry. My friends have been telling me for months to put my jewelry on Etsy and I finally did. Just look over to your right! I was up till 2 am this morning!! I feel sort of vulnerable! My own personal creations out there for someone to either love or hate! I plan on adding more pieces but I thought I would start slow. I also have some purses I've decorated that I call "Wedding Purses" I want to add, especially with the season coming up! I made one for a friend's daughter-n-law when my friend's son was getting married. Bride's need a little purse too! She absolutely loved it and when her sister got married she used it too! I may even have some tassels!!! I know, blogland is full of tassels!! LOL! But I do enjoy making them and mine are a little different. I am also trying to get back into blogging again!! I've got an Easter tablescape I need to share! Love You All!!! Lauralu :)
I am also joining Laurie @ http://bargainhuntingwithlaurie.blogspot.com/ for her "My Favorite Things Saturday"! She has such a wonderful blog, almost as wonderful as herself! I love to create and I love jewelry, especially fashion and vintage jewelry so I'm shamelessly promoting my new Etsy Shoppe here! Okay, maybe I feel a little shamed but making my jewelry is one of my favorite things to do !


  1. Good for you!!!! Glad you took the plunge and I wish you much success. The little butterfly on each piece is such a nice touch.
    You are not shamelessly promoting - you are just getting the word out there! :-)
    I am excited for you! :-D

  2. Oh how exciting Lauralu! Congratulations! I'm so glad you linked your beautiful creations to Favorite Things! I really don't wear jewelry (don't ask me why, I just never have), but yours looks so unique and beautiful, you may convince me that I should. laurie

  3. good for you Laurie!! I love your jewelry! I can't imagine the hours you put in to one of these pieces! So proud of you that you are up and running with your little shop!

    I have been wanting to do this with my antiques but just cannot seem to fit it in with everything else going on- guess just not God's timing for me yet- ok I am TRYING to be patient!

    bee blessed

  4. I totally understand how you feel...embarrassed,vulnerable...but you really shouldn't!You aren't alone and you'll be very successful,I'm sure!

  5. Lauralu--I am so impressed! You have just beautiful pieces!!! I love the cross and can't wait to see the purses. Congratulations on taking the leap. Good luck!
