A little update and a lot of thanks!

Good Morning! Happy Thursday morning! I wanted to just take a minute to Thank you all so much for your prayers and support, whilst I continue searching for a place to call home. I, also, wanted to let  you know just exactly where I'm at, right now. God's Grace and your prayers have provided me with an extension at my beautiful little home! You may or may not recall that I had only 60-days to try and locate and move into a new place to call home. If not, you can read about it here.

Well, something wonderful happened.  I have packed 80% of my beautiful belongings up and purged like no other,  allst while I had to have things somewhat tidy for the realtor to show my home to prospective buyers! Wheww! Not something I would care to go through again. But, here's the thing, the offers on the house were either too low for the current owner or contingent on some thing or another......bottom line: It has NOT sold, and I have been granted an extension through August 31st!! A good month and a half past my original move out date!

What to do Weekends #126

Happy Thursday Evening, All, & Welcome to the What to do Weekends Party! We hope you've had a wonderful and creative week!!
Linda and I each feature one of our own picks as a Bonus, we thought we'd like to start out with that!!
My Bonus feature for this week belongs to The Crafty Blog Stalker for their great tutorial on making this
Beautiful Patriotic Wreath
Now, that I've shared my bonus feature, I'd love to check in with you all and keep you up to date on what's going on with Linda and myself.

This IS What I Am Doing!


My search for a new place to call home continues. Thank you all for your prayers and kind words!  I have woken up, to this song playing in my head, more times than I can tell you.  So, I am doing as it says and Fixing my eyes on the only One, who knows all and has planned every twist and turn in my life for His Good. 

 I truly know with all my heart that He has a divine plan for me, and will let me know when the time is right.  Until then, I am using the brain, He blessed me with, and looking at and trying every possible lead. Nothing yet. 
His timing is perfect, not mine. :) 




I will keep you posted. If I was not so set in my ways, I would declare what a wonderful adventure!
So, I am trying to remind myself, daily, (no matter how uncomfortable) that this IS an incredible opportunity for growth and time to draw closer to Him. Life has taught me, in hindsight, that every trial has a reason, and that I am better and stronger after going through each and every one!
Many Blessings to you all, today, my friends!
Theresa

What to do Weekends #125

Happy Thursday Evening, All, & Welcome to the What to do Weekends Party! We hope you'be had a wonderful and creative week!!
We've been talking, and decided to do things a little different. Since Linda and I each feature one of our own picks as a Bonus, we thought we'd like to start out with that!!
So, Since you are here, Me first!! 
My Bonus feature for this week had to be Bonnie's How to Make a Lavender Wreath!! I love lavender and have made a few of these over the years to hang in my bedroom, but Bonnie has an awesome tutorial to show you how!

Time for a New Adventure!

I have some news that I want to share with you today.
I have been abundantly Blessed for the past seven and a half years with this beautiful little two bedroom house that I have come to call home.  For those of you that have been following along with Shoestring Elegance, since I began just a few years ago, you have all seen, through each and every project or rose from my garden, how much I have enjoyed my house and living here, though every single picture, I have shared with you.(which also warms my heart to know those memories are captured, here!)
