Vintage linens~repurposed materials~thread~ Heavenly Inspiration

 I was heavenly inspired to make this baby baptismal blanket. It was my first attempt working with an old piece of linen.


The piece had beautiful lace on the edge, I am sure in its first life it was a table cloth. Nicely square with only one small hole and a few other weak areas.

                                                                                                                                                                            It turned out so soft and perfect for whom it was made for.

And I made a little keepsake sack.

Spring ~ Chia Seeds ~ Birthday!

I have been into eating Chia Seeds lately..... you know when you get older, eating healthy becomes more important.
  I eat them in my Oatmeal in the morning. My latest is eating them as a Crunchy Banana.  Just dip  the banana into the seeds.A day off work, browsing a magazine and eating a healthy snack! A great Birthday. Can't wait to eat out tonight with my dear hubby at my favorite resturant.

 Chia seeds are a source of Calcium and Iron, a high source of Fiber, and provide Omega-3. Chia seeds also contain protein, vitamins and minerals and a host of antioxidants!  Besides I like the crunch and how they form a gel around them when the get soaked in something.
