Need Advice!

Hey guys!
I need some advice regarding my blogspot).
I am at my limit for pictures and now have to pay for additional space. Has anyone out there done this and if so what is a good amount to purchase?
Sorry I don't have a picture with this post but I can't until I pay:).
I also want to thank all of you in blogland who have left such kind words of support regarding my dad's death.
Your warm wishes and prayers have been felt and I thank you all!
May God Bless each of you!

Morning Sunlight

Hello to all my blogland buddies!
I missed you bunches!!!
This will be something of a short post as Blogger won't let me publish any more pictures until I increase my pic stash or something like that. For those of you wo are familiar with my computer talents, or lack thereof, this may take a while:).
We are still unpacking so it may be a bit longer before I can visit all of you but I will be by for a visit as soon as possible!
I love you all and thank you for your wonderful comments and support as we move into Faith Cottage!
Sorry I can't get any more pictures posted right now but here are some early morning pics at Faith Cottage:).
The morning sunlight streams through the bedroom curtains.
An old Eastlake mirror reflects sunbeams as they peek through the front door windows.
Silver sparkles in the early morning sunrays.
Crystals shine like diamonds as the sun streams through lace panels.
Shadows glimmer against antique lace.
Even a small bear (this little lady was handmade by Catherine at Bumpkin Bears:) enjoys the early morning light.
But it's not just the bear enjoying it,
Kramer is determined to catch the sun rays!
Or maybe he'll just enjoy the birds singing outside the window.
Until something inside catches his attention!
Of course most cats prefer...
to nap in the sun:).
Calvin prefers to pose for pictures while...
Kasey snoozes on the floor.
Lizzy watches for any sign of movement just beyond the front door.
This flying pig picture now hangs in our media room but used to hang in the infamous bathroom (see the bathtub diaries for more on that subject).
It is a reminder from my dad (you all know him as 'Michael823' from his comments on my blog) to not take life too seriously:).
I'm gonna miss you dad.

Kramer Chronicles-Moving

Hey, it's me, Kramer.
We're moving.
Can you tell how thrilled I am about this?
Yeah, I'm thrilled alright.
Now I have to pack which inteferes greatly with my nap time.
Where to begin...
I suppose I'll start here.
Then again maybe I should rest before taking on all of this work.
Let's pack this toy here...
and my favorite toy from my auntie Jodie...
goes here.
This is a very special toy (because it's from my auntie Jodie) so I need to make sure it's secure.
Now for the rest of my toys...
Now where did I leave my orange mouse-on-the-fishing-pole toy?
There it is!
Whew, that was hard work.
Time for a break.
It's more comfortable over here not to mention I can watch Lizzy help with the moving.
Here's Lizzy helping move a box.
This is the box before...
and this is the box after.
Hmmm...I seem to be surrounded.
I better move before I get packed!

Thanks for stopping by.

My mom misses everyone in blogland and will be back visiting with all of you once the move is complete:).

Sneak peaks of Faith Cottage coming soon:).

Sunday Wisdom

"For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness;
and to goodness, knowledge;
and to knowledge, self-control;
and to self-control, perseverance;
and to perseverance, godliness;
and to godliness, brotherly kindness;
and to brotherly kindness, love.
For if you posess these qualities in increasing measure,
they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge
of our Lord Jesus Christ."
2 Peter 1: 5-8, NIV

Sunday Wisdom

"For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed,
a righteousness that is by faith from first to last,
just as it is written:
"The righteous will live by faith."

Fairy Tale-Part III

Welcome back to Faith Cottage!
Come inside for a tour:).
Although the original ornamentation and fretwork remain on the exterior, the interior has been remodeled.
The floors in the living room are Brazilian cherry (Pergo).
An archway on the other side of the room leads to the kitchen.
White cabinetry with blue/tan tile flooring and blue Corian countertops (working with the blue will be a challenge but I feel up to the task:).
The door to the left is a bathroom while the door to the right leads to the second bedroom.
The largest bedroom (master) is at the front of the house off the living room.
This is the third bedroom at the back of the house (yeah, I know, I'm going back and forth but it's a small house so you shouldn't get lost:).
This is the second bedroom (off the kitchen).
A small bathroom off the kitchen boasts a standing shower to the left.
This is the main bathroom at the back of the house.
If you've been to my Bathtub Diary blog ( I know what you're thinking-
where's the claw foot tub?
That's another story that will be addressed at a future date:).
And finally, this is the sun porch off the kitchen.
Well there it is, Faith Cottage.
Although she might seem a bit plain now there is much beauty in her future as we begin working on bringing this Victorian cottage to her full potential.
Stay tuned:).
"And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love.
But the greatest of these is love."
1 Corinthians 13:13, NIV
