The Passing Of My Father-In-Law

The past month or so has been very difficult. My 91 yr old father-in-law just started wearing down. I think since his wife passed in 2007 he has been so sad that he had trouble finding a reason to continue. One infection after another would happen at the nursing home. A trip to the hospital...tests, more and more medicine. He was transfered to Heartland Hospice in Hockessin, De a week ago this past Monday. On 1/20/2011 he passed into the arms of the angels. Although it was very hard because we all love him so...we could see how much work it was for him to pass. He was so weary of it all. I will always miss him, he was my last parent in this world but am thankful that God will make sure there is no more suffering for Dad. He was a very good and loving man. After the services are done I am going to try to slowly get back to my creative side...need to create some lovely pieces to pull me back to the land of the living. Sometimes that adjustment is hard to do but God does not want us to worry about those that are safe with Him now. I want to thank all my friends for all their kindness during this hard time. God Bless You All.  With much love, Becky

The Start of a New Year

Well, the Holidays are over and the New Year has begun...always exciting to think of what it will bring..what changes are in store. I have been wanting to do more work with lace. Although, I am not much of a sewer, I may have to do some learning because visions of lacy delights keep dancing through my mind. I put aside a few articles of clothing to see if I could repurpose them with some of my vintage lace...everytime I see a piece of vintage lace lately it has just moved me.
Also, I have visited so many beautiful blogs lately with giveaways to just die for...lace, vintage buttons, and whatnots. I would love to do one here in the near future as soon as I can figure out how to work it all out. I am still rather new to this blogging business. If anyone out there in blog world would like to send me some info on how I could set up a giveaway with one of those random number generators I would be so thankful. I just love the idea of bundling up some goodies to give to someone. There is nothing like receiving a package of vintage goodies in the hopefully before too long I will learn how to do it and have a giveaway of my own here at Becky's Blogging Place. Hope you all had a wonderful Holiday season that was very satisfying for you. Wishing you all a Happy New Year full of vintage glory and creative fun!
