So honored to get this award again. My second bestowal, this time from Lisa at Alterity.

So….first on my list of loves is Lisa from Alterity!


I just love her blog:
Alterity Art
and her shop:Alterity .
She specializes in antique button jewelry.

She takes great care not to damage the button as she creates her piece so you not only have a stop traffic accessory, but you have an heirloom to pass along as well.

And she does not charge for shipping. Cool.

In her shop description she describes her process of no harm done to any button.

So cute, and so smart.

Ask a collector, these buttons are getting harder and harder to find.

All of the hand work is done by herself, can you imagine tatting?

She can tatt!

I just love the detail on all her bead work.

I snagged some pics from her shop of my favorite pieces to share with you, I hope you enjoy them too and can stop by her shop and blog for a real treat.

Ok, that was my number one love for today for my new blog award list, here are the other six loves:

I love that I got Sees candy and Roses from my husband on Valentines day. Yes, it has already been liberally applied to my hips. There is a reason why I really like this 'holiday'.

I love that I was able to refil my ink cartridge on my printer and didn’t have to drop the dime on a new one.

I love that we combined lunch and dinner together (Linner? Dunch?), so I only had to make 1 meal . yay.

I love that I am not stressing out that 2 of my shops are empty. I probably should be ashamed but I have been busy, so I forgive myself.

I love that I found vintage stuff at the thrift shop,I always count myself lucky to find cool stuff and I love that I dropped a load of stuff off!

I love that its not snowing here nor do we have forest fires or earthquakes. I am really thankful for that today as there are other folks who are in a world of hurt!

Love is strong yet delicate.It can be broken.To truly love is to understand this.To be in love is to respect this.- Stephen Packer

You know you are in love when you see the world in her eyes,and her eyes everywhere in the world.- David Levesque

Love is enough

Love is enough: though the world be a-waning,
And the woods have no voice
but the voice of complaining,
Though the skies be too dark
for dim eyes to discover
The gold-cups and daisies
fair blooming thereunder,
Though the hills be held shadows,
and the sea a dark wonder,
And this day draw a veil
over all deeds passed over,
Yet their hands shall not tremble,
their feet shall not falter:
The void shall not weary,
the fear shall not alter
These lips and these eyes
of the loved and the lover.

William Morris (1834-96)

Two loves, God and C.H. Spurgeon

When a person is dear, everything connected with him becomes dear for his sake.

Thus, so precious is the person of the Lord Jesus in the estimation of all true believers, that everything about Him they consider to be inestimable beyond all price.
"All Thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia," said David, as if the very vestments of the Saviour were so sweetened by His person that he could not but love them.
Certain it is, that there is not a spot where that hallowed foot hath trodden—there is not a word which those blessed lips have uttered—nor a thought which His loving Word has revealed—which is not to us precious beyond all price.
And this is true of the names of Christ—they are all sweet in the believer's ear. Whether He be called the Husband of the Church, her Bridegroom, her Friend; whether He be styled the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world—the King, the Prophet, or the Priest—every title of our Master—Shiloh, Emmanuel, Wonderful, the Mighty Counsellor—every name is like the honeycomb dropping with honey, and luscious are the drops that distil from it.
But if there be one name sweeter than another in the believer's ear, it is the name of Jesus. Jesus! it is the name which moves the harps of heaven to melody. Jesus! the life of all our joys. If there be one name more charming, more precious than another, it is this name.
It is woven into the very warp and woof of our psalmody. Many of our hymns begin with it, and scarcely any, that are good for anything, end without it. It is the sum total of all delights.
It is the music with which the bells of heaven ring; a song in a word; an ocean for comprehension, although a drop for brevity; a matchless oratorio in two syllables; a gathering up of the hallelujahs of eternity in five letters.

C. H. Spurgeon

"Thou shalt call his name Jesus."—Matthew 1:21.
