365 Day Photo Challenge for Saturday - August 14th, 2010 till Friday - August 20th, 2010.

Happy Friday everyone...It's been an interesting morning.  My dad and I had some errands to run and we left at 7a.m. to beat the heat. Well, the car sounded really funny when he turned it on..so we did one errand and then headed over to the dealership where we purchased the car. It turns out the battery was starting to die. So we were able to get it fixed and it was going to cost $20 for labor..but since I also paid for a much-needed oil change...the service manager waived the $20. The car sounds really nice now.

Here are my photos for this week's installment of the 365 day photo challenge. Enjoy :) :)


Saturday ~ August 14th, 2010 A "crepe myrtle" plant near a local church in my neighborhood. It's so beautiful and bright.


Sunday ~ August 15th, 2010 Some lovely handmade soap from my friend Gerry at Gerry's Soap N Stuff. Check her blog button on my sidebar. I styled this soap with this handknit cloth made of sugarcane fibres!!!


Monday ~ August 16th, 2010  Looking at life from a different angle...tea and jewelry :) :)


















Tuesday ~ August 17th, 2010 This was the skies above my home at about 4 p.m...it rained a little bit later that evening!! This photo is completely natural.


Wednesday ~ August 18th, 2010 The only cure for roses, is more roses :) :) :) These are some of the roses from the bouquet my dad brought home!!!


Thursday ~ August 19th, 2010 A very lovely gift of crocheted dishclothes from my friend Miss Antoinette. You can find her blog button on my sidebar..."Practical Simplicity" :) :) :) She made the card, too!!!


Friday ~ August 20th, 2010 This was hanging in the car dealership's waiting room. I snapped a photo of this while my dad and I were waiting for the car to be fixed. This was made by a gentleman by the name of Charles A. Fomby..in memory of 9/11/01. A somber occassion, but I thought this flag of ours is so very beautiful :) :)

I did manage to stop at two yard sales today and found some great things. So I'll be posting about that this week :) :) :)  I hope you all had a great week ...and that this weekend will be a restful one full of good things and lots of fun!!! I'm praying that God will make His presence known in your lives and you'll experience something great this weekend. That's the news from Oregon for this afternoon.  Love and hugs, Heather :)

Wow, Heather,
I love all your pictures and great news about the battery getting fixed and I love the roses!!! How sweet of your dad to bring them home!

About the Bible tag..It was made to sit in an open Bible on the table--that's why it gets squished when the Bible is shut...I hope that explains it better...It's for looks...like a decoration when your Bible is set open on a table.

Also, since you have such wonderful collections, I thought you might want to link them up to the new link party on my I Owe it All to Him blog...I wasn't sure if you knew about it!
Hugs,
Cindy

Hi Heather Sweetie...
I am Ms Country Wings in Phoenix, your newest follower. I was blog hopping tonight and found your beautiful blog home. It is gorgeous.

I love your photo shares today. So beautiful. The roses I could smell the minute I opened the page.

I love the photo of the clouds and the rain storm coming. So beautiful. I don't see much of that here in Phoenix.

I loved your card and dish cloths from your friend. I will be checking out her blog too. I love meeting new friends.

The flag is totally awesome. The gentleman did a magnificent job didn't he? Just so breathtaking.

Thank you for sharing with me this evening. Please stop by and say hi. I would love to have you visit, and I would be so honored if you chose to follow me as well.

Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

Hi Heather, Thanks for visiting my blogs. You always encourage and inspire me...you make me :-).
I love the card Miss Antoinette made for you. Aren't blogging friends great? You really can develop some close relationships via power of the pen, uh, that is, computer. Your roses are glorious and I like your tea and pearls! I really enjoy visiting you, Heather! God bless you and may all your dreams come true! Beth

We had some car issues last year...and we ended up being a single-car family for 8 months, until we finally sold our camper and bought a second car. So, I know that car issues can often be VERY expensive. SO glad that yours were not.

That flag is beautiful. And so are your roses.

Have a lovely day,
Patti
