Making Broken Beautiful | No. 18


December 17, 2015 by Terry

Yet another week gone!

Only seven days left before Christmas!!!!!!

Are YOU ready???

To be honest … I’m really not!  I have a number of things left to do and time seems to be slipping away on me.  I sure hope I can get my act together!

Let’s get right to this week’s favorites shall we?

I swear the best things in life are those things we work hardest for and this desk made over by A Junkchick Life is most certainly one of them!  Talk about Broken Made Beautiful … or shall I say STUNNING!!!  You really must see the mess this desk was in before!  So pretty now and I can see why it would be a keeper … “for now”!  ;0)  (seriously … $40.00?????)


I fell in love with this tablescape that Cheryl Of Ruffles & Rifles created for the staff party at her husband’s company.  Bless her for pouring her heart into this to show her appreciation for the work they do!  She took the time to create a beautiful table to gather at and used her best dishes instead of disposable.  I love that she showed them it was worth her time and effort! To trust you blue wedding goblets at a staff party????   Way to show the love :0) !


Vanessa from Vanessa’s Modern Vintage Home shared her pretty homemade throw pillows!  The whole vignette caught my eye … the chair, the pillow … that little table !  Hmmmmm … Soothing isn’t it!  Well done Vanessa!  You should really go check out the whole post and see all the great photos of her work!

… and Vanessa … I do want to see that dining set you were mentioning! ;)


And lastly …. the Christmas craft that caught my eye this week was by Pillar Box Blue who upcycled thes feather shuttlecocks into beautiful angle wings!

Talk about serious creativity!  Bless your heart for thinking of this!  ( if you don’t know what a shuttlecock is check it out on the blog! )


I hope you all have a great weekend!


 Let’s get to linking shall we?

The other day I let my daughter drive us home after being away. I was absolutely exhausted from life in general. This was the view from my passenger window... a beautiful reminder to slow down and listen to God’s whispers... He’s got this. #listentothewhispers #godsgotthis #bestillandknow #thatstillsmallvoice #heismystrength
So proud of these girls! Congratulations Haileybear and Brittany! #sweetsuccess #allgrownup #newchapter #bestfriends #graduation #thecuratorscollection #soproudofyou

... and she doesn’t think she’s pretty! ??? So proud of this girl! Baby number two is graduating from high school this coming Saturday… Where has the time gone? She has definitely been our “wild card” from the very beginning! So full of energy and always ready to help wherever it is needed. She is ambitious and fun and has an amazing heart! We know she will be successful in anything she does. What a gift she has been to our family! #proud #beautiful #strong #loveofmylife #blessed #loved #congratulations #graduation #bestfriendsforever #modelmaterial
Happy Monday friends! I know I haven’t posted anything for quite some time but as I sit here this evening I feel it’s time to share a bit more of what has been happening for the last few months. Most of you don’t know this but for the last 11 months I have been slowly learning the technical side of my family’s business. For the past 43 years my parents have invested their blood sweat and tears making our family business such a huge success. (@globefootwearltd ) I am privileged and honoured to be able to carry that on for them. 11 months ago I took a leap of faith and left everything I was comfortable with to come and carry on our family heritage. Our children were brave enough to leave their friends and their school in order to support their mom in keeping the family heritage alive. Today I am proud to say that while I still have much to learn, I am happy that we took that leap. It truly is an amazing journey and a hard (at times challenging) one at that… But with God’s grace and strength we will carry through for continued success! God is good! I’m still loving furniture makeovers and when I can, I still enjoy DIY and sharing what I make… But for now… I have to take a step back from that part of my life and focus on what is before me. I hope you will stay, and follow along in my journey. We have a new home where we are and are wanting to put our style mark on it… I know there are a few stencilling projects in our future ;-) I will share more with you soon. You can follow along on my business journey too at @globefootwearltd ❤️😊 #newlife #newfriends #newbusiness #newadventures #shoestore #familybusiness #heritage #myheritage #godisgood #strengh #godsgrace #globefootwearltd
