Life Lines Here & Friday Faves

Click on the flowers for more faves!

I love to see women expressing themselves in a creative way. My friend, Cheryl, put together a beautiful Aloha Tablescape at the school where I teach. It was Teacher Appreciation week. Cheryl is on the left in the short sleeves. Her sweet daughter is the young girl in turquoise. Thanks, Cheryl, for a feast for the eyes as well as the stomache! I had a bagel & fruit on a skewer!


Two Of Cheryl's Baby Shower Creations

It's a diaper bag. It's a baby dress & shoes.

It's a CAKE!
Complete with "diapers" and an extra set of clothing...

My friend Natalie, cake decorator extraordinaire, created this beautiful cake. Even the "dress" and "shoes" are the cake!

Creative women everywhere...I admire you. I appreciate you. I am your friend!

The gorgeous evening sky I beheld last night as I left our church, site of the baby shower.

My God and my Creator...I am in awe of You & Your Creation!
