a little idea from Ana...

had a post about 
a candle holder and a covered cheese platter.
This idea appealed to me 
because I already had all of the components
to create this quick and easy craft.
I was having one of those days...
A day when some girl time was needed.
One of those days that I just wanted to go see Mom.
One of those days that I just wanted to spend time with Mom or my sister...
Someone who really knew me, who understands without words.
My sweet Mother went home to her ultimate healing
in Heaven
three years ago...
 And I couldn't reach my sister.
And my sweet husband tried.  He tried to listen and
take me out for coffee or go for a walk.
I explained to him that I just needed some 'girl time'
to which he responded, "I'll put on a wig"
trying to make me laugh...
So I reached for my vices.
Then creativity.
Thank you, Ana for your lovely blog 
and for giving me such a simple creative outlet for a day.  :)
My little ones came home from school that day 
to a lovely setting on the deck
complete with chocolate fudge brownies
stacked inside the little covered platter on a beautiful base.
It was another day to treasure those
that I do have around me.
Have a good weekend,

"cast all your cares on Him, for He cares for you..."


  1. Beautiful and touching post Deborah~ Hugs, Rachel

  2. Deborah, it turned out so pretty! I saw the same round platter today only cake size at a yard sale, since I have the cover I thought of getting it, but wasn't sure if my glass dome would fit. Now that I see what you did , I'm thinking I should have picked it up, not realizing I can simply paint it all white. I'm seriously wanting a pretty white cake plate/pedestal, I have three glass ones. But have my eye on an enamel one I saw in an online catalog. I know what you mean by girl time, it's been seven years for me, since my mom passed away, and I still wake up some mornings, and think to call her on the phone.

  3. SO beautiful, I love this :) Your children are blessed to have you for a mommy!

  4. Very beautiful and i love this too! I could make one too :)
    Following you back an d adoring your blog!

  5. Hi Deborah,
    I don't know what to say...Thank you for your sweet comments about my blog...It makes me very happy to hear that something I posted helped you a tiny bit on one toughy of a day. Believe me I've had some of those myself so I know what you mean...We are alike in that we both find refuge in prayer and creativity in moments like that. You are always welcomed with open arms over at my blog. I do hope you're feeling better today. Have a wonderful new week. And agin, thank you for all the sweetness.

    Hugs and Kisses,

  6. What a wonderful Mother you must have had. I am so so sorry you had such a hard day. That was so sweet of your husband to say that about the wig and be so sweet. Sometimes girl time is the only thing that will work.
    I hope you are feeling better.
    Have a pretty day,

  7. Your husband sounds like a gem for offering to wear a wig for you, love that. Hope your having a good week. Nice to "meet" you.


  8. What a lovely setting - such a fun place to just sit and chat.

    Thanks for stopping by my last post. We are having a ball with our new baby. Rita

  9. A lovely idea, Deborah. Have a happy Wednesday. xx
