Good Morning dear friends, This week Cottage Style is having another party, this time it's Cottage-What-Not Party, doesn't that sound like fun? To see what my other friends are showing just click on the Party Button on my side bar. I have decided to show my combined collection of rosaries and angels.
This is one of my very pretty rosaries.
A lovely gift from a friend in Ireland.
One of mom's rosaries. This Madonna lights up and looks so beautiful in the dark. I added a small button pic of my parents wedding.
She preferred to pray with this one at night because it glows in the dark.
My aunt Rita gave me this one, which of course I treasure.
Still have this one in the original box, a gift from my daughter Julie. It's stunning
and it's from Italy.She just returned from Italy and said she brought me a wooden Saint Anthony, can't wait to see it.
My husband's vintage rosary and prayer book. (He wanted me to include it)
My daughter Julie brought me this wooden rosary from Greece on one of her trips, she always brings me something from there, they go often.
This is one of my treasures. My grand daughter Kelly brought me Saint Anthony from Spain and her mother, my daughter Judy, made the rosary for me for my birthday. Garnet beads since garnet is the birth stone of January. Judy makes beautiful rosaries.
These little angels are vintage and belonged to my grand mother Rosenda.
I love angels and have many more angels not displayed today perhaps on another post. Don't you think this month of April just flew by? Much too fast for me, however, May is here and what a lovely month it is. We have Mother's Day and our wedding anniversary. One of my daughters sent me this pic of Faith from Source.

My husband is always looking for things he can photograph. As you know I have posted his City Clocks and Old Houses all taken from the car. While sitting here in his wheel chair in our office, he overlooks our patio, here he has his computer, his flat screen tv set and from the sliding glass door he sees the patio all day and he enjoys it, says it's almost like being outside....

Dear Friends, "Find what you love to do and you will never work another day in your life"...Come join us at our craft rooms and see what everyone is working on. It's so much fun to share with our friends our love of creating what we love to make. I have always enjoyed making and creating since a child and with mom and grandma Rosenda around all the time making things it came easy. So now here we are, this is the section of my studio where I do my sewing. Right now making sachet pillows with lavender inside, I make only inspirational sachets. As some of you know I take care of my hubby who had a stroke and so my time is very limited to sew and do more of what I enjoy but God strengthens us.

Welcome friends to our Garden Party. Click on my side bar "Garden Party" to see others that are showing their gardens today. I wish I had more land to have a larger garden but living in the city doesn't give us that pleasure. However, we do our best with what we have. Enjoy this little visit, this isn't all of my garden just part of it.

Hello Dear Ones, Well I just received these magnificent pictures from my husband's cousin in Oregon so decided to post them instead of what I had ready. This is so rare to see a peacock fly. Doesn't it look like a phoenix in flight from a fairy tale? It's absolutely beautiful.
