Rebecca at A Gathering of Thoughts

I’m a happily married woman of many years to the most amazing man. Mother of two grown children and Nana to one PERFECT little girl! I love decorative arts of all kinds~ especially those that implement vintage textiles. It is easy for me to get lost in my work when using the fabulous old finds made long ago with loving hands. Mastering the art of painting roses is my passion. I love to transform aging treasures and refashion and re-purpose them for use in shabby cottage chic homes of today. I am a seamstress and a sewer of fine things. Always on a never ending quest to hunt down snippets of old lace and ribbon. I rarely miss a day of working with thread and needle, paint brush and pallet. I love to read about successful women and those who lovingly manage both a career and family. Learning more about Jesus and His unwavering love for me is a daily focus. I enjoy Bible Study and all things Christ-centered. It has been my faith in a loving God, the Most High, who has sustained me throughout my life. 

 Sweet Vicki  has an ongoing Blog party at her site Change in a Bottle. These Cierra Ashley frangrace fans are the most popular way to make your home smell fresh and below Vicki explains how you can be the proud owner of one these beautiful bottles.
