A Little Corner

Hello, Dear Ones! Hope all is well with you all. 
I wanted to share a little corner in my house at the end of my piano with you today.

 You know I love my cross stitch pieces and I framed "Jesus Is His Name" and hung it on this wall along with a couple of other prints I got from Etsy many years ago.
I know I've shown this to you before but this is a good snap of the names of Jesus! How I love this!
 
Oh, I just love how it turned out with the double mats of blue and cream. This isn't a very clear picture of it. I think I was excited when I took it. But when I'm sitting at my piano I'm facingt this wall and it makes me happy. I framed it myself and think I probably saved Mr. Precious a lot of money! I keep telling him how talented I am! ;)
Here is one of the little Etsy prints - Amazing Grace. It is a copy of the music from a hymn book and then over the music is the hand painted title and flowers. This one is hung on top of my cross stitched piece and the one hung below is Great Is Thy Faithfulness. Two of my favorite old hymns.

Okay. Can we talk? Today when I tried to start a new blog post I was taken to an area I didn't recognize. It was telling me it was a 'new design thingy'. I didn't like it. I couldn't even see where to start a new post. Everything looked differently. So I got on the internet and found out how to revert to the classic blogger look but it said eventually in a few months everyone would have the new blogger thingy. 

So...I guess I'm saying if the new blogger thingy seems too different I just may not continue to blog. I have kinda lost my blogging gene. I do try now to post once a week now but have almost stopped blogging a couple of times. I really don't want to stop but if Google or Blogger makes it hard for me...I just may do that.

Anyway, are any of y'all seeing this too? If you've conquered it could you tell me where you start a new blog post? I went to "New Post" at the top right hand side of my blog and it took me to this new look and I couldn't find it.

Oh, well. I know things change but sometimes I just want some things to stay the same.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~
 
Please Remember Me
 
 Two sad faces tell the story
Heard so many times before
He is leaving she is staying
Neither of them know what for
There's no laughter there's no crying
There is love there's no denying
Differences led to goodbye and please remember me
And she said-I've got phone and a mail box
A front door that's unlocked
A faith in the feelings there'll be someone you forgot
True I'm gonna miss you, true I'm gonna need you
You know I'm not the one to worry
Oh but I heard the weather report
It says it's gonna be cold and lonely

So honey won't you please remember me
I'm the one that loves you
Please remember me
I'm the one that cares
Please remember me
I'll be thinking of you
And should you ever decide you wanna come home
I'll be there

This is like that old love story
Those who've lost love know it's true
She's sitting by a window waiting
He's sitting somewhere wonderin' what to do
They know they should be together
They know they should reconcile
He knew he would regret her saying please remember me
She said-You've got a home and a warm bed
A roof over your head
A place in my heart for someone i'll never forget
True I'm gonna miss you, true I'm gonna need you
You know I'm not the one to worry
Oh but I heard the weather report
It says it's gonna be cold and lonely

So honey won't you please remember me
I'm the one that loves you
Please remember me
I'm the one that cares
Please remember me
I'll be thinking of you
And should you ever decide you wanna come home
I'll be there

Oh lover won't you please remember
Won't you please remember me
Ooh lover won't you please remember
Won't you please remember me 
~ sung by Cliff Richard

  5. Dear Shelia,
    I will remember you. . .and Note Songs. . .
    should you decide not to continue on in The Land of Blog!
    I understand your frustration, also!
    I took my computer in to have Windows 10 installed. . .
    when I brought it home I can NO longer log into my administration page.
    Talk about frustrated!!!
    That's why you haven't seen any post from me!
    Putting all that aside, Your prints are ever so lovely. . .
    and meaningful, whatever befalls us!
    Thank you for this inspiring post!
    Pat

  6. You are so truly talented. What a wonderful bit of wall art you get to see as you are playing your music on your piano. ♥ ♫ ♪ ♫

  7. Oh your wall looks beautiful. Just love your style. I know how you feel about blogging. And I feel the same, if they keep changing things I will just stop. I love blogging "the old way". I have met some fantastic people through blogging, but it has changed. And I have changed. My blogging style is still the "old" way.
    But I just hate the thoughts of completely closing my blog. I hope you stay with it. I will miss you if you stop your blog. Hugs, Karie

  9. I love your piano corner. It would be so sweet to sit there and chat with you and play together. I haven't blogged in awhile and have been thinking of starting again. I heard there is a new blogger 'thing-y'. Will have to check it out and see what that's all about.
