My Friday Finds 

Oh my...... there are no words to sum up this week.... Deep breaths..... It's been a doozie......

Be Still - Fifty-Two felt right from the moment I dreamt it.... After this week...I'm needing it more than ever!! and...I've had so many emails ..... saying 'be still is exactly what I need right now.....' All I can say is.... 'me too'....


Mixed amongst this week's crazy were some lovely finds..... Thank goodness!! 
Like the scarf in photos.... Perfect for pretty pictures....A fabulous vintage feel, don't you think?.... $5.00....and it's HUGE....Love it. I scored 3 different ones at the drugstore the other day.

I found something else ..I've been planning on sharing it all week....but it will have to wait it for another day. Something I've been dreaming of....and there it was.... at Carol's.... a little vintage shop..... right across from our drugstore. It was all I could do to contain myself..... 

Holding onto the blessings...... and breathing deep.... taking time to pause and find little snippets of quiet..... One day at a time.....

Gosh....I can't forget my latest book find..... by Sweet Paul!! It's fantastic... 'charming recipes and kitchen crafts you'll love'..... It's a beautiful book.... very inspired....and the recipes.... YUM......Packed full of goodness!!!

I just had to snap a photo of this week's tulips.... pink ones... again....

Last but not latest IG upload....this lovely egg carton.... a re-discovery.... found before John's illness...I totally forgot about it.... So sweet and simple....Oh and the eggs.... also a rediscovery.... they're not real.... but they are great fakes..... Wishin' I found them before easter... 'smile'....

Update on John

I've had several emails asking about John.... It's been awhile since I've posted anything here.

John's been having such a rough time. Side effects, most likely from the chemo, have caused issues with his kidneys.... His B/P has been scary low this past few weeks. He was close to be admitted into the hospital, but a new med seems to be helping....Things aren't 100% better, and they really aren't sure exactly what's behind the trouble..... but he's slowly improved this past few days..... and best of all he's home. He's sick and tired of feeling sick and tired..... But he marches on....

Prayers and wishes are always appreciated......



Okay friends..... I best sign off..... Until next time...

Happy Friday...... thank you for sharing your lovely Finds...... 

Love & Gratitude.... ♡





Start to Finish is just getting started.... Registration will remain open through the weekend.

The special early bird pricing for Be Still - Fifty Two was scheduled to end this Friday. I've had several requests to keep it open....til the end of the month.... Check it out... here.

I don't wear scarves, but I do love them and have one that is a little lacy...ahhh. So sorry to hear John has been having a rough time of it. So very glad he didn't have to be admitted, and hope the meds continue to help him improve. Will definitely keep you all in my prayers! xo

Will be thinking of you both Kim , you find the best props love the egg thingy !

Good morning :) Wishing you both a happy day and hope John is soon through the woods and back to feeling happy and well. I just love the browny shades in the scarf that compliment the colours in the wood so well. I also want to thank you for S2F, I feel a new door is opening to me and future is bright ahead. I'm also looking forward to Be Still 52 and can't wait for that to start.

Enjoy the weekend,

Thanks so much for the update on John. It's a long road to recovery after cancer treatment. It's a shame that the treatment that saves a life has so many consequences. My prayers for your family continue, and my husband sends well wishes to John, too. It will get better. Love all of your finds today - will definitely check out the book. And I always love when you send a video - as I feel I get to "talk" to you in person. Your egg photo is my favorite today! And the scarf is so lovely . . .

As always, your photos are pure loveliness...I love those fake eggs! I'm sending prayers for John and I'm so sorry he's still struggling to feel 100%.

I love your beautiful images this morning. That egg carton - love! and the eggs too. I'm sorry that John is not feeling well. He deserves to be feeling well by now! I'm sending prayers and wishes for him to recover soon.

I am keeping John and your family in my thoughts and prayers. It is miserable being sick and tired of being sick and tired. I hope he feels better soon.
April 25, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle B
I just love your props! They inspire me to get out and look for new things! Love the egg tray and eggs! Your family is always in my prayers! Hope things are better soon!

always such beautiful words and images over here

For sure I will keep praying for John and for you. Peace...healing....... Thank you for hosting and inspiring all of us!

Thanks for the update, hoping these meds work and life can get back to normal for him.

I have a half started email to you that essentially said although I may not contribute for a while, Be Still is certainly what I'll look forward to this spring and summer as we wrap up chemo and head toward radiation. Then I had wondered how John was recovering and ... POOF ... I see this entry as I check into your site. I am so sorry that his recovery is so difficult. The treatment for leukemia is such a beat down, I would have thought it would be slow and steady improvement. 2 steps forward, 1 step back I suppose. I really think about you 2 daily as you have been such an inspiring example of positive attitude in this difficult world of cancer. It is truly a journey of faith ... In God, in medicine, in your own body's healing power and in each other. Much love to you this week ... You are certainly in my prayers.

Ahhh... I'll be keeping you guys in my prayers... I so hope the meds help. I can only imagine the frustration at feeling not so terrific all the time. Lovely finds.... that egg dish is fabulous. I think i might need to keep a look out for something similar.

Oh Kim, you make the simplest images look so very elegant and easy-to-do. Stunning images, every one.
So sorry John is feeling so bad. I'll keep him AND your family in my prayers. I'm afraid I'd have probably given up long ago. It's just not fair that he's so sick after all he's already been through to be healthy again!

Dear Kim,

My post this week is on Contemplation and I do think that it is you who has insipried me to take a whole new look at where I am and where I want to go. Your post today sums it up perfectly.. wow on that for me today. Thank you for that.

I will pray and have been for you , for John and your family. Not only are you an inspiration in your artisty , your strength to keep on going is unstoppable is the only word I can think of right now.
I spent three days this past month with my father in law at the Cross Cancer Hospital . as he went under test after test . and yes he has cancer ..hes 87 and now on meds. Its starting in the bone and glands. You came to mind a few times. Blessings this weekend.. Hugh Blessings I pray for you all.
Excited for Be Still and Loving my Lightroom :) and have yet to post from Lightroom but I will.
Many Hugs..

I am busy visiting Madrid and posted a link to an earlier post, lovely watches, there have been so many lovely finds this week, I apologize for not posting a new post today, but we have been busy exploring, barely having time for posts! I should learn to plan ahead since I know they are coming.
we are wishing John well,
April 26, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterjmeyersforeman
Great friday finds... I especially like that unusual egg holder! So sorry to hear that John is having a rough time. Fighting cancer is such a physical challenge, but more an emotional roller coaster for the person going though it and the ones sitting by their side.
Sending thoughts and prayers your way!
April 26, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSusan
Kim....I'm behind in my photos, especially. But I never skip your posts. They keep me centered....they're full of the things I treasure. Thank you. Keeping you and John in my prayers.....xo
