Sunday

~We Gather Together~

When J and I visited the Historic District, in Saint Charles, Missouri just before Christmas, a sign in one of the shops caught my eye. We returned home without the sign, but I couldn't stop thinking about it.

I was reading Susie Harris' Bienvenue and learned she is making signs of all kinds. I contacted Susie and asked if she could do a custom order. She could, indeed! Susie completed the sign and mailed it while we were at the lake. When J picked up the mail, Saturday morning, the package was included in the batch. I am absolutely delighted in Susie Harris' work. The sign reads, "We gather together to ask the Lord's blessing". Perfect for our breakfast room.



Thank you so much Susie!

Fills me with peaceful memories, too, of Thanksgivings as a child. We sang that song a lot when I was growing up ~

I love your sign Pat & the sentiments -abslutely perfect for your breakfast room. I saw a quote in the paper the other day which said " Merci Seigneur pour la belle journee" - Thank you Lord for the beautiful day, and thought how perfect that would be above my "bird watching window" :-)

Hi Pat -
I love your new sign. I think I'd like something like that, maybe just for my fall, harvest and Thanksgiving decorations. Hmmm, maybe I'll have her make one for me with a brown-tone background. Thanks for sharing yours. It's perfect in your breakfast room.

Darlene - Our Creative Life said...

Hi Pat!

The ice storm wasn't as bad here as they made it sound like it was going to be. Yesterday morning it was icy on the roads but later on the roads were fine and this morning they were fine ...just icy patches on bridges & overpasses. I was hoping we were going to wake up to some snow..but no such luck. Hope to get some snow before this winter is over!

Julia @ Hooked on Houses said...

Wow! Susie did a beautiful job with your sign. Love it!
