These are the ramblings of an eclectic and whimsical homeschooling family of eight... a little peek, if you will, inside the daily dawdlings and habits of my active and delightful family seeking to please the Lord in all we do! Hopefully our thoughts, observations, and activities will challenge you, inspire you, tickle you, cheer you, and let you know you are not the only one!

Preparations! Preparations!

Our preparations for baby Noah are nearly complete! There have been many home renovation projects that I wanted to complete before he arrived... and many more that I still want to do but they won't be done before the 'Big Day'. One of the things that I hoped to find was a wonderful old world map to hang in our newly refurbished boys' room. I wanted it to be big... I wanted it to be antiqued... and I wanted it to look regal. In a nutshell, I wanted it to be befitting the room of two noble sons!

I have been looking for this perfect painting at yard sales all summer. When you have something very specific to find, it is often hard to locate at a yard sale. But, the Lord always provides for us and so we continued to look and wait for the Lord's provision.

Here it is!!
It didn't come from a yard sale at all. In fact, while in our local craft store, Nana found this poster on a clearance rack for $3.99. It was perfect! But, it was also HUGE (40" x 27 1/2") and to have it framed would have been in the hundreds of dollars. I knew that Mr. P would come to the rescue with is creativity and his uncanny knack of making something out of nothing. He did not disappoint! With scraps from his workshop, Mr. P designed, built, painted and antiqued this beautiful frame!! It is a work of art!! He didn't have a piece of glass that big so he used plexiglass. It is regal! It is elegant! It fits right in the room in just the way I had imagined it would!

Magnificent!! Mr. P is a genius!! But, you knew that about him already, didn't you?
