The potato found in the shape of a heart.

Warm coffee and refreshing iced coffee.

Beautiful colors for the covers of our upcoming products.


Boiling grapes to be turned into jelly.

A sleepy dog who can be very cuddly.

The recipe holder my dear mother made for me.

Lemon Scones

Lemon Scones made gluten-free. It was so nice to have scones again!

Fellowship with very precious friends.

A completed project sent to the printers . . . and a few more well on their way.

This is the day that the LORD has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.

—Psalm 118:24

    Emily Rose,
    What delicious-looking lemon scones! Are you going to share the recipe?
    I have a question…what do you use for the backdrop of your photo shoots when photographing small items? A sheet? Fabric? Poster board? I usually use natural settings (such as grass outside), but I would love to experiment indoors too! =)
    I can’t wait to hear what your special project is, although I do have a good idea. =)
    May the Lord bless you this day!
    In Christ’s love,

    Did you find that heart-shaped potato in your garden? What a cute picture! The scones or whatever they are make my mouth water!!! The grapes look like blueberries!! Whoever took those pics is a expert photographer. :)

    Pauline, thank you! I enjoyed taking the photographs, as food is my favorite thing to capture with the camera. The potato actually came from a store-bought bag of potatoes. I hope you’re having a lovely day! Blessings, Emily Rose

    Emily, I am just catching up on your last few posts (hurray, we have Internet in our home now!). You are wise to find joy in the small blessings and beauties of day to day living and you have captured them beautifully with your camera. Your fellowship is a great blessing to us, too. (And, if one makes one’s guests bring their own food AND clean up the kitchen afterward, it makes for very easy hospitality.) :-P
