My mother-in-law, Mildred was rushed to the hospital last Sunday after suddenly becoming ill. She's been there quite a few times in her life and has always pulled through so we were all assuming she would this time too. Unfortunately, after surviving numerous surgeries over the years that I've known her on her heart, lungs, shoulder, etc. she was taken down by a simple UTI. I had no idea how dangerous those can be in older people. They can quickly turn septic. We watched her pass on to be with Jesus Wednesday Sept. 2, 2009. We were in the process of planning her surprise 75th birthday party. Her birthday is Sept. 27th. She was a very sweet woman who never met a stranger. She loved The Lord, her family, her friends and her Tiffany lamps, porcelain dolls, Hummels, Boyd's bears, the Colts, her jewelry and most of all she loved to talk and tell stories of the past. We buried Mil on Sept. 5th which is the same day Angie's wedding will be on next year. We are going to have to think of a special way of honoring her on that day. She will be greatly missed. Thanks to all who sent their condolences.
Hi there! My name is Sandy and I live in Indianapolis. Thanks for visiting my little blog. I started this when my oldest daughter (I have two) got engaged because she was planning her wedding and it was driving me crazy that I didn't get to be the one deciding on the decor. At my own wedding 28 years ago I don't remember really caring anything about the decor. My mom planned most of it. Anyway this became an outlet for me and my creative juices. I have decorated a few weddings and 50TH anniversary parties, birthdays (most of which I never even got any copies of the pictures for because I didn't have a camera or a computer or a blog or even know what a blog was for that matter) and I have always decorated for the birthdays of the kids I take care of. I still don't have a working camera so it's been very frustrating having to rely on others to take pictures and actually send them to me. They rarely deliver. I would love to actually get to do a party where the budget was BIG. Seems I am always doing everything for free for friends and family so the party business so far is costing me money. If you'd like to pay someone to do yours, most likely I am available and would love to help. If you are an event designer and need help, look no further. I've collected a lot of vases and decor over time and would be happy to sell or rent any of it. If you see it on my blog and want to use it or need help with your party just leave me a comment and I will be happy to get back with you.

The Gift of Salvation
Ephesians 2:8-9 (New International Version)
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9not by works, so that no one can boast.
