Hello, I'm Mrs. Vintagesouthern and I'm an addict

I am addicted to Pinterest. I just keep finding things I want to do like this beautiful bench

made from a vintage dresser. Betterafterblogspot did such an awesome job.


a dishwasher face lift

like Saving4six did. She has a wonderful step by step tutorial. I'm going to need 
help on this one from Mr. Vintage and since we've just finished doing bead
board on the cabinets at the condo I think it might be wise to wait a little while
to bring it up.

I did try this one already

I chose the dry version rather than having to store the liquid. It is so
economical, pennies a load, does not have all of those horrid chemicals and it lasts

Pinterest also adds to your life expectancy!  That's right. I will have to live
to be 110 to get all of the projects done I have found.

So are you addicted too? What have you tried lately, I would love to hear

Thanks for dropping by and y'all come back.

A peek into Israel

Ever been on a tour boat on the Sea of Galilee?   Mr. Vintagesouthern was fortunate enough to visit Israel and agreed to share some of his photos.

Blue Monday -Haint Blue


Growing up and living in the south I have been exposed to many local traditions and superstitions.

I wouldn't trade it for the world. I think it just adds to the southern charm. 

One of my favorite superstitions centers around the color "haint blue."

According to tradition the color haint blue has magical powers and if painted on the exterior of the

house it will keep ghosts and evil spirits from entering. To this day the color appears on ceilings, shutters,

porches and doors from Charleston, S.C. to Louisiana.

Thanks for dropping by for a visit and y'all come back!

Please join me at Blue Monday for more beautiful blues.

Spiritual Sunday

I am so excited that spring is here. It is always  a reminder for me that the earth is renewed and that life goes on. I have spent some difficult times in the valley with an aging mom and various illnesses with family members. Although it has not been easy, I have been comforted by his promise

"I am with you always even unto the end of the world." Matthew 28:20

As I look back over the last few months I can see his hand in so many events.It is often so hard to let go and let God but when we do, he is always faithful to take care of us.
Thanks so much for your prayers and emails. I have not had much time for blogging or comments but I have come here often for strength and support.Your posts have been uplifting and always just what I needed to read at that time. 
Isn't God good?
