Wishing everyone a lovely Sunday and a happy Halloween!
I took this picture at church this morning, I just love this old window... it's always decorated for the different Holidays, and special occasions, this morning it reminded me of Fall and that Halloween is today! (you see I'm even thinking of decorating at church). This window was in the first church that was built here in 1906 when the church was first founded. My husbands family on his Dad's side has belonged to this little country church for generations, and my husband has gone there all of his life. My husbands great great grandfather was one of the founders of the church!
Oh, and by the way when I started going to church here I ask one of the ladies in the church if they had any of the old windows left because I just loved the one they had up and thought it was so cool that it came from the old chuch, and much to my surprize they actually had 1 left and gave it to me. It now resides in our Dinning room, I had a mirror put in it and I will cherish it always!
The church hired a lady named Sadie Thomas to sketch in pencil the old church and the new church, she did a fabulous job. If you notice you can see the old church window in the background framing the churches! I have a signed sketch of the church from this artist with her signature and is numbered 3 of 150. What I'm showing here is just a little bulletin, it's not as clear as my sketch! I hope I haven't bored you to much with my bit of our family history!
This is another thing that I think is so pretty at church, I'm not sure of the date of the silver,but I've been told it was in the first church... so their really old pieces!!!
Oh, now as for Halloween I can't wait to see the grand kids tonight in their little costumes, especially the little one, it being her first Halloween, she's going to be a Bumble Bee, and there will definitely be pictures coming soon!!!
