This picture makes me smile because Sharks DO look a lot friendlier without sharp teeth! When I saw this picture, it actually made me laugh out loud.. i wish I could see a shark like this in real life! haha It also made me smile because my son is obsessed with sharks, so it made me think of him and how much he is going to laugh when I show this picture :) #FABsmile
Greed May Start Small Greed If Not curbed, Can Grow Rapidly & Overcome A Person Israel has sinned. They have violated my covenant that I commanded them to keep. They took some of what was devoted to destruction, stealing it and secretly putting it among their own possessions. When I saw among the spoil a good-looking official garment from Shi′nar and 200 shekels of silver and one gold bar weighing 50 shekels, I desired them, so I took them. They are now hidden in the ground inside my tent, with the money underneath.” Joshua and all Israel with him then took A′chan the son of Ze′rah, the silver, the official garment, and the bar of gold, along with his sons, his daughters, his bull, his donkey, his flock, his tent, and everything that was his, and they brought them up to the Valley of A′chor. Joshua said: “Why have you brought disaster upon us? Jehovah will bring disaster upon you on this day.” With that all Israel stoned him, after which they burned them with fire. Thus they stoned all of them. (Joshua 7:11, 21, 24, 25)

" Gary held out a dress. 'try this' he said flatly. I looked at it then at him. 'why?' I asked raising an eyebrow. He shrugged. I took it a put it on. The dress came down to my knees. It was soft and silky. I stepped out. I could see then hint of a blush on Gary's face as I stepped out 'So?' I asked. 'Beautiful' he breathed"
I think the finish on this piece makes it look expensive yet rustic.

“I took one look at James on the stretcher and burst into tears. I can’t even imagine how it would feel to lose him. We have done everything together since birth and to see my brother laying down on a stretcher pretending to be dead just killed me inside. After James got up and I gave him a huge hug, David said you did great, it was very believable. Then I told him I just thought of it as me and James not Fred and George.” — Oliver Phelps on

I showed you yesterday how we built a bed for B and then improved upon some issues such as extending the height. That's not all I was busy with this weekend. I also re-upholstered his headboard. I bought some real upholstery fabric in Denmark the year before last. It is strikingly similar in color to the fabric that I put on his old headboard that you see here. There is a huge difference in the texture, quality and the new fabric has backing on it that makes it really sturdy. Most of all I ...
"It was the most haunting thing I've ever seen. It started as a small cloud over the volcano, then grew into a disk, then expanded to cover the whole sky, which is when it started to look like this. Then ash started to fall and it was dark in the middle of the day. This was in 1986. My mom took the photos and I scanned them.
Gymbo the clown cake - I made this cake for a friend's son who was having a birthday party at Gymboree. It was the biggest cake I've ever made: a 3-layer 12x18 cake. The baking took forever and so did the fondant Gymbo, but the rest was easy. To make Gymbo, I printed out a picture of him I found online, then cut it up by color (if that makes sense!). I traced the pieces onto the different colors of fondant, cut them out, and then pieced Gymbo
took an old window and painted the back using paint and my star stencil. I used both house paint and craft paint that I had on hand. I added a touch of brown to my white because I wanted a more distressed look on my old window. I started with the white, wait for it all to dry then paint blue over the white stars in one thick stroke. Do another coat when it drys if desired. Then paint the red stripes
This makes me think of my grandma who always had her quilts folded and stacked in a cabinet. We would get them out and look at them almost everytime I went to visit...love it!

Celine: I like to feel his eyes on me when I look away. - Before Sunrise (1995) Jesse: I'm serious. I think I wrote it, in a way, to try to find you. - Before Sunset (2004) Jesse: If you want love, then this is it. This is real life. It's not perfect but it's real. - Before Midnight (2013)
Photographer: " Earlier this year, I posted a different shot of this- in full color and from a very different angle. I took this photo at the Japanese National Theater when we went for a 2012 New Year’s kabuki performance. Believe it or not, this statue of Onoe Kikugo VI- is made of wood on display in a glass case in the “big” theater’s lobby.” Text and image by photographer Rekisha no tabi of Flickr

I've loved this quote since the first time I saw it. I stumbled upon it when I was going through my divorce. It's one of those quotes that really makes you stop and think.
