Sundays on Silverado #78

Life Lately

We squeezed in an afternoon of antique store browsing–the first in quite a long time.

It’s one of my favorite ways to relax and take my mind off everything. I mean, really, it’s practically like traveling back in time, right?

I came home with some really fun finds that you will see in upcoming posts… a lot of “trash to treasure” upcycling going on around here lately. Stay tuned.

One thing that was already a treasure, was this vintage Velveteen Rabbit book I found. I brought it right home and popped it into my Vintage Magazine Rack that I gave a makeover to recently.

I can’t wait to read it to sweet baby Evie.

Speaking of sweet Evelynn, a “Life Lately” post wouldn’t be complete without an update, and a few recent photos of our grandbaby.

This tiny fighter turned two months old this week.

She is a true miracle in progress.

Have you heard about Beads of Courage?

Each tiny bead on this chain represents a piece of Evie’s journey so far. Injections, transfusions, therapies, treatments, blood draws, medicines, hospital stays, scans, surgeries…

Every Beads of Courage® program integrates the use of beads, the earliest art form known to humans, as visible and tangible symbols of human experiences that need and deserve to be expressed. 

Every time a bead is given, courage is honored, resilience is strengthened, and the experience of human caring is affirmed.

At only 8 weeks old, our baby warrior has already experienced more than many of us will know in a lifetime.

She’s made so much progress, more than doctors told us to expect in the beginning. So many prayers have been answered, but I invite you to continue to pray along with us for little Evelynn.

More beads continue to be added to her chain, and will be for the foreseeable future. We continue to pray for strength, comfort, and healing.

“… I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,” declares the Lord.–Jeremiah 30:17

In Case You Missed It…

This week was another fun Pinterest Challenge, where our task was to create a Valentine cloche.

I used only things I had in my crafting or decorating stash, and came up with FIVE different displays. You can check them all out HERE, plus a dozen more versions by my blogging buddies.


You guys, last week we had the biggest party in the history of Sundays on Silverado!

If you haven’t taken some time to look over all the shares from last week’s party, I suggest you pour yourself a hot cup of coffee and get cozy while you browse, because SoS#77 is filled to the brim with amazing ideas and inspiration!

And if you’re new here, welcome! We had so many first-time linkers who joined us, and I loved seeing all the new ideas.

I hope you’ll keep coming back to share again with us, because that’s what makes link parties so fun, right?!

The Weekly Features!

Elizabeth from Pinecones and Acorns, and Alea from Premeditated Leftovers show us how to make adorable heart-shaped treats, just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Organized Island‘s Raquel shares the prettiest Valentine popcorn. The cute little bear sugar cookies are from Melissa at Everyday Savvy.

I love a good charcuterie board, so these Valentine versions from Wanderlust and Wellness, and My Home and Travels look so fun to make!
