A Man Condemned to Die on Calvary

"Down the Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem that day
The soldiers tried to clear the narrow street
But the crowd pressed in to see
A Man condemned to die on Calvary
He was bleeding from a beating, there were stripes upon His back
And He wore a crown of thorns upon His head
And He bore with every step
The scorn of those who cried out for His death

Down the Via Dolorosa called the way of suffering
Like a lamb came the Messiah, Christ the King,
But He chose to walk that road out of
His love for you and me.
Down the Via Dolorosa, all the way to Calvary.

The blood that would cleanse the souls of all men
Made its way through the heart of Jerusalem."

Have a very blessed Easter weekend!



The Revival of Mannequins & I've Been Featured

Recently I attended a party featuring mannequins. (You can read about the story, here! )

I dressed my vintage manny, Miss Lucy Louise, in vintage white, flowers and pearls!

(Oh yeah I had several "looks" as people 
drove by and wondered just what or who was on the boat dock!! haha)

It was so fun to design a costume for Miss Lucy Louise! Now she displays the numerous pearl necklaces that I've acquired either from family or estate sale-ing!  It is amazing how jewelry is always available at these sales!  And talk about reasonable! So many strands of costume pearls...and of course the real deals too!!

Then my friend and me were shopping a local antique mall and spotted several mannequins.  All were old and just a tad eccentric...

There's the 'red hat' lady...

And the 'masked' head...

I can't leave out the 'painted face'...

And the 'fur wearing grand lady'...

The 'red coat lady' not to be confused with the British soldiers during the American Revolution...

What about you?  Have you jumped on the manny wagon?

And I was featured...Share Your Cup with Jann  for my story on Made in the USA, Toys !
 Thank you Jann!
Go visit with her and check out the wonderfulness of her blog!

See ya down the junkin' road!!

Did you see the awards show for country music?  It is getting so that about every other week there's a new award show...showcasing whatever is in for that week!!

I'm sharing today a few of the fashions...Red Carpet...

Have you made your choices?  Is it a 'do' or a 'don't'??  Did the stars 'hit' or 'miss'?? 

Lots of color, style, sparkly, bling...and oh yes some pretty good music too!
