"Delightful" ribbon

As promised! Here's a pic of the gorgeous ribbon I found today. Love it!!!

You've got the look!

I am officially in love with Shabby blogs. Being a shabby girl myself I love all of the wonderful muted colors, distressed edges, vintage designs and the all together delightful vision that is "shabby".

So, what do you think? I adore yellow and this one jumped out at me. I'll probably be changing my look a lot because it's just so fun....and I can! How cool is that? For now, I'm in a sunny mood and this is the look to launch the Penny Bennett blog. I spent the day at the pool with my Mom, Sister and Niece and the sun was indeed delightful.!

Then we went shopping and I found the most delightful white gauze ribbon hand-stamped with the word....are you ready?...."delightful". Well, of course I had to have it! Can't wait to wrap it around the perfect gift. I may just have to make some of my own I think. What a fabulous idea. I'll have to take a picture and show it to you later.

Till then... have a wonderful night.

Designed to get the word out!

I did it! I finally did it!!

I've been wanting to start a blog for some time now, but somehow the timing wasn't quite right. I love to read and journal my thoughts so a blog seemed a natural leap from the printed page. I'm an old-fashioned girl so I admit I've fought the urge to blog because I'm so in love with books and paper and gorgeous pens! I have no desire to read a book online. I want to hold it in my hand and feel the weight of it, ya know.

My husband bought me 6 gorgeous leather journals for Christmas last year... assorted colors. I screamed with delight. I chose the chocolate brown one for my worship journal (where I take all most notes every Sunday) because it matches my Bible. A silly little thing I suppose but it brings me great joy when I pull it out of my Bible Tote on Sunday morning to capture whatever profound thoughts, ideas and inspirations come my way.

I love to read!! And, the Bible is hands-down my favorite book. I sometimes feel absolutely overwhelmed with the desire to share some nugget of wisdom I just discovered in my reading. And, now I have a place to share it! I'm also pleased to be able to share my Bible Totes (Penny Bennett Totes) with you. I'm looking forward to keeping you posted on new designs as well as offering "fun and fashionable" tips on how to get the Word out. It's all part of the Penny Bennett blog and I can't wait to get started.

But, first I need to do some construction. I don't know how to do all that blog design stuff yet so please be patient with me. It's going to be beautiful!

See you soon!
