due diligence.

this is my own brand of public information announcement ::: cuz i've had it up to here {reaching as high as my 5'2" frame can reach} with faith based or secular programs not following the letter of the law. just because a program claims to be faith based - is NOT a reason to snub the law or take advantage of opportunity, ego, $$$$$$$$$, deceipt, power, and betrayal..i know of this in a personal way for my family was betrayed in a big way by a so-called faith based counseling program. this is serious business and i am hoping you see the wisdom in checking all angles before getting involved yourselves in whatever pursuits you see as worthwhile or possibly beneficial to folks needing help.

supporting a program or ministry :: secular or faith based :: 
DO YOUR RESEARCH! check the $ flow, the ideology, who supports the program or ministry, and both sides of opinion .. if there's a dissenting opinion of the program or ministry then by all means check it out!!! just because it's accepted, praised and lauded by a particular majority does NOT mean it's a healthy or beneficial entity to offer your personal and financial support, people!!! 
and YES, as a matter of fact i'm QUITE passionate about this subject.

new placement for my desk.

.     .     .

moving some things around after a bit 
of downsizing of furniture and smalls 
(accessories, glassware, dishes, clothing), 
with more to come - er - go. one thing we moved is my desk. it's now in the living room against the sidewall and in front of the window. pretty setting. pretty desk. pretty lamp. 
pretty banker's chair that rolls.. 

the desk is a $15 thrift store find..
the chair? it cost considerably more
from the shop in which i work.
the lamp? a few years back at a
mobile boutique gathering. i used
to sell antiques, vintage, upcycles
using a previously owned vintage trailer.
this one :

don't get too excited .. she's no longer up for adoption. my sweet friend peggy 'dopted her. i get visitation rights though it's been a while... hm. this lil darlin' is a 62 totem, a prototype built in british columbia. none other like it. very special. she's 10 feet long tongue to tail, 6 feet wide, 5 feet tall at the highest point inside. she boasts a double bed, kitchen, and closet. such a sweet thing.
