Vintage Gwen Chapel-Battling with Power


A movie I could watch over and over is Gladiator.
It has some pretty great quotes that can be applied to life now. 
I got to watch part of it on Friday night and one of my favorite parts is where Maximus turns his back on the Emperor and then dramatically shows his face and announces who he is.  

"My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius. Commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next."

He first gives his title and where his loyalty lies.  Then more personal titles about who he is and what's been done to him. And finally a declaration of what is to happen to his enemy.

What would happen for us if we alerted our enemy the same way Maximus did?

"My name Jennifer Wheeler, daughter of the Most High King, loyal servant to the one and only Christ.  Woman of God who you try and come against.  The end has been written from the beginning, vengeance is the Lord's!"

How about that for some powerful words?! Why don't we battle this way every time? If we did, then wouldn't our battles get shorter and shorter? I would think so!
I'm going to challenge myself to remember this the next time I have my enemy breathing down my neck!
How about you?


Romans 12:19
Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. 


Be blessed!

Soiree Day-Free Breast Cancer Awareness Notecards

As October is quickly winding down I didn't want to let the fact that it is Breast Cancer Awareness month go by. Last year I shared some free printable note cards that I used to start a tradition with my survivor mother in law.  Just a simple note in the mail means more than one can imagine, trust me!  And this year it's been in my mind to not forget what I started. To go along with my card I made her a simple pink chevron hot pad for the kitchen.  I decided to just make my own note card so here's what I came up with!

Please use these for yourself! Just right click and save! 
{Note: I am out of ink so I wasn't able to test how these printed out! It should print on half a regular sized piece of copy paper, then fold in half.}

Can't wait to get one sent off to my mother in law!
Happy Soiree Day!

Vintage Gwen Chapel-Saturday Song



Thanks to Lauren of Mercy Ink I have been singing and singing and singing this beautiful song.  
And I've cried too. I've not been the best me this week and this song has been so very comforting to me. 

"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”


Be blessed!

October Birchbox

I wasn't sure what to expect with this month's Birchbox. I opted in for the Goop box. I thought I'd try it to see how or if it would be any different.  Not sure if really there's any difference at all.  I am excited to try a mascara and I've had the Luna bar before so it will be a nice treat.


After taking the group photo I realized the little lip gloss was messed up. Kinda cute packaging for that once it went where it was supposed to go! Ha!

Here's what's what:

Chantecaille Faux Cils Mascara
DDF Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer
EVE LOM Cleanser and Muslin Cloth
per-fekt Beauty Lip Perfection Gel
LUNA LemonZest

Did you get the Goop box? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
Sometimes I don't  use everything in the box but looking at the list I'll be sampling everything this time so we'll see how they all turn out!
To find out more about Birchbox go HERE.

Happy Friday!

Owl Onesie


Yep I've been making baby things again. It just never gets old!  
This time I created an applique! I usually just do an initial or shape but wanted to make an owl. 
So I googled 'free owl applique pattern' and found this...


I had to enlarge a couple of times to get the size I needed.  I didn't take photos of how I did this but it's so very easy!  All you need really is scraps. I cut everything out then starting with the eyes I sewed the inner eye to the outer eye. Next I sewed the eyes to the face and beak. Then sewed that piece and the wings to the body. Now it's one piece! To keep things simple I leave all edges raw. I use Pellon Wonder-Under to apply shapes/initials to any size onesie. 


The result is cute custom creations!
I have more to make too! I'm getting a new nephew in about 2 1/2 months!

Happy Thursday!!

Soiree Day-Vintage Owl Baby Shower

Last Saturday I got to do one of my favorite things. Help with a party! One of my beautiful best friends is welcoming her 3rd grand baby in about 2 months.  I didn't do really a whole lot, I made the banner and loaned out some of my stuff.  Yes I have party worthy stuff! I bet you do too if you think about it!
Owls, vintage books, fall flowers and leaves were used to create a lovely atmosphere. 
It was a very nice shower!

The soon to be daddy's mom provided yummy, yummy food that I didn't get a picture of, these were all taken before guests arrived. The sweets were yummy too...spiced pecans and carrot cake balls were the best!
Simple but lovely! The best kind!
Congrats to the new parents!

Happy Soiree Day!

Chic Couture-Rose Gold Love

I adore rose gold.  It says vintage, classic, beauty to me.  I recently went into a boutique and saw a rose gold watch and it inspired me to search out some other pieces.  
I would take one of everything I found!! Rose Gold Love





What's your take on rose gold jewelry? 

It's been awhile so linking up to Blonde Episodes!

I Coffee Mug Swapped!

Ok so I gotta admit something....I'm loving swaps!! (or exchanges.) I've done four now.  A Christmas ornament, blog journal, nail polish and finally a coffee mug! And they have all been so fun!
Heather of Heatherly Loves invited me to join her swap and well, why say no? 
And I have actually been thinking of doing one myself! So we'll see!
{If you think that's a grand idea then let me know!}
I'm not sure how much research Heather did but she paired me with a wonderful gal, Kristina of The Streeters Unlimited! We have a few things in common. We both love handmade items, love our faith, and we both are mommas to November babies.  Well, she is going to be, how exciting! And then there's that whole blogging thing too! Great things to have in common! We were advised to stalk each other's Pinterest boards and blogs to get inspiration and I'm still smiling about the coffee mug she sent me!



Isn't it beautiful? I love, love it! It's pink, vintagey, modern!!
It's a ceramic double walled mug and I wasted no time in testing it out yesterday morning...


Yes it was yum!!
Is it weird this just might be my new prized possession?  
Right after Lil' Hunkie, of course!

Thanks again Kristina!!
  ♥♥♥

Happy Thursday!!
