Floral Vintage Hanky

Floral Vintage Handkerchief mug

Hello everyone, and welcome to Leisure Lane. I hope you’re enjoying a lovely day. Spring is right around the corner (though we’ve been having it all winter here).

I’d like to share my newest design, Floral Vintage Handkerchief, in my LeisureLane1 Redbubble shop. It was one of my mother’s hankies posed with a matching flower and a lovely hand crocheted pouch, which I keep some of her hankies in. It’s a lovely design for all of us romantic/shabby chic lovers, and a perfect design to welcome in a new season.

Set of 4 coasters

It’s available on other products as well. To see these products and more, click images or here.

Thank you for stopping by today. A reminder, I may be having a giveaway of one of my designed products some time in the spring – I’ll keep you posted. Remember to say the things you desire in your life, even if they’re not manifested at this time. Keep looking forward and expecting all the good and wholeness God desires for you in every area of your life – mind, body, and estate, and…

Until next time, may happy days abound!

Call On Me…Psalm 50:15 to Encourage and Inspire


Psalm 50:15 mug

mug side view

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you had a delightful weekend and you’re ready for a new and prosperous week ahead.

One of the new designs in my LeisureLane1 Redbubble shop incorporates a beautiful scripture to encourage and inspire anyone. “Call on Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will glorify Me” from Psalm 50:15 is a reminder of God’s intense love and desire for us to know Him more intimately and to help us whenever we have a need. The command for us is to call upon Him, and He promises to deliver. That deliverance inspires us to glorify Him.

Sickness does not glorify God, poverty and striving does not glorify God, but His delivering us from those things does. Do you remember a time when God intervened for you – when He helped you out of a distress, or helped you get somewhere in life you desired to be? Did you glorify Him to others? Did you sing of His goodness to you? If not, it’s never too late. Bring it to remembrance again, give thanks, and tell someone about it. If you have no one you think wants to hear your story, I do, so feel free to leave a comment and tell us about His goodness to you. Inspire us, encourage us.

If you’d like to see more products with this lovely design and scripture, click here. Keep yourself inspired or encourage someone you love. I’m thinking of having a giveaway from my shop at some point – maybe in the Spring – I’ll keep you all posted. In the meantime, laugh today, give someone your love, encourage another with kind words, and…

Until next time, may happy days abound!

Romantic Blush with a Beach Twist

Romantic Blush mug

Side view

Good day everyone and thank you for strolling by Leisure Lane today.

I’m not really a beach person, but I do like the sea-foam blues and greens that give a “down the shore” feel (but without all the sandy cleanup). Added with the pink blush of roses and you get that romantic blush touch with a twist of beach.

The newest design in my LeisureLane1 shop is perfect for the romantic/shabby chic lover.

Whimsical Teapot and Pink Tea Roses Romantic Chic

Whimsical Teapot and Pink Tea Roses coasters

Hello everyone, and welcome to Leisure Lane. It’s a lovely day here with clear skies, crisp coldness and low humidity. Such a wonderful change from the past few weeks.

Greeting card

I’ve added another lovely design to my Redbubble shop, LeisureLane1. The design lends itself nicely for a Mother, friend, or someone special Valentine greeting, Mother’s day greeting, or any occasion to brighten someone’s day. It’s perfect for the romantic chic and vintage lover in us all. I ordered one as a greeting card, but it’s also available in postcards, travel mugs, phone cases, coffee mugs and more. Click the images to see everything.

My friends and I have brought back the lost art of sending greetings through the mail. It’s so much nicer than receiving a text or email. First, it gives you something lovely (or funny) to look at, and second, reading something in someone’s own hand is so much more personal and heart-felt. It’s a little bit of them – their energy, personality, and substance in your day. At least that’s how I see it – but then, I’m a bit old-school.

Go out and enjoy the day – take a walk, take a break, listen to the breeze, smell the clean cold air, watch the squirrels – something that gives you a sense of calm and happiness. Persevere, find gratitude in at least one thing today, laugh hard, and…

Until next time, may happy days abound.

River Runs Deep: a love story

Hello friends, and thanks for strolling by the lane today.

Last night I had a dream about my book, River Runs Deep, so, today I decided to feature it. This story was quite therapeutic for me in many ways. First, while writing it, I was still working at the awful job I was able to be redeemed from this past May, and little did I know at the time of writing it how prophetic it would be. Second, it was a beautiful way to rekindle a sweet memory that has lasted all these years.

Though it’s a fictional story, there is much truth in many of the story’s circumstances, so it really was, as they say, writing about what you know. If you’re looking for a good, clean romance (like Hallmark, only with a bit more depth), one that puts a lot of story into a short amount of reading time, then I think you’ll enjoy River Runs Deep: a love story.

Come by and visit again. There are lots of things on Leisure Lane to inspire you from past to present. Be brave, think twice, do what’s right, and…

Until next time, may happy days abound!

Arise and Shine!


“Arise and Shine” coffee/tea mug

Good morning, friends. Arise and Shine! I hope you’re enjoying a sunny day, no matter the weather.

I love this Arise and Shine design. It just seems to make me want to start the day with vigor. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll notice that most of the lovely photos that have accompanied my articles here on the Leisure Lane blog over the years are now available on products for you to enjoy. It was a dream of mine for you (and me) to enjoy these lovely photos in your own home – everyday.


“Arise and Shine!” phone cases

to see all the products this design is available on, click here.

Another intent of mine has always been to encourage, motivate, and inspire others to be their best – to grow in confidence, knowing that their total well-being is supported by someone. The journey is a lifetime, and sometimes arduous – so many steps back along with the steps forward – but it should be sprayed with joy knowing that progress is being made. That’s how I look at it. Being able to show my authentic self after so many years of hiding who I really was at a struggling job is one of the most liberating things God has done for me. It was like he said, “You don’t have to start all over, my dear one…we’ll just brush off some of the dust on your soul and continue on.” What a gift to know I am so important to the LORD, the one who flung the Universe into existence.

So, Arise and Shine and let your light shine through – there’s no better day than today!

Well, I hope you enjoyed your visit here today, and you found something to inspire and uplift you. If you have, share it with someone else – spread the positive aspects of everything about you, and…

Until next time, may happy days abound!

February Spiral Notebook for Dreams, Thoughts, Ideas, and More

February Spiral Notebook from The Knittington Fairies collection.
Also available in note cards, postcards, stickers, and more.

Good day, friends, and welcome to Leisure Lane. I hope you’re all enjoying the beginning of the new year with good health and new dreams (or expansions on some older ones).

A February spiral notebook is available to write down dreams, aspirations, thoughts, gratitude, ideas, and so much more. I began a gratitude journal in 2012 to switch my thoughts from the negative side of the day to the positive. It works wonders and turned into a gratitude/affirmation journal, as I make the scriptures my personal affirmations about how God sees me and who I am in and with Him. After all, Jesus’ whole life was one big affirmation of God’s love for us. That should make us very grateful.

Thank you for visiting today. I hope you find something here to inspire your day. Until next time, may happy days abound!
