" Lady Katherine "

I talked in my post yesterday about being surprised by several different things. I also talked about how amazed I am at how many bloggers out there have such creativity flowing in their lives. One of those very creative spirits I had in mind while writing that post was Lady Katherine @ Lady Katherine's Tea Parlor. When I visited her blog yesterday I got not only a surprise but my heart was broken after reading her post. Katherine also lives in Mississippi, about 100 miles from me. She is the founder of the Mississippi Blogger group Mississippi Magnolia Southern Belles. She contacted me a few months ago and ask me to join the group. I started following her blog and was just amazed at her enormous creative talent!




This is Lady Katherine drinking Tea in her Parlor............

She makes her own Scones to go with tea............

In fact, her talent for making things is incredible! A handmade Wall Sconce....



Her Hand Painted Kitchen Floor.....now this is creative talent!





She designed and built this China Hutch............





Built this Chandelier from used parts of other stuff..........








Painted this Cabinet...........















She makes Handmade Brooms..............









She painted these end tables for her Native American room............











Oh...and if you can make Brooms, you can also make Baskets! Can you believe this woman's talent?









Katherine lives with her talented husband of 31 years in a Bungalow on 10 acres of land where she also raises Chickens and Sheep......










Yesterday when visiting her wonderful Blog http://ladykatherineteaparlor.blogspot.com/
I learned she has been in a long fight with Breast Cancer and is about to under go her 40th surgery. I not only was shocked, I was heart broken! I had to leave my computer and pray. After having my own recent scare about this disease, I just felt that posting about her today and asking ALL you wonderful friends out there to PRAY for Katherine was what I needed to do! Please visit her blog by one of the links I've provided here, join up to follow it and let us band together the way you ALL did for ME and ask for the FAVOR of GOD in Katherine's life and a MIRACLE in defense against this Monster Disease!

Oh Carol, Your post made me cry. I'm so sorry for Katherine. I hope and pray that she will 'beat' that horrible disease. My prayers to her and her family.

One of my best friends is also struggling with breast cancer, so that makes it even more emotional to me.

Hugs,

Oh, Carol I've came to your site several times today and I guess I have just been clicking on your title not your blog to see all your post.
What a beautiful article you have written about me. I did not know, I knew ladies from your site were coming over. I am lost for words, that doesn't happen very often ask my husband. You make me sound so special, Oh I am not, just a simple lady with a lot gone wrong with an illness. I never told my true story and still can't, Doc says look forward, I made it through some hard things. One day, I will tell my whole journey with breast cancer and all that happened. But for now, I am going to enjoy every minute God has given me. Please tell the lady that feels sorry for me, Never do, for this is my Cross to Bare and I bare it gratefully, for God has saved me three times from death door. I have gotten to live and enjoy life. Yes, there are bad days, but I have learned to pick myself up! Doc wonders how I do it,without medication, I say God and my Bible, and a loving family! Thank you for such an honor with such a beautiful article written about me. Thank you for such a wonderful gift of friendship, a gift of an Angel. Lady Katherine
