Henington House Joy Life! Issue 1
www.heningtonhouse.com
Contact Us
How often have we been told throughout our lives what seems to be
conflicting direction. "Dream BIG!" or "Don't wish your life away." "Reach for the
Stars!" or "Bloom where you're planted." The truth I've found, is that all is possible
if first we learn to relax. Yes, relax. Relax in He who made you, relax in how He
made you and relax in why He made you. Now make no mistake, we may not
ever know exactly the answer to any of these, but it's in the resting and knowing
HE KNOWS, where the peace begins. So when we realize that we are NOT in
charge of making it happen, but that HE IS, then the pressure begins to lift and
our Faith in Him begins to strengthen. Know that this will not happen instantly, but
by relaxing in Him day by day, we will experience the change. For embracing
TODAY, is where we can begin to enJOY the journey. Trying to do anything in
our own strength is self-destructive, resulting in being overwhelmed, frustrated
and having a sense that we have missed the mark or failed. Let's begin by
realizing worry accomplishes nothing! It wears us out and results in missing
what's most important, the precious time, blessings, gifts and talents our Father
has given us TODAY! So Let Go and Let God, for it's when we begin to relax in
His Love and embrace everyday uniquely, that we begin to Live the JOY Life!

Above: Camellia Wreath made from a water soaked floral foam
wreath form and Camellias.
Right: This Camellia Topiary is made first by creating a topiary
form out of a terrecotta pot, fast drying cement and a stick. These
forms you can keep on hand in order to create topiaries out of
any material live or faux! If using live material, simply gently push
down a soaked floal form ball or cube onto the top of the
stick/branch. For faux or dried materials, you can use styrofoam.
Place some at the base as well anchoring with floral tape across
the top if you thik it needs it. The Terrecotta pot form can be used
as is or simply set down in another pot as shown here.

GREAT
Jar Opener
Can Opener
THE CLENCH WRENCH JAR OPENER
has become one of my all time
favorite Kitchen Gadgets. Even in my
youth and stronger days, there were
jars and bottles that were very
challenging. There is nothing more
frustrating then when Cath's not
around and I can't get something
open, but now with my Clench
Wrench, BRING IT ON!
By Randall Strange
Both Great Gadgets were found sometime ago at
The Kitchen Table
www.kitchentablenow.com
THE SNAP LOCK HAND
CAN OPENER
Many use electric can openers these
days but who hasn't been in the
situation where you need a hand held
can opener. The electricity goes out,
you're camping or simply faced with a
can, that for whatever reason, the
electric can opener just won't open.
Well, I'm here to tell you that the snap
lock hand can opener is the way to go.
It's easy to hold and locks in place so it
doesn't slip or slide. I am so sold on this
tool that I've retired my electric one!

A Family's History Passed Down
in a French Onion Soup Recipe
Both Mardi Winton's Mother and Grandfather
made sure that she had the Family's French
Onion Soup Recipe as well as making sure that
she knew the Family History that went along with
it!
Many years ago Mardi's Great Aunts, Maria and
Victorine, were Chefs in Paris where their Family
soup recipe did not go unnoticed. Mardi's Great,
Great Grandmother, meme, Angele Coolie, who is
credited for creating the soup recipe, then
migrated to San Fransisco where she was a Chef
at the Palace Hotel on Market Street where once
again the treasured recipe gained notoriety.

"We need more light. Is there a lamp that would look better here,
or one we're not using?"

"We need garland over the mantle that's not faux but will last for awhile"
What do we have? What can we do?
My strength is not in designing or creating without a starting
point. But give me a shoebox full of stuff, or show me what we're working
with and watch me go. I believe most people can create and put things
together if they first know what they have to work with, and know what
they Love. Often we acquire much of what others have Loved and then
wonder why nothing in our home seems to click or sings to our soul.
Start first, by looking around and see what you've got in the closets the
attic, EVERYWHERE. If you know you're not ever going to use it, GET
RID OF IT! If you're using something you really don't like, get rid of it too!
Working with only the things you have AND Love is where you want to
be! Now, pull those things together and decorate creating Joyful and
pleasing vignettes. You'll find this isn't difficult now that you're working
with the things you Love. These areas in your home now not only serve
the purpose needed, but LIFT YOU UP! Next, take note of the voids. Do
you still need a lamp? An ottoman to put your feet up? A small table next
to your reading chair for your books and a cup of Tea? List them all.
Now, You're ready to shop! You have a clear mind as to what you still
need as well as a keen eye for what you Love. Take this new and
valuable knowledge and hit the stores. Those helping you in your
selection process will find this information helpful as well!

Red Roses
ONE VASE ARRANGEMENT
Over the top with an explosion of blooms,
or a single rose,
this arrangement is a beautiful way
to express your sentiments.
75-100 Red Roses
8" wet floral foam sphere
"I Love You" tag
water
Fill bottom of the cylinder with rose petals.
Add a little water. Tie the tag to the stem of a
single rose and set down inside. If using the
rose ball on top, completely soak the floral
foam sphere.
Notes:
*Using carnations in place of roses on the
sphere will give you a very similar look.
*After awhile, with the sphere on top,
condensation will build up on the inside
of the cylinder.
*The tag on the single rose inside helps it
stand alone inside the vase.
