We won a giveaway and Thursday Theme Song

In December Hootin' Anni (the very nice lady who sponsors Thursday Theme Song) had a giveaway.  Mom was one of 47 peeps who registered.  Lo and behold, Mom won this very beautiful Poinsettia scarf crocheted by Ms. Anni's.    Mom seems to think it is hers but there was something there for me too.  As soon as she put it on the couch, I was up there in a flash giving it the once over.  THANK YOU VERY MUCH MS. ANNI
I HAD TO REMIND MOM TO USE HER INSIDE VOICE WHEN SHE SAW IT

Today's song is
"My Little Corner of the World"
song by
Anita Bryant in 1960
We thank Hootin' Anni for sponsoring this
fun meme!!


Mom and I selected a few of my favorite corners/places
in 'my world' to share with you we hope you enjoy them...so now
Come along with me to my little corner of the world
Dream a little dream in my little corner of the world
You'll soon forget that there's any other place


Tonight, my love, my friends, we'll share a sweet embrace
And if you care to stay in my little corner of the world
We could hide away in my little corner of the world
I always knew that I'd find someone like you
So welcome to my little corner of the world.

Please click on the below video to hear the lovely and talented Miss Anita Bryant sing this song


We thank you for coming by to see us today.

Steeple(less) Sunday: Temple Beth Or

Temple Beth Or, 'House of Light',
is on Creedmoor Road, which is not far from our home; however, it is on a side of the road we rarely travel except weekends and I often forget my camera.
During the holidays, getting pictures of this beautiful Temple was on the top of my to do list. 
 Temple Beth Or has been an active Reform congregration in Raleigh since 1912.  It is nestled in a beautiful setting amongst
many hardwoods.  Ever though it is off a busy street the setting is very tranquil.  This is the view you have as soon as you turn in the driveway. 
 It was founded by a Jewish group associated with the Hebrew Sunday School Society in Raleigh. Originally it was located on Hillsborough Street, just a few blocks from N. C. State University,
Meredith College and St. Mary's College. The congregation moved to this location in 1978.  The Religious School wing was added in 1984 and the Education Building was dedicated in 1999.  There are
currently over 500 member familities dedicated to the service of their faith and to each other.  Many beautiful windows and angles make this a very unique Temple.  As you can see this was taken right after the big snow of December 25 and 27, 2010.
 The roof is cedar, I love how the moss is growing naturally on it.

 I absolutely love the angles in this picture.  I think the straight
trunk of the tree intensifies the angles and windows

 I found these two reserved parking places very interesting.
The first one is for the Rabbi
After a little reseach I found out the President of the congregation is the Chief Executive Officer
We just never know what beauty will be down a road until we make the turn.
