The Pumpkin Patch!

Hello everyone!  I hope you are all doing well.  A couple days ago we went to the pumpkin patch.  I brought along my camera and pocket/necklace watch.  I thought I would share with you all some of the pictures I took and edited in Photoshop.




                                     This photo was taken by my sister.  I just edited it.

               I did these ones with an app called A Beautiful Mess.


I hope you all have a great weekend!

Some Things I've Been Up To

Hello everyone!  I hope you are all doing well.  Today I am going to share some things I have been doing.  I know I have never really shared anything like this before so here we go!

I started up ballet again!  I say 'again' because I did ballet for years when I was younger.  It has been a long time since then, but I am excited to relearn.  I am going to be in the Nutcracker and I am very excited.  I love the costume, it is so pretty.  I love pointer shoes, and have always wanted a pair, maybe some day I will get a pair of my own. :)

Learn calligraphy online - free - with this easy step-by-step tutorial & complimentary printables.:
This is not mine. :)

I am also learning Calligraphy!  It is so pretty and fun.  I am not that good yet, but practice makes better!  I really like doing a Hobbiton Brushhand font with the Calligraphy penIt looks really cool!

✔ Streamline gift-giving by wrapping all your presents in the same pristine white paper brightened with bold color. It's elegant, economical, and easy to customize with tree cuttings, tags, and tempting candies.   -
So pretty!  But still, not my wrapping.

I know it's only October, but Christmas will be here soon!  I have been working on making Christmas presents this year, trying to get creative.  It has been very fun, looking for ideas on Pinterest and what not.  Very excited about giving people their gifts.


I have been loving Life is a Highway by Rascal Flatts.  It is one of the songs in Disney's Cars.  If you'd like to listen to it, here is a link Life is a Highway


House by Frank Pertti and Ted Dekker, it was very interesting.


The other day I watched Ben-Hur from 1959.  It was really good!  I loved how they portrayed Jesus, so awesome! 


Dubsmash.  Seriously, I saw one yesterday on Pinterest, and I couldn't hear it, so I went to YouTube and found it!  It was only 9 sec. long but awesome none the less!  Okay, I'll tell you what it was, it was Haley Atwell (Agent Peggy Carter), Chris Evens (Captain America) and the guy that plays Jarvis in the Agent Carter TV show, I don't know his name.  The song was Another One Bites the Dust.  It was so funny!  Me and my siblings have also been doing some, and I must say I LOVE making them, it is so much fun! :)

See yah later, thanks for reading! :-D

Movie Reviews; The Giver, and The Young Victoria

Today, I am going to be doing two movie reviews.  Lets start with The Giver. 


In the world that Jonas lives in there is no color.  At the coronation they tell you what you have to do and be.  There is no choice.  The world they live in is represented well through black and white picture.  Very strict.  No Freedom. But no one notices because it is all they have ever known.  Everyone is equal.  There is no envy.  No deceit.

There is a scene when the memory is war, but it isn't that long.  They have a place called Elsewhere, where they send the old people, and the babies that are not healthy.  This place is not real, they put a shot into them that kills them.

 At the coronation, which is when they basically graduate and now get their forever job.  Jonas's friends, Fiona and Asher are chosen for regular jobs.  Asher is a drone pilot, and Fiona is a caregiver  
for the babies.  Jonas, he gets to be the Receiver of Memory.

  The first time he goes to the Givers home, at the edge of their world and drops down into the unknown.  The Giver puts his hands on top of Jonas's, and suddenly, Jonas is in this beautiful world of color, with snow falling all around him.  He see's a sled for the first time and rides down on it.  Once he gets to the bottom poof, he's back at the Givers house. 

I saw this movie in the movie theater, and I must say it truly is amazing when you see the color, the crispness of it.  Here you are in black and white and then...color.  God's beautiful creation.

The Giver.
Jeff Bridges plays the Giver, and I must say I really like him.  The Giver holds all of the memories of the world forgotten.  The elders that are in charge of this world, don't even know the life before.  If they need guidance they will ask him for it, otherwise, they leave him alone.  He is the keeper of memories, but he has no one to share them with...until Jonas is chosen as the new Receiver.
*SPOLIERS*  The reason I say *new* is because there was a receiver before Jonas, that couldn't handle some of the more...sad memories, such as war.  The few scenes with her, she is played by Taylor Swift. She went to the Elders, and was sent to Elsewhere. (she died) * END OF SPOILERS*

She is like a love interest for Jonas, but I like her.  She is fun and sweet, and cares about Jonas.  It's nice that they grew up together being friends, then it develops into something more.
She is also not afraid to do the right thing. 

Overall, this movie is on faith and freedom.  Jonas gets a taste of what he has been deprived from his whole life.  He sees all the good, and some bad.  But he knows that the way that he, his family, friends, and everyone else have been living, is not really living at all.  So he sets out to do what is right, even when it is hard.  He has faith that he can do it, and freedom ringing in his heart.
The scenes when he is getting memories from the Giver, are truly beautiful.  The color, scenery, all of it.  I think sometimes we take for granted all that we have been blessed with.  God is truly an amazing artist, I love His creation that is all around us.  The mountains, lakes, ocean, trees, flowers, and the sky.  There is more, but I will stop there. 
If you have not seen this movie, you should!  It is well done and inspiring. 
The Young Victoria
The Young Victoria is about Queen Victoria and her younger days.  She is played by Emily Blunt and she did a great job! Her outfits where gorgeous!  And as you can see in the picture above, she is wearing flowers in her hair, and that was true with the real Queen Victoria.
Queen Victoria.  See the flowers? :)
 Aren't they adorable? 
 Victoria inherited the throne at the young age of 18.  Her father and all of her uncles had died, and she was the only legitimate child left.  She is also the first Royal to live at Buckingham Palace. 
She meets Prince Albert (her cousin) before she becomes queen, and they like each other from the start.  They write each other, and Albert comes to visit.  It is the sweetest of the romance stories, because it was real.  Not just in the movie, but with the real Albert and Victoria herself. 
This movie is so sweet, I love the parts with Albert and Victoria.  You can tell that they really love one another.  Albert didn't want to marry the Queen for a title, he wanted to marry her because he loves her.  One of my favorite parts is when she proposes to him, because you cannot propose to a Queen, she has to ask you.
Prince Albert: I just got your note. I was riding.
                                           Queen Victoria: Sit, please.
                                           Prince Albert: The park is marvelous.
                                           Queen Victoria: I'm so pleased you like it. I do want you to feel quite at home... I'm sure you're aware why I wished you to come here. Because it would make me happier than anything, too happy really, if you would agree to what I wish.
                                          Prince Albert: And stay with you?
                                         Queen Victoria: And stay with me.
                                          Prince Albert: And marry you?
                                         Queen Victoria: And marry me!

*happy sigh*  I just love this part.  Reading it doesn't do it justice.
Besides the romance aspect, it also has some bad guys, allow me to introduce you to,
 Sir John Conroy
Grrrr.  I don't like this guy.  Of course I  do like Mark Strong the actor, but the bad.
Sir John is a control freak, over all of the Duchess of Kent's (Victoria's mother) business.  He takes care of her funds, is super bossy and wants to control Victoria.  Once Victoria is Queen, she takes her leave and lives at Buckingham Palace.  Though he does come to live there for a time with her mother.
 He is cruel to Victoria, and eventually, he is dismissed.
Victoria to her Mother: Oh, and if you think that I will ever forget that you just stood by silent and you watched him treat me thus, you are dreaming!
Yes, Sir John heavily influenced The Duchess of Kent.  In some not good ways.
 Lord Melbourne
Though you would like to think he is help the Queen, he is in it for his own selfish game.  He tries to control Victoria, and she trusts him, believing that he is helping her.  I love Albert, he can see right through him.  Here is a quote that Albert says to him;
Lord Melbourne: Your Highness, there's your opening if you'll take my advice...
Prince Albert: Lord Melbourne, forgive me but you seem to have confused me with a member of your club. I am not your drinking companion nor your whist partner. I am the husband of your sovereign. And as such, I will make my own decisions, and I neither seek nor invite your advice. Good evening."
 You go Albert!  Stand your ground man, stand yo ground.
Prince Albert
I just love Prince Albert.  He is so sweet and kind.  He truly loves Victoria with all of this heart. 
He wants to help people and Victoria.  They even had their desks put back to back, so that they could face each other while they worked.  Also, do you recognize the actor??  It is Mr. Wickham from Pride and Prejudice 2005.  When my mom told me that I was kinda freaking out. does look like him, just remove the facial hair.  I like him better with facial hair, as I do with most guys. :)
*SPOILERS* And when he gets shot at the end, for protecting Victoria. 
                      Queen Victoria: [sobbing] I'm so sorry! I thought I was going to lose you!                      Prince Albert: I don't think he was a very good shot.
                      Queen Victoria: Why did you do it? So stupid, why did you do it?
                      Prince Albert: I had two very good reasons. First, I am replaceable and you are not.
                      Queen Victoria: You are not replaceable to me!
                      Prince Albert: Second, you're the only wife I've got or ever will have. You are my
                      whole existence, and I will love you until my very last breath.

                               Awwww.  Isn't he just the sweetest?! *END OF SPOILERS*


 Over all, I loved this movie.  I like that it is pretty accurate to the real story.  It was so delightful, and just...ahhh.  If you haven't seen it I highly recommend it. 
As a final note, Victoria and Albert loved each other so much, that after he died, Victoria went into such grief. Each day she would have his clothes laid out, and wore only black for the rest of her life.  Thankfully, that didn't get into the movie...that would have been sad. 
Also, they had nine children.  Yes, nine.  In the movie Albert said he wanted a big family.  :)
If you read all of that, kudos to yah. :)  I hope you enjoyed it.

5 Male Characters Tag

Hello everyone!  I was tagged by Ms. Meredith to do the 5 Male Character Tag.
Lets get to it!


1. List 5 of your favorite male characters (book or screen)
2. Tagging other people is optional
3. If you are tagged, link back to the person who tagged you (Meredith)
4. Link back to Revealed in Time (preferably using the link to this post)

Choose one from each category:
1. Hero
2. Villain
3. Anti-hero
4. Best book-to-screen adaption
5. Best character perception



There are so many great heroes, so I am going to do my favorite Superhero from Marvel.

Captain America/Steve Rogers.
He is an awesome guy.  He always is doing what is right even if it is hard. 
 He never gives up, he keeps going, and stands for what is good, always.
He also has some great lines, but this ones my favorite;
Black Widow/Natasha:  These guys come from legends Cap, there basically gods.
Steve:  There is only One God, ma'am, and I am pretty sure He doesn't dress like that. 
 This is the one of the ones Steve was referring to above.
  Yes, there are lots of great bad guys, so if we are going for one that I really like...your looking at him.  He's just a really good bad guy, though he has a great sense of humor, like in Thor; The Dark World. In Avengers though, he is really bad. (Because he's the main bad guy)
I think I also really like him because of the actor who plays him, Tom Hiddleston.
Guy of Gisborne
First off, it's Richard Armitage!  He was the reason I started watching the show, and I also heard that it was good.  Guy works for the real bad guy, and he does do some bad things, but at the end he does what is right.  I just love him.
Best book-to-screen adaption
Samwise Gamgee
Since I watched the movies before I read any of the books, I had in my minds eye that the characters looked like the ones in the movies.  While I was reading the books, I told my Mom that Sean Astin was like Sam from the books.  He did a great job as Sam, in my opinion, he nailed it. 
Best character perception
Mr. Darcy.
He is a gentlemen, who knows how to profess his love in the sweetest way.
The first Pride and Prejudice that I watched was the one from 2005.  I liked it, and then I read the book. 
There was a lot that was left out, but it was, and still is a good movie.  Then I watched the Pride and Prejudice from 1995, and I was like "It's just like the book!"  They did such a great job, but since it was for TV they got more time, hence, more scenes from the book.
Thank you for reading!
