Hey everyone, I just want
to show you a couple pics that
I took on Christmas.  We got 
some thunder boomers in the
night on Christmas Eve, it
rained until about 2pm and then
it started snowing! We have had
little snow since we moved here
and this was the first "White
Christmas" I have had in years!

    
 We got a lot more than it
shows in this picture. 


Here's Chum in his favorite
spot, checking out the snow, I
think this is the first time he
has seen it.....This was taken
before the first picture.....He
doesn't like to be outside, if it
is hot or cold, he likes it just
right! Sound familiar?  Hubby 
opened the back door and asked
him if he wanted to go out, he 
could feel the cold air and there
    was no way he was going out!     

I want to wish you all a 
"Happy New Year".....

May you all have good health,
happiness & prosperity in the
coming year!

I may, or may not keep posting,
we shall see....

Hey everyone, thought I would 
pop on here and let you all know
that I am still around.  I have 
really been busy and running 
here and there, the craft show
and all, really had me busy!  I
did make it to Berlin, Ohio for 
a little while, really needed to
stay for a whole weekend, but
had other plans. 
 
 
I did get some great pictures
that I will share with you all,
later.  I tell ya what, I do not
want to go to Wooster, again 
without a map!   
 
 Well, I have some things to get
finished and sent out.
 
I have been seeing all your 
wonderful decorating and you are
all awesome!  I haven't even put
the tree up, yet.  I have a hard
time mustering up Christmas spirit,
anymore.....So, I guess I had better
check out some more of your
Christmas decor! ...lol....I am sure
that will help!

I hope everyone had a safe 
Halloween.....October just
flew by and I have been 
crafting, snowmen, scarecrows,
prairie dolls, pumpkins, Santas,
signs, gingerbread men and
sifter arrangements, painting
dust pans and welcome signs....
I made pillows  from a chenille
bedspread.  I need to finish the 
things that I have in the works 
and get them marked, then onto
rug hooking for several days.
Time is running out, the festival
is next week. I will leave you
all with a picture of one of the
dust pans, that I painted,
yesterday.  I think I like painting 
on dust pans, I did this winter
scene and a Fall scene, both 
 Terrye French designs. 


Thanks for stopping by and I hope 
you all are having a great week!

Now that I look at the picture, I think
it looks like the wall is bowed, maybe
it is because of the wave in the tin.
I will have to check it out and change
that, l can't have a house with a bow,
even if it is supposed to be an old
saltbox!......lol....

I hope you all are safe from the
storm.

Until next time.....

Hey everyone, I intended on 
posting about some goodies I 
have found, but thought I would
show you what I am working on.
I got accepted in the Big Fall 
Festival at Beavers Bend State
Park! It is one hard show to get
into, since there is only so much
room, plus it is juried. These are 
the pictures that I sent in to be
looked at....As you can see, I did
not tea stain the dolls and dresses,
since I don't know if anyone, 
around here, would like them done
that way. I do plan on having both.



 I made these pumpkins from a
chenille bedspread.




I made these santas from a pattern 
from Sandy of the Old Country Cupboard,
the doll pattern is a freebie from her, also.
 

The Raggedy Andy is my 2nd project 
at rug hooking, not sure if I am going
to make him into a pocket, purse or a
pillow, yet. All 3 of my projects are of
my own design.....He ended up being
finished after my 2nd ruglet, though.
 

 
As some of you may know, the ruglet
on the left is my first project....I may
have you confused, I was working on the
ruglet on the right at the same time as
the Andy face......I still need to put a
binding on them and they will be finished.
I have been ironing material and cutting 
out aprons this afternoon and I can tell
ya that I am too slow! It is a good thing 
that the festival is not until November!
I think it is late for a Fall festival, but
some of the trees still have their color 
and it is beautiful in the park!  
 
Well, I need to get back to work and
get something done!
 
Thanks for stopping by and a special
thank you to those who took the time
to tell me that they missed me, I really
do appreciate it, so much!

Even though we probably didn't know
anyone, who died on September 11th,
we shall always remember.....My hubby
 wears a flag on his shirt to work, every
day in memory of those who lost their
lives on that awful morning. 
 
I will be back to posting some things 
I am working on and some treasures.
Did anybody miss me?

Keeping Busy!

The time is sure flying by! I hope you 
all are staying cool in this heat! I have
been working on a couple of projects
that I am hooking, but I will show you 
pictures of that, later on.

We have had to go to our house 
in Texas to work on cleaning up the
trees that we had cut. We had most
of the brush done and we still had
the tree trunks to burn.  We found
another dead tree on the half acre,
with the house, that makes 12 trees
dead on the half acre and there are 
a lot of dead ones on the acre behind.

I took some pictures on the way back
and I thought I would share with you
some of them.





I have found some treasures, that
I will share with you all, soon.

I would also like to thank you all
for the wonderful comments 
on my patriotic decorating, outside.
I did intend on decorating on the
inside, but that never happened.
 

Until next time.....

Adding More To The Yard

Good Afternoon, friends! I hope
you all are having a great week...
I remembered my Uncle Sam
and my rusty flag, so I put them
out front with the rest of my
Americana things.








I like Uncle Sam up on the
top, the cloth flag just didn't
seem right.
 

 The flag doesn't show up very
well on the brick, I probably 
should have painted it, but I
I bet my prim friends like it
the way it is. ;) 
If you missed the previous 
post, please scroll on down
for some more pictures.

I would like to welcome my
newest followers! Thank you
for following, I hope you 
enjoy it!

Until next time~
