Oh I just got a to see a beautiful and really interesting site LENKA

she is soooosooooo talented and fabulous photography.....

a must see(:)


Well Now that I've gathered all the branches from my back yard there is a huge pile in my garden area waiting for my husband to pickup and haul out front to the truck ..then off to my sons orchard (cherries) where afew times a year burning is allowed.. I remember the good(well maybe not so good) ol'days when we could burn a pile of twigs and other garden debris..

Not so good for our air .. however it was fun(:) kids would love it poking long stick into it (:)

Lastnight was so fun my little grandson came with his daddy ( I gave daddy a haircut, I have a little beauty shop downstair) he is going to be a year old April 5th ..almost walking .. loved the banana baby cookies I gave him.. they are shaped with a curve like a banana.. however with only two bottom teeth (when he smiles he looks like a jack-o-lantern) big chunks ended up in his mouth so we decided to break the cookie up into tiny pieces.. he picked at the crumbs till the last one was all gone..SOOOO darling >>LOVE that little Carter(:)

My other son Adam came up too he wanted to see the baby..well we all went downstairs to cut hair and afterwards we (well daddy and baby sat on the bed an we all gathered around to watch baby dumplins -just be cute -- I got out

all the stuffed animal (from my kids) I had saved for 30 plus years that were stored under my stairway..we had fun reminiscing about them and the baby loved it.. I saves so many things of my kids... a lot of their old wooden puzzles, games and I am glad I did..(:)

Well Shirley just called and we are going to color her hair in afew(:) hugs from this end..Patty~~Have a wonderful day everyone~~~

LOVE this gals little roses painting and her stitcheries(:) ETSY so cute another

SATURDAY February 23rd
I just went in and read 10 ways blogland is like High School at ''Shabby in the city'' very cute a must read~~ can you remember all the cliques and junk that went on ..oh my goodness !!

~~~if you have any old HS memories to share (comments below) on here please do ..(:)

Yesterday ..I spent about an hour out in my back yard pulling up gunky slimey plants from the flower beds and raked the left over dried leaves from the trees onto a big pile .I used a big plastic tarp to make it easy to drag it down and dump in the garden plot..will be mulched in a few months from now and make better soil for my gourd and veggies to grow(:)

I also picked up several huges piles of fruit trees branches from the pruning of them this fall..felt good to do some manual labor(:)

So it is starting to look alittle better~~Yeah~~!!!




This is some of my beautiful VINTAGE Flapper HAT girls collection.. Love these.. if you 'd like to save them to your documents right click on them should do it..choose save to : my pictures or documents.. They make darling cards or little pictures framed in a grouping~~


I have lots of other images-- Flapper Headbands, Vintage Bonnets,dresses, theatre costumes, Vintage automobiles, vintage children, Fairies..etc...
I'll post some of these later..



While working on a big bowl of my- soup-goulash- not sure what it actually is but is yummy ..this morning I was wiping off spoons and counters as I went and thinking about how I have gotten to be even more of a neat-nic then ever ..a monk ..a fus-buzzy ?? ALL of them I suppose may be due to having more time on my hands since the kids are on their own... Just wondering if anyone else is seeing sign of this happening to them??

Let me know (:) isn't a bad thing ..just a new me I guess(:)

Have been thinking Easter and starting to make more decor items.. We went down to Yakima yesterday and had a great lunch at Olive Garden..then went to a cute store called
