In case you forgot.

He sent me a text,

I am one lucky girl!

Sew Sew Crafty

I will just preface this post with,
I do not sew!

I have not touched a sewing machine for 35 years.

After taking Home Ec
( Not sure of the spelling of Home Ec, either is spell check.  
It wants to replace it with Homer?????)
in 7th grade,
I decided that I disliked sewing and the teacher.

But because of blogging, and all these wonderful bloggers
making incredible things and posting that they do not know how to sew,
I decided to give it a try.

Also, I needed two tablecloths to fit my 12 foot tables
 that my Dad gave to me. He had an old sheepherder
 make them for his sheep camp so that all of the herders
 could fit around the tables to eat their meals.

For the material, I used old vintage tablecloths that I have been
collecting for years.  Most of them are stained and have holes
in them, so it didn't bother me to cut them up.

I also added a ruffle to the tablecloths and I was definitely
flying by the seat of my pants on that one, because I
did not have a clue how to do it.

I really like my pillow that I did in the first few pictures.

For the pillow,I used another old tablecloth and an 
old western shirt that belonged to my husband. 
 I really like the way it turned out.  

A garland I made using an old white sheet.

I made it long enough to wrap around our back porch.

I am really excited about my new adventure,
I have a million ideas.
So I better get busy.

My Buddhist Corner and a Dirty Window

I think all I am missing is a burning cigarette.
Oh, and maybe some fruit or a donut.

Explaining the Buddhist corner:

Just to clarify,
I am not Buddhist. 
 I have nothing against the Buddhist people, its just not my thing.
I was making fun of my little window sill.
Whenever you visit the nail places they always have a 
ceramic Buddhist with a burning cigarette, fruit, and a donut.
I do not know why.
It was my attempt at being humorous and making fun of myself.
I could not throw away the little yellow can and so I thought I would put some daisies
in it from our garden.  I picked the last of our beets and these were
to small to cook, so I put them in the bottles.
And what can I say about Mary, 
I have lots of stories about Mary in my life,
but that is for another post.
I love looking at my Buddhist corner when I am doing my dishes.

and Would you look at that window...

Happy Monday...

I love all of these dresses.
I love the pink bag, red shoes and girly hat.

I think the designers in the 40's and 50's had it right.
Pretty and feminine.

Heading off to the north to play Cowgirl. 
Where I will be wearing my favorite outfit and shoes.
Jeans, western shirt and boots.

Have a great weekend...

Geting Old

Rushing out the door this morning,
I grabbed a pair of flip flops out of my closet.

After taking my daughter to school,
I got out of my car and when I looked down,
this is what I saw.

I just started laughing.
Its gonna be a great day!

I think my legs need lotion...

I just noticed I spelled getting wrong.
Maybe I shouldn't leave the house today...

I love the way BHLDN thinks.
These party supplies are beautiful, 
along with being very expensive.

I think in another lifetime,
I had the painted drop cloths hanging
in my castle.
Oh, you didn't know,
I was a Queen in another lifetime.


My beautiful daughter

Looks Amazing at 24 weeks.

My Afternoon

Cookies for Teacher Appreciation Week.

I used the red ribbon, thinking it resembled school.
Its looking more like something for Christmas.
Oh well,
Its the thought that counts.

Left over cookies for my Hubby.
He was sooooo happy when he saw these.

My Morning

My breakfast.
Peanut butter and black cherry jam.

Fresh picked carrots and beets.

Cleaned carrots.

Cleaned carrots and beets.

A proud beet moment.
Don't you just love the color of this beet?

I love to save the tops of the beets and carrots and  make arrangements.
They are so pretty.

Its been a good morning.
