My pretty flowers!

I love my garden!!
Uncle Sam was found in the crawl-space under my father's home...I took it home with me last trip up. My grandfather made him and it was his mailbox for many years. It is now on my front porch holding a plant. Uncle Sam must be at least 50 years old, if not older, I remember him when I was in kindergarten many, many moons ago.

I'm So Happy!!!

To make an old story short, my wedding gown has been found, it was NOT sold to a Thrift Shop.
I have fetched it up and it is now our family's heirloom ( I hope).
My friend Jean is an avid quilter and she has made it into a ring bearers are the photos of my transformed wedding gown.

It's been so long...

I have really been neglecting my blog lately. But there are good reasons. First is Daughter #2 is getting married this August, and don't ya know that takes alot of time & money ( more money than time ,I regret to say).

Husband & I have been traveling to Vermont and looking at houses , desperately trying to find exactly what we want. Why, you ask??? Well Finally he is RETIRING as of August 1st!!! Can't wait! Oh man, to live the quiet life and get AWAY from this rat-race of a county we live in...all I want is a peaceful life. He has 7 weeks vacation time then when he pulls his pension he cannot work for 6 months. After that he may want to work *part-time* for his company doing consulting. But, when he is off 6 months he is going to build a home on our Hebron property as we cannot find exactly what we are looking for. The only minor downside is that being I own a business on the property we live on now, my business & our home will have to go on the market..which is fine but I am guesstimating it will take 2 to 3 years to sell.......:(((
But, all in all I am so happy, for him, me ,and the new adventure. I cannot wait to make jams, jellies, work in my flower gardens, knit more, listen to the birds sing in the morning, and tend to the farm animals!!!! It can't come soon enough for me!

It Is Car Show Season

Super-Sized Grannies!

First granny is one that I am making out of some yarn stash that I've had for awhile. I am going to keep going 'till it will cover my entire bed!

The other two are ones that my Mother made back in the 1970's

This last one is one that I bought at a Thrift Shop last year for $10!!!! It is in need of minor repair but I love it!
