Dolls of my Past

One of my first and my all time favorite
doll was 
Miss Peep.

Here is a pic I pulled off the internet..

And here is mine.

I got Miss Peep when I
was in Kindergarten, so lets just say
that was a LONG time ago....
Right at 
50 years ago.

Then the next in line is 
my Vogue Ginny doll.
See I still have her too.

Neither doll is in their clothes they
came with but my mom
made both these outfits.

Always wanted to have hair like
my Chrissy doll had!

Then comes some of my FAV



And Skipper. 

These are all pulled from the
internet but...
I still have some of them packed
up. I played many
days in the corner of the living
room with my Barbies.

Now for stuff animals I still 
My bunny. Given to me
by a guy I dated for over 2 yrs. 
He gave me this for our 8 month

But then there is this.
Mom got me this, I think with
box tops  or stamps you could send
in and they would send things you
I got this in my early teens.

Zebra - The Painting

Today is Sunday and 
I was doing a teaching 
class for my friend 

Teaching and helping her
though a painting she wanted
to do.

This was what Debbie
was wanting to paint.

And this is what I worked
while Debbie
was painting.

Not like most paintings I do but
I love it.
It was a lot of fun.

Took a couple of days to work
on my walk in pantry.
Believe me, it was in bad 
need of needing organizing.

Picked two of these up at Lowe's.

One for skillets and I flipped the other
one to lay down to slide cookie sheets
and broiler pans in.

I have used Rubbermaid containers 
to put my recycling in but I decided
to try something different.

Thought one of these would work 
great....a laundry sorter.

But I got to Walmart and saw this one.
It pops up and folds back down.

And they work great.
Mesh so the stuff can breath, 
and handles for caring.

Took the recycling off yesterday and these 
worked amazingly.

Boot Cuffs

Perfect width.

Some hand sewing and buttons

boot cuffs.

The Chair- Photo Prop

In June I started a project that
I did not finish until this Sunday.

I was waiting to find what I wanted
to cover the seat in.

This is how it started.

Took it apart and painted it.

Thought the red would pop.

Here is it after I have finished it.

The cover was a pillow sham I picked up
at my nieces yard sale. 

I think it turned out really nice.
Can't wait till my next shoot to use it.

Christmas Cactus

These pics were taken in November
but I was excited that my plant
was blooming close to

And to this date, still blooming.

Check out that bright color. I am
not a pink person but this is
still pretty to me.

Dirty Santa / White Elephant Gift

 For our family get together
at Christmas time the adults
play Dirty Santa or
to some it's called
White Elephant.
Every year I have a hard time
picking out something
to take for the game but
this year I went to
and looked up Dirty Santa
I loved this idea...

I took white peel and stick
letters and put them
to the front of a wash pan.
I added canned ham, pickles, apple
and cherry pie, crackers, peanuts,
cheese puffs, two cokes,
a roll of paper towels and
to Redneck Wine
glasses (that I made).
I think it was a hit with Cobi, my nephew
that ended up with it!
