Halloween Dress Up - 2013

Have you seen Dispecible Me?
I have not but the office wanted
to dress like that today.
I am Ms. Hattie, I own the orphanage.
~Left to Right~
Ms. Hattie (me)
Now I think I got really close to what Ms. Hattie
looked like in the movie..
don't you?

This below is a couple pics of me in
This is my old friend - Rag a Muffin.
Rag a Muffin has been with me
for years.
I use to go children's birthday parties for

I have long gotten rid of the outfit, keeping
the wig, the hat and of course
remembering how to do my makeup.
But.....I am doing an opening for a clinic tonight
dressed like Rag a Muffin.
I will be wearing Ms. Hattie's outfit
but adding some colorful things
to it.
Should be fun.
A couple of years ago I dressed like this.

Man, I was HOT!
I worked in the Medicaid unit at
the time so this just seemed to fit.

Then later in the day I had
a chiropractor appt.
I went in doing the old woman talk,
acting old and calling everyone a
young whippersnapper!
Had a blast.
This is Gayle, and she is the sister
oh my chiropractor plus
she works there. Such a doll.

Then there is Trent AKA Olive Oil.
Had the sexiest hairy legs!

The Pole and the Lantern

Back several months ago I posted
this pic below~
My brother had this out at his house
in his recycle metal pile. He found it on
the side of the road to be thrown away.
I have been looking at it for years wanting
it but I was kind of waiting to see what
he was going to do with it....
Finally I asked could I have it and
I promised to recycle ......or
better yet, reuse it!
I thought maybe it would make an
awesome lamp holding a solar light
to put in the back yard....
But how would I do that.
I have been looking for one
of these that I thought was
the perfect size.

Found this at Ole Time Pottery today
at lunch time.
Now to figure out how to attach it.
I have some ideas so this
post will be continued yet again!
Stay tuned.
Thanks for stopping in,

Caleb's Birthday Surprise

School started and Caleb started it
as a 7th,
where have the years gone?
He wanted to take guitar in school
and he was really stoked about it.
My mother, his great grandmother
made him a deal, work hard to
keep grades up and I will get you
your own guitar.
Grades are doing really good.
He is doing well in school.
So for his birthday great
granny and me (Nana, grandma)
went in together to get him this~
I managed to sneak it to the living room
while granny kept him busy in the
He looks over to see the case,
"whose guitar?"
When told it was his I snapped this

"Really he ask?"
At which point we say that we got
the case this yr. and next maybe
he can get the guitar!

"Really, it's mine"?

So excited. He takes it out and
sets it on the couch to
just look at it.

Now he is showing us what he knows.

Seems to have been learning some

And he looks like a pro handling it.

Looks like he knows what he is doing.

Love the smile here on this one...

I think he was a happy 13 year old!

Senior Class Pics

I have been so busy!
Not crafting but with photo
I just finished editing on my
second shoot last night.
And I have a shoot coming up
Saturday for my chiropractor's
office and a fall festival he
is putting on.
Should be fun.
This is Savannah Ward.
Her mother and I went to the
same school (yrs, and yrs. ago)!!
Her mom actually graduated a couple
of years after me.
Savannah was a great model for shooting.
Not afraid of the camera at all.
I am posting this from work today
so I do not have any more pics of
her to post right now.
I really try to not post on FB or anywhere
many until the parents have the disc.
Mom has not been able to meet with
me to get it yet.
Anyway, I caught this look when she
was messing with her mom!
Next we have Kati.
She was a hoot.

Also not afraid of the camera and not shy at
all. She loved to make faces and
play around.
This her and her mom.

This is her making a face at
her boyfriend and mom.

The boyfriend...perfect together.
Both just a like when it comes to
the pics!

Kati is also the daughter of a guy that
went to school at the same place I did.
I want to say he was 5 yrs younger but
I graduated with his sis.
More to come later once disc are
given out.
Thanks for stopping in,

NAiA Pow Wow at Long Hunter State Park - Lebanon TN

Been years since I have attended a
Pow Wow.
Long before I had a professional camera.
So I went Saturday just mainly for taking pics.
What I will do for a good picture...
like go out in the misting rain, cold wind
blowing and temps cool...
But I enjoyed it.
I remember when I was a child and our house was
new, we could go in the backyard and find
arrowheads and Indian money all the time.

This is Duane Windhorse Deemer.
I met Duane in the spring at the
art crawl I was a part of.
He was playing flutes....such
beautiful relaxing music.

More arrowheads.

Red, white and blue-
Native American Women Warriors.
To cute.

Here I was in a teepee looking out
the top. friend Theresa is being taught
how to throw a hatchet.
Watch out!

This was the best throw and it was
her third throw!

Colors of the Native American
wear are very colorful.

LOL.....well, this pic above just did not
look right! Blows
your whole image of sleeping in a
teepee which is basically
an old Native American tent...
Now, I wonder which one they
slept in Friday night?


I looked around and saw
Grizzly Adams!

Thanks for stopping in.
Hope you enjoyed.
