Throw Back Thursday - 1978

Yep....that was me!
brown hair!
This was taken in Oct. 1978 at
Centennial Park in Nashville TN.
at the WLAC Multiple Sclerosis event.
This is DJ Captain Sunshine from WLAC.
And this is Donny Osmond!
He flew in while on honeymoon
to give a short talk and out again
he went.
Great Day.
And even Soleil Moon Frye from
Punky Brewster
was there that day.
Thanks for stopping in,

More Quotes, The Cold and Caleb

More quotes from PINTEREST!
I had to save this one...
it is so me on any given day!
I am always telling my friends this so I
saved this one for them...
I actually found tis one on facebook
this morning...
I smiled as I read it, I also was
shaking my head yes to
each comment.
I did them all.

Oh no....someone has been
watching me!
I have crafts unfinished also along
with the laundry, and dishes.
Ask my mom, when I lived at home I
starts so many things and some are
still not finished to this day!

On this one though, my camera seems
to call me away more these days then
the crafts do.
Yep, you got it.

the cold has us all in its grips!
I shot this back in the summer at an art crawl.
I love it.
I remember a time when attending a party
of a woman that I took painting
with, someone asked me if
I was an artist too. I replied
with, "well I do paint"...
and at that time I feel an elbow in my back,
I turn and my teacher says, " Yes, she
is an artist," then looks at me
and says, "I don't ever want to
hear you say that you are not".
We lost my teacher last year but she
will always be carried in my heart!

Choo Choo!

And it has happened.
Hell froze over!

Yesterday the winter snow front came
through, it went below Nashville and
above Nashville.
We did not even get flurries...
but Atlanta got hit hard.

I think Mother Nature is Bi-Poplar and
really does need meds!
Sunday we were 63 and this morning
(Wed) when I left the house,
4 degrees!
Last quote...
so true.
I love to sing.
Can't carry a tune in a bucket
or out...
but I love to sing when no
one is around!
Makes me happy so that
is all that matters!
I love Raisin Bran cereal....
and I love milk but recently
I have taken to buying and drinking
Blue Diamond Almond Breeze...
Vanilla or Almond flavor.
I love it!
It you have not tried it please do.

I had my grandson, Caleb with me
Saturday and Sunday....
Oh my gosh, 13 yr old teen that
talks non stop!
Now to admit, my Christmas tree was
still up.
I took the ornaments off weeks ago
but I needed help getting the tree
back in storage.
Thanks Caleb!
But of course, he had to play before
putting the tree in the box.


The cold has gotten my dog
Course being spoiled don't help
This morning as I am getting ready for work.
I wished I could continue to lay there
under the cover and sleep....
I had to push him to get him up
to go. 
Last night him and I were veggie on the couch.
I had the electric throw out and on, laying on
it and covered with the throw.
Dakota was laying at my feet, I
under the cover and on the throw...
I heard a loud sigh and out crawling on
his belly he comes.
Got hot I guess!

And this is the ride to grandma's house
for the day.
He is on his pillow, two throws and
the heat on him...

Thank you for stopping,

Words of Wisdom, Quotes and What Knots from Pinterest and Email

I love to go to quote section and
read the quotes.
But then again I have
found some interesting ones
in email also!
Okay, good question.
Surely they are not still using the SEARS
I love it!
At this age, I will be dead by the time
mine is born and grows up!

One of my favs. I love BUBBLE WRAP!
Use to keep some in my desk at work
so that I could use it as a stress
someone tick you off,
out of the drawer it comes...
But with me working at a law enforcement
company this is not really wise to
just pull out and start popping.

Yes, yes, yes...
I agree.
Where did I put my hammer? 
I actually feel that way when I go
to the chiropractor..

I have been seeing Keep Calm quotes
and saying all over PINTEREST
for awhile but this one really
spoke to me.
I am a total Wizard of Oz fan!

I love my nieces and nephews.
My niece Jessica told me a month
or so ago that I was flamboyant!
I liked that word.
Then I was on PINTEREST and I
found this. I thought since my mom
has called me a gypsy before and
Jessica thinks I am flamboyant that
this fit too!

Can it be I am a flamboyant bohemian gypsy?
It must be the artist in me!
Or am I offbeat?
An oddball?
Who knows? 
Enough said. 
I try, daily and I think I do a
fair to really good job.

Oops, has mine been inspiring?
Maybe, I had a paper written on
me about, "who would you like
to see on the postage stamp"....
I have that framed and it hangs in
my spare room.
That came from my nephew,
the brother of the niece that thinks
I am flamboyant!...
Thanks Sean.

The days of me dreaming BIG....have passed.
I try to sparkle but I think I need to add
more sequins and beads!
And I will continue to shine bright!

Thanks for stopping in,
Come again soon,

A week ago I introduced you to Chelsea.
I have photographed Chelsea several
times in the past.
Always a pleasure.
These are some of the shots we
got the other day.

Love the barn setting and the out shoots
Forever thank you to my brother Ray for
allowing me the use of his land for my

The kids really love the window at the top
of the barn.

This guy that Chelsea is kissing
is her boyfriend of
two years.

The manly shot!
No clue what he was thinking at
this point.

Off to college for
Dustin at least.
Chelsea will be attending
college around home.

Thanks Chelsea for allowing me to
photograph you again and I am

Throw Back Thursday

Love the Throw Back Thursday
thing that folks do on
so I decided to
bring it here to my blog.
Thursday January 23, 2014
Me, and that would be my brother Ray
playing in the sand behind me.
Truth be known, he probably threw
sand in my eyes, made me cry and turned
around and started playing again!
Just kidding!
We are a beach in San Diego California.
My dad was in the Navy and he was
stationed here.
Thinking that I must not have liked
the sand on my hands...oh
how things change!
I love the sand now esp
to bury my feet in on a warm day!
Thanks for stopping in,
please come again,

Habitat for Humanity Rehab Restore

I really like this store but my visit
on Saturday to the Lebanon store
did not produce much in what I
But I do have some pics of
some things I saw.
Look at all these. Did not get
any of them since I have a "few"
at the house already. Need to use
what I have before purchasing more!
You know...LIMITED
LOVED this window. Almost got
it but decided against it.
 I could see this as being a door
to a nice cabinet but....I would
have the build the cabinet and
unlike Gail over at My Repurposed
Life -
I don't have the building talent that
she does. This is a window that
I could see her making a cabinet
for it to fit!
Drawers, drawers and more drawers.
I love the shelves that I see these used
as on PINTEREST. I had been wanting
one for a long time and about a yr ago
I found one on the side of the road....
and it is at this point still on the bookcase
in the craft room.....just where
I put it when I found it.
So, no, I did not purchase any drawers
or cabinet doors, since I still have
some I have yet to use.

Knobs and hinges.

Windows and doors....

Wished I could have thought of something
for this....
course I would want to put it outside
to rust a bit before using it.

Showed you what I did not get so now
I will show the little bit I did
4x4 tiles.
5 for a $1.00

Makes great coasters. 
Two white glass knobs.
And these little spindle wooden
Now, I wonder how long they will
sit and wait to be used?

After that adventure off to Kmart my
friend Theresa and Debbie went.
I saw the most comfortable sofa
so yes, I had to sit and try it out...
and prop my feet....or one up!

Thanks for going to the rehab store with
us. Come visit again,
