All Around Post - Of Course

This morning when I got up  to fix my coffee I looked  at the temp thingy on the deck, 17 degrees! I always wanted a big room like this below with a fireplace. I actually like this one below better. Built ins are great. Could crank up that fireplace and move the chairs around more.. I would be a happy  camper! Stop dreaming ~ for one, I don't have that much space. I don't have a fireplace. I don't even have room to put one of those electric like  fireplaces. Okay....back to reality. HAHA...saw that this morn on FB. When looking for pics of mom for the funeral home I realized that mom hated to have her pic made. So wonder if that is where I  got it from. Found this one, love it. My sis in law loved this pic of mom also so I gave it to her. I think she is going to have a larger print made from it. So pretty.   One thought I had when my son was staying with me when he c

I felt TERRIBLE.  Anyway, for lack of not getting out, and not taking pics I decided to do a post of things I used to do. I have been a crafter for as long as I can remember. I started with (I think) embroidery. Aunt Martha iron on's were my friend. These had cool patterns. I used to embroidery on my jeans. I even did an eagle (I think it was) on the back of my brothers blue jean jacket.  Course I did pillow cases, little hand towels... just whatever I could get a needle through. From there I want to say  (memory sucks)  I went to beads. One Christm
