I've been meeting up with blogger friends. We got a new puppy (more on that later). Summer is whizzing past. I haven't felt like blogging.... Continue reading

I think I have told you that I have a "black thumb." But I have two things that I appear to be able to grow....roses and lavender. Last year, I planted two lavender bushes along my front sidewalk. I thought they would smell so nice when someone approaches the front... Continue reading

Hi Everyone, Making a quick post as I eat my lunch at my desk today. :-) When I was sick, one thing I found was that rug hooking was really relaxing and something I could focus on. So, one day, I finished my little wool rug! It turned out pretty... Continue reading

Thanks again for all your well wishes, everyone. I'm starting to feel better, and now the trick is to not overdo it and get sick again, right? :-) Sweet Pea and I had a nice trip to Florida, although she came down with pneumonia while we were there, so that... Continue reading

Hi Everyone! I hope you are doing well. Sorry again for my absence....Remember in my last blog post how I said I wasn't feeling well? That persisted, and when I went to the doctor (the second time), she told me I had pneumonia. Ouch. So, I've sort of been down... Continue reading

I woke up the other morning and put on my favorite jeans, and much to my horror, I discovered a hole had formed right on my left hip of my jeans. I gasped! Could it be time to get rid of these jeans, finally? But I love these jeans! Sweet... Continue reading

Oh, that is just great. I wish I had your flair for growing things and for designing the gardens and displays!
P.S. I love the suitcases. Did you cover them yourself? I want to do that to a train case I have. Am wondering about the best product to use. Advice?
