Who I am: Sometimes blonde, sometimes brunette, more and more grey - born and raised in PA; overweight outside but a skinny person on the inside! I like to read, knit, bead, decorate, listen to music and be with my family. I do not like cleaning, doing laundry, grocery shopping or people who lie. When I grow up I want to be anything but an ACCOUNTANT! Maybe I'll be a gardener or artist...someday...when I grow up. What I love being is a mom and wife and daughter and sister and friend and now new grandmother (mimi).
Interests: knitting, gardening, soccer, sewing, spending time with my family

Love the turquoise door. This is actually a color I am trying to add to my kitchen. My inspiration color is from a McCoy Pottery teapot/creamer/sugar set I inherited from my great-grandfather. But what I really love in your room is the necklace holder. Any tutorials on how you made this - or did you purchase it?

Dried apple slices are very easy to do...either with a dehydrator or just on regular oven racks. Go for it!

Glad you were able to get your shawl back on your needles. Sounds like an adventure with airport security.
