Menopausal, insomniatic, romantic, left handed,right brained & more than likely a bit ADD. Mother of two whom have left the nest.
I live in a little 90 something bungalow in a Historic district, with a heck of a commute to work (3blocks, all down hill.!!
Share my cozy home with 4 critters.Two dogs-Golden Retriever and Black lab & two Tuxedo kitties. They see fit to let me decorate however I choose and never question what's in the bags I bring home-unless it appears to be edible or squeaky.
The whole blog/art thingy started kind of by accident a couple years ago-it has just grown exponentially!Love it ALL,,women I've met, and trying new things! Not getting rich selling my creations, but again, it has grown exponentially and I have product in several shops in Washington-Too fun!
NOT doing Etsy right now, BUT if you see something you like, let me know, Happy to make something special.
Thanks for stopping by!
I could look at this picture and say,,"Oh my, I have 3 Chins!!" Well maybe I do, and I should probably work on it more,,,,But look at who I'm with! My Sweet, dear talented friend Deb Bock,,,And look at the VIEW! And look at that SUN! (Trust me, we don't take that Sun for granted around these parts!)Deb's having the busiest time of her year with Weddings,,,,and also working at "M&M Antiques" in Monroe after their move to their fabulous new location and preparing for their Grand opening!
And I don't mean to ......
But we found some fun stuff today,,,,,and had the best of laughs! I always love it when I can spend time with Deb! And today we had the whole day! And between the two of us, we got some awesome stuff!!
My first find were these great "Vocab" Cards.......Love these!
I found a couple of great suitcases,,,,,,and NO, they don't even smell like "Grandma's Basement!"
A perfect condition "tooled leather" purse......
This awesome Tin,,,,,which is also "tooled" or looks like leather over a metal tin,,,I've never seen one like it...Made in Chicago and in great shape!
Some Turquoise hot pads,,,,with creme and gold threads,,,,great shape! 25 cents
Some fun little Whimsical finds that were "Free" with some of my other purchaces......

Also got a fun old Columbia Record Case (you can see it behind a couple images) a great little side table, and a few other things. ..
All in all, I feel.....

(Right AFTER I posted this, I had a long Convo with my Dear Sister in law Mary. She's doing well! As well as anyone can expect after having part of the spine removed and replaced. After having a KIDNEY removed,,,,,,riddled with Cancer. She's doing Good,,,,so far,,no more Cancer at this point,,,,no further treatments, pain is managed and the drugs are now minimal. She "sounds" like my "Old" Mary. I'm trying to go see her on Wed or Thursday and share books, and laughs and just MAYBE, PLAN on her coming to see my Show at Island Chicks Next month. Please OH Please Dear Lord. If Only for a few hours,,,,,,Let us have some "Normal" Junkin' Show time together!! I miss that SO! I will NEVER, EVER assume that someone I LOVE or care about is going to BE THERE!!) Please keep her in your thoughts and Prayers,,,,,and that we get this Time together and a bit of normalcy!)
"Last night, my kids and I were sitting in the living room and I said to them, 'I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependant on some machine & fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just pull the plug.'
They got up, unplugged the computer and threw out my wine!
They are SO on my sh*t list!'"
Seemed like a good ideat at the time

Is this a BAD sign?
It's a Full moon tonight and my son brought over takeout Chinese food. Should I take it as a BAD sign that my dog ate MY fortune cookie,,,,fortune and all???
Decided I'd love the Job!
Ever thought about applying for the job to be the one who gets to design the new words that we type into the security code boxes to get our posts through?
I think it would be a whoot! I think my first word would be geebitz or whrylstra or bezanorz.
What would YOU dream up?
