Oh how exciting to come to my blog and see so many of my friends sending messages almost like chatting or coming home:)Thank you for leaving a message.
I didn't get to the blog yesterday the kids come over (Tatum and family)we had a great visit , I am so in love with those babies it is unreal.We love to have them over or any company so anyone want to visit:)I forgot pictures again, dang it.We loved having Linda and David.
Mary O. I don't really have much to say either but just daily life.Maybe all I will have to do is print this out for a Christmas letter roflol!!! that I have never done but who knows LOL
I went to our only dept. store Yonkers today looking around at the makeup (Clinque)the lady set me down and went to work I felt drab and I must have looked that way. I call it washed out LOL...I have never had someone so nice and helpful she seem to really injoy her job.( Judi she was in the army 4 yrs ago,she made me think of you very pretty and together) When she finished I was amazed what she did for so little I told her I wanted real natural colors.No base makeup, she had this big brush and bronzed away.I bought everything she used encluding all the brushes. Oh and this little tube of cream you dab above your upper lip removes wrinkles.. yea right hahahaha but she was just good at this stuff. Al was amused but really like what she did.This all is very unlike me but it was a good pick me up.
I have been kinda down lately I'm having BP problems that they keep saying will take a while for this new med to work.I put it down as another age thingie.Oh my I am not the sickie type and do not like medications.
I come home and cleaned up all my flower beds I always do gardening when I am dwelling on something keeps my mind busy.
We have a full bath upstairs can't wait to take very own tub NO SHOWER woohoo..
I was called to jury duty for the month of August what a bummer, so we have postponed our little get away to Eureka Springs AR. until Oct.I love that town and can't wait. I am hoping they have a few craft shows going I think Oct. is a good month for such..
Thank y'all for your nice comments I can't wait to show my Gypsy doll and was going to put her up but Sherry said I couldn't:( You know when you make something or I do I just want to show everyone not digging for compliments I just get so excited ....
I do have a pic to put up this little table is built into my cabinet in my sewing room for my keyboard,it was so ugly I decided to cover it it buttons, now all I need is to paint the edges and put a two part apoxie, I want the finsh to be thick and clear.This idea comes from HGTV I love that show!!

Catching up!!

Thank you everyone for your nice comments on my blog.
I think I will just write something on this blog daily,I am not on many list anymore so this gives me an out.
I had a wonderful visit from auntie Linda and David but just way too short I had so many things planned but will have to make up for it on a later date. It was just the perfect visit. One thing for sure we was not short for words and I got lots of hugs. The only thing I regret I took NO pictures well duh!! I was just so excited it never cross my mind.
I put up 5 bags of sweet corn today and kept out some for dinner tonight. This is just the beginning I hope to have the freezer full soon.If you have never had Iowa sweet corn you are really missing out. I wish I could send y'all some.

I am busy also doing an article and the how to for my pin/ornament dolls for the magazine DollCrafter. This article will come out in Dec.
I have also finished my doll for the Gypsy Challenge I call her Dance Gypsy Dance, I am pleased with the way she turned out. I love the beautiful fabrics and wonderful embellishments I got to work with.It was a lot of fun and I do love the challenge.
