No time like today!

Christmas is coming fast.
I'm using my blog to document my décor and the new direction I want to go in decorating
Most of my things, I have had forever some are new to me but not new.  I have a couple of neat shops that I tap for fun and finds.

We are moving furniture out to our "Florida Room".  Most of the stuff we bought when we thought we would only be here in the winter.  I was going modern then.

I'' post pictures of that tomorrow.  I'm thinking it will be good for stitching and watching Netflix.
I'm also going to post my craft finishes.  Stitching knitting and paper crafts. 
Thanks for stopping by.

Why I blog

I'm trying to keep track of my hobbies and travel and health.  I especially want to document my ongoing progress of long term things like my scrapbooks.  With that said I must close and get going on those things.

Another long ago picture I didn't remember ever being made.

 Phil and I going to a prom.  Probably his brother's junior prom in 1963..  I know it wasn't my junior prom or senior ball as my mom made both outfits and this is my only store bought prom dress. 
 I always look for the patterns that my mom used for those dresses.. How magical to be able to see the way we looked on that day.
I saved every corsage that I was ever given.  I'm sure Phil's mom picked them out and they were very special.  Well thanks for stopping by tomorrow or Sunday I'll be posting my latest stitching finishes.  I have been stitching up a storm and loving every minute of it.. Happy Trails until we meet again.

Birthday Wishes for my Husband

 Today is my husband Phil's 70th Birthday.  It has been a wonderful journey that we have been on.  He is a terrific man, a super father and has always made me feel like a queen.  We have been together for a long time, since high school.  We are the cliché' childhood sweethearts.  I'm so glad we are.
 Phil, his mother Bettie and me in 1965 before he was off to serve 2 years in the US Army including a year in Viet Nam. I was always very proud he did his duty, but still it was a very long wait until he returned.. We were engaged before he returned and married in the fall of '66.

Heading Home

Just a brief note to say that I am very excited to be heading home to Florida and our little house and yard.  It has been a great summer in many ways, and now it is time to get back to routines.  I have always loved this time of  year.  A new beginning of sorts.  I have a million plans for crafting decorating and arranging when I do get there.  Now that we know where and how we will be spending our summers away from Florida we can manage what we brought down there after our home was sold last year. 

So my friends please stay tuned for some new ideas and as always cross stitch doings and finishes. I am definitely doing some today as I work on the packing and arranging here in the camper, 

Thanks for stopping and stay well.

50th Reunions Lasting Memories

This is just a very brief note to say that this year marked the 50th anniversary of my high school graduations.  We as a class have had many reunions, but this one was very, very special.
I'm including the picture of some of my high school friends at our Senior Ball.  We were the first class to wear long gowns to the formal dance.  Our class did have quite a few firsts.


Ready for what we called "Class Night".  50 Years ago before we graduated our class hosted a night of remembering.  We presented a gift to the school and did small skits.  Our theme was the World Fair of '64.  The arrow is pointing to our exchange student, the first for our small school.  I'll be adding these precious pics to my book of scraps of my class and other things from that time in my life.  Thanks for stopping by.
