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.

Where we landed and other things.

Just to let you know that we have landed in a good place.  We were lucky to get a rather new 5th wheel and soon after that found a great place to park it. It has all the bells and whistles, including a fireplace, which we are using as it has been rather cool here.  I'm going to try walking to the nearest restaurant later.  I don't think it is even one mile away.  We are located near a small city with great places to see and frequent.  I'm returning to blogging as a way to stay in touch and also to monitor my eating and stitching.  I'll catch up on that later.  Until then keep safe and warm or cool, whichever. Thanks for stopping by.

Updated pictures of our home, needlework and Happy Easter.

 They started on the front of our house.  We weren't too happy about that, but a start is good.  The siding is gray and we will use white trim with black shutters when the work is done.  We will continue the white brick skirting around the whole house.  That may be in the future. 
 This will look so good when we have a chance to fix up the areas around the house with simple landscaping.

 Here is the sampler I'm working on.  I have a lot more done, this pic is old. Tomorrow I'll be working on it all day.  I know this will go in our bedroom near pictures of my beloved that are pretty far away.
I wish this little guy was real chocolate, but alas he is a very good (resin) ? bunny. 
Hoping and praying all your Easter wishes and hopes and prayers are answered.  With love and warm wishes to all.

Update Where did March go.

 Sorry for the rather bad picture.  This is not the progress that is current, but it is a try at letting you see what I'm working on now.
 This is my Sheep framed and up on the wall.  It all happened when I went "home" for a visit.  I was so thrilled to bring it back to Florida with me.
 This is how our front yard is shaping up for Spring.  I like the combination of pink dark purple white and green.
Finally God Bless America.  I like to display my metal flag.  Here it in the pot with some lilies.
Thanks for stopping by. Stay safe.

Craft Closet Redo

This is part of the reorganization that I have been attempting.  In this space I have some scrapping items.  Many of the important items for scrapping are in my take along totes that I take to our weekly meetings.  I do some at home also, when I use my Cricket and Big Shot machine.
 In the drawers I have sewing scissors, attachments for my machine and some of my reference books.  I have a drawer devoted to smash books and one for painting and another for misc. things.  My knitting work, yarn and patterns are in the three green soft side boxes on top of the shelf.
I'm still working on the final touches and labels.  The rest of the space I use for storing my in process and finished scrapbooks.  When I finish the ones I am working on, I won't be doing any more.  Maybe small books or more smash books.. Well thanks for looking and tomorrow I'll be posting my Feb. Santa and the progress on the sheep.  Thanks for looking. Stay safe and warm.
