The ham is finished.

Easter is over now, and for me it is time to get myself in gear and do some finishing (of cross stitch), sorting all media, sorting scrapbooks and journals and in short, plan the rest of this month, year, and era. I'm going to start just posting some random pictures of projects and places.  These are all fairly recent and don't need too much explanation. 
 The needlework is ready to be framed. I'm taking that back to NY to search for the perfect frame.  The others pics are from our recent trip to Key West.   A wonderful butterfly garden. So beautiful.

I hope to post about weekly and include all the interesting things that might be happening.  My feelings will come forward too at times, but mostly it will be about what the progress is on my various and vast projects.

I'd love to hear from you. And if you do comment thanks.  See you soon.

Me and my Buddy..

We are joined at the hip, my buddy and me.  From day one we have been having fun together. Sometimes going somewhere special, or just hanging around our home or yard.  Recently we got back from a two week vacation and just jumped back into the daily routine like no "big" deal.  It is a wonderful gift I will never get over receiving. Thanks Phil, you are my best Buddy and always will be.

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.
