Stella

My friend Stella died on June 4 and I will surely miss her.  She has been the sweetest and most interesting friend to me.  She made beautiful art with her crochet needle and every time I saw her, she always asked about my family members and my garden.

She always got it right and never missed a beat.  I think  her love and interest in others, was what sustained her.  I believe she is going to go right on keeping track of all of us!

Thank you for reading my post about Stella.

June 1 Flowers

This is the second year for this iris, the first year to bloom.  I bought it at the Ann Arbor farmers market.  I wish I could tell you its name.  It is so blue it is almost black.
 This one is my Beverly Sills from Kynda, and it gets to be on the blog every year.  It is almost finished blooming for now.
 I made this little flag and a few more for the craft mall.  They didn't sell lol.  But I like mine in my new hosta spot under the dogwood tree.
This is an aulium and the prettiest one I have. Thank you for walking through my garden this June lst.

Looking at flowers



After so much rain, it is easier to get the weeds.  I should be out there now, but no, I'm drinking coffee and saying good morning to you all.  Have a happy day.

At Town Peddler Craft and and Antique Mall, Livonia, MI

 I have a thing for tins and this one is very unique. 
 Probably about 18 X 16 with lid, may 6 inches deep.
 Display including the tin.  Very cool.
This last picture is something I made for this week, hope you can read the words.
Have faith!

Good book

A new book at the Library network. Very good read!
Hang in there everyone!
I bought this dress at the Farm and waited for something to come along to wear it.  Yesterday I thought it was time to garden, today...not so much.  Happy day everyone.

Mildred, Alma, Neen and Peggy collaboration

A few days ago I posted a picture of a baby dress that belonged to Mildred Giles which was passed down to her daughter, Alma, who passed it down to my friend Neen.

Neen wanted to do something nice with the dress to remember her wonderful friend Alma, so she
asked that I offer it for sale to benefit the Walk for Diabetes fund that her family participates in every year.

I hope my decision to make a doll to wear the dress was the right one, so we will see.  Except for adding some ribbons to the bonnet that she holds, I didn't make any changes.  I made her slip and pantaloons from some soft vintage fabric.and there is a little scrap of lace that I added to her hair. I will be taking her to Town Peddler for their Spring Open House this week.

I hope your Sunday is much blessed.  My whole week has certainly been, things have gone well.  Love to everyone.

Lisa's Keto Lasagna

I love handwritten recipes.  This one was originally on Pinterest but Lisa has made it several times and wrote this out from memory.  We love it and you wouldn't even know it is absent the noodles.

The Wednesday Wind was tremendous here, 800,000 people were said to be without power.  I was lucky to have mine.  Schools are closed and traffic lights out.  Scary. Much better this morning.
