Remember Hedy?

She was not just beautiful!  Interesting book.  (That's Hedy Lamarr, for you youngsters.)
Very short Stephen Kingish, but a kinda sweet story.  Read one sitting.

Thrift Saturday

I found this bag of odds and ends at Value World today.  It looked like a big ol' tangle of thread and unknown sewing objects.  I was so surprised when the blue shoe fell out. It is about 10 inches long and so pretty.

The bag was five dollars and now I have some knitting brochures (I don't knit), scads of embroidery thread (very seldom do that either), some snaps, elastic, hoops, patches, ribbon, a cute little box and some garters!!!!

But best of all I have a blue shoe!

I love crochet, but can't do it.  So I connive to have others do it for me. (this may have cost me some friends).   My latest victim is Beth and she just made these little jar covers for me. 

Happy Tuesday.

Super Sunday

Feeling like spring today!  Flea Market Gardening is one of my favorites online.  Hope your Sunday is super.

Graye's Greenhouse

 We still call it Mrs. Graye's and probably always will, but this beautiful place is now under new ownership. 

Sad, that the family will no longer be there when we visit, but happy that the new owner will be continuing to operate this fantastic place.

 The day we visited, an estate sale was being held and this was my favorite thing to take home.
I also got some lovely vintage crochet and sheet music and old photographs.
This little worn book was in with some other items.  I love it, it is the words of Jesus, the four gospels and was owned by Margaret Plumsteel. It has notations in the front and back of it.  I can imagine how much she treasured it.

I have often written about Graye's Greenhouse on Joy Road, if you love succulents, it is the place to go. We are so happy, it is going to continue and grow.

It is very cold here in Michigan.  I hope you are warm.

Last Santa 2018

I made him from a Crows Roost design.  He is my last hurrah for this year.  Looks like he is soooo relieved that I am not making any more.

I think he has been on a KETO diet don't you?

I hope you all are prepared and looking forward to a beautiful Christmas.  I'm looking online for a church that sings Christmas carols.  Wish me luck there!

Be blessed and happy!  Love from Michigan!
