I am ready to do battle...I have a handbook to help me. My newest gnome is watching from the poinsettia. (Hand painted by Skyler)!

A Tree Skirt....

The pattern sat for a year or so, then it was started but not finished for quite a while. There probably should have been more stars and animals had we not cheated, but it was declared to be finished last(?) Christmas. I think there is enough there to tell the story.
Happy Thursday.

Thank you....

Just a note to say thank you for all your comments. You are such good friends.
We all visited at Sara's home with her husband, Floyd and her family that were there. I'm just sharing a little picture of something she had sitting by the fireplace. I don't know how many years ago it was that I made it, but her special favorites were always Americana.

Thank you again all.

Remembering Sara......

Sara came into my life about twenty five years ago when my daughter PJ and her son, Jeff married. She has been my friend and we are going to miss her. She loved her big family and her kitty and her many friends.

She was always painting....ceramics, pictures and clothing, jackets and Tees that we loved. The pictures are of a nativity set that she made. I think it is beautiful.

Tonight after everyone left for the visitation I unpacked it and set it up in PJ's antique cabinet. There was a star that I didn't know how to attach and some shepherds hooks that PJ will have to add. We will use something other than the doily but I wanted to post it tonight. A celebration of Sara's life will be this Saturday.

Love to you all, Peggy

Snowman Cartoon....

I love snowmen cartoons. Mary sent this one this morning in her emails. The only snow we have is that hanging around in the shade, just waiting for more flakes to join them. I hope you laugh.

Something to crochet....

I love this string of "popcorn" that Barb made for me. The "cranberries" are wooden beads.

If any of you would like to crochet this, maybe I can get Barb to give me the pattern to pass along. Happy Sunday.

Sweet Meadows Farm new pattern.....

I ordered this pattern from Sweet Meadows Farm . She has the actual dolls for sale on ebay. Aren't they Sweet!

There's no pattern for this guy. He must be 20 feet tall. He was outside the Festival of Trees at the Dearborn Performing Arts building.

And speaking of performing arts, we saw two rising stars yesterday, Sarah and Jennah, in 101 Dalmations! They had so many children who wanted to participate, there were two casts. Lots of proud families and friends (like us). Happy rainy Monday everyone.

Saturday make-over...

I hope I make you smile and say "I like your new dress". My old one was white with some embroidery on it but it was really in sad shape.

I hope your Saturday is a good one. Bye!

Thursday in Waltz....

I forgot to remind you all that Thursday was Thrift Store Thursday (you know, like Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Small Business Saturday). I missed out on the shopping and spent the day with PJ and Jeff. It was Put-Everything-Back Day-After-Painting day there.

This is one of my favorite places with little doggie art from J. Parks in Springfield.

She has lots of bears...and pillows......

A mirror from Flea Market to Fabulous in Springfield and a tussy-mussy and wreath from The Farm. We never see dried flower arrangements here in Michigan and I love them especially those grown by Gail.

Some of you, my friends, have been concerned about my gnome that went missing. PJ you are busted!

My camera is doing weird stuff so my pictures are not the best but you get the idea. This is another mirror from Flea Market to Fabulous, along with a family crock and twig branches from The Farm...

Things for the weekend are Barbara's craft show at Lutheran High West and a PLAY!, 101 Dalmations, with stars from our church, Living Water. Happy first Friday in December 2011.
