My neighbors have cleaned my drive and walk and even my car! Everyone is being Santa Claus to me.
I am cooking green beans and a chess pie and drinking coffee. Just wanted to say how much I appreciate my blogger friends and wish everyone a Merry Christmas.
P. S. That's a bit of real snow on Claus's boot. He just had to see if it was real. Love to all.

I love old photographs and like to make things using them. I think hers was made by her sister. I love it.

I was brought up with kneeling being a sign of ultimate respect and of profound emotion. That said, maybe we should all kneel, each of us for what we revere most.
I hope your day is filled with flowers!

The slimy toads adore me, they know I'm not a threat. I'd rather nap or crochet, I seldom ever fret.
My days of making potions.. are over, dead and gone, no one seems to trust me, afraid I'll get it wrong.
so former friends forsake me, but that's just fine you see...It's time to read a romance, and have a cup of tea...hee...hee.

I hope everyone is happy and well.

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.

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.

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.

At the end of the year, her whole family participates in the annual Walk for Diabetes .Last year our fund was $500 and we were really proud. Several in her family have diabetes and she has lost a grandson to this terrible illness. I also have many friends who struggle with it.
The pictures of the little baby dress is her latest contribution. It came to her from a dear friend and it belonged to her mother. You can see her name and date on the cute little tag. I will be taking it to Town Peddler soon but have delayed because of showing it to everyone. It has some stains along the hemline from age but it is just so pretty. The little buttons and hand embroidery and the lace on the bonnet are just perfect. I know that Alma would love seeing her mother's dress on the internet. Alma was a loving friend to Neen.
I was thinking I would have loved to have a picture of baby Mildred in her dress and bonnet. I'm also thinking it will be hard to part with.
We have had a windy, windy March 1st. It did come in like a lion. Love from Michigan.

Then I started this one today by Ron Marasco. I didn't think I would like it, but I read 100 pages just to start. I think I am going to be glad that I changed my mind. I hope you all get to read a book today, or at least 100 pages.
