Happy Birthday to Me

Yesterday was my birthday and a great one it was. I love spending time with my family and my son, daughter-in-law and the grandkids came over and hubby took us all out to an Italian restaurant for dinner-yummy. Then we came back to our house for cake.


My cutiepie grandkids.


Me at 63---look at that cake. Mmmm

Hubby gave me a new camera. One that fits into my purse that I’ve been wanting for awhile. It’s so cool.


My son is a fantastic photographer and he made this picture of Queen Ann’s Lace (my favorite) and gave it to me. It’s so beautiful and I’ll cherish it always.  Paige made a lovely handmade card for me from her and Tyler.

I had the most perfect day. I am blessed with a wonderful family.

Lovin’ The Fall

This is, without a doubt, my favorite time of year. Cool, crisp mornings. Beautiful days, not too hot.

I’ve been working on some jewelry but don’t have pictures yet. I hope to get some in the next couple of days.

Paige was here yesterday and wanted to experiment making dyes from plants. Since I have no idea of the proper way to do that I just let her have a go at it.




She came up with some interesting colors.  It turned out to be a fun project for her.
